Google are rolling out their new search indexing system ‘Caffeine’, claiming that it enables searches to be 50% faster, as well as more comprehensive and more accurate and relevant.
In addition to the Twitter ‘firehose’ that Bing (and Google) already use, the engineers at Microsoft have turned on a feed from Facebook to incorporate data into its search results.

The Ad Planner 1000 list is published monthly for the top 1000 global sites by unique users.

Other key content network tools include an ‘above the fold’ filter to ensure adds appear above the fold and frequency capping.
