With the industry today, we all want to be on top of our game. One way to do that is to be as close as possible to those who are already in the industry for a long time. One that you can say that he’s already a veteran in that specific field. His works are all over the place and has a lot of followers in social media. But are you having a hard time searching for an expert in your industry? Don’t fret because there are ways to find an expert. One of which is using Topsy.

Topsy is basically a search engine that includes social search that has an ability to connect you to your twitter account. Social search engine is an easy description of how Topsy works. It has social analytics and can give you all the information you need about your social media account. One thing I like about it is that it’s free. Well you can buy their Topsy Pro Analytics for more detailed information but we’ll stick to their free tool.

Finding a good tool is hard to find. Let alone have it for free. I know I’m being selfish if I say “I hope this tool still be free for the coming years” but I really do wish it stays for free. It’s a helpful tool for those unfortunate SEOs and marketers who can’t afford to buy a paid tool.

Here’s some steps on how to find an expert in Topsy:

Go to Topsy Experts search at http://topsy.com/experts. You can go directly to topsy.com/experts or go to the homepage at http://topsy.com/ and click underneath the Topsy logo, “Experts” and it will just go to the experts search.

On the search box provided, type in your industry, keyword or topic that you want to focus on.

Step2SearchTopsyExperts

It will then give you a list of people in twitter that tweets about your given industry, keyword or topic.

Step3ResultsExperts

You can click on their names and you’ll go to their Topsy profile page where you can see their information (their twitter profile description and location [if available]) and their tweets.

The good thing about topsy is that they also mention how influential is this expert is. You can see it on the left side of the Topsy Expert Profile page.

You can also see how many retweets they are getting in their tweets or having shared the same URL.
