The Google Search Engine Is Not The Only Star In The Sky

Your blog, as it's indexed by the search engines, is like a dandelion.

Once you blow on it (and get it indexed by one search engine), it's going to spread all over the yard (the Internet). Picking up the pieces, as in removing your blog from the search engines, is almost an impossible task.

And even private blogs may be indexed, by some search engines.

Google provides us with the ability to remove our blogs (web sites) from the Google Search Engine.

The Google Search Engine is not the only search engine with which we should concern ourselves. With the Google Search Engine feeding, and being fed by, other search engines, what's indexed by Google today may be indexed elsewhere tomorrow, and vice versa.

To get an idea how the major search engines feed, and are fed by, each other, take a look at either the Search Engine Partnership Chart, or at the Search Engine Decoder. Both diagrams are animated illustrations, and both use Flash and / or other scripts.

If you have Firefox, or another browser that block scripts, you may have to permit scripts from "ihelpyou.com" or "search-this.com", respectively, if you are to get the full picture from the animations.

But check out what's provided - you may be surprised at the complexity - I was.

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.
