You may know bitly for their popular shortened link service, well from today you may also know them from their new viral search powered on sed shortened links.

The service finds how many people have clicked on any one of the links at any given time and sorts them by keyword, topic, country, language, social network it appeared or by a particular website.

Unlike most services, Realtime doesn’t compare links by how much they are shared and instead compares by them by how many comments the page has received.

It does seem like a really useful tool for developers and websites to finally get their name out, that is if everyone actually starts using Bit.ly again, which is the main reason for the service expanding.

Currently it’s in a Private Beta, so if you want access you will have to sign up on the Realtime site and then wait for your invite.
