Twitter is working on a Real time search engine and this might be change the face of twitter
Zdnet broke a story about the same
Santosh Jayaram who was VP , Search Quality , Google is now VP of Operations at Twitter .
SEO will have a new term – after Google Optimization and Yahoo, get read for Twitter Optimization
Soon Twitter will crawl tweeted urls and index the content.
This will be used to display results inside twitter.
Spammers who post crap links as tweets will die a slow death if this feature goes live
Also useless retweets will now go down the drain.
Off late twitter has been information overload to me after RSS overload.
IM really excited to see this decision by twitter in organizing the data better.
Also , when you have such data , Contextual ads will do really well. Twitter is not going to keep making losses for long
Imagine a user searching for mobile phones is reading a tweet pointing to http://fonearena.com
Advertisers who usually advertise on the site will love to target the potential user base of fonearena.
It gives them more ROI than advertising on a tweet pointing to say my personal blog
only time will tell whats going to happen
