It`s so easy to forget what`s on offer here at EzineArticles. It looks simple enough to set up the widget, I`ll go have a try at one right now. Thanks for the reminder.

Off topic I know but the e-mail contact system is seemingly not working.

I have had an article come back as a “problem” for the most bizarre of reasons which I have to dispute. WHO IS CHECKING THE CHECKERS?!

A problem article really stops you when your in a flow of writing, especially when it is for an unworthy reason.

For any of you that have doubts. I am not the world’s most sophisticated at computers or internet and I put the widget on one of my websites in under two minutes.
Believe me if I can do it, you can do it.

I checked and our email support ticket system is functioning normal.

I’ve had the widget on my website and my blog for awhile now and it really does increase traffic to my articles. I just added the ‘author sign up’ widget too. Thanks for these great easy to use features.

Actually, I was looking around in my EzineArticles account a couple of days ago and I wanted to use the article widget on my blog.

But, I’m still using Blogger and they ask for a URL, instead of a ‘code’.

Any suggestions?

Not sure what I`m doing wrong, but the size insists on staying at the 270×400, and I`ve had to manually change the size code to 160×300. I changed the theme to green from red, the green displays fine on the widget set-up page, but, when I add the code to my blog it reverts back to red!

Our tech folks tell me that Blogger probably doesn’t support cutting and pasting of raw HTML code. You may want to take the matter up with them.

In the meantime, you may want to try simply adding the URLs for a few of your top articles and changing them regularly.

Somebody from our tech staff will be contacting you soon about this problem.

Thanks so much for the tip. Ezines really does have quite a thorough system for article promotion! The widget went it easily and looks great on any page.

I am interested in this widget but I am unsure about the effectiveness of placing yet another outbound link on my pages.

Has anybody managed to get any real stats on the effect of the articles themselves and then the widget used in combination compared with traffic before the widget was put on board.

I’m pretty new to this whole game, but I want to set things up in the most constructive way possible.
