Please do not install & waste Your time. Because arena live blog not seo friendly & it's not rank on Google with red LIVE icon

Best plugin for live blogging! After trying pretty much every other plugin/tool out there, Arena.im is by far the best, specially for sports (with live scores, play by play) and breaking news. The widget adapts to my CSS and loads super fast. The support team is amazing and they're always improving and adding new features!
