SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Skimlinks launched SkimWords 2.0, the newest innovation in its highly advanced in-text monetization solution for Web publishers. SkimWords 2.0 is the first real-time, fully automated content monetization solution to feature in-text product and price comparison across multiple verticals – including consumer electronics, fashion, beauty, mothering, automotive, and lifestyle categories.  With SkimWords 2.0, publishers earn incremental revenues, consumers are directed to the optimal retail site to make their purchases, and advertisers receive highly qualified traffic.




Innovative Technology

Coupling innovative technology from the company's recent acquisition of AtmaLinks with its advanced computational linguistics and semantic algorithms, this new version of SkimWords quickly analyzes page content and now delivers in-text price comparison in real-time. With unparalleled accuracy and speed, SkimWords 2.0 automatically detects product references in content and turns them into monetizable affiliate links.

"We have completely re-engineered SkimWords so it can now automatically and in real-time detect very specific product phrases, and deliver in-text product and price comparisons from the most relevant retailers," said Alicia Navarro, CEO and Co-founder of Skimlinks. "The net result for publishers is a more lucrative monetization solution that is also an informative user tool, helping consumers find the prices and retailers for the products they are reading about. Our new version of SkimWords achieves the right balance between high yield for publishers and high utility for consumers."
