Hello Hub community I have an idea if interested !

    Hello everyone,

    I had this idea to create a Wiget Website. This will allow members to add their widget links, which will help generate outside veiwers. The widget is a great feature that keeps all of your articles in one group. I am not sure if wthis is  allowed but it does say we can add wigets to our website. If anyone is interested let me know. If there is enough interest I will start on this.

    Thanks

      Don't we have that already? I have one on my website:

      <snipped - no promotional links in the forums>

      Is that what you mean?

    I suspect that is what he means.

    Look on your profile.  Under your picture is a link that says "Add MrRockster's widget to your website".  That's the widget and of course you can use it on your own website.

    Hello, that is true if you already have a website then you might not be interested, but if not then this could be something that would interest you. This would be a free site to help members generate more traffic. If this does not seem like a good idea please feel free to say so. This is just a suggestion.

    Thanks

    I read it as - how about a website that just has HubPages widgets on it? 

    Like a site that is just for links, only using HubPage widgets for the writers to add there if they wanted to. Maybe I just misunderstood the OP.

    And the Speed Limit for that traffic would be??? sad

      I thought this would get wheels spinning. Just a thought but I think would put these useful widgets to use.  The speed limit could be umlimited.

    Without any real content it’s unlikely that search engines would be interested in indexing it in any great depth. Also how would you monetize it?

    1. MrRockster profile image60
      MrRocksterposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      If you think about it, anyone can use your widget and place it on their website without any permission. But I am asking and only willing to set it up for interested members. I would start it and can add administrators depending on the interest. The http:// is easily  added to googles search engine for free. Which I will explain in another Hub.

      Like I said this just a suggestion to any interested members.

      Thanks

        Please let me know if this is violating any Hubpage rules to prevent any conflict.
        I thought that since you could add members widgets to your own website, Why not create one for everyone who is interested to add to. It could only benefit both hubpage and us.

        Thanks

        Mate....

        The FIRST Part of Transparency with others is:
        DON'T Dodge a Simple Question!

        The SECOND Part is:
        Don't do it with others who may well have More Knowledge than you!

        The THIRD Part:
        Don't Respond to Direct Questions Defensively!

        You Take What I'm saying in this Post Anyway You Like!

        If you are planning to have ANY Dealings with Intelligent People throughout the World... Then Understand My Words and The Relevance of Them!

        Count me out.. Thanks... But I'm not interested in Opaque dealings!

        Perhaps you need to do a bit more Homework before you jump into the swim!

          Thanks for your response,

          Not sure if I did anything listed, but I will scrap the idea. Like i said it was just a suggestion.

          Thanks again

    I'm Not trying to shoot you down mate..

    So don't approach good advice so defensively.. if you can develop a good idea then go for it.. but do so with good research and openness. In that way you will demonstrate to the widest audience that both you and your idea have credibility.

    If you act defensively.. then you give the appearance that you are insincere! Maybe that isn't the case in your country.. but in mine and several others, this is a fact to consider!

    We are All Different... which means that we Think Differently!

      Thanks again, and thanks for the advice I will use it wisely. I am not trying to make enemies here. My main concern was to avoid any conflict with hubpages. I thought this would be a great way to put our widgets to great use.

      Thanks again
