Smartbar Basics for Users
Someone not familiar with all of the Linkury’s Smartbar’s features might mistakenly group the Smartbar in the same category of old fashioned, standard tool bars. After all, the Smartbar, like standard toolbars, offers a graphic interface with shortcuts and tools. But the Smartbar also offers many features that can’t be found anywhere else. First of all, the Smartbar’s installation and update processes are elegant and seamless – they do not require user interaction. Secondly, the Linkury Smartbar is flexible and completely customizable. For users, they can users can pick which search engines they want to use and view search results simultaneously for easy comparison; they can choose the widgets that they want, and they can even decide where the Smartbar appears on the screen. Thirdly, the Smartbar’s simultaneous sharing feature, which allows users to interact with content across all their social networks with a single click, makes it hard to beat.
Smartbar Advantages for Publishers

PC, mobile, laptop, android… and, of course, the Smartbar works in perfect harmony with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, FireFox, and other Internet browsers.

Since the Smartbar is a Microsoft Azure cloud based solution, the platform is both scalable and reliable – it can take the load of an astounding number of users without crashing. Astute publishers will start using Smartbar while their product is still on the drawing board, and keep on using it to promote the product once it’s ready. Not to worry if your product is already out there –Linkury provides full consulting and support services that ensure a headache free, successful integration and implementation process.
Branding with ease
What’s more, publishers can easily update content in order to stay true to their business plan – or in order to create and follow trends. As a result, publishers using the Smartbar keep their users interested longer, granting them more opportunities for monetizing their content and generating healthy revenue streams. They can also stay in touch with their users via real time notifications. Notifications, which can include a publisher’s logo or any other image, also include an invisible link for direct, one click communication with users.
In light of the fact that the Linkury Smartbar is all about revolutionizing the way users and publishers think of and use information, it makes sense that the platform delivers brilliant ways for publishers to gather and use information about their users. Publishers use reports about usage trends and engagement to see if users are really connecting with their offerings, and to get a clear view of which widgets and applications are hot and which are not. These real time reports are crucial for any publisher that wants to keep on top of the latest trends. Analytic reports generate charts, graphs and tables that are easy to read, and which present relevant statistics about any particular user group.
