If you're ever in the market to make your own WoW Blog there are a couple of World of Warcraft oriented widgets you might want to consider adding to your site. Admittedly I have probably gone a little overboard with a few but as an html newb it's fun to experiment.
Here are some that I've found:
Adsense - Although not a World of Warcraft oriented item, it does have a special relationship with a World of Warcraft blog. Because any WoW Blogger who puts up adsense will have to contend with Gold Selling ads because Adsense reads the words on your site and matches it to Advertisers who pay to advertise on sites with those words. Apparently gold-sellers are the only advertisers who know anything about WoW.
There are several ways to handle this issue:
- Go nogold and don't list any gold selling services on your site
- Embrace the gold selling, put that Adsense on there and let the pennies-per-click roll in.
- Adventures with Play addresses the issue with a disclaimer at the end of each post (click the link and scroll down for an example) addressed to the great Google-bots and asks for relevant ads for computers or such.
- wowwiki and wowinsider blacklist gold sellers but I wonder how possible it would be to keep up without a team of people on it.
