DAYTON, OH, and NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 5, 2006 –
LexisNexis U.S., a leading provider of information and services solutions, and Newstex, the Content On Demand™ company, today announced an alliance to deliver Blogs On Demand ™ via the LexisNexis® online service. Newstex Blogs On Demand makes available full-text blog content from premier Weblogs in a wide variety of categories including art, career, economics, environment, finance, food, health, law, marketing, medical, technology, video games and many more.
Unlike existing Web-based blog aggregation services, Newstex actually licenses influential blog content directly from independent bloggers and then takes in each carefully selected blog feed in text format and uses its proprietary NewsRouter technology to scan it in real-time.
“Many of our customers want to track and segment what key influencers are saying in their blogs in addition to the traditional news outlets,” said Dawn Conway, vice president of Content and Business Development for LexisNexis. “Adding full-text blogs from Newstex helps meet this customer demand.”
Larry Schwartz, Newstex president, added, “By delivering a feed of this blog content to LexisNexis, their customers will immediately enjoy commentary on a wide variety of topics from influential bloggers in the world.”
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 proprietary PeopleTickering™—a system that synthesizes metadata from numerous premium sources and quality blogs to create a database of people who make the news.
