BlogSend Issuing Email For Updated Posts

Many of us use BlogSend, with or without the inclusion of Google Groups, for notifying ourselves and others when a post is published to our blogs.

This offers a good alternative to a regular email subscription, especially (before this month) when people only want notifications of new posts only. It's also good for the rare reader who doesn't want to access the Internet to read our posts, and who wants to read our wisdom in their email reader only.

This week, we saw several discussions suggesting that people were seeing BlogSend notices generated for updated posts, originally published many months previously. This afternoon, I updated my post Help Your Readers Search Your Blog, and shortly afterwards I noted an email in my Inbox.

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.

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.
