iGoogle : Take it personal

Remember, it was last year, May 2007, when Google launched iGoogle, the Google Personalized Homepage. It started with seven gadget templates and today, there are over 47,000 gadgets, covering everything from the weather forecast, tips of the day, finance market summary, and webcams of the world.

This customized tool is not only great for user’s, but also for advertisers. You can get information at a glimpse, but you can also be on your frequent visitors’ homepage, everyday!

For instance, I always miss my family and friends’ birthdays. It is not that I don’t like them, or that I have too many of them, it is just that I always forget. Now I browsed iGoogle for a birthday calendar gadget and added it to my iGoogle. As simple as that, I will have the list of coming birthdays at a glance on my homepage.

As an SEO, you could take this opportunity to be the friendly tool and increase your sales everyday! Create the gadget related to your customer’s need: a birthday calendar for a Flower delivery website, cheap flight search tool, mobile phone reviews.
