How our content aggregation service works
Our extensive crawling infrastructure is designed to meet the needs of enterprises looking to leverage the power of web data. This includes content aggregation from news portals, media websites, blogs and forums etc. Being a fully customizable solution, we work on the requirements on a case to case basis. The project starts with requirement gathering where you send us a list of websites from where you need to extract data. Our engineers then set up crawlers for each site in the list so as to extract the required data points as specified by you. The frequency of crawling and extraction is customizable and is set according to your demand. Once the crawler setup phase is complete, you should start receiving the extracted content via the various delivery methods provided by us. The data can be delivered in XML, JSON and CSV via FTP, API, Dropbox Amazon S3, Box and other popular mediums.
Applications of our context aggregation service
1. Brand monitoring
Brand monitoring has become a crucial activity for all customer-centric brands out there. With the vast number of options available to the customer in almost all industries and markets, prioritizing customer experience is of utmost importance. Brand monitoring helps companies understand their customers and stay updated to their voice, which in turn enables them to maintain a positive brand image in the market at all times. With the help of a content aggregation service, it’s possible to extract data pertaining to your brand from blogs, media sites and news portals.
2. News data aggregation
News portals need access to breaking news and trending information on the web, which are crucial to their functioning. Manual approach might not yield the necessary edge when it comes to news data aggregation and this is exactly where a content aggregation service can help. By extracting text content being posted on various websites in a near-real time frequency, news and media websites can have the upper hand in competition.
3. Machine learning training
Machine learning is one of the complex applications of a content aggregation service. With large amounts of text content at your disposal, it is possible to build sophisticated NLP systems which can solve various AI problems that need human interaction as a prerequisite. NLP or natural language processing algorithms basically work towards making human language interpretable for machines. NLP is heavily used in areas such as Translation, Natural Language Processing, Sentiment Analysis and more.
