Artificial intelligence for forums

Last fall, a customer shared the following with me:

"I know we have great content in our forum.  A lot of it ranks really well in Google.  But most of our users are drive-bys: They come to us through Google Search, look at a page, and leave.  Is there anything we can do to increase engagement and hopefully also boost ad revenue?"

Why I started Threadloom

Posted by Paul Lee on February 12, 2016 at 12:00 PM
