Two News Items from the GooglePlex: New Features Added to Google Docs & Hot Trends OneBox Added to Certain Search Results

First, in "Google Docs rolls out student-oriented features," Harrison Hoffman discusses several new features added to Google Documents.

From the News.com Article:

Google Docs' summer interns this summer were tasked with working on improvements and additions to the service geared toward students. The results of their work, now available to try out, include new features such as an equation editor, superscripts and subscripts, document translation, improvements to surveys, and more outlining options.

Second, Danny Sullivan reports on Search Engine Land that Google has added a new Hot Trends "OneBox" on certain search results pages.

From the SEL Article:

Starting around 3:45 Pacific Time today, those searching on topics that are spiking or “hot” in popularity should see a new Hot Trends OneBox near the bottom of the search results page and just above the related search area...

The article is illustrated with several examples and also provides a brief history of Hot Trends and its parent, Google Trends.

Note: The number of Hot Trends visible has been reduced from 100 to 40. The Sullivan article explains why.

Finally, Sullivan points out that Bing has offered a service similar to Hot Trends named xRank dating back to two years.

Direct to Bing xRank
The only way to find out about xRank is to find a link (when available in the left rail of a results page, directly above the related searches link) like this one for Michael Jackson or by going directly to the xRank site. It will be interesting to see if Bing now begins integrating xRank results on to web results pages.
