  • Patent number: 9965567
    Abstract: A content management system generates views of digital content for presentation on a user client. The content management system includes different publication templates having different layouts for presenting content on different types of viewing devices. The publication template is based on a layout, which specifies a spatial arrangement of sections. The publication template associates publication elements such as a leading article with sections of a layout. A view matches components such as an article with sections of a publication template based on a mapping between the components and publication elements associated with the sections. The content management system generates different views for different types of viewing devices. The content management system also analyzes interactions between user clients, components, and views, and the content management system includes an analytics interface to present data about these interactions.

  • Patent number: 9619467
    Abstract: A dynamic classification dictionary is built for use in profiling and targeting users for additional relevant content. Behavioral data is gathered from user activity, and user documents and actions are categorized. Author-generated document classification information is analyzed and assigned a first taxonomic noun to characterize the document. User-generated tags characterizing a portion of the document are assigned a second taxonomic noun. Search terms that resulted in the user accessing the document are identified and assigned a third taxonomic noun. Attributes related to the manner in which the document was accessed are evaluated and assigned a fourth taxonomic noun. The document is processed using pattern rules to extract a fifth taxonomic noun. The taxonomic nouns are aggregated into a composite set of taxonomic nouns, and the dynamic classification dictionary is built by storing the composite set of taxonomic nouns.
