Today we are very softly launching SEO Meme – an SEO news page powered by Twitter & Tweetmeme. The site displays popular SEO, social media and internet marketing related content with the most tweeted content making it’s way onto the homepage.

While the site has potential there are a few glaring errors caused by spammers and Twitter bots that re-tweet everything related to certain keywords. Over the next few weeks we will be totally blocking everything from Twitterfeed which will remove a lot of the spam. We will also be removing services like PRweb and other press release sites from the mix.

The goal is to become a passive social media site rather than an active one. This means that we are not going to be powered by votes like Sphinn and Digg because that relies on users actually bothering to vote for things. We want to display content based on the actions people are already taking without asking them to do anything different.

At present the site is powered by Tweetmeme and we are working with them to increase the quality of stories by improving the spam filtering.

All feedback gratefully received – please add the site to your favourites and take a look each day.

Free of charge. Unsubscribe anytime.
