There are two kinds, and more to come:
- The FAQ widget collects relevant questions from Yedda on your blog topic and displays them directly in your blog, so that you can always have fresh content for your readers.
- The Yedda Ask widget lets people ask directly from your blog questions related to your blog topics, which are posted to Yedda, with a link back to your blog.
The Ask widget is a clever idea, as it is getting Yedda out there into the blogosphere, besides the functionality of the widget it is a promotion in itself…plus questions asked from blogs will link back to the blog when browsing questions in Yedda (cross promotion I guess).
The only complaint I had about Yedda in the past is that you can’t direct your question at a specific person, eg. ask a specific person and cc: the rest of Yedda as usual…and of course Yedda will invite others to help with an answer (FAQQLY seems the opposite, it can direct a question to an individual or a group, but it can’t ask a question to the whole of FAQQLY).
Just wondering if people asking questions in the widget will think it is directed to the blog owner, perhaps the blog owner could be invited to answer the question by default…not sure if this happens.
