Advanced Manufacturing is not a niche

by chris bose on June 24, 2011

To produce useful results, a focused web crawler needs a good starting URL and a relevant similarity set. I began by thinking that advanced manufacturing was a good niche. But the crawler is telling me that it is no niche at all. The results have been very variable and poor quality and my interpretation of this is that the similarity set is really composed of unrelated URL’s.

The only niching was in my mind, the script does not see the connections my mind thinks it makes.

Advanced manufacturing niches do exist of course and I shall be exploring print electronics, micromoulding, 3D manufacturing, 3d scanning, and optoelectronics.
