Zemanta Update

At the end of June, I started using Zemanta while blogging. It has become an integral part of my blogging. When I first started using Zemanta, I thought it would be a little experiment to see how it would work. It has saved me a lot of time and effort.

I use Firefox as my web browser. I was having way too many problems using Internet Explorer, especially when I got a virus that kept opening windows on IE. The great thing about Firefox with Zemanta is that Zemanta integrates seamlessly with Firefox. It will work with other web browsers as well.

As I type my blog posts in the blogger editor, Zemanta suggests links, photos, keywords, and related articles that I can add to the post with a single click. There is almost always a link suggested that I would most likely not have thought to add to the post. The photos suggestions have been a big help as well. For instance, the cat on the computer keyboard for my "Kitty Porn?" post was suggested by Zemanta. I still search the web for relevant graphics, but frequently Zemanta provides all I need.

In addition to the photo and link suggestions, Zemanta provides relevant tags to the article. These tags are SEO to help your posts in searches. Zemanta also provides links to related articles that you can review and link to in your post.

Zemanta works with all major blogging platforms and several email programs. It can also be used with other browsers besides Firefox. Give it a shot and see how you like it.
