Google Widget Blues


Google Widget

I’ve decided to remove the Google widget from Needlepoint Land’s blog sidebar.

As you can see from the image above, clicking on the widget causes ads from competitors to appear.

I hardly think it’s appropriate for my competition to get a ride on the coattails of the traffic I am generating on my blog without paying NPL for the privilege of doing so.

Dunce hat for Google’s biz dev geniuses on this one.

You can still find Needlepoint Land on Google maps of course.  That’s a keeper!

I’ll just list my address and contact info on a text or image widget instead.
