Every professional blogger should use this tool when creating new content. It will help you find relevant content to link to or even images to include in your blog posts.

Zemanta is supposed to work with Gmail and Yahoo. I installed the extension but I don't see Zemanta when I composed in Gmail or in Yahoo. On the lighter side, it's working with my blog but would love it better if I can also use it in my email accounts.

Enabling Email

Email is not enabled by default. You can enable it via the Zemanta icon in the location bar, or via Preferences.

Spectacular- too bad it no longer works on TB Rated 4 out of 5 stars

EDITED REVIEW: This one WAS a true 5 star blockbuster until it stopped working for Thunderbird. For someone like me who does serious blogging and does extensive forum participation it is shocking to have that wealth of information handy in those situation! The quality and the ease of the information is truly sensational! I put this one in my "Apollo! Pack" collection but I would like to really sing it's praises when it works for TB again.

I've been using Zemanta since its earliest days and I swear by it! In fact, it's *so* effective that I sometimes have to disable it to avoid getting lost in all the stuff it brings up!

@ET66 (Comment made on August 21, 2009): Zemanta works best when you just go with the flow; let go of your planned approach and everything else and allow yourself to be inspired by Zemanta's suggestions. The end result is usually nowhere near what you'd set out to write, but you'll be pleasantly surprised by it, all the same!

I think that it's great so far, I've really only used it on blogger so far. The images and links come up quickly and are easy to add.

Hoping it improves Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I do like the add-on, but wasn't overly impressed with the first use of it. I was writing a blog post on education and technology and made one reference to the new Transformers 2 movie and Megan Fox and all of the photos and the articles dealt with Megan Fox or Transformers. Not a single one dealt with education or technology, despite the numerous references to both subjects. I'm hoping it becomes more intuitive as time goes on and learns by my blog posts.

I do share concerns regarding images and such.

Great service Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The privacy concerns I read in another post are overblown. Here is what their TOS says
"By submitting content to or generating metadata, content and content enhancements through the Zemanta service, you grant Zemanta ltd. a non-exclusive perpetual, sublicensable, royalty-free license to that metadata."

non-exclusive means you still own your content. A lot of services do things like this and its especially smart for Zemanta because that meta content will help them tune suggestions for users.

Works well but takes up too much screen real estate in wordpress. Application window is large and clunky with no option to turn off features to make it smaller

After I've been using Zemanta plugin for couple of months or so and I must say that this is THE tool for all bloggers and other content creators. Adding relevant links to blog posts, keywords, tags, pictures was never easier. And probably never will be.

Beside Adblock this is a must have.

Irrelevant RAM Hog Rated 3 out of 5 stars

At first, Zemanta seemed like an excellent idea, but I discovered that it requires a great amount of RAM memory to keep up with the pictures. Most of the pictures were irrelevant and the software did not seem to "learn" based on my choice of tags. If you are a beginner, I would say use Zemanta, you will gain a great amount of experience in selecting correct tags and pictures. Often the pictures that I did want to use had to be purchased, so I now use a variety of Creative Commons Tools based on Flickr images.

Wow it makes my blogging and emailing easy. I can now search images to use in my blog posts or email which are not copy righted or allows fair use. That relieves me from worrying about copy right infringement and also adds nice and free images to my posts and emails. It is a must add-on for blooggers and people who are found of in-line photos in emails
