    What's the generic term for these?

    I see these graphical links on various sites, is there a generic term for them? Even a website for them perhaps?

    Did a little research and didn't find anything specific--maybe they don't have an exact term for them. Going along with this site you could say they are "Micro Bars," but others simply collect them with other button graphics and called them, well, buttons.

    I'm settling on "Web Badges". Banners are the large images the go across most of the screen while "Badges" are generally just 80 pixels wide by 15 high.

    I've found this website where you can make your own, like this:-
