Competitive or collaborative? Are search and recommendation chalk and cheese or will they seamlessly blend?
Are search and recommendation two ends of a spectrum with all information discovery tools somewhere in between? Our 2nd September event explores the issues for publishers, brands and business.
How can brands capitalise on recommendation sites? Is there a significant difference between trusted communities and the wisdom of crowds?
Can the lure of affiliate revenue affect non-user-generated recommendations, or the hierarchy of results?
Join us to explore the issues and opportunities surrounding the overlapping search and recommendation space...
