Widgets for Websites
What’s a Widget?
Dynamic widgets are useful applications that can be easily added to web, blog, or social media pages. Widgets include familiar website features such as icons, pull-down menus, buttons, selection boxes, on-off checkmarks, scroll bars, window edges (that let you resize the window), toggle buttons, forms, and many other devices for displaying information and for inviting, accepting, and responding to user actions.
Popular widgets include those that display a company’s Facebook wall posts, YouTube, product demos, polling customer opinions, and RSS feeds. Once created, widgets can be promoted using popular widget directories, including Widgetbox and Google Gadgets.
Widgets are also referred to as badges, buttons, or counters. An example of a widget is the SERP Calculator found on this page.
The Value of Widgets
Widgets can add an interactive element to your blog or website. They can be used to add engagement to your website, aggregate content, increase brand awareness, and connect with your target audience.
When used properly, widgets can have a positive impact on the search engine rankings of your website or blog.
They can also make it simple to republish content from other sites. Social media services often create widgets that permit you to integrate content from those services into your blog or website. For instance, let’s say you have a photo collection on a photo-sharing site. You can use a widget to import it to your blog and turn the collection into a slide show.
