Tweetmeme had been the undisputed emperor in the world of Twitter retweet based social bookmarking. Tweetmeme is currently serving more than 10M impressions of their buttons all over the internet daily. You might feel it wonder to know such a huge venture is handled by less than 10 employees at Tweetmeme.

ReTweet.com - popular links tracker on twitterToday, a competitor for Tweetmeme, Retweet.com has entered the business and started with huge campaigns to bring the best people into the field and give their business a kick. To attract more bloggers to use their service they have announced a prize of $10000 for a lucky winner if they (retweet.com) reach 1 Million page views in 1 month. Its really a matter of luck to win such a huge amount, but remember that only luck matters to win and not the performance of your blog with them.

Real retweet button from retweet.comThe buttons they call real retweet buttons are really cool for those who have gone blind for Tweetmeme retweet buttons, but currently they don’t have a proper code which you might want to add into your template so that it appears on every page of your blog nor they have any plugins yet.

Don’t you think this flurry of twitter retweet services and directories are causing too much of spam? I mean, the same short text is being aggregated by way too many services without adding any major search or discover feature (or grouping content better)

@ Ajith,

I agree with you, they are indeed rewriting the already existing text on the internet. We consider such duplicate content issues as a part of SEO, but in this case we need to make sure that not all websites are SEO driven – most of the twitter bases services are driven by tweets, tweets and tweets only. More the number of followers, more the visitors they get – they don’t need to care what Google thinks of them.

Just for example I am pasting the screenshot of google results for the top item at retweet.com, you can observe the original blog post is ranking at top followed by other blogs, twitter’s original tweet > a retweet and nowhere retweet.com or tweetmeme.com hold a place.
