Disable The "Mention people in your posts with Google+" Popup In Post Editor

We're seeing a new sense of frustration, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken.
How do I prevent the constant offer to
Mention people in your posts with Google+?
in Post Editor?

This is a new Blogger / Google+ feature. Like many Google+ features, this one can be refused. Many blog owners, seeing this offer, refuse it - and are never bothered by it, again. Their refusal is retained, by Blogger, in a Blogger cookie.

If you refuse the offer properly, Blogger Post Editor will remember your refusal, and not bother you again - if your browser / computer does not unwisely block cookies and scripts.

This unwanted offer, repeated, is another example of what we should expect, when we do not setup our cookie and script filtering properly.

The mention feature appears to be one more option being offered to people who are updating blogs published under Blogger accounts which use Google+ profiles. The unwanted persistence is apparently irritating some blog owners.

This feature, like many in Blogger, is sensitive to both filtering of cookies and scripts. You may need to enable (stop filtering) "third party cookies", in your browser and on your computer. That's the most common solution, for this problem - but you may have to search for other filter(s) that affect your use of Blogger / Google.

You can have a cookie or script filter
  • In a native browser feature.
  • In a browser add-on.
  • In a security feature, on the computer.
  • In a network device.

Remember that that any and all filters must be set properly. If you have more than one cookie or script filter, that's affecting your access to Blogger, all filters must be set properly, before this offer will stop popping up, in your Post Editor sessions.

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.
