Criteo’s AutoRoll: What Readers are Reading

with 4 comments

Criteo Auto RollI was invited to try Criteo’s AutoRoll today which is still in beta. Normally I try to keep my site clear of a lot of widgets but this one was pretty compelling so I hopped into the system and put one together. The basic gist of the AutoRoll is that it will display links to the blogs my readers (i.e. you) read most so that all of you can see what the rest of your fellow readers are reading.

It reminded me a lot of MyBlogLog but the fact that it suggests other content that may be interesting to all of you made it more worth while to me. You can now find Criteo’s AutoRoll widget under the “VC Deals” section on the far right side bar. I am calling it the “Reader Roll.” As always, please let me know if this addition to the site is useful and feel free to chime in via the comments on what you think of the AutoRoll concept.

  1. Have you checked out the “Blog Window” widget. I called it the popular posts widget(when I wrote about it) because that is what it does. It displays your most popular posts. (starting the day you install it)
    here is the link to the site

  2. I hadn’t seen that widget actually but I like the concept. Maybe I can figure out how to attain that same functionality on my own so it will better mesh with the site design.

  4. I’m glad that you’ve found AutoRoll to be compelling! With so much content out there, recommendations are essential to help your audience find other compelling content in the vein of what you provide on your blog, and so far, people have responded very favorably to the concept.

    We’re always looking for ways to improve, so please let us know how AutoRoll works for you, and we’d love to hear from you if you have any suggestions.
