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.

  1. 2 items down on the right. below some "play" ad and an upgrade to windows ad.

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  17. I see it Clayton. No problem.

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

    Likewise your "Followers" thingie.

    Cheers

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

  21. 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.)

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