IM Glossary – List of Internet Marketing Terms
Here, I would like to share with you a list of internet marketing terms that you might need to understand as you build your website and learn about internet marketing.

A widget is something that will appear in a certain place on your WordPress website. It is used to add different features to your website. Some are “behind the scenes” features like SEO, while others can create stuff for users on your site to interact with the site.
