We're very happy to launch a new feature to our Beta team today. Recommended Links will make adding useful and relevant links to your posts fast and fun. It's powered by our new partner Zemanta (read their press release about the integration) and is the first in a series of integrations that will help bloggers add great links and photos to create even richer posts. If you'd like access to Recommend links right now, please visit your Account page and check the box to join the Typepad Beta Team.
The Zemanta-generated recommendations will be pulled from your previously published posts, as well as relevant posts from other Typepad bloggers and articles across the internet. You'll be able to compose your posts per usual, then expand the Zemanta section below the editor to see the recommended links relevant to the post content.
When you click on the collapsed Recommended Links section, you'll be able to see generated links that are recommended to enhance your post. If you don't see anything right away, click the Update button.
If the keywords trigger multiple articles you'll be able to select from any one of them and the associated text in your post will become linked to the article you chose.
That's all there is to it! Zemanta is super quick, and a fantastic way to turn your everyday post into content that is rich with relevant information that benefits both your blog and its readers. We look forward to your feedback!
