OneRiot has updated their search algorithm to include real-time data for link indexing and ranking. Some of the search results from the real-time stream are powered by Digg and Twitter. OneRiot’s Pulse stream uses a similar ranking system as Google PageRank.
The Pulse search algorithm has been around since OneRiot launched, but they have improved it since then. Pulse’s results will be considered based on domain authority, timeliness, individual reputation, etc. Pulse accounts for credible Twitter and Digg users.
“We’re also getting a lot of leverage from our Artificial Intelligence systems that constantly ‘learn’ how to improve the way we rank results,” stated the OneRiot Blog recently.
