The main purpose is to make linking easier and automatic. It’s quite difficult and time consuming to insert say 20-30 links into each post especially when a word Bing should point to Bing, right? Cross-Linker makes linking easy by hyperlinking each word as many times as defined.
Say that you’ve configured the Cross-Linker to point to Bing via words bing, bing search engine, bing search maximally 3 times per page. With Cross-Linker it’s all possible and these terms will be hyperlinked maximally 3 times (each term 3 times) per post. Actually you can configure more than that; Attributes, linking to your own posts, importing blogroll links, adding HTML tags to be ignored, adding blocks of text that must not be hyperlinked by Cross-Linker, managing characters which are allowed as “part of a word”, managing currently active or inactive hyperlinked words and terms, or exporting and importing data, and also including creation and restore of backups.
Additionally it’s also possible to define language of your page which tells Cross-Linker whether to use all words from the database, or those in (say) English, German, Russian, or so!
