Major Google Search Result Update for Google Plus!

23 Comments so far

imageGoogle was trying different minor changes after the arrival of Google Plus but a major update occurs yesterday. This is really a good change in my view. The change is that now the Google Plus users can search in their desired websites. Let me explain you in detail.
For example me or any of my friend in my Google plus account friend list shares MBT on Google plus and very next day I search for BLOGGER TRICKS on Google. Now what Google will do is that because the keyword BLOGGER TRICKS is related with MBT and i have shared it in my Google plus account so it will first crawl MBT blog and will show me the results from it first.

Since People often prefer Graphics over text, therefore webmasters and professional bloggers have started multiplying their current traffic with their niche related videos.

Add "Thumbs Up" Rating Widget To Blogger

48 Comments so far

thumbs up widget for bloggerBlogger provides the default star rating widget but I just came across a widget by JS kit that offers two options. You can either use with a star rating look or you can set it to "Thumbs Up!" It counts the total number of thumbs up or thumbs down for each of your posts. The visitor just needs to click his rating option and the count will be automatically incremented. This widget also shows four tabs which displays the likes made by the visitor himself and also shows popular topics under the Hot/Top tabs. It also displays stats for that post. I really found it interesting and I would recommend that you add it to your blogs to engage your readers more and increase your overall page views. The readers would love to explore Hot and Top topics on your blog using this widget.

We always advise 10th grade students to start learning blogging because by the time they will graduate their tiny blog would have become a revenue generating engine.

How To Remove Blogger Threaded Comments?

36 Comments so far

Remove Blogger Threaded CommentsYou can observe that we have rolled back threaded commenting from our blog. The only reason was that since this feature is new therefore it involves some bugs. The biggest problem that almost all blogspot blogs are facing with threaded comments is that when you click a post link, the user is taken to the bottom of the page where comment box exists. In other words, upon clicking post URL, the control takes you to comment box rather remaining at top. This effected our AdSense Revenue and PageViews. If you are relaxed using this new commenting system then you may simply neglect this tutorial but if you think that you will add back the threaded commenting feature once all bugs are removed by Blogger Team then you can follow the easy steps shared below to get rid of this new feature.

Blogger Users Can Continue Using Google Friend Connect

17 Comments so far

friend connect will not retireGoogle Friend Connect as you all know is a free social networking site which allows your website visitors to join your blog to build a profile and interact with each other by sharing information via third-party sites. Blogger users who follow blogs using friend connect receive updates straight in their dashboard. This service was introduced on 12th of May 2008 but on November 22, 2011, Google announced that Friend Connect will be retired for all sites by March 1, 2012 and encouraged use of Google+'s pages and Google+  badges instead.  This shocked almost everyone because it took web owners great efforts to build Fan following using Friend Connect. Should Blogger users worry as well?

Blogger Threaded Comments For Custom Templates

217 Comments so far

UPDATE: If you would like to remove thread comments then read: Remove Threaded/Nested Commenting

blogger threaded commentsJust yesterday we shared a tutorial and announcement on Blogger's most awaited feature of threaded (Nested) commenting system. We shared how to enable threaded comment style in official blogger templates but that method don't work on custom templates which are downloaded from un-official designers. Almost 75% of blogger users prefer using un-official templates and since this feature can't simply be resisted therefore we took some time to install it safely and apply all required codes to make this feature function properly after a lot of trial and errors. The tutorial below is first time shared and will offer the easiest way to add threaded commenting style to blogger blogs. I had received some JavaScript codes from our Malay speaking Fellow bloggers and Indian Guest authors which was producing the same effect using scripts created by third party developers but the reason I delayed those guest posts was due to their browser load time conflict issues. I am glad Blogger team provided us with a much neater and fast loading script that has now surely pushed blogspot blogs to the next level. Lets get to work then!

99 coins story

As you groom and grow more mature, your tastes and hobbies change. When we were young we often used to watch cartoons a lot but today as time has changed we hardly watch them anymore. Believe it or not I often accompany my niece in watching cartoon programs especially the ones on POGO TV. My Paendu friends often laugh at me for this but that is just ok. I often get inspirational ideas from short animation films. It may sound funny but just yesterday I learnt a brilliant lesson from a story based on rich landlord and a poor farmer. Which I would like to share with all of you. I just hope my narration puts the same impact on your minds as that of the animation I saw yesterday.

jQuery Facebook Likebox Popup For Blogger - v2

98 Comments so far

Facebook Likebox popup
The previous version of jquery popup for Facebook Like box was warmly welcomed by all of you. Most of you requested social media links to be added to it along with a RSS subscription form. Normally it's a standard to keep it simple with just a subscribe form and Likebox and adding social media links does not make sense here. However if you wish to have them then please vote by posting your comments. I am a little busy with some other tasks therefore designed this new version in hurry. You can easily add it to your blogger blogs as well as wordpress blogs. The steps are exactly the same and we will be using the same Lightbox script that we used in creating a simple Subscribe Popup form. I will further troubleshoot some problems that you faced with the earlier version. Lets get to work then!

Why Host Blogger Blog on HostGator?

89 Comments so far

blogger blog on hostgatorBlogging is your business which requires investment both in terms of energy, time and money. As time goes on your little blog will grow and draw attention of search engines and social media in terms of traffic. Visitors enjoy when you offer something unique and something that may help them and provide them with a reason to visit your blog. I started blogging in 2009 with blogger and as time passed I started enjoying it and this hobby turned into a profession. I needed a reliable company to help me expand this little blog so that tomorrow we could add new tools and resources to it. Readers deserve the right to be provided with an open forum where they could exchange ideas and interact more openly with one another. Off-topic questions often result in deletion and therefore a Forum becomes important when you want to keep things simple and clean.  Google Blogs unfortunately doesn't allow access to the server where your files are hosted for free. Which means you can not create sub domains for your blog where you could add a Forum, portfolio page or services page. Thus a reliable web hosting company becomes a necessity.
Note: This is part1 of our series on choosing Best Hosting for your Blogs. I will be sharing my personal experiences here, technical details, personal help, web hosting plans and discount coupon codes.

How To Host Files on Google Code For Free?

29 Comments so far

File hosting on googleGooglepages were amazing resource for bloggers who could not afford web hosting costs. I remember, it offered a free storage of 100MB but due to its failure Google replace it with Google sites which proved to be far more unsuccessful. Development is increasing therefore Google showed its generosity again by providing a free 4GB upload storage with an  amazing upload limit  of 200MB per file! I found it too important for blogger users. We often need direct links to host JavaScript, jquery and some flash files. Due to low quality free serving sites like mydatanest, fileave, boxtr etc., I thought it would be great to share how can Google help you in this case. Lets learn a new free way to host files.

I must remind you that you can upload anything you want under the limit of 200MB per file. May it be Java, php, MySQL or even pyThon.

The great social media blog Mashable is always an inspiration in whatever they do. I came across a great wordpress plugin created by inspiredmagz and they named it as mashable social bar. We downloaded their plugin and converted it to a blogger compatible form. We also managed to solve its compatibility issues for IE and further strengthened its HTML structure. This widget can now be used in every blogspot blog just with an extremely easy installation step. As you can see this widget contains links to your Facebook Fan page, Google+ page and recommendation button, twitter follow button, RSS and LinkedIn links and most importantly an attractive subscription form that will further increase the number of your Email subscribers. The conversion didn't took me very long and I am pleased to present it to all of you. Kindly see a demo first:

happy new year 2012

Wishing you all a happy new year and a splendid memorable year ahead. Can't believe how quickly time passes, with every blink of a eye time changes colors. Every new year brings surprises with it and every human has his own reserved portion. I just hope the coming happenings should bring love, serenity, success and joy for all of you. Year 2011 was the toughest year for me keeping in view both my family and career. I lost a gem, but at the same time I grew more responsible and thankful for everything around. I learnt to respect and love my dear ones around. I learnt to give first priority to family, second to career and third to friends because everyone respects an established companion so make sure dear brothers that you are not wasting your precious time and remain busy with your struggle for survival.
