Lebron James' Shot & Google's Time sensitivity

Anyone seen that three-pointer by Lebron James in the second game?
In case anyone isn't familiar with basketball that much: Michael Jordan once hit a legendary shot against Cleveland which has ever since been referred to as "The Shot". A few days ago Lebron James (who plays for Cleveland) hit an incredible three-pointer (after an inbounds pass and only 1 second being left on the clock) to win the game instead of losing the second consecutive game in this play-off series. People/the media started referring to it as "the shot" suggesting Cleveland could now get over "the shot" michael jordan made in the past, because lebron james now made a similar shot in favor of cleveland.

If you google for "the shot" than Michael Jordan's shot is still near the top of Google (a wikipedia page) and a few youtube videos, etc. however there's a google news result and a fox sports story page in the top 10 which both are about lebron james' shot.

Just thought I'd mention it...as I find it interesting to observe that google has such a new event in their top10 twice (the google news, and from another domain)...it reminds me of when I read that NY times article...google realizing that for some phrases they would have to favor time-sensitive results in their algorithms, etc.

Re: Lebron James' Shot & Google's Time sensitivity

Btw, yahoo doesn't serve a result about LBJ's shot, but about the michael jordan shot (at least they get I might be looking for a basketball related result), whereas MSN and ask don't even see I might be looking for basketball.

Google > Yahoo > MSN/ASK

Seems like the distribution of market share is actually fair then again this is just on example

Good finding. Hope you would have checked Google's new option "Past year results" that will help you for more research

Best,
