Interested developers can build Universal Gadgets by using Google’s API, and then users can take the Google Gadget and put it on any web page.
Here is an example using buySAFE’s Google Gadget. All I had to do was go the buySAFE Shopping Google Gadget page, tailor the look and feel of the Gadget, and then cut and paste the following HTML code into my post.
<script src="http://gmodules.com/ig/ifr?url=http://www. buysafeshopping.com/bss_module.xml&up_showSearch=1& up_showCategories=1&up_showWatchList=1&up_searchTerm =diamond&up_category=-1&up_lowprice=&up_highprice=& up_sellerName=&up_sort=1&synd=open&w=320&h=450& title=buySAFE+Shopping&border=%23ffffff%7C0px%2C1px +solid+%23595959%7C0px%2C1px+solid+%23797979%7C0px %2C2px+solid+%23898989&output=js"></script>
Voila! The buySAFE Shopping Gadget is up and running on my blog page. Go ahead and do a quick buySAFE Shopping search via the Gadget below. In my opinion, this is very cool.
It was very easy to create the buySAFE Shopping Google Gadget, and some developers are reporting that it can take less than 5 minutes to create simple Gadgets. Check it out and have fun!
