Links in StockTickr to Search YOUR Site

August 25th, 2006

Today I added some links that you can use to drive users to YOUR site. With all the hubbub recently about content aggregation, I want to make it clear that StockTickr is NOT an aggregation play. If you follow the Interview Series I’m doing, you probably realize this already.

There are so many awesome blogs out there writing about stock market content. Just look at them in the Netvibes ecosystem that TraderMike put together. Brett Steenbarger put a great list together this morning, too. I think people should get credit for what they’re doing!

However, I don’t want to just say “StockTickr is not an aggregation play.” I’ll be adding some features over the next few days that demonstrate this.

Here’s the first one. If you’ve added the URL for your own site in your StockTickr Profile, everyone that views your watchlist will see an icon like the one below that links to a search of the current ticker symbol at YOUR site.

Here’s a perfect example. The great (and I do mean great!) Chairman MaoXian posted something on his site about ICT Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ICTG). When you look at his watchlist in StockTickr, an icon (Search Your Site) appears that links to a Google Search of http://www.maoxian.com for ICTG.
