Computer users are always on the look-out for better applications that are not only fun and easy to use but actually work as well.  One of the better computer applications to come along is the widget.  Widgets are stand-alone applications that can be embedded on sites authored by a user such as a webpage or a blog.  They are also being commonly used in social media site profiles.

Essentially chunks of code installed for the purpose of sharing content, widgets may or may not have implications on a site’s performance depending on the widget type.  Users who opt for widgets typically desire an enhanced web experience both for themselves and their site visitors.  Widget developers on the other hand, hope to offer a win-win situation where the cost of development gets paid as multiple users accomplish their own objectives through the help of the widgets.

Widgets work best for a site where it is considered relevant such as a Destination Locator Widget for a Travel Site.  Many widget owners have found a way to explore the functionality of seemingly unrelated widgets for their personal use and surprisingly ended up with favorable results.  The basic rule here is to find widgets that complement your site in the absence of obvious similarities of purpose.

For maximized use, site owners or bloggers should take into account SEO concerns.  At this time and age where everything is put in place for a purpose, it wouldn’t hurt to harness the full potentials of a computer application.  The widget developer generally has full control  over the application although there are services available which allow customization to better fit the purpose of the user.  The next time you see those visually-attractive widgets that appear to work perfectly on others, stop and consider what makes it work for them and develop your options for your own site.
