Mountain View-based search engine giant Google has rolled out a total of 4 new Web Elements. Web Elements allow you to include Google services into your website or personal blog with ease. The new Google Web Elements I am talking about are: Virtual Keyboard, Wave, Sidewiki and Checkout.

Virtual Keyboard Element
Google has recently announced that in order to help non-English speaking users easily enter a search query into Google Search, it has rolled out a virtual keyboard that provides support for 35 languages (see here). By getting the Virtual Keyboard web element you too can add a virtual keyboard to your website or blog. Simply select a keyboard layout, then copy and paste the HTML into your page.

Google Wave Element
Google Wave is the service that makes communication and collaboration online quite easy. You could use a Wave to encourage collaborative discussion among the people that visit your site, or as a way to publish content on your site. Whatever you want to use the Google Wave element for, you can grad it here.

Google Sidewiki Element
Google Sidewiki is the browser sidebar that allows the user to share his or her opinion on specific webpages as well as read what other people have to say about that webpage. All comments are rated by usefulness. Visitors to your webpage can more easily share information with one another if only you integrate the Google Sidewiki element.

Google Checkout Element
If you want to easily charge visitors to your site for the merchandise they want to purchase, then you need to get the Google Checkout element. With Google Checkout, you can easily create an online store.

“Google Web Elements are great for folks who don't have much time or experience. However, even for advanced developers, elements are a great starting point, as most are backed by an underlying API to give you even more control over the content or look and feel,” commented Jeff Scudder and Adam Feldman on behalf of the Google Web Elements Team.
