WordPress.com AnswerLinks

A new feature has been added to WordPress.com, and it comes from a plugin made by Alex King. This isn’t something I am interested in, as if I want to give people information, I like to link to Wikipedia, rather than through Answers.com, but AnswerLinks are still an interesting idea.

AnswerLinks will find words in your post that might benefit from a definition and ask you if you’d like to turn them into links like Artie Shaw and Turmeric. Easy as that!
Answers.com gets their definition data from places like Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Britannica, and the American Heritage Dictionary. They are the default definition link that shows up whenever you do a Google search. There’s a little more information about this feature on Answers.com’s site.
