Ok – We’re OneRiot – a real time search engine that finds “the pulse of the web”The pulse of the web is the news, videos and products that people are talking about right now in relation to any search term….So… let’s search for something that’s interesting right now… how about Ted Kennedy
<<<<OneRiot screenshot hyper-linked to WEBPAGE for search demo>>>So it turns out that what everyone is talking about right now concerning Ted Kennedy isdeath. This is the pulse of the web – the news and videos that people are talking about right now. This is what 40% of searchers are looking for. Now if I searched on Yahoo <do this> or Live or Google for Ted Kennedy, what I’d get is the Ted Kennedy wikipedia page, or his official website. It’s library style information – dependable stuff, but not reflective of why people are searching for that term… Do this on Twitter and I get a bazillion results. And they are conversation, not websites Can be hard to digest Oneriot results are socially relevant, very fresh, and reflect what people are talking about right now.So how do we do what we do? What makes us different, and how do we get the freshest results on the web….

Then go crawl those pages and index them in realtime. Supplement that without own data set… we have a community of about 2million users who opt in to share information with us as they surf the web. From this attention data, we can determine what’s hot or not for a particular term right now.This means our index is full of fresh, socially relevent information.
PulseRank reflects current social buzzSeveral factors FreshnessDomain authority People authority – who is sharing this link on twitter?
