The new SmartLinks are automatically inserted when there’s a link to the stock’s page on Yahoo of Google Finance, or books on Amazon, music on Last.fm, and many other sites. You can see the benefit of SmartLinks when you click on the little blue icon at the end of this link: Rick’s Cabaret. The SmartLink shows recent trading information and provides links to do further research about the specific stock.
You can access analyst reviews for Ricks, view the companies SEC filings, read popular stock bloggers commentary on the stock by clicking SmartSearch, see historical charts for the stock, and more. All of this is automatically and instantly presented in the SmartLink pane.
No live shot’s from RICK’s yet so maybe a partnership with a streaming video company is due :) ?
And when you open the Smartlink there’s a lot of relevant information pulled into the pane:
Installation is easy, I’m using the wordpress plug-in and there’s one-click installation for Blogger and Typepad or a single line of code for other blogs and templates. You can install SmartLinks here. And preview SmartLinks on your blog using the SmartLink preview that’s on their homepage.
Ping me if you want to try it out and are having any troubles. Let me know also if you are using it and what you think.
Disclosure- Biltmore Ventures (I am a partner) is an investor in Adaptive Blue.
