Feedburner Showing Two Different Types of Feeds?

June 16, 2009

I’ve noticed something today after a post over at webmaster-talk.com. Apparently Feedburner chooses to show two different types of feeds even under the same URL. I’m not sure what it was that triggers one or the other, or how to even fix it, but I have noticed that one of the source code feeds is in HTML whereas the other is in XML. Is this an error in Feedburner and what makes it determine which one to show? Anyone know?

Page Rank Updated to 2

June 1, 2009

Google has shocked everyone with a random pagerank update a couple of days ago.  This site got boosted up to a two (yay).  If you need to check your pagerank, you can install the Google Toolbar and select the Pagerank option.  Pagerank is just a measure of how many sites are linking to your site.  Do a search and you will find tons of stuff!

Playing Around with Feeds – Feedburner

June 1, 2009

Ok, so today I’ve been checking out feeds, you know, the ones that your website or blog software might automatically create, yet you never know what to do with them 🙂 So anyways, I wanted to see how many readers I currently have at a couple of sites. Using a popular service called Feedburner, I’ve managed to create new links, and also reroute the old links to the new Feedburner ones. Also you can get an update of how many readers you currently might have (a useful feature). I’ll see how it goes and keep playing around with it (there are a lot of settings).

I’ve already burned JesusDevotionals feed at Feed. This is really a good program, (Feedburner), I don’t like the idea of losing control of my URL (which you can set to redirect), but I guess it’s the only way. I’ll let you know how it goes. Next to come, Top Country Videos feed!

Finding DoFollow Blogs – A List

May 16, 2009

Matthew has made at post over at http://www.matthewsimiana.com/dofollow-blog-list/ on a free list of dofollow blogs.

What is a Dofollow Blog?

Well, a “dofollow” blog or site is a slang word for a website that does not have rel=”nofollow” in it’s comment section, and thus gives you credit for in backlinks that are placed in the comments section. There is a great list to check out over there, or feel free to leave your “dofollow” blog in the comments section.

I have been wondering if there is a way to turn this blog, a WordPress.com free hosted blog into a “dofollow”?

Free Domain Name!

May 15, 2009

Grab a free .co.cc domain name over at http://www.co.cc. There are also many websites that will give a free subdomain name such as 000webhost.com but you will have to use their hosting (for the subdomain). Hope this helps!

Adsense Tanking? Is There a Future?

May 10, 2009

If you have noticed your Adsense earnings decreasing this last month or so, you may not be alone. As a matter of fact I’ve been able to find many threads across the net, particularly at Webmasterworld on the decline in earnings many are beginning to see, and in some cases dramatic decreases (80% or more).

Google hasn’t released anything officially yet, but many are reporting CTR (click thru rates) decreasing dramatically as well as earnings and also many PSA ads being shown where normal ads originally were. So will this trend end or continue after bottoming out?

Here are a few if you were concerned with your Adsense earnings:

Testing Out Twitter (Finally) and SEO Results

May 10, 2009

So I have finally broken down and gotten a Twitter account, not for my personal use but more for my Country Music Blog, which will give followers a chance to see updates to the site from their Twitter accounts, (which I figured would be convenient for them to do so).

I’ve written an article (short) on how Twitter will be using a new search feature at New Twitter Search. And I will attempt to keep my viewers updated, as well as track my progress on Twitter and the Social giant, and possibly document the things which I discover in the process. Wish me luck. Oh by the way, if anyone cares the link is http://twitter.com/Country_videos. I shall endeavor on this new Twitter journey hopefully picking up some useful tips along the way!
