How to add Widgets to a Website

What is a Widget?

A Widget is a third-party application which can be embedded on a website through a code. These widgets occupy a small space on your website and display useful information. Widgets often attract users and compel them to visit the website again. 

These widgets can be embedded by pasting the code in the Html section of the website.
There are many widgets which are available on the internet like visitor tracker, online users, ticket bookings, clock, weather widget, etc. In order to get the code you just need to provide a few information about your website. And once you save the code in the Html section of your website and publish, your widget will be visible.

If you search on the web you can also get a handful of sites who provide you widget codes without any registration. Its better to use those sites for getting the widget code. There are also many sites who give you code for the required widget but in turn put some ads for their publicity on your website. I would recommend you not to use such sites for generating widget codes, because such ads give an unprofessional look to your website.

You can even add chat rooms, chat bots and online discussion forums on your website. These tools make your website more interactive. They are also available in the form of codes. Moreover social networking widgets are also available which helps you to increase traffic to your website.

Its always recommended to use less widgets on your website or blog because, use of more widgets might lower your sites's performance. Since widgets might not load properly on slower connection and might display some error messages on that part of the web page.

Always try to use widgets from authentic and genuine websites only.
