MGID Widget Code Installation on the Blogger Platform


MGID widget code (Simple JS) is a website-level MGID installation code that publishers use to integrate widgets on a website. Unlike standard installation code, the Simple JS tag is designed to be lightweight and efficient. It ensures minimal impact on site performance and avoids extra steps from the publisher's end.

The widget installation code contains two pieces:

  1. Head Script: This is the MGID preloader that should be placed inside the website <HEAD> section. 

Example of the script: 

<script src="" async></script>

2. Body Container: This is the div element where the MGID widget should be rendered inside a blog post.

Example of the script:

<!-- place in the body --> 
<div data-type="_mgwidget" data-widget-id="1464221"></div>

5. Add the Body Container script inside the page template.

Detect the place where the widget should be visible. The easiest way is to use the browser inspector tool and find the name of the element where the MGID widget should be visible. As an example, we will place a widget after an article and the post-outer section.


Find the element in the HTML editor, insert the Body Container in the required placement before or after the chosen element. 


Click Save in the HTML Editor. MGID widget should begin displaying instantly. 



In some cases, clearing the cache on your end is required for the widgets to appear. 

The widget is now on the page in your desired placement.
