Wordnik Releases New Recommended Content Product for Publishers

San Mateo, Calif., (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

Wordnik, creator of the worlds largest online dictionary, today announced the open beta release of its new product, Related Content by Wordnik. Built with Wordniks patent-pending word-powered technology, Related Content by Wordnik brings relevant content to web audiences and surfaces additional content for publishers. Now available as a WordPress plug-in or a JavaScript snippet, the product can be installed for free on virtually any site including static sites and major blogging platforms.

Based on Wordniks proprietary word graph and natural language processing technology, Related Content by Wordnik identifies connections between related pieces of content and recommends the most relevant posts to readers. The product, using its proprietary algorithms, analyzes essential parts of a website page or blog post, including the tags, title, categories, and body. It then surfaces and displays related pages with similar content. Related posts, videos, and articles from a publishers own site or from other websites in the Wordnik partner network are delivered as links for readers.

Related Content by Wordnik does a great job of crawling our site to display relevant content in an aesthetically pleasing turnkey product, that we found increases time on site and page views and provides a more engaging user experience overall, said Ari Cox, publisher of Sub5Zero, a blog dedicated to high-performance cars. Wordnik has succeeded for us where other content discovery services have failed.

Through its network of thousands of sites, Related Content by Wordnik increases readers exposure to site content and boosts traffic. Publishers gain access to a wider selection of content from partner sites that they can share with their existing visitors. Publishers also attract new visitors when their content is linked to via partner sites. Searchable links (indexable by search engines) also help drive traffic to publishers sites by improving page rankings in search results.

The word graph technology we built to power Wordniks community was designed to find and highlight relevant examples as an element of our word definition search, said Tony Tam, CEO, at Wordnik. This same technology is extremely useful in helping publishers attract new visitors with interesting content and keep them engaged longer. With Related Content by Wordnik, were providing publishers with a powerful product to share additional relevant information that their readers are more likely to click on and as a result, spend more time exploring a site. The publishers in our network are experiencing up to 10% click-through rates.
