August 26, 2010 – Federated Media has acquired a semantic profiling technology platform from semantic search startup TextDigger.

TechCrunch shared this news in their article, “Federated Media Buys Semantic Profiling Technology From TextDigger.”  TextDigger’s technology will allow owners of large content collections to add semantics indexing on top of an existing keyword search engine. Federated Media will use the new technology to add semantic technology to metatagging, filtering, topic extraction, and SEO. The technology can also be used for ad targeting and for semantic search engine optimization for a site or network of sites. This acquisition is a first for Federated Media and will help website owners make their content more engaging.

Semantic technology is advancing fast. It is ever more important to have someone with the expertise and knowledge handling your content.
