Todd (StuntDubl – SEO Consultant) brought my attention to an interesting widget that lets you put in your own rating of a blog. The widget is still in beta but appears to be working well and to be a neat widget.
RateItAll.com appears to have some SEO sense as they are including two links at the bottom of the code they give you for the widget, and the text of one of the links changes based on the category you selected upon sign-up. Lawrence Coburn’s SexyWidget.com is a great place to keep up and learn about widgets. He spoke at PubCon last year and he definitely knows a lot about SEO and widgets. Creating a widget can be a fabulous way to build links quickly (depending on its virality) if you approach it the right way.
I’m going to wait on putting it in the sidebar for now, but please leave your own quick review in the widget below:
