What is a widget?
As defined by my favorite online encyclopedia – Wikipedia: (Widgipedia – Wiki Widgets)
A widget is anything that can be embedded within a page of HTML, i.e. a web page. A portable chunk of web. A widget adds some content to that page that is not static. Generally widgets are third party originated, though they can be home made. Widgets are also known as modules, snippets, and plug-ins.
Why do I need widgets on my website?
Widgets can be fun tools that you can add to your website to educate, entertain, inform and otherwise engage your audience. They are little bits of code that can be customized and simply added to your website to add spice and content and allow your website to appear up and coming and exciting instead of back dated and boring.
By simply adding a few widgets to your website you can add a pizazz where before there was little to none. They are embedded right into your website so that when someone uses your widget, they are not leaving your website and instead are interacting with it. If you have 8 seconds to get a website visitors attention, then widgets for your website can help!
