Outbrain: Content Rating and Blog Post Recommendation Widget

November 24th, 2008


Outbrain is a Widget Service focused on Rating any kind of written web content and providing recommended  Blog post based on the content rating. The Rating part is very alike to JS-KIT rating widgets and the Recommendation part could be seen as Zemanta like with a Entrecard twist

The Widget is very simple and clean since it is meant to blend with the blog independently of its look. Outbrain main attractive is that it works with the top blog platforms and that if used it will give your blog traffic since it will give your blog post as recommendations when appropriate. all without even adding a Outbrain logo. something quite bold i don`t really see often but understandable since they garnering  information out of your blog to make the service itself work. still a notable gesture..

This is a good and recommended Widget for Small Blogs that want some of the work of Blogging done for them. since this widget will give them some traffics and some instant recommendations without they doing nothing.  the widget now also interact with Disqus is you got Disqus installed so you can bring more attention to the widget and the widget can bring more attention to your comments link.

Outbrain Get FREE virtual gifts

November 18th, 2008 is a new widget that allows the user to receive “Virtual” gifts from any visitor to their page.

How it works:
Anyone that wishes to leave you a gift can simply choose from the thousands (millions?) of items in the catalog.

The site provides an easy to use Amazon search that gives you category and keyword options, helping to narrow down to that perfect gift. And best of all, you don’t have to leave MyVGift to search. It’s all done right on-site.

Once you find the gift you want to give, add it via the little icon on the far right and then customize it with a little note and your name (optional for Anonymous giving)

Each gift links to its respective page…in case you want to actually buy one.

The widget install:
Grabbing this widget and adding it to your blog or page is as simple as 1-2-3.
1. pick your style (Vertical or Horizontal)
2. pick your color (16 million colors I believe. With Hex option)
3. Either copy the code (to paste) or enter your login info for over 20 different social pages and blog platforms.

“The only virtual gift widget on the web that works on multiple social platforms:
Friendster, Facebook, Orkut, Bebo, Tagged, Blogger, Hi5, LiveSpaces, Piczo, Freewebs, LiveJournal, BlackPlanet, MyYearbook, WordPress, Vox, TypePad, Xanza, Multiply, iGoogle, NetVibes, Pageflakes, MiGente, and others.”

Try it:
I’ve added the MyVGift widget to the sidebar. Feel free to give a “Virtual” gift to widgets lab. You’ll find it very easy to use. Heck…give two gifts! Christmas time is just around the corner.
