Site Aggregator in SharePoint

Most often you Google about links and you come across something favorite..

Next time you wish to visit the same link..

You wished you know the site of that link ……… If I had just bookmarked..is your next thought…….

So why not add these favorites’ links at one place instead of bookmarking across many browsers……

SharePoint 2007 has a built-in site aggregator . Best use it 😉

Simple steps :

1) Add the site aggregator web part.
