+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.

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.
