Snap Shots makes it easier for site owners to empower their readers with enhanced hyperlinks that display previews, text summaries, videos, stock charts, MP3s, product info, and much, much more.
What are the benefits for site users?
Snap Shots give users control over what links to click on by making those links more useful, thus helping them navigate the Internet with greater speed and accuracy. For example, Snap Shots can:
- Display a preview of a site PreviewShot for any other URL and tell the users:
- If they have already read the linked content.
- If the link points to a trusted source.
- If the destination page requires registration.
- If the linked content is Not Safe For Work.
What are the benefits for site owners?Snap Shots allows site owners to make editorial decisions about what enhanced content to display and then to deploy it as easily as creating a hyperlink. This leads to greater visitor satisfaction and a satisfied visitor is more likely to come back.
- Snap Shots are effective when you link to articles from the same source - differences (i.e. headlines and pictures) are easier to perceive once within a repeating pattern (i.e page design).
- Snap Shots work well on blog rolls and text-heavy directory or results pages.
- Snap Shots can help fight link rot and reduce the number of trips to such pages.
