Q: What do I have to do to join the Wikinvest Wire?
A: You must be invited to join. If you haven't already been invited, you may request an invitation. Once you're invited to join the Wikinvest Wire, you just download and install the plugin.
Q: How much of my content will you syndicate on other sites?
A: Unlike other blogger networks such as Seeking Alpha, you don't have to syndicate your entire post to show up in the Wikinvest Wire. We'll syndicate the titles of your posts and sometimes the first few lines, but readers will click through to your site to read the rest.
Q: How do you determine which posts are related?
A: We developed an algorithm that's customized for finance and investing blogs. The algorithm uses natural language parsing that makes use of the link structure on Wikinvest.com to identify topics in your posts. The algorithm is smart enough to know that "Google", "GOOG", "AdWords", "YouTube", and "Android" (when used in context) are all references to Google Inc.
Q: How do you ensure quality?
A: We only allow high-quality investing blogs to join the Wikinvest Wire. Because every member of the Wikinvest Wire is an investing blog, related links are always relevant and useful to your readers. And, we let readers tell us which blog posts are most helpful by tracking click through rates and rewarding blog posts that your readers want to read.
Q: Which blog platforms is the Wikinvest Wire plugin compatible with?
A: The Wikinvest Wire plugin is compatible with Blogger/Blogspot, Typepad, and all current versions of Wordpress (v2.3 and later) and Movable Type (v4.1 and later), and Joomla.
Q: What if I don't use one of the specified blogging platforms? Can I still use the widget?
A: Contact us with your blog's URL, and a Wikinvest administrator will get back to you with instructions for the easiest way to install the plugin on your blog.
Q: Sometimes my blog posts don't have any Wikinvest Wire related content. What happened?
A: If for some reason we're unable to match a post to any other posts, the Wikinvest Wire won't show up on that particular post.
Q: Will I be able to leave the Wikinvest Wire?
A: You can leave the Wikinvest Wire at any time by uninstalling the plugin.
Q: I need help - who can I contact with questions about joining the network or installing the plugin?
A: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll usually respond within an hour during business hours.
