Yes. Not to be too brief, but I would use the Data Export Service
You can monitor the VIEW event for content ... and run that to complement your business logic.

FYI: It's worth noting that my understanding is that you are building your own List Tile of Recommended Content. If you are trying to influence the out of the box tile information, then that is will not work. Just wanted to be clear.
Excellent, thank you so much for your help.
