NewsGator Releases Related Content Services

Dec 05, 2008

NewsGator has released a set of Related Content services. The New Related Stories and Related Topics widgets post, next to every story, contextually relevant headlines and/or topic key words linking to additional stories. The Related Stories widget offers readers headlines of interest. When they click on a headline, a fly-out window appears with the opening paragraphs of the story. Another click reveals the full article. The Related Topics widget automatically presents contextually related topics to readers as key words. Readers click on the key word of interest and are redirected to a new page of stories relevant to the key word. Publishers who wish to supplement their own content with related stories from third parties can draw on the NewsGator RSS database, a repository of free content. Publishers can control their widgets’ look and feel, search action, and content sources through Editor’s Desk, a NewsGator-hosted platform.
