ShrinkTheWeb.com Partners with Technorati to Provide Website Previews
Technorati.com (http://www.technorati.com), named the 5th largest social media property by comScore, has chosen to partner with ShrinkTheWeb (http://www.shrinktheweb.com) for the launch of their new website design. ShrinkTheWeb's powerful platform allows large media sites, like Technorati, to enhance their user experience by displaying previews of the sites they feature. This type of visual cue encourages visitor interaction by creating a sense of trust and familiarity with the websites being referenced. Technorati was one of the early adopters of website screenshot technology, first integrating Alexa's Site Thumbnail service early on and then moving to Snap.com's SnapShots in July of 2007.
Since using previews proved beneficial, Technorati began a search for a more robust service that could provide guaranteed response times at high volumes. ShrinkTheWeb's reputation in the website preview niche speaks for itself as the company has been gaining significant popularity among webmasters and application developers. With this most recent partnership, Technorati also recognizes ShrinkTheWeb's PagePix service as a valuable component for their audience's enjoyment.
Tweet.Me.It (http://tweet.me.it), an innovative URL shortener service catering to Twitter users, recently finalized a partnership with ShrinkTheWeb as well. Tweet.Me.It has implemented website previews in their analytics section where their users get at-a-glance reporting of daily/weekly click-through rates and other useful statistics. The service is free and there are many new features currently in development, according to Ashley Ford, Tweet.Me.It CEO.
As more and more web developers
transition from static text links to dynamically updated website previews,
what was once just an accessory is now becoming a staple. While website
preview technology is becoming more prevalent, ShrinkTheWeb is interested
in developing strategic partnerships that will facilitate the growth and
awareness of this industry.
