What is a gadget on Blogger

It's HTML elements, which provides some new functions for the blog. For example, it could be Subscribe by email, Translator, Main menu, About author, etc. They're also called widgets in a Blogspot.

There is two types of widgets: SEO and Usability. 

Sometimes it happens that one gadget is of double benefit, that is, it can relate to both SEO and Usability.

Each plugin is written in HTML and CSS code, in turn this code can be in JavaScript and include additional libraries such as jquery, ajax and others. I will say right away that it is better when JS is clean without a set of different libraries. Even better, when HTML does not include scripts at all, but alas, most gadgets can not do without them?

What kind of gadgets does the site need first of all

The fact is that there are a huge number of different plugins, but not all of them will be useful for your project, sometimes even can have a negative impact on the promotion in search engines. First of all, your blog needs these gadgets:
  1. Main menu (preferably horizontal, on top of the main content).
  2. Page navigation (numbered or endless scrolling pages).
  3. Breadcrumbs.
  4. Box about the author of the article or blog in general.
  5. Buttons of social networks.
  6. Similar Posts (better dynamic type, especially when the site has a large number of pages).
  7. Recent or popular posts (there may also be random posts).
  8. Headings (blogger labels).
  9. Next ~ previous post (use if the topic is very narrow)
  10. Subscribe to Email newsletter (if visitors return)
These are the main tools to promote a blog. Try to avoid adding extra plug-ins to make pages load faster.

What do search engines like

As I said before, plugins can be written in simple HTML or more complex, using Javascript, which is much harder for search bots to parse, especially when the script is encrypted. So, I usually check the gadgets via cache Google or Yandex. If the widget is displayed on the site page in the search engine cache, then good, and if not, then the site pages may lose several positions in the search engine output.
