This plugin finds related posts and related images while you write your post. Pick related posts manually!
Without this plugin, i would be lost.
My blog tends to be heavy on the text because it is a listing of events, contests and submission calls for writers. I love being able to break up the page using photos from Zemanta, which also saves having to do lengthy searches online.
I also like being able to add hot links for readers who want more info on writers, books, places, and to include references to related posts when possible.
I really love Zemanta. It helps my words to flow when i'm typing a new post. Just seeing all the related articles and the images help my thoughts to keep active. Most of all I love once my article is posted and it looks attractive with all the related articles showing below it, and if I've included an image that I got through Zemanta. I really enjoy it, no complaints.
I have 6 websites, this plugin helps me ALOT! Many, many thanks :) Wish you all the best! Plugin in action
These guys know their stuff & the response is great. I had an unrelated plugin change and interfere with their product. Instead of saying "not my problem," they helped me fix it.
And, of course, it's a great product, which is why I was so intent on getting things working again. Thanks to Silvo and the crew for a great product and excellent service!
Zemanta is good but it has some quirks. For example, the Insert as Feature mode doesn't always work. The use of Getty Images has pushed out other non-Getty photos, and Getty Images can't be used as "feature" images on the front page. It's a mess

It's awesome being able to get free images for our blog posts automatically - just choose from those that show up as you type your posts. Zemanta is a HUGE time-saver.
Nice plugin overall.. looks good and doesn't seem to bog down speed like a lot of other "related story" plugins.
I'd give it 5 stars if it could exclude categories. I was surprised to see it didn't.. seems like a no-brainer and would not be too hard to code for it. Maybe someday...
This plugin is better than Nrelated, or Yet another related plugin, etc., as it's much easier to configure -- someone in here mentioned it was confusing. That's simply not the case. Upload it via your WP admin, activate it, adjust the settings .... You get to choose between 7 or 8 different types of layouts, and click save. And it's compatible w/ WP 3.5.1.
So that's it -- simple, and it works just how you want it to work -- and it's lightweight; doesn't hurt your page load times like some others do. I'd recommend this.
What can I say- great service, quick response and overall just pretty. When I say that I mean that the related articles that appear on the page look great- comes with images and that's cool.
But that's not all- finding related articles is easy and I know that helps with the SEO bit.
Also, if you've got a blog with good content, you can ask to be included in the related search articles feature.
Well done Zementa, give yourself a pat on the back,
