More Information:

Q: Is it clickable?

A: Yes, like all our real-time content. You can provide any
click-through URL.

Q: What is a CSS Selector?

A: The standard HTML way to select the part of the page that you want. For example, enter #myidname to match an object with an id name, or .myclassname to match objects with a class (make sure there's only one object with the class). If you don't specify any selector, you get the whole page. You can also enter top/left/height/width coordinates to crop the selected area.

Q: Can I put this in a web page too?

A: Of course - follow exactly the same steps, except for choosing "for Web Personalization".
