jiglu is automatic smart tags

jiglu has widgetized auto tags for your blog!


This appears to be a cool widget/service that spiders your blog and creates a tag list in the form of a widget. The tags link to the actual content on your pages giving your readers a new way to navigate your site. The tag links open in a window right on your site and deliver your readers to the content they desire. It’s easy to use so the reader wont get discouraged.

There are different categories for tags so you don’t have to deal with jumbled up mess like those pesky tag clouds (technorati). Jiglu attempts to organize the keywords on your site to make navigation much easier.


We’ll see how it works.
As of this post the spiders haven’t yet visited Widgets Lab so the widget I have placed in the sidebar didn’t have any jiglu discovered tags. It did manage to grab hold of some Technorati tags though for some instant widget usability. Cool!

This widget uses JavaScript. It is completely customizable to the appearance of your blog. Size and multiple color options are available as well as the ability to limit the actual content of the widget. There are also Word Press versions that integrate directly with your widget ready template. Also for Blogger, Movable Type and TypePad. (I just used the JavaScript for ease)

Check out the window that opens when the widget is used.
