Google Adds Search by Number Feature

Search by Number offerings include:
- UPS tracking numbers example search: [1Z9999W999999999]
- FedEx tracking numbers example search: [fedex 999999999999]
- Patent numbers example search: [patent 5123123]
- FAA airplane registration numbers (usually found on tail): [n199ua]

Google by Number is available now on Google.com to all English language users throughout the world. International versions will be made available in the coming months. More information can be found here: http://www.google.com/help/features.html#number. The company seeks suggestions for other types of numbers to search.
