    Thanks for the explanation, it’s helpful. It’s still hard to comment without knowing what resources already exist. And the specifics of the implementation can largely affect server load and scalability. It’s a lot different if the widget or whatever is only displayed on a single blog view or if a number all appear on an archive page, each reflecting their blog post’s unique data. A minute update interval may be fine or it could bury the server. Of course it depends on the server resources as well. Shared hosting will be overloaded much sooner than a VPS or even better hosting setups.

    Where the raw data is coming from will also factor in. Assuming some sort of API is available, it’s likely limited in how many requests you can make in a time interval. Your widget would want to have a caching element on your server so a single API request can serve many many client updates using the same cached data.

    What you have to initially work with makes a difference. It might be anything from an existing widget in a WP plugin you can just use, to a completely bespoke app developed to work with whatever API is available.

    I guess the first thing to do is find out what resources already exist that you might be able to utilize.
