Blogger Blogs Freeze Browser When Loading

Today, we're seeing a significant number of reports in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, from worried blog owners
My blog reloads in peoples browsers, and causes high pageview counts!
and
My blog crashes my readers browsers when loading!!
When a resource monitor is run while the reported blogs load, you can watch memory usage increase rampantly, as the main page of the blog, in question, loads.

Various conversations in Webmaster Central Help suggest the code associated with the Google +1 Button, which is part of the Share Button array, that's an optional part of the posts, as being involved in the problem. Some folks have noted that deselecting the "Show Share Buttons" in the "Blog Posts" gadget has provided a workaround to the problem, on the blogs noted.

It's also noted that many of the blogs in question have one or more posts which contain YouTube movies, or similar Shockwave Flash accessories. If your blog is suffering from this problem, and you don't wish to remove the Share Buttons from your blog, you may find removing any YouTube movie content to provide an alternative workaround - at least as a diagnostic procedure.

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.
