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.
