Surphace (formerly Sphere) provides contextual content tools that make connections between text, video, photos and ads. Surphace helps online publishers create a more engaging reader experience leading to longer time spent on site and increased PVs per visit along with a new incremental revenue stream. Surphace is currently integrated into over 150,000 leading sites and is live on over 1.2 Billion monthly article pages across the web.
Surphace's core technology is a patent-pending process utilizing Sphereâ€™s proprietary Content Genome.â„¢ The Content Genomeâ„¢ was developed specifically to deliver high-precision, low-cost (automated) related content delivery in dynamic online publishing and news environments. Unlike many other solutions, the Content Genomeâ„¢ does not require a taxonomy or training â€” Surphace can index any text artifacts, or media with associated text, and generate related content out of the box. Integration time on the publishersâ€™ side is minimal, and no additional meta-data is required.
Surphace has a broad range of partners including leading A-list publishers, micro-publishers and independent blogs.
