AnswerLinks launches on Wordpress.com blogs
Two weeks ago, a project I began exploring in late 2006 launched. A partnership between Answers.com and Wordpress, AnswerLinks is a tool that scans an article's content prior to publishing and suggests words, terms and people, that may require additional detail, to link back to Answers.com definitions, explanations, bios, etc. It's the first 3d party tool integrated into the Wordpress publishing interface, which makes it somewhat innovative and exciting. It's also the first distributed application of Answers.com auto-linking technology, an area that we believed has significant growth potential. From what I hear, response from Wordpress bloggers has been positive so far and the partnership format has been noticed by others. AnswerLinks is also available as a plug-in for Wordpress.org bloggers.
