How to on Using Labels in Blog

 

Labels are great way to sort and mange the posts on your blog. When I started this blog, I was also not aware of what is the use of labels and how to use them.But they are one of the essentials in your every blog post. If you are also not using them then trust me you are missing a big thing in making up your blog.

 

Why and How to Use Labels ?

 

As the number of posts grow it is very difficult to show them up on your main blog page because your blog becomes to bulky to be opened up by a browser, so here comes the labels. They allow you to put different posts under different categories with specific words you choose. So whenever a person searches for any keyword on your blog then the posts with the same labels or keywords are showed up in the search results. This lets the viewers surf your blog in a very easy manner. For example the person search for posts related to Apple on your blog then all the posts with label apple are shown in the results.

 

 

Using Labels in Blogger blogs:

 

  • Open up your blogger account on blogger.com
  •  newMake a new post.

 

labels

  • Now after you finish writing your post, put the labels in the field “Labels for this post:”
  • Then click onpublish publish post.

 

Setting Labels in Blogger blogs:

You should also show up the labels in your blog through tag clouds, i have found an amazing flash animated tag could @ bloggerbuster.com you can use it easily and it looks beautiful too!.Always try using main keywords for labels like technology for gadget articles, news for latest news posts and so on. So if you are not using labels then start using them now.

These recent attacks raised the question if Google will survive in China or not. Now after Microsoft has found the problem they are trying to rectify it as soon as possible to prevent such kind of incidents.

 

Microsoft told that Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 of all their popular operating systems like Windows 7, Vista, XP and Windows Server 2003,2008 are vulnerable to such kind of attacks. It was also found that the attacks were also made on companies like Adobe, McAffe including Google.

 

The fix to this will be included in the next patch by Microsoft which will be released on February 9.

Google may shut down in China !

2 Comments

Google Recently Google made it clear that they may shut down their Chinese version soon. According to Google, the reasons behind it are Hacking attacks over Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists and the Google itself through some kind of malware. These activists are from US, Europe and China itself. It is also said that similar attacks were made on many other organizations in China. As a safety guideline Google asked its users to not click on suspicious links in their emails.

 

After considering the scope of attacks which are being made from last one year , Google came to the conclusion that the target of these attacks is to limit the free speech on web. The Search Engine Giant has decided to not to censor the results in coming days which means defying the Government of China. So this may ultimately lead to shutting down of operations of Google from China.

Google Nexus One a short review

0 Comments

Google Nexus One

Finally the rumors were over, on January 5 2010 Google released their first phone called Nexus One and stepped into the market of mobile phones.

Though the phone is not completely built by Google, we can say Google has assembled the phone with some parts from its own hood. And it is not surprising that the OS running inside it is Android which is also under Google. In my opinion this phone is the true competitor of Apple’s Iphone. This is my first time that I have compared any gadgets, so check them out.

I was just comparing these phones and I found that Google Nexus One is really giving a tough competition to Apple Iphone.

How to make a Twitter Background and increase followers !

How to make a Twitter Background

Twitter is spreading like fragrance all over the blogosphere these days, and if you are blogging than a twitter account is must for your blog. It help you shout for the updates you do on your blog. And these updates make impact only if your Twitter account has a large number of followers.

 

How to increase twitter followers ?

 

Although you can start following multiple people in a day on Twitter but that will not bring those interested followers to your account which are formed naturally. To bring those natural interested followers to your account, one way which I have seen on many successful bloggers accounts is their gorgeous looking Twitter Background.

 

How to make a custom Twitter Background ?

 

A twitter background should be like an overview of your website so that a follower can understand what you write about. The custom background can also act as a Business Card showing your personal information.

 

For a twitter profile i would suggest you to make a background of resolution 1024 x 768 px. In twitter your background overlaps with your profile, if the resolution is decreased.

Here’s how profile overlaps on different resolutions

 

When viewed in 1024 x 768Viewed in 1024 x 768

  When viewed in 1280x 800 Viewed in 1280 x 800

 

To tackle this you always have to make sure that your profile looks perfect in 1024 x 768 screen resolution. If the twitter profile looks good in this resolution then it is obvious that it will look perfect in bigger screen resolutions.

 

Layout Plan of Twitter . Twitter Layout Plan

 

Make new file with a resolution of 1024 x 768 px and then you should design the background within 150 to 155 pixels from the left edge. This is my approximate value from where you should design it will look perfect when applied on twitter and viewed 1024 x 768 to any resolution.

 

exampleExample

In this 150 pixels design space, start designing from top left corner. Here  you can show your blog logo, you web address and write a short description about you web site like i did on my background. Always show your URL on the background as it matters the most.

 

And finally save your image in GIF, JPEG or PNG format and apply to your background.

How to add Related Posts widget in Blogger blogs

5 Comments

blogger-logo If you are searching for a blog widget which help you display the related post on your post footer then you are on right place. I have found some real cool widgets for Blogger blogs which can be added to blogger blogs with ease. These widgets are of great use as the reader spends more time reading your blog and you get the maximum benefit. They are the best way to make reader explore your blog in easy way.

 

Some of the best assorted widgets are below, so check them out :

 

 

1. Linkwithin Widget :

 

linkexaple You can go to Linkwithin.com and get this widget by filling up your Email, Web address , your blogging platform and the number of posts you want to show up. No sign-up is required, just fill up the  details and you will see a new page opened with complete instructions on how to install on your blog.

 

linkwithin

1.1 In the first step click on install widget.

 

blogger window

1.2 A blogger window will open then click on add widget.

 

1.3 That’s it now the widget is added on your blog layout .

 

layone

1.4 Just move it to the post footer and click on save, now the widget should be visible on your post footer.

 

2. Blogger Widget :

 

asdf

This widget is from Bloggerplugins.org, it will also display the post the same way Linkwithin widget did. It’s based on displaying the posts accrording to the blogger labels that is the posts related to the same labels are displayed only. This widget is added by editing the html code of your blog. To start applying it open up Edit Html of your blogger blog by signing in to the blogger. Click on the Expand widgets template to open the complete template. Now you have to search for some code and then copy and paste the widget code into the template. You can follow the post here Bloggerplugins.org . Just like the linkwithin widget you can also set the maximum number of post to be displayed by changing the value in this line of code :

 

var maxresults=5;

 


So these were the two widgets with thumbnails, there are also other widgets which display only text links to the related posts but I think they do not have much impact on the reader as the ones with thumbnails is more attractive.
