Interesting concept for a company looking to posit itself in the already heated analytics space…
Parse.ly Will Launch Its Pageview-Generating Machine Called “Dash” This Month | TechCrunch: “Dash aims to help publishers increase pageviews by providing insight into what topics are trending and what topics they should write more about or less about, among other things. But most importantly, its predictive analysis engine is able to recommend what topics publishers should cover right now to be on top of future trends. Simply put, it’s a pageview-generating machine.”
Dash sounds like it might have the predictive chops to fill a gap between aggregate analytics programs and more real time programs by focusing on the predictive side of things.
The question will be whether it actually works for niche sites and not just mega Twitter-style trends.
If Dash does work well with niche traffic predictive analysis, it could be a very very useful tool for affiliates.
Keep an eye out.
