If you’re a real-time startup these days, it’s all about distribution, distribution, distribution.
That’s what Collecta is trying to do by launching widgets that you can embed into your pages with real-time search results streaming down the page. I’ve built one about Google Voice that’s pictured to the right.
The process of building a widget is fairly simple. All you do is enter in the search terms you’re looking for, the width and height of the widget and then a title, and you’re done. There are also extra options to integrate an external style sheet to control the look and feel of the widget further.
There’s also a version for WordPress users, otherwise you just copy and paste the code pictured below.
