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.

Is there a widget I can put on my site to show my hubs, as Bukisa or Ezinearticles provide?Most sites where I contribute articles, provide widgets to showcase my work, on my site.

What is the purpose exactly of widgets?I added the cut and paste area in widget section and added to articles in my blogger account it takes up alot of space with all those letters,numbers and symbols. Will this jumble help to increase traffic to my hubpages?

There used to be a great hub explaining how to add someone else's widget to our blogs. I already have a few out there but I can no longer find the information or access the widget for other hubbers.See discussion on Q & A here: http://huntgoddess.hubpages.com/questio …...

I'd like to add an Amazon UNbox (video downloads, currently in beta test) widget to a hub.- am I allowed to paste HTML into a hub capsule? If so, how do I do this?- since UNbox is not offered directly as part of the HubPages system, would adding such a widget result in my iste being classified as...
