The Google Search Engine Is Not The Only Star In The Sky

Your blog, as it's indexed by the search engines, is like a dandelion.

Once you blow on it (and get it indexed by one search engine), it's going to spread all over the yard (the Internet). Picking up the pieces, as in removing your blog from the search engines, is almost an impossible task.

And even private blogs may be indexed, by some search engines.

Google provides us with the ability to remove our blogs (web sites) from the Google Search Engine.

The Google Search Engine is not the only search engine with which we should concern ourselves. With the Google Search Engine feeding, and being fed by, other search engines, what's indexed by Google today may be indexed elsewhere tomorrow, and vice versa.

To get an idea how the major search engines feed, and are fed by, each other, take a look at either the Search Engine Partnership Chart, or at the Search Engine Decoder. Both diagrams are animated illustrations, and both use Flash and / or other scripts.

If you have Firefox, or another browser that block scripts, you may have to permit scripts from "ihelpyou.com" or "search-this.com", respectively, if you are to get the full picture from the animations.

But check out what's provided - you may be surprised at the complexity - I was.

The problem is I didnt have my blog initially set to not be displayed by google. I used a friends real name, and now when i google it, it comes up! I dont even think this friend knows about my blog, nor do i want them to! I also dont want his name to be associated with my blog, we're in graduate school! i tried deleting his last name, and changing it so google doesnt display it, but when i google it. its still there!! help!!

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
