Introducing Topic pages

We've launched a new section of DJ we call Topic pages and I wanted to let all of you know about it here. We're starting this out with a soft launch so we can do testing on our end, but we have big plans for the future for this new section.
Please note: This feature is still in beta so we'll be working out kinks and improving it as we go.
On the bottom of every article, we now show keywords and all you to view "More on..."
Clicking the keyword will take you to the topic page. These pages are designed to be highly specific niche topics so all content on the page is related to that topic. We feature news articles, blog and images related to the topic.
It could be Facebook, Obama, Julian Assange or games.
We're using keywords provided by writers to create these pages. Topic pages are virtually endless, so you can enter "http://www.digitaljournal.com/topic/XYZ" (replacing XYZ with a keyword) in your browser and you'll be taken to the Topic pages.
We've created these topic pages so readers can find information on a particular subject in one place. This will especially be important in cases where we have breaking news, natural disasters or big news events that have ongoing coverage.
Furthermore, it gives Digital Journalists, bloggers and photographers a new way to get their content seen. If you know there is a big news story coming up, you can file a story, write a blog or upload a photo related to that topic and your content will be featured in these sections.
In the future, we plan to expose trending topics so you can see what people are finding important now and what Topic pages are getting the most traffic and attention.
You can also share these topic pages with friends or link to them on your blog or personal website if you find a Topic that fits with your niche.
