Top Droppers Widget for BloggerIn this post, I am going to cover the Top Droppers widget for Blogger. The Top droppers widget is meant to display the links of top droppers from Entrecard on your sidebar. While recent droppers widget will reward every dropper for a short period of time, the top droppers widget will reward only bloggers who consistently drops on you. If you have a good blog, then the droppers will fight hard to get a link from you. In return, you might get regular droppers.

Now, we will see how to install the Top Droppers Widget for Blogger/ Blogspot. If you have followed my instructions to install the Recent Droppers widget, you will find the instructions here very similar.

How to install the widget?
  1. Log in to your Entrecard account

  2. Click on the "Statistics" button, located on the top menu.

    Entrecard Menu - Statistics button

  3. Scroll down the Statistics page to a section titled "Top card droppers". You will see an orange colour RSS button besides the title. Click on the feed button.

  4. This will open a new window. Look at the address bar in your browser window. The address should look like "". Copy the address; we need to use this later in Blogger to create the widget

  5. Now, log in to your Blogger account

  6. On your Blogger Dashboard, click on the "Layout" link

  7. This will take you to the "Page Elements" tab. Decide where you want to insert the recent droppers widget and click on the "Add a Gadget" link accordingly.

  8. Scroll down the list, find a gadget titled "Feed" and click on the "+" button

  9. This will open the "Configure Feed" window. Here, you need to paste the URL copied from Entrecard (Refer to step 4). Click on the "Continue" button

  10. If you have pasted the feed URL correctly, you should see a prview of your top droppers in the window now

  11. Blogger allows you to display a maximum of 5 droppers. If you want to display less than 5 links, select the number accordingly. Once you are satisfied, click "Save"

That completes the installation of your Top Entrecard droppers widget. Feel free to post your queries here, if you have any. Please subscribe to my feed if you like this post
