The web pages people care about change every minute of the day and so do the videos that people want to watch
Boulder, CO (Vocus) March 10, 2009
Boulder, Colo. and San Francisco March 10, 2009-- OneRiot, the social search engine that finds the pulse of the web, is unveiling today the world's first real-time web search for video. This enables users to find video results that reflect what people are buzzing about right now.
Traditional video search engines often return out-of-date content, rarely reflecting the current buzz. OneRiot has created the first real-time index of video on the web. Searching for videos on OneRiot returns results that reflect what people are watching, sharing and twittering right now. For example, a query for 'Rihanna' on OneRiot's real-time video search will return the freshest, most socially-relevant videos – such as Oprah's candid warning to the songstress not to reconcile with Chris Brown.
"The web pages people care about change every minute of the day and so do the videos that people want to watch," said Kimbal Musk, CEO of OneRiot. "Our unique approach to search enables users to find the news and videos that real people are buzzing about in real-time"
OneRiot delivers video results from across the entire web including YouTube, Hulu, MSNBC, ESPN, MetaCafe, and many others. Thanks to the constant help of its two million-strong community, OneRiot's real-time index of video is updated based on the content people are consuming, wherever that might be on the web, at this very moment.
OneRiot launched an Alpha version of the search engine in November 2008 which focused on delivering the news, stories and websites that people are buzzing about. The launch of OneRiot's real-time web search for video coincides with the service moving from Alpha to Beta, in addition to a fresh website design.
Launched in November 2008, OneRiot is a real-time search engine that that finds the pulse of the web. Thanks to the constant help of more than two million users, OneRiot makes it easy for anyone to find the news and videos that people are talking about right now. Unlike any other search engine, OneRiot prioritizes web pages based on its current popularity with real people. OneRiot delivers search results that are fresh, friendly, and pulsing with the real-time energy of the web.
