The Washington Post is now serving up del.icio.us tags on all of its articles:
Washingtonpost.com is now working with Yahoo’€™s del.icio.us to offer tagging capabilities on all articles on the Washingtonpost.com site. The del.icio.us tagging addition is quite nice and an innovative way for the Post to attract more readers who use the del.icio.us tag, bookmark and search service. Likewise, the New York Times has a similar tagging partnership with Looksmart’€™s FURL bookmarking & tag solution.
Washingtonpost.com is serving up a hodgepodge of search, tagging and blogging companies with offerings like the Technorati (a Yahoo Search Marketing partner) powered ‘€œWho’€™s Blogging’€? which links to blogs that cover the post stories (a great way for blogs to attract traffic) and Google powered site search AND Google AdSense ads.
Their implementation of this on washingtonpost.com is similar to their implementation of Technorati’s link and cosmos data on the site. I expect more online newspaper versions to follow their lead in the days to come.
