A New Game! Let's Go Porn\\\\Next Blog Surfing!!

Several months ago, I started a series of posts which I entitled "Adult FriendFinder", or "AFF". Adult FriendFinder has been long known for providing Internet advertisements using pictures of "local" women, with many of their pictures frequently described as pornography.

An unidentified criminal organisation is currently producing a large number of blogs, which are being hosted by BlogSpot, and which use Adult FriendFinder ads as their signature. These blogs are maintained in great volume, so when you use the "Next Blog" link in the Navbar for any amount of time, you will likely surf to one or more.

The volume of these spam blogs, or splogs, in BlogSpot, is one of the reasons why I, and a few other bloggers, now advise those with blogs read by sensitive people, to remove the Navbar from your blog. I make this advice, ever mindful of Blogger repeated advice that the Navbar should not be tampered with.

And this is why I currently refer to using the "Next Blog" link in the Navbar, as "Porn\\\\Next Blog" surfing.

Adult FriendFinder was recently censured by the FTC, and promised to cease producing pornographic advertising easily visible. They claim to have hidden any undesirable pictures behind a warning.

The latter claim is, to put it mildly, hot air. To truly understand what I'm talking about, you will have to see for yourself. But, only look after you have properly prepared your browser. Please, do not surf these splogs without protection.
Please, if you are disturbed by the nature of what you see, do not complain to me. I am only advising you to look, so you may understand why your blog gets so little random traffic, or why your page rank has dropped recently. Please, complain to Blogger, and do so frequently.

Like any game, there are rules. You are free to develop your own, however (and leave me comments here discussing your rules), if you wish. I explain the rules, and show a sample game, in my next post.

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.
