I think that your tracker is wonderful, and it's cool. But I do not understand why a competing website would want to advertise WI's findings on their own site? This does not make any sense to me. I know that WI was not the first to have PJ's outlet sales as an announcement at the top of the board. Other sites were doing it first and very successfully, too. So I do not know why any of those other sites would even need to use WI's tracking widget, in essence advertising for WI. Seems like a plow to just get free advertising to me. And I am sure it will be a very successful marketing tool for WI, which is good for your site. After all, more members/customers are good for your bottom line.
I am sure I am in the minority on this (which I normally am when I feel strongly about voicing an opinion). And that's okay. I know that no one has to agree with me, and that I do not have to agree with them. This is just one of those things that strikes me as odd and strange. If I was running a website that tracked the release of a mystical flying creature, I sure would not put a widget to a competing website's tracking of the same creature up on my site. Maybe they have more hands in the pot and can get the info quicker then I could, but what would be the point of running my own site if I relied on someone else for all my information. If I wanted to do that, I would not run my own site. Just my opinion, and I hope I stated it respectfully enough that no one lashes out at me.
