Widgets Load and Overload

Written by on January 21, 2011 under News


Being crazy about widgets is only normal but there is such a thing as overdoing it. In most cases, it would be best to rationalize and determine what widgets you will really need rather than installing and getting them just because you want easier reference points to news, programs and sites.

Further, a large number of widgets can really slow down a site. Remember, you are getting feeds and data from a certain website, and depending on the frequency of update/s, it can really be a heavy load on your desktop or your site. Some people will not care but once you notice the decline in speed, chances are that is the only time you would wise up and take action.

No one is stopping people from getting as many widgets as they can. However, limits and understanding the point to which widgets should be used is a responsibility that perhaps only a wise user would have control over with. In fact, a user would know the limits of his site or desktop but apparently at times, it can only be addressed once inconvenient connections start setting in.

So in a manner of speaking, you are overloading your desktop with widgets and the only way to be able to address it is limiting the widgets based on what you really need. For some it would be a problem but in its entirety, it is useless to have standby widgets if you eventually forget what they are really for.

Tips To Make The Most Of Widgets

Written by on January 18, 2011 under Widgets

Widgets are the IN thing. You see them everywhere – web sites, blogs, and social networking sites. But are widgets really important or do they give way to indulgence? I would like to think the former, but the latter is all very real. Here are some things to remember that can help you make the most of your widget experience.

Use widget to offer content.
There are so many widgets out there – which one to choose and use? I think the bottom line is that you should choose widgets that will add to the experience of your visitors. Choose widgets that will enhance their visit and that will give them new information. Eye candy is all very nice to look at but it doesn’t last. Widgets that provide information, however, will keep drawing visitors back to your site.

Choose widgets that are related to your site.
Many widgets offer information, but is the information all related to your main content? While information is always good, you would be better off choosing widgets that link to what your site or blog has to offer. This way, your visitors will truly appreciate your widgets – and not just for their looks!

Avoid widget overload.
Have you ever visited a site which loaded up sooooo slowly? The chances are there are way too many widgets. More than slowing down your site, trying to cram as many widgets as possible also has a cluttering effect on your site. Now who would want a cluttered experience?
