Is The Amazon Search Widget Appearing on the Right Side Of My Blog?

I can't see it at the moment, but I am behind a fairly secure firewall.

UPDATE: Most people can see it, but the ones that can't are curious.  I think it is firewall related, because I can certainly see it from home.

Yes I see it as "Amazon Search 2.0".

Since I can't seem to comment a screenshot, I'll describe it. Things included are: a picklist with Amazon sub-categories (e.g. Books, Music, etc.). a text box and a "Go" icon, suggestion list, Amazon.com logo, "Get Widget" icon, and a Privacy link.

Since I can't post a screen capture, I'll just say the features I'd normally expect (e.g. Amazon.com logo, sub-categories picklist, text box, "Go" icon, etc.) are there.

Yes, it's there Clayton-

Right under the "Search This Site" gadget.

J. Glenn Wade said...

yes

Not seeing it in New Hampshire.

(Finally a chance to comment helpfully.)

I see a "search this blog" box, with "Amazon Search 2.0" below it.

I'm assuming that would be it, unless you also have some other search widget.

Yes, it is appearing for me.

Kirk Parker said...

I can see it.

I'm behind a secure firewall, too, but in my case it's all about preventing inbound connections. We don't block any requests from inside, so far as I can tell.

Sertorius said...

Yes. Running Firefox 20.0.1., release version.

asdf said...

yep, I see it. It's not at the top though. I see SmartFurnture, Seearch this blog, Thai Girls looking for marriage, then Amazon.

Glen Hull said...

Yes

Ed H said...

It is showing up on my desk top at work. Came up slower than the other items, but is there.

David said...

Yep. Right there on top, and it seems to work also...

Paul Sand said...

I can see it on my Windows 8 laptop, not on my Linux desktop.

Matt said...

yes.

Bill Beeman said...

I'm seeing it using Firefox 20.0.1.

Eric said...

I see a smartphone-like image that says 'Search Amazon' on it.

Gladorn said...

Using Chrome, I can see it. Haven't tried to use it, but I've got $80 to my name until pay day.

JohnG said...

I see it Clayton. No problem.

Jeffro said...

Yes. "Amazon Search 2.0"

Minicapt said...

"Amazon Search 2.0" as text appears, but no suggestion of a button or activity to be triggered.

Likewise your "Followers" thingie.

Cheers

I can't see it in Safari on my mac or Firefox on Windows 7.

Paul Sand said...

Apologies, now that Adblock Plus is disablled on my desktop, it shows up just fine. Duh.

Denis said...

Well, that's strange...

Yes, I can see the gadget, and yesterday I posted here saying so, but now I don't see any such post from me.

Have I been "disapproved" or something, Clayton?

There were no other comments visible when I made my post. (Now I'm wondering if this one will show up or not.)

Denis aka Eskyman

Denis: I think your original comment went into the ozone somewhere. It isn't the spam comments category.
