Business description: Baynote offers revolutionary content guidance for business websites. By using the collective “wisdom of community” — the proven, known behaviors of peers, topic experts, and the greater business community – we guide users to the most useful information and knowledge available on every corporate site. By enhancing standard search technologies, we offer an entirely new way for users to find information: We combine each user’s interests, knowledge, and history with insights gleaned from the community. Then we simply and easily guide that visitor to the most useful content, applications, and links, until they reach their goals. Saying we understand how your visitors will interact with your website is a big claim. Our founders – some of the greatest minds from Stanford University and Silicon Valley – have spent years studying how community knowledge is formed and evolves. Our service is delivered on-demand and works with any search technology and any business website. We offer success-based pricing and a free trial making it simple to get started.
