Zemanta- The easy Way to Share Related Content

Day 2 6: #AtoZchallenge

Yeah, we made it. Today is the last post of the #AtoZchallenge. It has been a wonderful experience. For the letter – Z– I want to share Zemanta with you.

Zemanta is a browser extension that once installed provides recommended links and photos as related content (posts). It will load automatically as you write, allowing you to click on the specific content you wish to share. Proper credit for the articles and photos are provided by default. Below is an example of a post on Blogging Tips and the related content pulled up by Zemanta.

Zemanta 2

The content will show at the bottom of your post in either title  format:

Related

 

 

 

or thumbnail format based on your preferences in the settings.

This extension saves time and gives increases your authority, promotes, links to other writer’s content and increases networking.

  1. This is another piece of valuable information that I did not know about. Zermanta is something I can use and I will download the extension for Safari.
    It has been a wonderful Challenge. You made it and I was happy to walk along with you.
    All the best for the future.

    Visiting from the A to Z Blog Challenge.

    Shalom,

    • Marjorie, I have enjoyed so much reading your blog. Zemanta can be very useful in pointing your readers to other posts from your own achieve or across the net. Let me know what you think if you decide to give it a try. You’ve taught me a whole new vocabulary. Although, I’ll have to keep referring back because my brain will never remember them all. Congratulations for completing the challenge. It has been my pleasure to meet you and I hope you will continue to visit. BTW, I love, love your tagline and have added it to my list of favorite quotes.

  2. I’ve never heard of this. You’ve truly taught me so much this month, I can’t even begin to thank you. I feel like I’ve taken a month long, paid for e-course or on-line workshop. I’m honored to have met you and look forward to getting to know you better. I’m looking forward to the month of May, a calmer month. I need time to unwind, but I intend to re-read most of your blog post. I’ve bookmarked all of them. You made a new friend and have a new fan. Thanks for sharing so much of your knowledge and expertise and doing so in such an easy to understand way. If they give out blog awards for the best A to Z blogs I will be voting for you.

    • Melissa, you are too kind. Thank you for such lovely comments. I feel the same way about your blog. I was thrilled to find your site. As a retired RN, I have always been interested in the psychology of crimes and what humans are capable of doing. Much of my fiction relates to crimes and I’ve thought about trying my hand at a true crime book. I had a nurse who worked for me who killed her husband. She’s doing life. I have a short story collection I’m working on and would love to get your feedback. Thank you for making my first time doing this challenge so pleasant. I look forward to a long association with you and your blog.

  4. Hi Sheila, thank you for generously sharing an amazing amount of material during April. I bet there was lots there that people didn’t know of – I’ve certainly been informed and educated! Congrats on reaching the end of the challenge, and lots of luck with your future writing. Best wishes, Kim
