MyBlogLog widget comes up short

SMS Text

I have to say that the MyBlogLog widget is probably one of the most widely used widgets there is, and for that they deserve a lot of credit. It’s not easy coming up with a widget that nearly every blogger will want to use.
This last year, widget marketing has really taken off and I think it’s safe to say that it will only continue to grow through the coming year and why shouldn’t it? It’s a great way to enhance the user experience by providing users with useful tools, all while getting free exposure for your business.
The problem with a lot of the widgets is that they aren’t search engine friendly, and that’s exactly where the MyBlogLog widget comes up short. The code that is used to place the widget on the sidebar of a blog is JavaScript; therefore they aren’t getting credit for all those back links to MyBlogLog. It’s a shame too; my guess is that the widget would be good for at least several hundred thousand inbound links. So, my free advice to the folks over at MyBlogLog is to update the widget with some search engine friendly code, better late than never.
