EzineArticles Google Gadget

Do you use iGoogle for your home page?

If so, you can now add the new EzineArticles Google Gadget to display your own EzineArticles or track any of our 126,000 expert authors on your iGoogle custom home page.

Read the instructions here or if you’re ready, click this button and then you can reconfigure whichever expert author (or yourself) that you’d like to track.
Add The EzineArticles Google Gadget to your iGoogle home page

This is our 1st version of a Google Gadget and we’re open to hearing how you’d like to see us improve it.



Very nice, easy to add and set up. A nice feature with the potential to greatly increase exposure, or even just to keep an eye on our own articles. Thanks!

That was quick and easy to set up.

I decided to track Christopher Knight. I know what I have written and I like learning new things. Writing is something I can always improve on.

As an improvement for this feature, it would be nice to track more than one favorite author.

I’m sure you know this Chris, but you can also add an author RSS feed to Google ipage. I did it in the hopes of increased link juice and Page Rank but I’m not sure if these links are counted by Google.

It’s hard out here for a web pimp.

Hi Chris!

I guess that iGoogle is like Twitter. I don’t see any necessity or additional benefit on using it.

Yes, I know you add any authors RSS feed to your iGoogle. :) We had to start somewhere so we figured we’d start with the Google Gadget being nothing more than the XML feed for an author and work on improving it from there.


iGoogle is nothing like Twtter. iGoogle is more like My.Yahoo.com

I see! Do you have any connection with other people through this page or is it simply a personal page where you can see the news you care about?

Great new feature Chris. Thanks for your continous work and improvement to the site. Always curious to see what you will add next.

I’m waiting for possible private lessons about iGoogle from someone who has enough time and enough knowledge to care about teaching me the basics, because I don’t have time to care about this matter! at least not now.

Why should we use it?
