Lijit looks useful. It is a search application installed on this site as a WordPress plug-in. You can see the Lijit search widget about halfway down the sidebar on the right of this screen.
In theory Lijit improves WordPress search and drags in social network content. I’ve seen no evidence of this.
After a month the plug-in was used a total of 16 times. Over that period there have been more than 5300 visitors to the site, so the strike rate is low. No-one has clicked the button in past week.
There was a fancy-looking Lijit widget, but this was the slowest-loading part of my site, so I switched back to the plain text version. This may explain why there’s so little activity.
I’m going to persevere for a few more weeks, but unless I can find a good reason to stick with Lijit, I’m going to drop the application.
Is there something important about Lijit I’m not getting here?
