As many of you have noticed, I've been away from posting on my blog over the last couple of weeks. I have focused on finishing the latest of my tools: The Blog Window widget. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am a great believer in widgets and I am planning on developing many more. Here is my recent post about the future of widgets titled Widgets - The Future of Affiliate Marketing. I have also discussed widgets in an interview with Shawn Collins.
I'm happy to say that the Blog Window widget is finally done. It is a 100%-customizable widget that allows any blog or web site to display the most popular posts or pages of their site.
I have seen some WordPress plug-ins that do the same job but they seem too complex and are limited to a single blogging platform. Not the Blog Window widget. It takes literally seconds to install and works on any site.
The biggest value proposition from the Blog Window widget is that I have observed a 25% boost in page views, just from the widget. It looks like when a reader is done with a page, Blog Window offers him/her a compelling next page to read on your site. They would typically leave the site at that point.
Because the Blog Window widget is customizable, you can make it look exactly like your site and it is quick and easy to do this. You can see my own Blog Window is customized in its look-and-feel to this blog. My AffiliateBrand.com widget has the look-and-feel of my AffiliateBrand.com site:
I'd love to see your comments on how easy it was to integrate the Blog Window widget with your site. The widget is completely free. In a few days I will do a post highlighting unique and interesting implementations of the Blog Window widget, so get yours today.
