Evernote Site Memory Inserts Your Brain Right Into Your Favourite Sites | 40Tech

It’s an established fact that we’re Evernote freaks here at 40Tech. Kosmo even joked that Evernote-love is a requirement to be a writer here. Well, be that as it may, the fact remains that we love the service — and that their latest offering loves blogs and Evernote users, both. In fact, the new Evernote Site Memory service is exactly what another one of our Tech Grown-Ups, Ellen, was searching for in a comment on this post.

Evernote Site Memory Buttons

Evernote Site Memory basically “embeds a mini-version of Evernote” right into a page or a post, making it extremely simple for readers to clip and save your content, directly from the post itself. This makes it really easy for readers to save a blog’s content to their Evernote, complete with tagging and notebook choice. It even allows sites to suggest tags, and to designate which areas of the page can be clipped, cutting out any ads, comments, or other things that you may not want in your notebooks. Clips render in Evernote much better this way and I think that this feature, alone, makes Evernote Site Memory far superior to the web clipper and browser plugins.

Evernote Site Memory in Action on Fuel Your Creativity

Some additional niceness for readers is the ability to use the Site Memory button to see what other posts you’ve clipped from the site you are on, essentially giving you a “site favourites” list for any site you’re on that uses the button. For sites, Evernote will be doing monthly features of sites that get a lot of use out of the Site Memory button, and is now offering a piece of the proverbial pie to websites via an affiliate program. If a user signs up to Evernote through your Site Memory button, and later adopts a paid subscription, Evernote will give your site the first $10 bucks that they make off of that new user. Not a bad gig, considering that Evernote has surpassed 4 million users — and received more than a million of those in the past month.

Evernote Site Memory Favourites Feature

The announcement for Evernote Site Memory appeared yesterday on the Evernote Blog, so we haven’t adopted it yet. There are some nice instruction sets for integration into WordPress and other platforms on Evernote’s site, so you can bet we will be playing with an implementation on our test site soon.

What do you think of Evernote Site Memory? Is it a feature you would like to see on 40Tech?
