HELSINKI, Finland, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Leiki, Ltd, a leading provider of content discovery solutions for publishers and advertisers announce today that it has agreed with Outbrain, Inc, to enhance the relevancy of their related and sponsored content delivery. As a result of this cooperation, consumers will see content recommendations that are more directly relevant to the articles they are reading and publishers and sponsors will enjoy higher consumer engagement.
Outbrain will use the Leiki Focus semantic engine to analyze web pages using the Leiki-proprietary 130,000 contextually definitive topics. The resulting weighted profile consists of the 50-200 most relevant topics and provides a highly accurate and detailed "context fingerprint". Outbrain will use this as part of their core delivery system to find matching articles from within the publisher's domain as well as among the Outbrain sponsored content network.
Leiki Focus is currently being used around the globe by leading publishers, advertisers, financial institutions, and government entities to deliver matching articles, videos, social media and products. Major use cases in the US include brand safety filtering to protect advertisers from undesirable content, B2C and B2B ad targeting, consumer analysis for business intelligence, and contextual and personalized video delivery. Leiki Focus and the ontology upon which it is built is the product of more than ten years of applied research by a dedicated team of linguists and big-data engineers spanning hundreds of deployments.
Leiki will be presenting their Smart Services in a showcase organized on July 23 by the Consulate General of Finland in New York.
