The good: You like the way it looks. It makes it easy to identify your blog (uniqueness). The bad: Check the file size. Large images can slow down the site. I'd try to limit it to 150KB. It ends up being the branding for your website (what makes your website identifiable), but it looks rather generic. You probably want to brand your website more ...

I went on the cache version of your blog. It seems like it is low quality and badly written content, with a lot of adverts all over the place, with the actual aim to direct visitors to your main website, bannerbuzz.com. A lot of the content you have written looks like it's been outsourced and this is reflected in the generally low quality of the posts. An ...

Unfortunately no one can say you when Google will. According to my experience it can take a lot of time, also several months.

I assume you're referencing Blogger (blogger.com)? Referer spam has been a problem on Blogger and other blogging sites for a very long time. Unfortunately there isn't an effective way to block it because it's very difficult to distinguish legitimate referers from spammers. Editing your robots.txt file will not help because spammers often use fake ...

Unfortunately, you're largely stuck unless you feel like doing a bunch of data mangling. Tumblr provide no full-fidelity export process, and don't seem terribly interested in doing so anytime soon. Gina Trapani provides a little background here as well as a link to a backup tool they produced in 2009 that's Mac-only, beta, and which no longer works due to ...

I believe what you want is to add this inside the <head> tags in your site's template - this should be a conditional piece of code that adds a noindex meta tag to ONLY your archive pages: <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "archive"'> <meta name="robots" content="noindex" /> </b:if> See more on blogger template variables.

See this question and my answer over at ServerFault.com. When you have a CNAME, you cannot have other records of different types on the same hostname. This isn't a limitation of 1&1, it's a limitation of DNS itself.

Probably http://www.HTTrack.com/ is the right tool for you: It is an easy-to-use offline browser utility and allows you to download websites "to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer".

Blogger is not a registrar. When your client signed up, he or she should have received an e-mail from Google Apps detailing whether the domain was registered through eNom or GoDaddy (the registrar partners used for domain registrations). If your client does not have his or her domain purchase confirmation e-mail, the DNS settings may be completed by ...

Have you followed these instructions http://www.google.com/support/blogger/bin/static.py?page=ts.cs&ts=1233381 and changed the CNAME for your domain?

All covered in the blogger documentation.

Your new domain, chankeypathak.com, has not been indexed by Google yet, so it is too soon for any page rank to have been transferred or lost. Give it some time (a few days to a few weeks, depending on how quickly your blog used to be crawled) for the Googlebot to index you. You can check how many pages in your site have been indexed using Google's ...

Contact your webhost. Unless you've set up your own server and are using that, you have to ask your webhost to redirect the IP for you. In which, as @Su' said, you'll have to get your own dedicated IP (Which is probably going to cost more). IPs and URLs aren't synonymous. They are two different entities that are tied together using a server configuration ...

No it is not. You can buy a domain at GoDaddy or any other registrar. Then use it as your blog through blogger. You will need to setup a CNAME Here are the instructions from Google http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=1233381&page=ts.cs Blogger offers two free publishing options for your blog: hosting on Blogspot ...

You can add canonical tags by editing your blog HTML template. (See this Google support article on how to edit the template HTML: https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/46870?hl=en) Then add code like this to the <head> of the document: <ItemPage><Blogger><link href="<$BlogItemPermalinkURL$>" ...

i agree with @lese majeste you need to work on content, its the hardest part and the one i struggle with the most. However to try and increase traffic or at least encourage my few readers to spread the word i have added twitter, linkedin and facebook buttons as this is where i promote my site the most and also where i generate the small amount of traffic i ...

Before you start worrying about widgets, advertising, RSS, or any of the other peripheral components to your blog, you need to actually have good content. If you don't have good content, you can add all the widgets and "java codes" you want, and you'll still just have a useless blog that no one visits. "Content is king" isn't just a cliche. It's an axiom of ...

Also, you could take a peek at the template file for the different pages. Depending on how your site is set up, there's likely a code/comment that calls for the "Continue Reading" tag. In WordPress for example, by default the quicktag is what you'd be looking for.

Use widgets that provide HTML and JavaScript, then copy and paste that into your post. To display recent posts, for example, you could sign up for FeedBurner, then use the HTML code generated by their BuzzBoost widget (under Publicize>BuzzBoost in the FeedBurner control panel) to display the latest posts from your RSS feed in the blog post itself.

You could set up your site in Google webmaster tools and request reconsideration that way. Google recently published a blog post about how they are responding to requests better http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2011/09/reconsideration-requests-get-more.html

Use Goddaddy nameservers Learn NS-management interface in order to add needed for 2 sites (hosts, not subdomains!) RR in zone definition Select names for your hosts (let they be www and blog in this example) Read blogspot docs about using your own hostname with service (it will be smth. like "you have to point your host to somename-of-blogspot-domain"). Do ...

Google's public PageRank values are only updated every few months, so a new site will not show any page rank until that gets updated. But really, you should stop caring about PageRank. It's a pretty useless number that condenses over a trillion web pages into an integer between 1 and 10. Instead, look at your traffic - are you still getting the same number ...

Yes. The blog remains unchanged, it's the domain you use to get to it that changes.

First create a blog and then add widget with costum search

Actually, I'm getting yannbane.com in positions 2 and 3 in Google (UK and US) for the term "tautological cascade", and site: command reports 29 results for the whole domain. The only thing outranking you, in fact, is your own WordPress.com site. So the lack of data in GWT is something else. Google knows you've moved.

You should login to your adBrite account and set what type of ads to display. Also you should know that some of the ad's may disqualify your site from being accepted into some other ad networks and affiliate networks. So be careful about what type of ad's you display. Type being popup, popunder, peel away etc. Another problem sometimes with those networks is ...

The closest I could find is this Facebook Like URL data Extract Using jQuery PHP and Ajax http://www.99points.info/2010/07/facebook-like-extracting-url-data-with-jquery-ajax-php/ This does pretty much what you want, it's based on the older facebook layout. You can style it however you want. Basically jQuery is fetching the image and the status is updating ...

Since multiple URLs can be used to pull up the same content you need to use canonical URLs to tell Google which one is the primary URL. In your case it would be: <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/page.html" />

Mistake 1. Making your own backlinks Mistake 2. Reading on how to make your own back links Mistake 3. The wiliness to create content on a 2nd site for the primary of objective of feeding back to your money site. In this day and age it is pretty much pointless to spend time building links on Web2.0 platforms such as Blogger. The time that goes into ...
