Some Examples of Algorithmically Detected Evergreen Stories


Interest in evergreen story detection algorithms is driven by the underlying economics that characterize publishers’ archives. Publishers’ archives can be hugely valuable to readers, but remain mostly inaccessible to readers due to the cost of finding content in those archives. Thus, it is important to lower the cost of finding content in those archives to the point where the value to the reader exceeds the cost to the reader. In this case, the market maker is an evergreen story detection algorithm.

What follows is a collection of evergreen stories from four clients – ABlogToWatch, Make, Convince & Convert, and CFO. These stories were automatically detected by Contextly’s evergreen story detection algorithm. These examples are characterized by one or more of the following features: How-To/DYI, Reviews, Advisory/Educational, Timelessness, Timeliness.
