I’ve posted previously about embedding structure images and spectra into blogs and webpages. One of the side effects of this is that for structure images specifically the ChemSpider record is linked back to the webpage that the structure is embedded into. Structures are embedded in various places now into wikis and blogs. An example of 11 embedded structures is shown here.
When Arvin Moser wrote in his blog about Letrozole and embedded the structure image into his blog post a link BACK to his blog post was created in the Data Source table. See the image below.
With this capability, as more people embed structures from ChemSpider into their online pages/blogs more of the internet will become structure searchable and ultimately linked. It does not require adding InChIs to webpages (though that is encouraged for indexing by search engines).
(Caveat: The system is not yet optimal and we are working on filtering out comments on blogs that presently get added as additional links. All “doubles” will be filtered out later)Stumble it!
