  1. I’ve never really looked at this widget since the switch from Technorati. I think if you’re really looking to see incoming links, then it makes sense to just check it via Google Webmaster Tools or via Technorati directly.

    I won’t be missing this widget.

  2. I don’t see much value in this dashboard widget. I use Clicky to find out what incoming links are actually being clicked on. That’s a much more valuable metric.

  3. I personally found the Technorati version of the widget much more useful than the Google Blogsearch version.

    Agreed, it is time for this widget to go!

  4. Truth be told I use none of the dashboard widgets. In fact one of the first things I do when setting up a new site is completely gut the dashboard.

  5. I’ll miss it a tiny bit, but only because it’s been there for so long. I agree with you in that it’s been pretty much useless since the switch. Technorati was kinda fun. Not sure how helpful or insightful it was though?

  6. Google’s blogsearch is a heap of smouldering nothing and was, in my opinion, a major mistake from the first. It is one of those experiments Google tried which they didn’t follow up with and which just sits there doing nothing. Sad, but I preferred the Technorati version even if Technorati isn’t what it used to be either….
