FTP Publishing - April 2009 #3

This morning, we note that Blogger has added 2 new servers in their FTP Publishing array.
If you are using Blogger to publish to your own website and your host blocks by IP, you will need to allow through the IPs of the new Blogger publishers. The IPs are:

74.125.66.132
74.125.112.132


Whether these 2 servers completely replace the previously documented array is unclear right now.

Considering the problems they've been having with FTP publishing, not showing anything as published, but it was, and then I was getting an xB error. I got around it by using draft.blogger.com and getting what I wanted published done, but that didn't work others.

Hopefully things calm down now.

Thank you so much for always keeping us "in the know" when Blogger leaves us in the dark!

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.
