Yadda, Yadda, Yadda Put a forum on your site with AOL’s Yedda

Posted by tom klein June 16, 2008

As we discussed in Talk amongst yourselves, there are a number of web-based tools to help you create a dialog with your customers or readers. However, some companies (and bloggers) would rather these conversations take place on home turf. And who can blame them?

Thanks to Yedda’s suite of blogger widgets, you can turn your website or blog into an open forum. Like Yahoo Answers, Yedda leverages the wisdom of crowds in a simple Q&A platform. The twist here is that Yedda understands the most important questions and answers come from your own audience.

The Profile Widget streams all your personal Yedda Q&A’s on your site, letting you share your knowledge directly with your readers, while the FAQ Widget posts pre-selected frequently asked questions and answers from the Yedda community. With the Ask A Question Widget, your readers can ask and answer questions on any topic. Yedda publishes the questions on Yedda.com and rewards you with a link back to your site.

So whether you are looking to add dynamic content to your site or looking for a free tool to help increase your site traffic, Yedda can be a good answer.

Yedda uses a proprietary semantic matching technology to match questions to other questions and topics, thus letting users "tag" themselves as experts in a particular topic and get notifications (by rss feed or email) when relevant questions are posted.

Down, but not out, AOL knows a good thing when they see it. They snatched up this Israeli social start-up last year and plan to integrate it into their own AOL question-focused service.
