About Topsy & Realtime Search:

  • The social web is changing how consumers are exposed to and consume content. According to Twitter, 90 million tweets are created each day (as of Sep. 2010), with 25 percent of these tweets containing links.
  • Today's most important (and fastest growing source of) content is that being created and shared by key influencers within the social web. As a result, social graphs are quickly replacing PageRank as the new "signal" for what is relevant.
  • Topsy results are powered by influencers tweeting about content within the social web, bringing consumers relevant, realtime results that correspond to the keyword, article or topic they are looking for.
  • Topsy's platform is designed for true web-scale search and powered by the largest searchable index of Twitter data. Publishers are turning to Topsy to power realtime content on their sites.
  • Topsy makes realtime data from the social web relevant and provides superior search results that are noise-free, scalable and brand-friendly -- increasing engagement and monetization rates.

About OneRiot & Realtime Ad Networks:

  • OneRiot syndicates millions of realtime search ads daily today for search partners. The company expects this to grow significantly as consumer demand continues to drive that segment of the search industry forward.
  • Realtime search is most effectively monetized with realtime search ads. Realtime search ads match the audience intent of discovering "what's hot, right now." This is distinct from the audience behavior on traditional search portals, where the user is typically trying to find specific factual information, often from a predetermined domain. A different user behavior requires a different type of advertising product -- one that matches users' intent on the realtime social web. This is what OneRiot's advertising product does.
  • OneRiot matches advertiser campaign content to trends as they emerge across the social web in realtime, automatically delivering ads that are "relevant right now" and enabling advertisers to reach an audience at key moments of engagement.
  • OneRiot leverages its proprietary Trending Topics Engine and realtime indexing and ranking capabilities to dynamically construct relevant ad creative and deliver a message that resonates with the realtime web audience at just the right time. As a result, the advertiser does not need to keep up with trends to generate new ad content or buy new keywords; a major advantage of the OneRiot advertising platform for an advertiser seeking to reach the fast-moving realtime audience.
  • OneRiot reaches more than 100 million social influencers across an exclusive network of realtime social web apps and services, with advertising products for search, display and mobile. Advertising Network distribution partners include leading Twitter apps like Ubertwitter, Echofon and Seesmic; top media sharing sites like yfrog, TwitGoo and TwitVid; popular realtime discovery services like Kosmix and now Topsy; as well as a host of handpicked publisher sites like JPG Magazine.
