Sépage Puts Its Full Faith in Semantic Technologies

sepageWe recently highlighted French startup Sépage’s efforts to use semantic technologies to revolutionize travel websites. Tnooz has taken a more comprehensive look at what this company is hoping to achieve: “Milan Stankovic was frustrated that the semantic web was failing to break free from academia. Disparaging remarks from a Google director about the potential of the semantic web in the mainstream prompted him to take the plunge and found Sépage. The idea is to use semantic technology to take personalization, inspiration and recommendations to the next level. With a SaaS business model, using proprietary and patented technology, its core product GlobeAdvent came to market within 18 months of the business’ launch. Enhancements and new products are in the pipeline.” Read more

About the Webinar

Register Now!Semantic technology solves a concrete problem: sorting through large collections of unstructured data. With unstructured data expected to account for over 80 percent of all data within the next five years, the ability to target this data using semantic technology opens doors to better understand context and intent in search, and ultimately achieve greater visibility and relevant results. This presentation will showcase how semantic technologies can understand article content and select contextually relevant adverts to most effectively monetize content for advertisers and publishers.

  • Discover how semantic technology helps thousands of advertisers reach their audience in a meaningful way, and helps hundreds of online publishers monetize their content.
  • Learn how semantic technology reduces errors and time spent by marketers when defining their campaigns and yield better overall results.
  • Understand some of the challenges that come with semantic technologies and how to address them ahead of time.
  • Go behind the scenes with semantic and linguistic processing of web pages.

We hope you will join us on October 15, 2014 for this free webinar.

How Semantic Search Predicts the Future

11066925735_dbe0318b25Daniel Newman of Forbes recently wrote his third and final article in a series on the future of marketing and how that future is interwoven with semantic search. Newman writes, “The internet is getting smarter and this growing intelligence and insights is populating a new kind of semantic web that is providing more than just the most relevant results for people searching, but also some key data to marketers that may just tell us about intent. For movie fans out there, you may remember the movie Minority Report. In this Tom Cruise feature film the star would go out and stop crimes before they would happen as intelligence reached a point where it could see a crime that was about to be committed. At the time the concept seemed pretty far fetched, but really this type of intelligence is very similar to how the semantic web may be able to tell you who may be your next big customer.” Read more

Semantic Search is the Future of Marketing

droidsDaniel Newman of Forbes recently wrote, “Businesses today are largely online and they have in droves taken their web presence from where it was a few years ago which was likely an “Online Brochure” to some type of second generation website that considers trends such as social media, content marketing, and of course search engine optimization. The reason we as business owners do all of this isn’t because we love technology (not all of us, at least), but rather because we know that people are doing more and more of their research about what they want to buy, and who from, online.” Read more

How to Align Content Marketing and Semantic Search Optimization

gooauth

Dave Lloyd of ClickZ recently wrote, “2014 has been heralded the year of content marketing. At the same time, we’re optimizing our search marketing practices for the semantic search environment. Together, there’s a need to merge the two different objectives into a unified strategy. From a search marketing perspective, it makes sense to integrate content marketing and semantic search optimization practices. The introduction of Hummingbird has taught us to deploy search optimization strategies that contextualize queries. Digital marketing with content, on the other hand, is deployed to drive traffic and engage prospects. You can see where the two might combine to form a natural single-track strategy, right?
