Today Yahoo announced Yahoo shortcuts for wordpress blogs. And many good WordPress soldiers are blogging about it today.. Amazing many commercial things are made every day for wordpress… yet you dont see the WordPress staff bloggers (that are embeded in your wordpress software) writing about them… hrmm must just be a coincidence…
(or you can just look at your word press dashboard to see this spammed to hell)
Any chance we could get full disclosure on the financial agreements since you guys are so mighty on being the clean bloggers and all that…
Is it me or is it weird that just not so long ago wordpress was taking this huge stand against text links and now they are in full support of a company that does text links AND removes your editorial control from them (to some degree). Well I guess they were not getting a cut of that money.
But lets take a look at what it does…. It underlines your links that could goto products (like kontera or intellitxt) then you can add a widgetbox of shopping comparison. (like shoppingads or widgetbucks).
Wow thats pretty cool… So what do you get for making Yahoo! and wordpress money? A FREE T-SHIRT! WOOT!!!!!
Good for Yahoo! for finally jumping in and making a run at manipulating the open source industry. Just when you thought Google had the lock on it.
