    I would love to include Hubpages Widgets on my other shopping sites, but I need to put jewelry hubs on jewelry sites. It would be great if a widget could pull from a specific Hub Group. Until then, I can't use the widget to promote HubPages on my shopping sites, because the links just wouldn't make sense to my shoppers.

    ...if I may say, that's a damn good idea!  I hadn't thought about that.

    I have yet to find any real use for the widgets. Its not customizable enough to integrate with any of my sites and just looks foriegn, w/o a tracker option its hard to judge how it performs per hub, I much prefer just using a tag rss and the rss widgets in my WP or Blogspot sites.

    I actually designed a few of my sites, to go with the HP design and layout, so the widget looks nice on it. But it's useless for me now.

    I noticed that when looking at your sites posted on profile and now I remember you did that intentionally to allow visitors to jump back and forth between the two with minimal visual jarring.

    I peeked at your hub tags, seems like the tag rss option would take a lot of work as you dont seem to use any general tags like "jewelry" or "necklace" that would work the way I use them

    hopefully some time the widgets will get the full treatment, i wonder if any third party has ever developed one?

    I think this is a great idea!

    Maybe have an advanced option on the widget that pulls a tag or something.

    I agree with suforged, that I haven't been able to find use for the widget because it just doesn't pull specific anything.  Plus, they stand out.

    I have dozens of sites, that I would place a customizable widget on. I've thought about coding one myself - but time - I just don't have the time these days.
