Wow, 2 of mine get 600,000 and 400,000 /week respectively.

Sad part is, the 600k one has been down for a few months. I should really bring it back.

if only I had a way to monetize it so I can afford to bring it back. Any ideas?

Maybe you can add a small temporary "donation round" message using the MiniMessages object, linked to a page of yours? Or you link to "related gadgets" page of yours via a MiniMessage, and include AdSense on this related page.

Of course, MiniMessages might become annoying if over-used :)

Heh. We think alike :)
Since I'm back I'm half-way through the emails and haven't yet started catching up with the forum or blogs, by the way.

Nope. So nobody noticed. Maybe I used a wrong title or stupid wording.

There's a way to see the no of page views for almost ANY gadget from the directory (not just for the universal gadgets).

Hmm. It won't show numbers for my Multi Search 2 module.
google.com/ig/directory?synd=o ...

It does show numbers for Multi Search 1 though:
google.com/ig/directory?synd=o ...

Multi Search 2 is not included in the directory (or so it seems):
google.com/ig/directory?url=bl ...

I've also noticed that the search quality is very poor (for example, my feed is not included in the results for [google operating system] and is on #27 for [google os]).

That's a good idea. Maybe if I can sell small ads in mini messages for my free text message one... then I can afford the bandwith to bring the thing back!

I put a mini message with a new feature in my slang translator one and got a lot of visitors to the page I promoted... so it has potential.

I like the mini message idea Phillip,

My modules are bigger than i thought, maybe i need to update them then.
