Google Buzz website widget

Google Buzz is barely out 5 days. On day 1 we saw TechCrunch and Mashable integrate some form of Google Buzz buttons that allowed you to “Buzz” their content directly into your BuzzStream.

Today, I have been alerted to what I believe to be the first iteration of a Google Buzz widget for your website or blog.

the Google Buzz Widget from buzzcounter.net

As you can see, the widget is a simple yet powerful tool that can quickly build your Buzz audience. Readers of your site can easily follow you or even comment on your buzzes.
This widget is so easy to setup! Just enter your Google Profile name, click the “Create Widget” button and then copy your code.

The widget obviously cannot display comments to your buzzes due to size constraints. (Robert Scoble comments number in the hundreds)

I think a comment counter on each post would be a nice feature that would definitely increase the likelihood of reader interaction.

This is a JavaScript widget, so there may be some restrictions on where you can place it. However, JavaScript does make it iPad/iPod friendly…if thats what you’re into.
