Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Video Preview API. The API was released by the HeyWatch company, cloud video encoding leader, to allow users the ability to create image previews from a video. These screen shots act as a video story board, providing viewers with the ability to see with more detail what the contents of a video are. To learn more about the Video Preview API visit the HeyWatch site as well as the Video Preview API blog post.
When it comes to SEO (search engine optimisation), the best way to get people to visit a website is to provide great content. Keywords, linking and other tricks aside, content is still king. For some website owners, generating regular written content is just not their thing, and in those cases, professional article writing services may be an option. Textbroker is an article writing service that makes use of its large database of knowledgable writers to create content specific to clients' needs. Textbroker has also released the Textbroker's API that makes it possible for third party applications to access data and manage the whole ordering process.
