    I wrote a detailed review on this plugin. here
    I want the developer to answer me
    I am really thakful to you that you give away this plugin for free, but in return what you are taking is too much, i was using this on my blog Design Rapid
    By looking at source code i found
    $rv.='<tr><td><div><script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-8907793348376201"; /* 468x60, per plugin e widget wp */ google_ad_slot = "8331203622"; google_ad_width = 468; google_ad_height = 60; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script></div></td></tr>';

    You are showing your own ads, further 7-8 affiliate link, your twitter handler, google+ handler, donate us button!!!! thats what i found till now
    It come to my notice after i found i am getting unusually low CTR after istalling this plugin, by installing this plugin you may ask us to donate but you can sell your plugin for some money, but you can't do things like this, this is really unethical

    I think those ads only show up in the Settings page in WordPress, not in your actual website. I left a comment about it on your blog. I'm curious too because my CTR has also decreased, although it could be just a coincidence.

    By the way, the author does not check the WordPress forums. If you want to contact him, you should leave a comment on his site.
