LexisNexis Delivers Blog Content via Newstex

Apr 07, 2006

LexisNexis U.S., a provider of information and services solutions, and Newstex, a Content On Demand company, have announced an alliance to deliver Newstex Blogs On Demand via the LexisNexis online service. Newstex Blogs On Demand makes available full-text blog content from Weblogs in categories including art, career, economics, environment, finance, food, health, law, marketing, medical, technology, video games, and more.

Newstex actually licenses blog content directly from independent bloggers and then takes in each selected blog feed in text format and uses its NewsRouter technology to scan it in real-time. Newstex automatically tags each blog post with company names, stock tickers, key executives and government officials, and detailed topical categories. Each blog post delivered as part of Newstex Blogs On Demand will include Newstex's PeopleTickering--a system that synthesizes metadata from numerous sources and blogs to create a database of people who make the news.
