Starting today, bloggers using WordPress.com as their blogging platform will be offered an integrated tool to easily link words in their posts to definitions and explanations from Answers.com. The service will also be available as a plug-in (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/answerlinks/) for users of the more customizable WordPress.org service.
To use the new feature, WordPress.com bloggers will press the
AnswerLinks(TM) icon (http://www.answers.com/main/wordpress_howto.jsp) on
the WordPress editing toolbar to trigger an application that will suggest
terms for automatic linking.
I’m a little link whore short and stout, here is my post with little clout, when I need more traffic brought about, I seed my blog beyond any doubt.
UPDATE: Failed. I put five random words in a text box on a WordPress.com post and clicked the Answers.com icon after each word.
- susquehanna – maybe to localized
- sesquicentennial – maybe to specialized
- porn – maybe to dangerous
- michigan – hmmmmm
- answers.com – ???
UPDATE: It’s working. I may be wrong about it’s value. When I checked the above post it suggested I provide a link to define “plug-in” (which is good) but also “.org” which is pretty lame. When I upgrade to 2.3, I’ll probably add the plug-in for a while.
