To initiate tags, simply declare a Site Tag like "Politics" or "Education". Then, whenever adding or editing information within your Linear system, you'll have check boxes for your active Site Tags - just click to choose the applicable tags. Unless otherwise directed, the Linear system will incorporate the applied site tags into the Meta words for the page.

Highlighting: Within editorial and blogs, you can direct your Linear system to "activate" site tags within the body copy. Either the first or all instances of the site tag will become direct links to related site content.

On your Web site, tagged items will include inset links to related content sharing the same Tag. Extensive controls allow you to determine the appearance and application of Tags.

Can't decide which Site Tag applies? No problem, any item within your Linear system can handle up to 20 Site Tags. The system will blend the tagged content on the Web site.

Currently, the Linear system can apply Site Tags to the following content:Keywords allow you to maintain and apply special words which become links either on or off your site. Keywords can be made to look identical to Site Tag links - or have a slightly different appearance. The keyword here is "Albert Einstein" and Politics is a site tag.

Keywords generally link to related content on the internet. Each keyword can be designated to open in a new window, or a window with a return bar for your site, or off-site completely or internal to your site. For example, the keyword "Drudge" will open the The Drudge Report in a new window with a return bar while "Calendar Listings" will link to the Calendar of this web site.

The keyword interface includes an automated "wiki" feature which will automatically construct the appropriate link to Wikipedia for the word. "Albert Einstein" uses the wiki feature.

Keyword implementation is available in both the editorial system and the blogs. Keywords are developed and applied on the fly while working with your content.

Quotes
times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
