Lingospot’s patented semantic topic recognition and ranking technology allows online publishers to offer their visitors opportunities to discover additional content about the topics they are most interested in. Lingospot is working with a broad range of online media companies including newspapers, magazines, TV networks, content aggregators and bloggers. The company’s clients include world-class online media companies such as Forbes, the McClatchy Company and British Sky Broadcasting.
Using its statistical natural language processing algorithm and drawing on a proprietary index of over 2 billion pages, Lingospot has identified over 30 Million popular topics. Such topics include not only proper names (such as people, places, companies, products, etc.) but, more importantly, concepts such as “hybrid vehicles”, “mortgage refinancing”, “exotic vacations”, “retirement planning”, etc. This incredible breadth of topics allows publishers to offer their visitors a wide range of opportunities to dig in deeper into their content archives, while giving advertisers a tool to topic-target visitors based on their signaled interests.
