Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 17, 2008
Before today blog owners couldn't do much about the dull search results page on their blog. When installing site search on their websites or blogs, site owners are left with the typical, bland white background with blue or black text search results they've come to settle for from the "premier" site search solutions.
Now, thanks to Viewzi's new Viewzi For Publishers blog site search plugin, that old boring search results page will no longer be as bland as it has been in the past. Moreover, video blogs and photo blogs can have search results pages that finally do justice to their rich-media based site when they power their website search with Viewzi For Publishers.
What is Viewzi For Publishers?
Viewzi for Publishers (VFP) is a plugin that adds a Viewzi powered search results 'page' to a blog or site but does not replace the original search functionality of the blog engine.
The default view is the Blog View. This blog view displays the results of a search within the blog posts and comments. The results can be displayed as posts and comments or can be split into only blog posts or only comments. The date and time of the post or comment is displayed in the results to help the searcher with easily identifiable visual cues.
Blog Photo View:
The second view, the Blog Photo View, displays thumbnails of Flickr, SmugMug or Picassa photos related to the users search. Support for Photobucket and MySpace is being considered for a future version of VFP.
Blog Video View:
The Blog Video View displays screens shots of blog/search-related videos from the blog owner's YouTube or Viddler account. Joost is suported in this view as well in the event that the blogger or site owner would prefer Joost content to be shown in the Blog Video View. Support for Vimeo, MySpace Video and Google Video is in the planning stages.
Blog Timeline View:
Finally, the brand new Blog Timeline View displays search results from blog posts and comments in a chronologically ordered manner. By rolling over the item on the timeline, the user can get a quick snippet of text from the post or comment in question. Additionally the number of reader comments per blog post are visually represented by a semi-transparent circle located next to each result in the timeline.
Viewzi for Publishers is available today for free as a plugin for Habari and Wordpress. Moveable Type and Drupal plugins are being developed now with Blogger, TextPattern and tumblr plugins to follow.
Seeing is believing. Go ahead and try Viewzi For Publishers. Search for something on one of these sites for a test drive:
