  1. Salam Kenal..
    Saya nggak komen tentang way kambas tapi tentang widgetbuks-nya.
    setahu saya widget iklan itu kodenya udah ada yang terbaru.tolong diupdate mas, soalnya bisa menjatuhkan pagerank-nya blog ini. coba cek di press roomnya WB. widgetnya mas masih ada hidden text linknya tuh. itu bertentangan dengan aturannya mbah Google.
    cara ngeceknya : non-aktifkan javascript di browser-nya, trus refresh. mas akan lihat ada text dengan linknya.
    bandingkan dengan widget saya di http://tentangbisnisku.blogspot.com
    sukses mas ...
