Zemanta is getting better

In case you still haven’t jumped to the Zemanta bandwagon, this might make you reconsider: They just got an upgrade, including many cool new features.

  • My Friends & Feeds– ability to include your friends and custom feeds to your Zemanta account
  • My Flickr – we will now also find pictures in your Flickr account
  • Filter – you can filter recommendations to more fine grain the results to your content
  • Z-Blog, Sep 2008

The most interesting parts is the Feeds option which allows you to import your favorite feeds into zemanta and have it find posts available there, that are relevant to your content. By using the friends function and simply adding you twitter contacts (yet another reason why you should join the twitter atheists) you can simply select the ones you want to follow. Plus, mybloglog became more useful now πŸ˜€

With the huge amount of atheist blogs, this is certainly going to come in handly in facilitating interlinking to others in the Atheosphere (whereas before you just had to have something available). Now I can easily start writing something about ethics, and get some stuff from, say, the Atheist Ethicist to add.

The other one I like is that you can now filter you image results. This was sorely needed as you very often have an idea on what to put as a image but zemanta does not give you the option. This has finally become better than photodropper now since it is both faster, and you get previews and you get to see more sources than simply flickr. Plus, you can tell it to only grab your own stuff if you have a flickr account πŸ˜‰

Cool week for bloggers πŸ˜€

  1. Very cool. I have been using it but was not aware of the new features. Time to check them out.

  2. I don't know how the layout is in blogger but I noticed it from a notification displayed on the sidebar from Zemanta

  3. I jumped on the zemanta bandwagon a couple of days ago, thanks to your suggestion DB0.
    Finding it pretty good, though I struck a problem with using reblog, posted a question on their support forum and got a reply within the day.
    That's good service.

    I'm thinking zemanta could become huge in the blogging world.

  4. update on their service. got another email today (by a different employee) asking if the first reply answer worked.
    It's good to see service like this, it gives you confidence that they are interested in looking after the users.
