Unless you are one of the most talked about bloggers online, this widget might not mean much to you. Techorati has released a widget that will allow you to display the number of links to each on of your posts in more or less real-time.
Imagine if you could display the number of links to each of your posts in real-time – updated live for all your visitors. That’s what you get with the Technorati Link Count Widget. It’s a simple piece of code that lets you make your site or blog more dynamic.
Technorati tracks when other bloggers link to your blog and this widget makes it possible for you to display the number of links on every blog post. We call them “reactions” to encourage readers to follow the conversation. To add the widget, copy and paste the code below into your blog’s template.
With trackbacks and comments already prevalent for bloggers, I don’t know how useful a widget such as Technorati’s Link Count Widget can be. Do I really need to see that a story I have posted has been linked to or mentioned one or two times on Technorati?
