The Testfreaks Widget

July 14th, 2010

TestFreaks.com is a great site for locating product reviews from actual consumers as well as expert test results on a large selection of products you may consider buying.

The main interface is simple and easy to use. Just choose your item from one of the main categories. Including things such as computers, car stereos, kitchen appliances, personal care, golf, phones and much more. Drill down further to find expert and consumer reviews, test results and even links to purchase products.

If you own a website, TestFreaks has created a JavaScript widget that you can use to display expert and consumer reviews.

The widget in its current form, needs to be modified in order to deliver the reviews for the product of your choice. Don’t fear though, this is as simple as finding the TestFreaks review page for your product, copy the URL for that page and replace the URL in the widget code with the one that you just copied.

This will get you well on your way to adding rich product content to your website.

RateItAlL raises $800k.

June 24th, 2008

RateItAll claims to be the site for consumer reviews about anything. they have a very cool widget. one of the best if not the best Rating Widget there is. not so much because it is the most evolved Widget  or the prettiest widget around (as you can se,it is not). but because they got the best model around the widget service. you get half of whatever your widget and your reviews in the site get. 

While RateItAll got a lean mean quality operation. it remained small until they got a big boost thanks to their MySpace App and now are on a faster growth pace.but it is worth of note that unlike other start ups they always were profitable.

I hope this round of funding means a Widget Revamp and more Widgets to come from them and not just a tuning of the company. in the meantime congrats to them. i report a lot on Widget Money lately but now  it is not common to report it from the smaller operations.

Lawrence Coburn, CEO of RateItAll is also the guy behind the SexyWidget Blog. that besides Widgets Lab is one of the few Widgets Blogs worth reading. just don`t expect him to be as charismatic as me. that is of course… impossible. 😉
