An auto tagger plugin designed to automatically include valid stock ticker symbols as tags, along with their official name.

An auto tagger plugin designed to automatically include valid stock ticker symbols as tags, along with their official name.

The plugin works by detecting $ticker symbols such as $appl or $gm and converting it to a tag, along with an automated process to fetch the stock name from Yahoo! Finance and include the company name as an additional tag for search engine optimization of your financial blog.

How does this work?

When you make a post in WordPress, simply indicate that you're posting a stock ticker using the dollar sign symbol. For example, $gm to indicate you're posting about General Motors Common and the plugin will automatically add gm as well as General Motors Common to your post tags.

Can I automatically link the tag?

We have another plugin called the StockTwits Ticker Link (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stocktwits-ticker-links/) that will automatically link your $tickers to social media streams for the ticker.
