Filtrbox information service will use NewsGator’s metadata on 50 million Internet user actions every month

DENVER, Filtrbox has turned to NewsGator to boost the quality of the proactive market intelligence it provides to sales forces, executives, marketers and investors.

Every day, Filtrbox scours millions of online sources, both mainstream and new media, and delivers qualified business intelligence tailored for each client. As a result, organizations make better decisions based on breaking news, trends and competitive happenings.

Filtrbox’s sources include newspapers, blogs, Twitter, Google and a myriad of others. NewsGator Data Services now provides Filtrbox with a wealth of RSS content, including blogs and the metadata revealing each item’s popularity and usefulness. This metadata is used by Filtrbox’s proprietary FiltrRank™ content scoring.

“We analyze massive amounts of information to ensure the relevance and value of content we deliver,” said Ari Newman, Filtrbox founder and president. “NewsGator has just added attention metadata to the mix, so we can now use that to further boost the information used by FiltrRank™ to rate articles.”

NewsGator operates the world’s largest repository of free Internet content. This repository is the result of NewsGator’s pioneering RSS reading/delivery services. The company adds 9 million new articles to the repository every day, indexing and aggregating 4.6 million feeds and archiving four years of historical content. Millions of people interact with NewsGator products each day, generating more than 50 million relevance events each month.
