Time to get Wowd
Today the first search engine to explore the Power of the Real-Time Web were made available at the Web2.0 Summit in San Francisco. The search engine Wowd.com makes use of social networks, twitter, and other real-time data and therefore moving away from the traditional way of referencing algorithms that search engines like Google are making use of. What this mean is that whatever is buzzing on the web will be listed on a Hot List and allows the user to see what the latest trends are. It places the power of search with its users instead of the crawlers or conventional page ranking. For the best experience and download their browser app. We hope to get a mobile version soon as we can see this being key for the mobile community where on the fly breaking trends are needed on a small screen.
