Widget Stats
Posted by Gordon Smith

Most blogs have several widgets. Some bloggers are widget crazy. We at Conglomerate are very discriminating in our use of widgets, but I found this survey of the Top 50 widgets from Lijit quite interesting ...

By far the most popular category of widgets is analytics (about two-thirds of blogs have at least one analytics widget), and Google is the leader by a mile. Some surprises (to me):

  • Only 22% of blogs have Sitemeter. That widget seems ubiquitous among the blogs on my reading list.
  • MyBlogLog appears on almost 15% of blogs, but it seems not to have hit the law professor blogs, yet.
  • Truth Laid Bear looks to be on less than 4% of blogs. There was a time when everyone had the Ecosystem widget, it seemed. We took it off a long time ago.
  • The Twitter widget appears on as many blogs as the Amazon Associates widget.
  • I have never heard of about half of those widgets.
