    We’ve been reading all the great feedback through our User Voice page, and one enhancement people wanted was for us to generate a unique spintax {|} variation for every distinct social media submission, and not just for each ‘share’.

    We took this to heart and got it done.

    Here’s an example…

    Bookmark Title = SocialAdr is {awesome|great|kickass|super duper|swell}


    When a Free user sees this bookmark, decides they like it, and clicks a button to submit it to their social accounts, our processing engine would generate a spintax variation of the Title, and use that for all the social accounts for that user.

    Delicious = SocialAdr is awesome

    StumbleUpon = SocialAdr is awesome

    Pinterest = SocialAdr is awesome

    Diigo = SocialAdr is awesome

    …and so on…


    Now our processing engine generates a spintax variation of the Title for each of the social accounts for that user.

    Delicious = SocialAdr is awesome

    StumbleUpon = SocialAdr is kickass

    Pinterest = SocialAdr is super duper

    Diigo = SocialAdr is swell

    …and so on…

    Hopefully that makes sense :)

    We weren’t super concerned with the old logic, because search engines don’t discover all the links immediately anyways, it can often take weeks for them to discover some of the links.  And if your bookmarks are receiving submissions each day, and for every user who shares your bookmarks a spintax variation is generated, over time there should be a lot of variety.

    But…this new logic is definitely better, there’s no doubt about that.  It’s yet another step forward in reducing a footprint.

  • Increase your Max Submissions per Bookmark

    We’ve had a lot of requests for this enhancement (v2.57), so we’re pretty happy that we got it rolled out.

    In the past, each account type (Free, Lazy Link Builder, etc.) had a “max shares” limit associated with it.  The better the account, the higher the limit.  And each “share” can result in up to 20 or so “submissions”.  Once the share limit was reached, the users bookmarks were archived and could no longer be submitted to the social media sites.  The only way you could un-archive them was to upgrade your account.

    Here’s how this all works now:

    • We’ve removed all “max shares” references and now we use “max submissions”.  The main reason for this is that each share results in a variable number of submissions, depending on numerous factors.  So it’s not really fair that Bookmark A might be archived after being submitted 1000 times and Bookmark B might make it to 1300.
    • You can now increase your “max shares” limit regardless of which account type you have. So if you only have a few bookmarks and therefore only require a ‘Lazy Free’ account, but want your bookmarks to continue to get submitted to the social sites, forever, you can boost your limit to “doubled” or “unlimited”.

    Just go to the Max Submission Limits page to increase your limit.
