News, Blog and Forum data in Lexer Listen

How does Lexer consume news, blog, and forum content?

Lexer makes the ability to search news, blog, and forum content available to all users of Listen and Engage. We do this through a 3rd party data provider, and monitor key topics to bring in only content that is relevant to your business. Our data partner is actively monitoring thousands of news, blog, and forum webpages, and will only consume content from webpages that permit crawling.

Does Lexer include paywall content?

Lexer does not actively consume paywall content from news sites, however some publishers do make small snippets available, or previews of paywalled articles, that our data partner can occasionally consume.
