I believe this topic has been discussed before; however, I'm not sure what information had been provided. Does Upwork have, or does Upwork plan to provide widgets similar to those provided by Elance https://www.elance.com/php/myelance/main/widgets.php ?
It's easy enough to develop your own widgets, but it would be more professional if users could obtain widgets directly from Upwork in order to establish better uniformity and recognition for these Upwork related widgets used on the Internet. I doubt very much it would be in Upwork's best interest if members were to start developing their own versions of widgets for use in marketing their Upwork Freelancer Web presence.
