JS-Kit Launches Enterprise-Ready Comments Service
BURLINGAME, CA October 5 — JS-Kit (www.js-kit.com), a leading provider of community-enabling web services, today released a powerful new version of its popular Comments service (www.js-kit.com), which makes sites instantly more dynamic and interactive. New administrative tools and user features add depth and power to JS-Kit’s original service; now part of a fully integrated suite that includes Ratings, “Top Rated”, Reviews and Polls, each of which can be deployed in just minutes.
Developed with direct input from JS-Kit’s largest customers, the new Comments service gives site administrators the tools they need to manage larger, more complex commenting applications as well as crucial data access and SEO functionality.
- Full pre- and post-moderation tools lets publishers approve incoming comments before posting and easily control disruptive or offensive behavior.
- RSS data feeds allow anytime access to comment data for use in customer analysis, offsite data backup or other CRM applications.
- This same RSS feed can also be used to allow search engines to index comments and assign relevance to the appropriate pages on the customer’s site, thus overcoming the two most common concerns about a hosted solution: data access and search engine optimization (SEO).
- Service upgrades also strengthen the user experience, by letting users (and administrators) sort comments based on name, date and “karma”, which is an aggregate measure of a particular comment’s popularity based on users’ up/down votes.
“Early feedback on our new Comments service has been overwhelmingly positive,” said JS-Kit CEO, Khris Loux. “Our first Comments service was perfect for smaller sites, such as most blogs, but we’re now seeing strong adoption by much larger organizations. With their most pressing needs now met, larger sites are quickly realizing the compelling technical and business benefits of outsourcing. We have a slew of similar upgrades in the works for our other services as well.” JS-Kit currently serves over 8000 publishers, large and small, worldwide.
JS-Kit provides ultra-lightweight, feature-specific content and community services for any site via a hosted platform. The company’s services offer unparalleled ease of implementation and a compelling combination of power and affordability. JS-Kit empowers publishers by delivering must-have features, promoting rich interactivity and building community and customer knowledge.
