Wordnik, was originally an online dictionary which not only gave you an extensive list of meanings, but synonyms, antonyms, definitions, example, equivalents, hypernyms and the likes. You are welcome to check it out.
Moving forward, few days back this very Wordnik, launched a new tool for e-publishers that can be installed on their sites so that when one reaches the end of a page, Wordnik will recommend other pages that they might want to check out…kind of like stumble upon… without going to Stumble Upon.
There are other competitors in the market too, but Tony Tam, the chief exec says that “key differentiator is the technology underlying both the dictionary and the new Related Content product, which is focused on what words mean. The company already built technology to search the web and find relevant sentences illustrating the meaning of new words, and that same technology can help it deliver relevant content recommendations,”
So how does Wordnik actually work? It looks at the text, title, tags, categories and find other related material or similar one.
According to Paula of www.accessart.org.uk “Wordnik’s Related Content not only draws our reader to articles in line with their interests, but it has helped drive more page views! Absolutely a must have WordPress plugin.”
