Wordpress WidgetAn automatic Tag Cloud for your Wordpress.com blog? Easy.
Wordpress.com does not support third-party flash widgets like ours (see left), but it will allow you to add a text box, with a little piece of code. (see how here) If you want super-quick automatic tags based on the content of your page, just add a text widget to your Wordpress.com blog, and add the following code:
<a href="http://linkky.com/wp"><img src="http://tinyurl.com/quickwidget"></a>That will read your page, and put you a nice visual tag cloud together. The first time will take a short while, as it has to go and read your page. Then it caches the image for about an hour, when it will update on the page load. There is an example at MyMission2's blog.
Something more special?Why not have a widget image that is more in keeping with your page? You can customise the image below. If you want to, you can tag different pages or Twitter stream, and have them appear on your blog.We have an example below that uses the BBC News site and Stephen Fry's Twitter stream all mashed up. Play around with the look and feel, and when you are happy, click "Get a TinyUrl for your blog". Make sure to click "Clear All" if you want a widget image that will tag your own blog. Don't worry, there is a warning screen in case you forget.
What is thisEssentially, we are trying to do two things. The first is to extract important themes from all of the web pages or Twitter feeds specified. Some may be common to all, and some may be unique.
Then we present this back in a very visual form. We have different versions of the product, and the technology has now been incorporated into the JumpTo product set. This is the most basic form, just a static image.
