Real-Time Search – 5 Reasons Why
If you don't understand why the Actual Time Web is immense, you will soon.Thanks to micro-blogging sites like Twitter, a constant stream of human-posted content has infiltrated the Web. This growing infiltration has created a bottoms up approach to content creation that by the progressive support of quickly developing applications has and will continue to empower every individual to co-create what is deemed as "important" on the Web. The Actual Time Web serves as both the database that informs us of what is happening right "Now" and the human touch to the content that will compete with the traditional algorithms for what is deemed as "valuable" content to us all.Its challenges lie in the filtration and mass integration of both the content and the act of sharing to the Actual Time Web.
There stay major aspects of the Web that have not yet integrated "searching" and "sharing" of the Actual Time Web, including traditional search. But as filtration and integration progress the Web will take the kind of a living breathing database.Here are 5 reasons why Actual Time Search will help the Actual Time movement change the Web and your experience forever.
1. The "Now" FactorThey saw it with Michael Jackson's passing. They saw it with the Iran Protests and they see it increasingly everyday -- the Actual Time web provides us with what is happening right "Now" and with vivid detail from around the globe. "We" is driving the "Now" factor.
2. They Become Co-CreatorsThe Real-Time web offers us the ability to become co-creators in not only content but also in what is deemed important. Why? Because they pick what is worth sharing, discussing and having opinions on. This behavior serves as a natural choice of valuable content. Definitely the current web allows for creation of content, but what is deemed as important/valuable is mostly left up to a few individuals, organizations and a bunch of robots. The Real-Time web, six times fully integrated, will change that.
3. Humans vs MachinesHave you ever clicked on blue links that lead you to a piece of content dating back to a year ago? Search results lose relevancy each day due to the amount of new content hitting the net. Spiders, web crawlers and engines pick what content is relevant by algorithms and those results can be manipulated by intelligently structured content (SEO). Real-time search permits users to get information by conversations and people in lieu of machines. Take a glance at your web results today. Would you get icy content determined by algorithms or what the crowd and people value as nice and bad?
4. Facebook FactorWith over 300 million users generating and wrapping themselves around content, six times Facebook opens up its search API to the net what do you think will happen? Better yet do you think there is value in being able to search a database of 300 million users' opinions and experiences? Searching Facebook may be the factor that tips the general experience of the net in to one that is very different than today. Facebook may be the tipping point to where bottoms up (sharing & contributing) will go head to head with tops down (crawling & optimizing).
5. A New Breed of Search EnginesIf there existed a search engine that could aggregating and rendering results based on what was shared, peoples opinions and conversations, would you are interested in that search engine? In case you knew that there were 6 conversations that provided an brilliant account of a design firm you were thinking about would that be more valuable to you than the top 3 links on your current search engine results? Would you have more value for SEO based search results or human conversation driven results? How about both? Real-Time search, six times developed, will render a new breed of search engines that will capture this new value the New Web has to offer.At the moment, Actual Time Search is only in its infancy, as is the Actual Time web.
Twitter and the like are basically representations of a massive movement that will continue to occur with the creation of more similar services, more adoption of those services and more integration of those is clear is that our every day use of the Actual Time Web's driving platforms -- Twitter, Facebook and the like -- is unprecedented. The Web is no longer basically a disconnected 3rd party container of tops down aggregation, "We" is now part of its determination. And, search as they know it will soon change to accommodate, thereby delivering a different experience of the Web.
