Zemanta - The Lowdown

Over the last few years, blogging has become a phenomenon. Anyone can create their own blog, whether they are for work or pleasure.

But with the popularity of the trend hitting great levels - hundreds of new blogs are created on a daily basis – it can be difficult to make your posts stand out from the crowd.

This is where Zemanta comes in. Created in Slovenia, the product allows even the most basic of blogs to flourish.

Once a post is created, simply allow Zemanta to scan its content. Within moments, it will suggest hundreds of images, articles and keywords relevant to the post, saving the user time and effort, while giving your blog that something extra. With all the hard work done for you, blogging has never been simpler.

With more than five million pictures and in excess of five million articles, Zemanta offers its users over ten million different ways of being creative, allowing you to develop your writing and enhance your readership at the same time.

Reliability is not an issue, as Zemanta only suggests content that is free of any copyright issues, allowing you to write at will.

The program is available as a free download from the homepage, and is it works on many blogging sites, including Blogger, Wordpress and LiveJournal. Zemanta is also supported by popular social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks to its time saving and user-friendliness, Zemanta has all the signs of becoming a highly popular online tool for journalists, even in its infancy.
