Say Goodbye To Old Blogger

The migration to New Blogger 2006 is in its final stages. If you haven't gotten the monolithic demand, you will any day.
Move your account to use the new Blogger

No "Please", no "Soon".

You may, for a limited amount of time, have one last chance.

There are two possible web site addresses, to login from.Let's see how long the latter remains operational. And don't logout, or you're done.

If you have a blog with team relationships, you would be very much better off migrating NOW, while you can plan the migration properly.

But before you get to this point, please organise your accounts - make sure that all account names and passwords are up to date. You won't even be able to migrate your blog to WordPress, if your account / password isn't up to date.

Now, some of you who read this might think that I'm a shill for Blogger. But you're wrong. I haven't been a fan of Blogger, blindly, since March 10, 2006 - the day that I (my blog) joined the 403 Club. That was not the happiest day of my life, and it marked the beginning of my (unpaid) career as a Blogger critic.

But, even as a critic, I know that we're going to have to move forward. We're stuck here in Oz, Dorothy. You can't click your heels and go back - Kansas isn't there any more.And welcome to K-Mart, where the customers provide their own support.

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. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

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.
