There are a few plugins and services out there for blogs that automatically create links to content on the web. Some of these tools, such as Chitika are simply ways to monetize content and traffic by showing pop-up ads related to contextual text and others, such as Snap show popups when readers hover over certain types of linked content.

Personally, while I like the idea of adding content that makes posts richer, I find both of these solutions annoying and self-serving — the added content in really just advertising that benefits the blogger and not the reader. Now, I have nothing against the bloggers out there making a living, but the main content area is a bit sacred and annoying popups don't do much to keep it that way.

I don't have Apture on my blog at the moment, but I have tested this feature in the past.

What do you think about Zemanta application with images and related post?
