Oh No Robot: Comic Search

Nobot: the Oh No Robot.

Welcome to ohnorobot.com!

If you've got a webcomic, you probably know how it can be difficult for both you and your readers to find a particular comic. What was the one where your characters were all, "WHAT"?
It would be great to have a way to search these comics.

That's where we come in! By adding a small bit of code to your comics pages, you make it possible for yourself and your readers to transcribe each comic, quickly and accurately building your own personalized comic search engine! There is no catch.

As a comic reader, you can help out your favourite comic with a transcription or two - it takes very little time, and the result is totally worth it.
As a comic creator, you can let your readers help you out in the task of transcription, getting the job done quickly. You can approve and edit each transcription before it appears on your site - nothing shows up that you don't approve.

It is very easy and fun and productive and you should seriously get an account. Accounts are free - sign up today! If you've already got an account, you can log in here, or in that little box to the right.

How it works:

Step 1: You, as a comic owner, add a few lines of copy-and-paste Javascript code to your comics display pages. This will make a customizable 'click here to transcribe this comic' image appear on the pages of comics that require transcriptions.
Step 2: You and your readers transcribe comics at your leisure. The task of transcription is made easy by allowing everyone to do just a little bit, instead of one person doing it all.
Step 3: Every time there is a new transcription submitted, you can check it for content, spelling and grammar, and make alterations if you want. Nothing goes online that you don't approve. As each new transcription is approved, your search engine becomes more and more complete.

It's as easy as that! Your personalized comic search engine is available as soon as you sign up, and you can quickly customize its graphics and colours - making integrating the engine with your own site's design easy. What's more, your comic transcriptions are instantly available in general ohnorobot.com searches: so if someone is searching for comics about zombies, and you've got a comic where a guy totally gets bitten by a zombie and then FLIPS OUT, they'll be able to find your stuff. It's a great way for new readers to discover your work.

But wait, there's more:
