A Second Small Step Towards A Cleaner Blog

A few days ago, I witnessed a transient implementation of a feature that many bloggers have been asking Blogger for, for quite a while. With any blog of any decent size, almost everybody has a few posts that really should be removed. But who has the patience to delete each post, one at a time? Until today, that would be how you would delete multiple posts - one post, then another, and another.

Not now.


I select 3 posts to be deleted.



I hit the "Delete Selected" button, and get a simple yet serious warning.



I hit the "OK" button, and now they are gone.


Quick, and easy.

Being able to perform actions on multiple items at a time is something that I try to implement in all my administrations when I develop something for a client. The users always appreciate it.

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.

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.
