Add Google Gadgets

Do you know that you can use/embed Google Gadgets on your webpage? I only thought you could use Google Gadgets through iGoogle, but now you can add Google Gadgets to your own webpages.

"Gadgets powered by Google are miniature objects made by Google users like you that offer cool and dynamic content that can be placed on any page on the web."

1. Go to the Google Gadget Directory, browse the Google Gadget list.

2. When you find a Google Gadget you like click the button Add to your webpage. It takes you to a preview page where you can customize the gadget to your liking.

3. Change the settings to fit the size where you plan to put this gadget. I want to put the gadget on the sidebar of my blog so I need to keep the gadget around or under 150 pixels wide.

4. Click Get the Code.

Paste the code in the embed box or straight into the HTML code if you know how to do that.

5. Check your gadget now on your page.
