How to create a custom content recommendation?

TrenDemon enables you to create custom content recommendations, either to pages on your site, or to pages and videos anywhere from the web. The ability allows you to promote pages and articles outside your site, or to drive bring ad-hoc more visitors to a certain content item, regardless of TrenDemon’s automated ranking and selection algorithms.

Important! – Even when configuring a custom content item to promote, TrenDemon’s personalization engine is still active. That means┬áthat if a visitor has already read that item, they will be offered another article by our content recommendation unit. If, after you’ve created a custom content item, you are not seeing the article in the unit, one reason could be that you’ve already visited there. To make sure this is not the case, open your browser in incognito mode and see if the issue persists.
