Yesterday, we launched the Evernote Site Memory button, which makes it possible for site owners to allow their visitors to remember all of the content that they love. Many sites have already embedded the Site Memory button. We’ve listed some great examples below to give you a sense of how you might implement it on your site.
- Cool Hunting
- Fuel Your Creativity
- Make Magazine
- Craft Magazine
- Four Hour Workweek
- Skitch: All Skitch web share pages
- Nerd Gap
- Side Line Music Magazine
- Ron’s Evernote Tips
Business and storefront examples

We’re really excited about all the sites that have put up Site Memory. Embedding Site Memory does require some knowledge of your site’s HTML and layout. If you’re not the most web savvy site owner, don’t worry; we’re working with leading blogging and site development tools to make adding Evernote Site Memory really simple in the future. You can look forward to many improvements soon.
Important Site Memory Tip: Use Content ID
Filling out the Content ID field in the Site Memory button builder makes a huge difference in the quality of clips that your site will produce. If you don’t tell Site Memory what to clip, by default it will save a link to your page, but not the actual content. By specifying which content to clip, you give your readers a more useful result.
The easiest way to tell Site Memory what to clip is to set the content ID. This is the ID of a container on your page, such as a <div>, that contains the content you want clipped. The content ID will differ from site to site, so it may take a small amount of digging to figure out what to use, but it’s definitely worth the effort. On our site, for example, the main page content is always in a container like <div id=”content”>, so we would put content into the Content ID field. For blog posts, there’s often a container that wraps an individual post. It might already have a unique ID, or you might add on, such as <div id=”post-xyz-content”>, where xyz relates to the specific post. We’ve also put together guides for WordPress and Tumblr.
