Straight outta Sweden comes Twingly, a European start-up that hopes to take spam out of the blog search recipe.
Concentrating primarily on the European blogger market, Twingly uses an innovative anti-spam algorithm that only includes genuine blog posts.
According to Twingly, the number of spam blogs have exceeded the number of authentic blog posts on the Web. No surprise given the fact that spam long ago became responsible for the majority of content sitting in our inboxes.
The company contends that large search engines such as Google have their hands full with too many projects, thus allowing blog search to suffer.
Twingly also has a “social search,” where actions of individual users improve the search results of others.
Want to give Twingly a test drive? Well, you might have to wait a bit before you can peruse spam-free search results. The site is currently in private beta and you will need to request an invite here.
Twingly promises the best of the blogs…we hope they deliver.
