One of my favorite blogging, social networking and website enhancement tools is also FREE!
Here’s what they offer you, at no cost:
“One line of code can triple the time readers spend on your site. Interested?
“Apture’s Contextual Search keeps users engaged with your content by giving them the tools to search and share without even leaving your page. Give your readers the power to search the web for rich content from Google, Wikipedia, Amazon, Flickr, YouTube and others all through your site.”
Here’s what happens: you install a bit of custom generated code you get from Apture, after you give them your basic blog information.
After that, when someone visits your site and scrolls down, a slender toolbar appears and invites them to share what they see on your blog using email, Twitter and/or Facebook.
In other words, the Apture toolbar immediately connects your blog to the most important social networking tools on the web today. This means visitors can easily share your blog more easily to their friends and followers.
And that means more traffic and links for your blog.
Visitors can also use the built in search field to find information in your blog’s archives. This easy to use search feature keeps visitors engaged on your blog longer.
Here’s a recent report I received from Apture, telling me the different installing the toolbar has made to one of my blogs:
