Northcliffe trials semantics

Fascinating story from Hold the Front page which reports on a new initaitive from Northcliffe.

The compnay has begun the roll-out of a new system of linking to related stories in its online articles. Called "topic pages," the initiative has been launched and will be rolled out across the rest of the thisis network of newspaper companion sites over the next few weeks.

The pages will will automatically generate internal links in stories from key words and phrases after the pages are reviewed semantically.

The system is beiong trialled in Bristol
