Share Article

As user-generated conversations become the dominant form of online media, consumers and marketers alike are seeking new ways to tap into the dialogue and become part of the conversation. Enter samepoint.com, a Web 2.0 start-up that offers a different type of search engine - one that monitors conversations taking place across the major social media points of interaction.

Conversational search represents the next wave in search technology, as user-generated content becomes an increasingly important form of online expression. But conversational search is more than searching Twitter. We want to provide consumers and marketers with a real-time pulse of people's point of view on any topic that's being discussed

In Beta for the past two months, samepoint.com has been tracking millions of conversations, taking place across hundreds of thousands of the most influential blogs and social media sites. User-generated discussions are typically not indexed by major search engines, such as Google, as they do not reside on static pages. samepoint.com converts these discussions into web pages, or permalinks, and organizes them by topic being discussed. Users can save searches as RSS alerts and create their own comment feeds or subscribe to pre-defined feeds on popular topics of the day.

"As an aggregator, we are able to serve as the nexus where these conversations meet, providing a common point, or same point, of all discussions on a specific topic," explained Richard Krueger, samepoint Chief Conversations Officer.

In addition to Twitter, samepoint searches comments on popular social news sites, such as Digg and Delicious, video sites such as YouTube and Truveo, reviews from Amazon and Yelp, discussion boards from Yahoo, and many more popular services.
