LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Forbes.com (www.forbes.com) announced today the debut of Lingospot's content discovery technology on the Forbes.com Markets and Personal Finance channels.

Lingospot (www.lingospot.com), which enables readers to access contextually relevant content based on key terms in a story, will roll out across all nine Forbes.com channels as well as Forbes.com affiliated web sites in the upcoming weeks.

When a user scrolls over a keyword or phrase in an article, a Lingospot Content Discovery Bubble appears. Each bubble allows Forbes.com users to discover related content across the Forbes.com web site, including the Forbes.com Video Network, and affiliated sites ForbesAutos.com, ForbesTraveler.com, Clipmarks.com, Investopedia.com and RealClearPolitics.com. The Lingospot service also provides users access to related articles from the nearly 600 blogs that comprise the recently launched Forbes.com Business and Finance Blog Network. Content categories include: articles, definitions, videos, clipped articles (using the Clipmarks technology) and blogs.

"We are excited to be one of the first web sites to integrate this powerful technology," said Jim Spanfeller, President and CEO of Forbes.com. "Lingospot allows Forbes.com visitors to discover and easily access content across our affiliated properties and select content partners, which should further enhance their online experience."

Based on natural language processing and search technologies, the Lingospot service is completely automated while allowing Forbes.com editors to have full control over the keyword selection process.

"We are thrilled that Forbes.com has selected Lingospot to be its technology partner," said Nikos Iatropoulos, CEO of Lingospot. "Our goal is to ensure that we find interesting and relevant content to enhance the experience of every Forbes.com user who interacts with the Lingospot service."
