Using Jiglu for intelligent tagging

Author: 1 Comment Share:

I started using a service a few weeks ago called Jiglu. Their slogan is “tags that think”. Basically the service scours All Climbing and then creates new links to content within the site. So if I write a post and don’t explicitly link to an external site, Jiglu may create a link to content within All Climbing.

So far I can see that numerous readers are clicking on the links and finding new content within the All Climbing blog. But that what I think (or hope) is happening. It occurred to me that these new links for internal content may actually be duping readers into clicking on a link that they otherwise would not, expecting to visit a new web site.

Does anyone have any opinions on this? Keep ’em or ditch ’em?

UPDATE: As if it knew I was talking about it, the links from Jiglu got worse over the past couple of days making posts almost unreadable with so many links. Jiglu has now been removed.

  1. Hmm… to be honest, looking at the above post, I think I may have answered my own question. It looks cluttered.
