Blogger Profile Surfing - A Focused Replacement For "Next Blog"

Besides surfing blogs using Following, which will let you identify other bloggers with possibly common interests (hoping that anybody who Follows your blog would be somewhat interested in what also interests you), we have the possibility of surfing blogger profiles using profile keywords.

When you edit your Blogger profile, you can specify keywords which correspond to specific things that interest you. Having done that, those keywords become links, to profiles of other bloggers who have specified those same keywords. Be sure to check the spelling - you'll be able to test it immediately.

In fact you can search for blogger profile keywords without actually putting the keywords in your own profile.

If for example you wish to search for bloggers with "memories" as a keyword in "interests", put this into your browser:

http://www.blogger.com/profile-find.g?t=i&q=memories

(where i stands for interests)

to find bloggers whose favourite books include those by John Cowper Powys, put this in browser:

http://www.blogger.com/profile-find.g?t=b&q=john+cowper+powys

(where b stands for books)

Other parameters:
s = music
j = industry
m = movies
o = occupation

It would be so useful if multiple keyword parameters could be entered in a single search string.

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.
