AnswerTips now available to bloggers!!

Answertips_landing1_v2_12 We released AnswerTips to the public today!!  Its been live on CBS News and a few other sites (including this one) for several weeks, but this is the first time we are releasing it for public consumption by bloggers and other micro publishers.  The neat thing about this tool is that it provides remote access to the 4+ million topics covered by Answers.com by making every word on your page live.  Visitors can double-click any word to launch an Answer Bubble (or caption window…about 1/4 the size of an average browser window) that give definitions, explanations or general background info.  We also think it keeps users on the page longer since they have less need to go search for info on a new topic that they come across.  One of the challenges is educating the visitor that the tool exists and for this we are providing small icons that appear on the page.  Mine is on the top of the sidebar.  Enjoy it and please let me know what you think.
