Custom Domains: A Small Status Update

Google Custom Domains is a great way to combine the versatility of an externally published website (letting your blog be accessible thru a non-Blog*Spot URL), with the feature set of a Layouts template blog. But many Bloggers know the full story - - Custom Domains still needs work.

For those of you who are using a custom domain, and would like for instance, "www.yourdomain.com" to be accessible as "yourdomain.com", we have a small status update.

I asked
Do we need more people suggesting that "www.martinezumc.org" should equal "martinezumc.org", or are you guys actually working on that issue?


And was told
We're working on that, too :)


So, Chuck, you can't always get what you want. No, that's another issue altogether.

I guess that it's another case of recommending both Patience, and Persistence. Try a mixture of both.

Well this is encouraging. I hope the issue is fixed soon with minimal work to be done on our end. I will try and remain patient and optimistic.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
