JS-Kit Launches the Navigator Widget; Aims To Increase Traffic And Simplify Management
On Thursday morning JS-Kit will be launching their Navigator widget. Navigator takes their current widget to a whole new level. It combines multiple panels inside one widget that should help to drive site visitors further within a blog or Web site. There are multiple design options so you should be able to find one that fits your site/blog design.
I am a big believer in getting people from the home page deep into a site or blog. The Navigator helps do this by exposing content that could be years old but is either the most popular or the most active. And then you can select content for what JS-Kit calls "editor’s picks" to showcase your best works.
The Navigator widget will include the following options:
- Top – gives users access to the most popular objects (by weighted average user ratings)
- Hot –links users to the most active objects (by number of actions/time)
- Editor’s Picks – gives publishers a tool for building custom views in the form of administrator-specified list of internal or external links
- “Grab It” – viralizes a site’s content and drives both new and return visits by allowing site visitors to embed a site’s Navigator elsewhere on the web
JS-Kit added a viral option as well that lets your visitors take the Navigator from any JS-Kit powered site for use on your own site, blog, etc. I’ve played with Navigator and it works well. And I’ve appreciated the quick responses from their executive and support teams.
