Interesting And Useful Blog Posts
|I must admit that this post is inspired from something I read on Blog About Your Blog. What I'm going to do is list a few recent posts, from other blogs, that I have found interesting. I've kept them about the main themes of this blog i.e. making money, promoting blogs and so on. No more waffle, let's get on with it.|
Blog Tutorial 6 of 10: Design and Layout - Google ads? Affiliate Programs? Links to other sites and blogs?
Okay, so that's one heck of a long title but there again this is a long, in depth post that Kat has written, that's her on the right. As you can gather from the title, this latest part of her tutorial (10 parts when complete) covers the design and layout of a blogger blog. A few of the subjects covered include:
Finding Blog Designs and Color Schemes You Like
Changing your Blogger template - colors
Changing your Blogger template - layout
Advertising on your blog
Linking to other blogs
It's an excellent read with lots of useful information.
Money-making review: Agloco, is it a scam?
I do like people who don't follow the herd and think for themselves. I also like a bit of controversy. My Brazilian friend, on the left, therefore fits the bill with his post. Agloco are big news but are they all they seem? As Julio writes: 'So people sign up. And then what? You find out you've been had.'
Wonder if you agree with his opinion?
A few sophisticated directories
I had to pick one from Blog About Your Blog so I chose this one from ed the editor. Like any good title, this one says it all. Here are his suggestions which might be an alternative to using unproductive Blog Directories (see from my Weekly Reports how little, in the way of referrals, I get from directories). I'll leave it to him to tell you his recommendations but, as he says, 'I am not promising the earth, but they may just deliver something more than the normal 1 visitor a month!'
Learn more about your Visitors with Google Analytics
I don't know if you use Google Analytics but, from the other side of the world to me, Rob writes from New Zealand: 'Once you have been tracking your site for a couple of months a range of very useful data is accumulated with all manner of information about your visitors, referrals, search terms etc.' Is the info really useful? Can we get a bit bogged down with statistics and charts? See what you think.
I'll leave it at just the four this time, especially as the first one listed will take you a while to read - don't let that put you off though.
