Saplo Releases New Widget For News Sites

June 4th, 2010 by Mattias Tyrberg

The past couple of weeks we have been working on an update for our Tags & Match Widget. The Widget is today primarily used by Swedish News Sites and display entity tags and related articles based on what the user is currently reading.

As many of you already know, Saplo´s main focus is to create an outstanding API for Text Analytics. What´s interesting with our new Widget is that we have built it entirely based on our API. This means that developers with access to our API could easily do the exact same thing.

Some of the news in Saplo Widget:

  • Easy to use administration panel
  • Blacklist
  • Multiple User Accounts
  • Edit Entity Tags
  • Customizable Widget design

Important coming features:

  • Add and edit related articles
  • Statistics on Widget performance

Our metrics have shown that more then 1 (%) percentage of all visitors have clicked on a tag or related article presented by Saplo Widget. We are very excited to see if and how the placement of the Widget and the design of the Widget will affect the click-through-rate. When we know we will share the news.

We have been working on improvements for the Widget based on extremely valuable feedback from an amazing customer of ours. Big thanks and keep it coming!
