A New Way To Discover - Relevance

Ever since launching Content Discovery, our goal is to help you explore fresh, trending, and amazing content about things that matter to you.

⭐ We are now introducing a new filter in the Discovery feature: Relevancy.

Relevance filter displays results on the basis of the relevance of the corresponding query.

⭐ Our Discovery feature is unique because it takes content discovery a step further:

⭐ It sorts results by taking into account the similarity score, domain rank, and freshness.

It's all about you and your interests.

⭐ We've also added Semantic Search and Contextual Search to our search engine.

This is meant to provide the results based on connections built using the knowledge graph. To further elaborate, it means the most contextually connected content corresponding to the user search query is presented to the user.

This also paves a way to get results not just for words, but also for phrases e.g. best machine learning algorithms.

⭐ That's why we have also refined the results to make sure you discover useful, relevant information and inspiration from high-authority sources on the internet for your marketing campaigns.

Note: This feature currently only works for the English language!

Youtube Video Automation - Add YouTube API to fetch Content

As YouTube continues to dominate to be the most popular video-sharing platform, the need for integrations of cutting-edge features and functionalities have become relentless!

User can add their own Youtube API key to run YouTube Automations.

But wait.. what exactly is an API?

API is the interface for programmers. It is a set of protocols, codes, and functions that programmers use to interact and work with on other software applications.

How does this help me?

Initially, there was difficulty to plan content from YouTube due to API quota restrictions.

But with this recent release, YouTube API can be added on the 'Other Integrations' page.

Here's how to create your own Youtube API Key.

Screenshot_from_2021-01-01_11-31-02.png

This API Key will help to fetch the required content from YouTube for 'Videos to Blog' and 'Videos to Social Media' automation!

TL;DR: Post away your favorite videos from YouTube at a click of a button! Of course, adding in a mixture of content for your socials (that means article links, graphics, infographics, videos, gifs, memes) will increase the engagement rate overall! 😊
