    Wanted to test it against sniply. Signed up for a free trial. Anything I wanted to test was stopped by a window saying I had to upgrade to do that. Then wanted to cancel the account so not to be bothered with mails the next weeks, but nowhere to cancel. The settings option was inactive, and "my account" only allwoed me to upgrade to the paid version. Waste of time!!!

Hello everyone, Many of us curate and aggregate content that we share on our social media accounts. When we share content from other authors and other websites, what are we getting in return? Our social media followers click on the link and read through the content that we shared. They close the article, and carry on with their lifes. Sure – we provided value to our social media connections, but what else are we really accomplishing? We’re not providing anything else to our readers, and we’re (more importantly) not giving ourselves an opportunity to generate a conversion. It’s a common practice for successful social media users to aggregate and share great content that isn’t there own. Everyone does it, and it’s a necessary aspect of social media. It shows that you’re not self centered and enjoy reading and sharing relevant industry articles. What if there was a way for us to place our call-to-action right on another website? That sounds like something that could be extremely valuable, right? Linkgage does just this. Linkgage is URL shortener with a twist – it gives you the ability to add your own call to action right on the page.

This is a fantastic idea - but how does it handle websites that break out of frames or adhere to mozilla observatory?
Stanley OjadovwaMaker@stanwarri · Team Lead, Codulab
@scotty_bowler We have a script that captures websites with frame bursting scripts. It prompts the user to decide whether to leave the website or not. The only caveat is that Mozilla would want a user interaction on the page before that script will work.

Nice. Are your plans based on clicks to the CTA or clicks to the article? (hopefully not the later)
Stanley OjadovwaMaker@stanwarri · Team Lead, Codulab
@ravsydney The plans are based on the number of clicks on the CTA.

Is this implanted via frames or reverse proxy? A lot of sites disabled framing when sniply was introduced, in addition to clickjacking concerns. Rev proxy violates many TOS. Overall these tools always seem like a straightforward and simple idea, but they often fall into grey/black territory.
Stanley OjadovwaMaker@stanwarri · Team Lead, Codulab
@saggesenicholas This was implemented using iFrame technology. We're aware of sites disabling framing but that is just 1% of out of the millions of websites. Also we have a script for bursting iframe on some websites.

@stanwarri even if you are able to do this...you really should be providing a rel canonical for site owners so you aren't hurting them in the SEO category.

@saggesenicholas Thank you for your suggestions. We're working on that already
