Also known as gadgets, badges, plug-ins, snippets, and modules, blog widgets are an embeddable portion of code for blogging platforms that can enhance functionality and usability by encouraging readers to stay longer and return for updated content. Once the code is successfully embedded, widgets help retain reader interest by providing fresh site content automatically.
Programming knowledge is not required. Generally, a third party prepares the code which can then be customized and applied by copy and paste. Content can also be user created with or without outside assistance.
Popular blog widgets and reviews can be found at Gigya, Widgetbox, Widgets Lab, and Mashable.
