Show Your My Web Saved Pages On Your Site — But Still No Add To My Web Button!

Oh, such disappointment. Back when Yahoo released My Web 2.0, I
wished for an
Add To My Web button that could be placed on my pages, to encourage readers to
add them to Yahoo’s My Web. Catching up on reading today, I saw the
My Web Badges, now
live!
post over at the Yahoo My Web 2.0 blog. Finally, I thought! Nope, I
found, when I went over to the
My Web Badge
creation page. My Web Badges aren’t a way to get an Add To My Web button.
Instead, they are a way to share the most recent pages saved within My Web.

Specifically:

  • You can share the most recent pages you saved within My Web
  • You can share the most recent pages everyone’s saved within My Web
  • You can share the most recent pages you’ve tagged with particular words
  • You can share the most recent pages everyone’s tagged with particular
    words

Pick your options, and you get a handy bit of code that will show your saved
pages on your site. Oddly, you can’t choose to share pages that your community
has shared. It’s either you or what everyone’s saved, rather than that middle
choice.

Being able to show picks is nice, but I still want that Add To My Web button.
C’mon, Yahoo get with it! If Jeremy can use Greasemonkey
to put Add To
My Web links on Google, Yahoo ought to be able to give publishers the ability to
do the same thing on their own sites.
