A suggestion tool for bloggers

Zemanta is a European startup which was reviewed by TechCrunch here. They have a Firefox plugin which looks at the content you are writing and provides you with related images and links for that post. Incidentally I was reading this article on Semantic Web, and Zemanta is a practical use case of semantic algorithm.

Other than being a tool for bloggers, Zemanta could in the future help improve search algorithms. I assume they collect or can collect data on what links, tags and images a user adds to a certain post. Add to this the fact that a lot of content on the Web today is user-generated. So either Zemanta can work on a web search engine of its own or wait for Google to buy them out.
