The Edit Pages Display

Similar to the "Edit Posts" menu, the "Edit Pages" display is the center of your blog maintenance activity. Since each blog can have a maximum of 10 pages, the pages are enumerated in a GUI array - as opposed to posts, which are not limited, and which are enumerated in the "Edit Posts" list.

For each page, you can
  • Edit (using Page / Post Editor).
  • View (using the browser).
  • Delete a page. If you delete, do so very carefully. And do not delete a page, to quickly clear its content, with the intention of publishing a new page with that same title. You may use the same title, but the page URL will never be the same.
  • View comments for the page.

Since pages don't have dates, they can't be saved as "Scheduled", and there is no choice to display pages selectively. All pages are displayed, in all cases.

Chuck, you say you can't save a "draft" page, but I've got one waiting in the wings right now.

I got it my saving my page from the page editor but not publishing it.

When I look at Edit Pages, the icon for the page is (a) light gray (versus blue), (b) defined by a dotted line (versus unbroken), and has the word DRAFT centered below it (also light gray).

It's a different UI than for posts to be sure, but it's there.

Dang, you gotta keep a constant eye on the changes. Something new every minute.

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.
