Blogger SEO - Publish, And Publicise

One of the odder questions, by folks who just don't get it, comes from the folks who value SEO - but don't want to work for it.
Why is Blogger so weak on SEO?

What many folks just don't realise is that Blogger leaves the SEO to us - because Blogger supports other folks rights to publish their blogs anonymously, and without SEO. It's your choice - and it's your effort to make - either way.

The choices, provided to us by Blogger / Google, are quite basic.
Which ever decision you make, controlling the search engines is a key step, on the way to anonymity - or to fame and fortune. And use of Google Webmaster Tools is a key process, in controlling the search engines, and in evaluating success.

In either case, learn the issues involved, in fulfilling your personal goal. Don't expect Blogger to do it all for you.

Make your blog a combination of what you want - and what will please your readers.

Who wouldn't want their blog to be known in the internet? Whether you use SEO on it, people will somehow find their way to your blog.

Alexis,

Believe it or not, some people want to stay anonymous - or be visible only to a small group of friends.

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.
