Improvements In Reporting #2

Wow. Look at Blogger Status now.

Friday, June 09, 2006

Late last night we pushed new code and once again replaced harware in order to combat the problems of the past few days. As of this morning it appears to have improved the responsiveness of the site, altho' there are still fixes we want to make to get Blogger faster for everyone.

Also, we are working on fixing the problems some users are seeing with photo upload failures.

For many users, Blogger will have been extremely slow or down for most of the morning. We continue to work on fixes for this problem and hope to have it resolved as quickly as possible.

Update (4:45p): We are planning another infrastructure overhaul to address the significant problems we've been having in the past several days.

Update (6:59p): We've made another change that has improved performance, but we are also planning to make additional changes this evening.

Update (10:45a, June 9): The issues with the database servers have been resolved last night.

Compared to what I quoted in Another Day Of Anguish, we have major improvement.

Let's try and encourage this improvement. It is badly needed.

If it helps you guys at all I've been able to get around the photo upload problem intermittently by uploading pics to a blank post and then copying the html code into the post I want the pics to appear in.

I'm not sure why this works but it does appear to do the trick sometimes.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
