+1 Buttons Are Now Here

A few short weeks ago, we were seeing various anxious posts in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, from people wanting the latest Google improvement.
How do I get the +1 button?

Now that it's here (check my Share buttons after each post), some folks have displayed mixed feelings about having this on their blogs.
How do I remove the "+1" icon underneath each blog post?
A few may be worried needlessly.
How do I get rid of it? It displays my GMail address, that I don't want people to see!

If you really want to get rid of it, just disable the Share buttons option, in the "Blog Posts" wizard. But maybe, you're worried needlessly.

Like a long ago confusion about your email address being seen in the navbar, this may be something that only you can see.

I just logged in to my blog, in two different browsers, using two different Blogger accounts. In each browser, I see my email address for that Blogger account, in the +1 popup.
Click here to publicly +1 this as xxxxxxx (xxxxxxx@gmail.com).
The point here is, I see myself, in each browser. If you look at my posts, you'll see yourself.

Check it out, for yourself. +1 this post, and see.

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.
