But when we asked Gary about that at SMX Israel, he said that was the plan but he wouldn't confirm a 100% if it would be this release. If something happened, they might release an update without it being real time.
Last night, Gary Illyes from Google said on Twitter that the next update will be the real time version, which he said is a "huge change."
Here is the tweet:
@forefront1 it will be an update to the algorithm. The new iteration will be realtime which is a huge change— Gary Illyes (@methode) November 23, 2015
When is it coming? Well, the end of the year is only about 5 weeks away, so it is happening really soon.
I think the "huge change," isn't necessarily about the shake up it may cause in the search results, but in terms of it being real time.
