2012 is near and I am sure everyone of you is awaiting this moment eagerly. I have modified the countdown widget for Christmas a little to set it for new year. This widget can easily be added to both blogspot or wordpress. Simply copy the code and paste it in your templates. The moment new year starts, the widget will prompt an alert message saying: "Happy New year Everybody!" sharp at 12.00 a.m. The clock disappears the moment new year arrives and prompts the alert message. The clock has military standard format with hours, minutes and ticking seconds. This widget is created using a simple script with no flash. For flash clocks kindly check the Flash clocks collection. Lets add it to blogger.

We discussed how an alt tag can put great search engine value to your images, similar value is added by the name of the image itself. When you download images, they get saved with pretty odd names that don't make sense. Because not everyone makes use of alt tags in previous days before Google introduced Image Search. If you are uploading an image having a alpha-numeral name rather than rich keyword, than even if you add alt tag to it, you are loosing chances of better ranking. Confused? Let me explain,

MBT went down yesterday for 24 hours because we have made some major improvements to how this blog will operate in future. I would like to thank everyone for their consistent feedback and for bearing with us during this maintenance. We are in no way interested in upgrading it to Wordpress or any other platform. This blog will remain hosted at Blogger and all its posts, image data and feeds will keep on operating from Blogger.com servers. I personally took this huge risk of transferring MybloggerTricks.com domain from its previous registrar to HostGator because I wanted to add some new features to this little blog. Readership is increasing and I am not able as an individual to do justice with dozens of queries posted everyday. We are looking forward to build an active, lively and useful community for newbie bloggers. In order to bring more exciting ways of improving the standard of blogspot blogs we needed extra storage space and sub domains. All this is possible with an extra premium space where we can save our resources and introduce new online tools. In order to make this possible we transferred our domain to Hostgator and purchased an extra space.

Learning the correct and proper way of Optimizing images in blogger or wordpress is a must. Google Image search is used widely for finding quality reference images, icons and photos. From web designers to normal surfers everyone looks for images that could be added to their profiles, desktop, blog posts, projects and etc. A great percentage of our blog traffic depends on Image search. We add plenty of high quality images to each of our posts in order to catch readers attention but we don’t just add them we TAG them! Search robots can not read multimedia may it be graphic images or flash. An image is meaningless for search spiders if it is not defined(TAGGED). Lets discuss this important SEO lesson in detail.

Whenever we write a post, we try our best to write something about the latest issues. Whenever we change the design of our blog, we make sure that our readers feel comfortable with the change. Whenever we introduce something new, we hesitate whether our readers will appreciate it or not. In short, whenever it comes to our blog, most of our efforts are directed towards getting more traffic, more readerships. And we often succeed in getting them, but are that enough? Do we want our readers to come once and that’s it? Or do we need them to turn into daily visitors?
Would be not wrong if I say you already use facebook like box for your facebook page at your website/blog. But they don’t have any kind of effect they just live at your website/blog like a simple widget. Although this is my first post at MBT but I will try my best to give you more from this tutorial. It’s about how to add a pop out facebook like box with slide effect. Basically it uses JQuery effect for sliding. It is a Wordpress Version of the same Widget Mohammad Posted on "Floating LikeBox For Blogger"
I found a script online that adds a floating Facebook button to right side of your blogs or websites. The button upon clicking slides towards left revealing a Facebook Like Box. It is an excellent coded slider that Hides the Likebox inside a container and reveals it only when visitors hovers the cursor on the floating button. A wordpress version of the widget will also be shared today inshAllah. You can use the same code to add it to your websites or any webpage you may have. So lets add this cool Floating Like Box to your blogger blogs.

The best thing I love about webmaster team is Matt Cutts video tutorials. He discusses SEO Tips and removes misconceptions and myths being wrongly propagated by several SEO agencies. I am proud of Google's great customer service. We all write post titles daily and these titles are responsible for driving most of the traffic from search engines. People often don't realize that every single character in the title has its own significance. Titles that are called the king are only those which are highly optimized in terms of keyword choice, word limit and use of Special Characters that we will be discussing today.

You can either upload the image, photo or picture from your computer or you can enter the Image direct link/URL.
On November 30, 2011 , Brian Ellin posted on Twitter buttons developers page that from December 6 onwards all button widgets will be automatically refreshed with a design update. The new button now looks grey with a blue twitter logo. The aqua blue Tweet button color is deprecated. The @username is merged inside the follow button and follower count is merged inside a dull ugly bubble. This new design is made so that the follow buttons may look similar to Tweet buttons.
What can be more delightful than welcoming your blog visitors with falling snow. The script that we would use today is provided by dynamic drive and creates an animated effect. The snow smoothly falls down the page and then disappears. We can control the number of snow balls and also the time after which they should disappear. You can easily replace the snow image with any image you prefer. The installation as always is kept extremely easy. Lets add some falling snow to our blogger blogs!
The Stickybar or fixed Bar that we released was warmly welcomed. What we all have been searching for was a Close Button or Cancel button that would hide the bar display. May be not every visitor enjoys viewing that fixed bar at the top, so they deserve to be provided with an option to view or hide the bar. While viewing one of the Wordpress Blogs I found this button next to their updates bar. I managed somehow to fetch the script half broken. Making it work with blogger template was difficult because blogspot templates are programmed via XML and the rules of XML are really harsh when it comes to Character case. Debugging the script was difficult but Alhamdulillah the hard work paid off. You can see it Live just to the right of my Stickybar at the top. I am excited to share it with you all. Lets get to work!
Habit often ruin many things in life and same goes for habits related to web designing. Every single month we see new versions of browsers. Technology is changing rapidly and so comes the website compatibility issue. With latest web technologies like CSS3, AJAX, JQuery and HTML5, more brilliant designs are emerging which look outstanding and can't easily be resisted unless you apply them to your web design. Keeping your blog or site clean in design is a good thing but if you are viewing your website in major browsers after every new design change that you make, then you are on a safe side else you may be unknowingly loosing half of your website visitors due to Browser support technical problems.
I never thought it would be that easy. While sharing the tutorial on how to Connect RSS to Twitter and Twitter to Facebook, I observed the mobile phone text messaging option in Twitter that lets you send tweets directly from your mobile phone by sending a text message. You don't need to log in your account to update the status, we only need to send a SMS. By activating this option you can easily update your twitter followers as well as Facebook fans about any blog updates you may wish to share. You can also send emergency updates incase you could not log into your computer from any location in your town, city or country. Twitter doesn't charge you for this except normal standard text charges that your cell phone network may charge. It costs less than one Rupee per SMS which equals peanut. The best thing about this trick is that it works on any mobile, may it support internet facility or not. Its real fun!
Integrating your RSS Feed with both twitter and facebook is really important so that your articles may be circulated as much as possible to drive new visitors to your blog. At present FEED integration is not possible with google+ but I am sure we will find a way for it too very soon. If you visit MBT's Facebook Fan Page then you can observe Twitter tweets on my wall. Those tweets doesn't only contain post updates from this blog but also contain my normal daily life sharings with loyal readers. In today's tutorial we will not only learn how to connect your RSS or Atom Feeds to twitter but we will also learn how to connect twitter to Facebook. This is the normal way that we apply to circulate MBT updates. Lets do it then!
