Mashable Like Floating Social Bookmarking Widget For Blogger

But actually people forgot about creating a floating social bookmarking plugin for blogger. So here in this post, I am going to teach how to add floating social widget to your blogger/blogspot blogs.
Floating Social Bookmarking Widget for Blogger
Step 1: Navigate to Edit HTML from Blogger dashboard and check Edit Widget Template. Search for ]]></b:skin> and replace it with the below code
#sharebox {
background
-color:#FFFFFF;
border
-color:#C1CDCD;
border
-style:solid;
border
-width:1px;

#sharebox .float {margin:7px}
.FBConnectButton_Text
{

}
]]></b:skin>
Step 2: This step involves inserting the widget functions into your template. Therefore, place the below code before <div class='post-header-line-1'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div id='sharebox'>
<div class='float'><script src='http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js' type='text/javascript'/></div>
<div class='float'><a href='http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php' name='fb_share' type='box_count'>Share</a><script src='http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share' type='text/javascript'/><div class='clear'/></div>

<script src='http://www.google.com/buzz/api/button.js' type='text/javascript'/></div>
<div class='float'><script src='http://www.stumbleupon.com/hostedbadge.php?s=5'/></div>

<a href='http://www.bloggermint.com/2010/06/mashable-like-floating-social-bookmarking-widget-for-blogger/'><font size='0.3'>Bloggermint</font></a>
</b:if>
Thats it and remember, the floating widget is visible only for blog post, so this widget won’t be visible on your blog homepage. If you need any customization on this widget, drop in your comments and you can also leave your questions at Bloggermint Answers

SEO plug-in for Blogger blogs

SEO plug-in for Blogger blogs

Confused? You shouldn’t be. You might have read about so many SEO plug-ins which are available for WordPress blogs. It’s a little sad that Blogger doesn’t provide built-in SEO plug-ins for Blogger blogs.
Did you ever hear about “SEO Blogger“? This is what I’m going to share in this post.
As the name suggests, SEO Blogger is a SEO plug-in for Blogger blogs which works with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. After adding this plug-in, you can optimize your Blogger post for search engines just after you publish it. This plug-in will ask you to add description and keywords for your post just after you hit publish button (as in the image below).
 SEO plug in for Blogger blogs

What will SEO Blogger plug-in do?

SEO Blogger will add the ‘Description’ and ‘Keywords’ for the respective post in the blog template as we did it manually in one of my post (How to add meta-tags for individual blogger blog post?)
The code which will be added in the post will be same as in the above post but with this plug-in you can do it just after publishing your post.
When you’ll click on ‘Submit’ the code like in the following image, will be added to you template;
 SEO plug in for Blogger blogs

Get this Plug-in

To use this plug-in, you have to work with the old interface of Blogger. As I said above, this plug-in will work with Chrome and Firefox, so if you are using some other browser, then you have to switch to one of these browser in order to work with this plug-in.
Steps to get this plug-in;
  1. Back-up your template (How and Why).
  2. Install Grease Monkey Add-on (click here) , first. (only for Firefox users. Chrome has this script, already)
  3. Now, click here to install SEO Blogger script.
  4. Restart you browser.
That’s it, you are done. Now you can go to your post editor, write down your article and add the keywords and description of your article just after you hit publish.
Note: After you hit Submit button, you may have to wait for few seconds to let the plug-in do it’s work.
I hope it will help you to optimize your blog post for search engines, easily.
Do you know about any other SEO plug-in for Blogger or may be for WordPress?

How To Add Facebook Comment Box To Blogger Blogs

Facebook comment box is one of the useful tool for bloggers to increase conversations. Recently Facebook has launched many social plugins for bloggers and web developers and one such is improved Facebook comment box. So here in this post I will teach you how to add/integrate Facebook comment box to blogger in simple steps. Before getting into the process I recommend you to back up your template and previous comments in blogger wont be visible if you use Facebook commenting system.
Step 1: Visit Facebook developer page and enter your blog name, URL and click on Create application.
Facebook comment system for blogger
Now copy the App ID and save it in a notepad
Facebook comment box for blogger
Step 2: Login to you Blogger dashboard and navigate to Layout > Edit HTML and check on Expand Widget Templates. Search for the code <data:post.body/> or <div class='post-header-line-1'/> and paste the code below <data:post.body/> or <div class='post-header-line-1'/> and save the template.
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
 
<p align='left'><img alt='' class='icon-action' src='http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ubwIhqPcR6M/S_bFnzvtkDI/AAAAAAAAA5A/ta5IbGqJZYU/s1600/cmds.png'/></p>
 
<div id='fb-root'/>
 
<script>
  window
.fbAsyncInit = function() {
  FB
.init({appId: &#39;APPID&#39;, status: true, cookie: true,
  xfbml
: true});
 
};
 
(function() {
 
var e = document.createElement(&#39;script&#39;); e.async = true;
  e
.src = document.location.protocol  +
 
&#39;//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js&#39;;
  e
.async = true;
  document
.getElementById(&#39;fb-root&#39;).appendChild(e);
 
}());
 
</script>
 
<fb:comments/>
 
</b:if>
Change the APPID on the code with your APP ID provided from Facebook and save the template.
Step 3: Now you need to hide default blogger commenting system. So navigate to Settings > Comments and select hide and save settings.
Facebook comment box for Blogger
Note: Using Facebook Comments will hide your blogger comments. So use this comment box wisely.

Threaded Comments For Blogger


Blogger has just announced the much awaited feature "Threaded Comments For Blogger" and you might have already seen it on your Blog if you are using a default Blogger Template. If you are using your own custom Template, then you will have to tweak your template for the threaded comments to appear.
This is how the Threaded Comments will look like (Screen shot taken form the Official Blogger Buzz Blog)
single level thread on blogger

How to get the Threaded Comments ?

1. Make sure that you have enabled Comment Feeds
2. Use the Embedded Comment Form.
3. Now If you are not seeing the Threaded Comments, then it means that you have a customized template.
There are different methods to fix this. But before doing any of those download a backup of your Template.
On the Old UI, you can get a backup at option in Design > Edit HTML > Download Full Template
threaded comments in blogger
If you are using the New UI, then you can find the same at Template > Backup/Restore (Right Side) > Download full Template
threaded comments in blogger

Tweaks to get the Threaded Comments:

1. The simplest method is to reset each of your Widgets to default. Doing this will revert back any customization which you or the template designer has made to the Widgets.
You can reset the widgets by going to the Edit HTML page, and clicking on the link which says “Revert widget templates to default” . If you tried this and lost your Customizations, you can always get them back by re-uploading your Template using the Backup/Restore option
2. If you don’t want to reset the widget templates, then you will have to manually Edit your template.
Find each occurrence of this snippet
<b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
and replace it with
<b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
<b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
<b:else/>
<b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
</b:if>
and you should probably see the threaded view on your blog. If that too doesn’t help leave a comment here and we will try to debug it together :-)
Once you enable the threaded comments, your blog will by default show the 200 oldest comments, and you will see a load more link which will help the reader in viewing the rest of the comments

Redirect one page to another in Blogger

Blogger has launched an Array of Search Engine related features and one of them is the ability to create Custom Redirects. Technically Blogger allows you to create 302 Redirects which are used to specify that the Web Page has temporarily moved to a new location.

What is a redirect ?

A visitor coming to a particular web address is redirected to another web address. This process is called Redirect. Blogger allows you to create Internal Redirects which means that you will be able to redirect the user coming to a particular URL on your blog to another URL on your Blog.

When are Blogger Redirects Useful?

Consider a situation where a page on your Blog was really popular and later you decided to delete it for some reason. Since that page is popular, references to that URL might be there at multiple Blogs/Websites which linked to you. The users coming to that popular URL will now be greeted with a 404 Page not Found Error. You might be loosing some potential readers/subscribers here. One way of resolving this would be to redirect the guy to some other relevant page. This is exactly what Blogger’s Custom Redirects do.
You can also use the Blogger Redirection Tool to create short links. For example you might want to redirect yourblog.blogspot.com/yourname to  your contact page. You can do that easily using the Blogger’s Redirect Tool.

How to add Redirects?

I will describe this using an Example. I had a post about Meta Tags on my Blog. This entry was made some 4 years back  and when Blogger launched the new Search Options, it became irrelevant. So I just deleted that post and made a new entry in my Blog with the new details. Now the visitors coming to that 4 year old URL from various sources would be greeted with a 404 error. I don’t want that to happen but I need that user to be sent to my new Blog Post.
  1. To do a Redirect you should have 2 URLs. The first one is the URL which should be redirected to the target. The target is the second URL where the user should be redirected to.
  2. The second thing that you have to do is to get the relative paths of these URLs.e.g.: The relative path to http://www.bloggerplugins.org/2008/06/meta-tags-for-blogger-blogspot.html is  /2008/06/meta-tags-for-blogger-blogspot.html . You might have already figured out that you should remove your Blog’s home page URL from the URL to get the relative path. You should also make sure that the Relative path starts with a slash (/)
  3. Similarly you have to figure out the relative path to the Target URL. I opted for /2012/03/add-meta-description-tags-to-blogger.html
  4. Once you have got these 2 Relative paths, you can do the Redirect at Settings > Search Preferences > Errors & Redirects > Custom Redirects Add the From and To Fields there and click on the Save link and then on the Save Settings ButtonCustom Redirect Settings Blogger
  5. You can add more Redirects in a similar way.

Demo

Check out the following URLs and see how these get redirected
  1. A Post which is no longer there http://www.bloggerplugins.org/2008/06/meta-tags-for-blogger-blogspot.html

Custom Permalinks for Blogger Posts

A permalink (or permanent link) is a URL that points to a specific blog entry after it has passed from the front page to the archives.Blogger generates this permanent link based on your post title(If the title is in English). For example if your post title is “Hello World”, the blog post’s permalink would be something like http://yourblog.blogspot.com/2012/06/hello-world.html   Till date Blogger never allowed the user to control what the permalink should be but it rather assigned a permalink on it’s own.
This has now changed and Blogger now allows YOU to decide what the permalink of your new post should be. This feature is currently available in Blogger’s Draft Version. So if you would like to check it out, head straight over to http://draft.blogger.com and create a new post. In the post options you will see a permalink option.

If you select the “Automatic URL” (the default option), then Blogger will generate the permalink on it’s own. If you want to specify a custom URL, opt for the “Custom URL” option and you can enter your custom post permalink over there. It will allow you to enter alphabets, hyphens and underscores. It will just ignore underscores. So I just used a combination of hyphens and alphabets to create my post permalink
image

The Final Permalink will be something like
http://yourblogaddress/yyyy/mm/the custom URL that you specified
In my case it came to something like
http://myblog.blogspot.com/yyyy/mm/custom-permanent-link.html
Blogger doesn’t allow you to modify the Permalinks of old posts but you can make use of this new feature on your new posts  There seems to be no limit to the length of this Custom URL at the moment but Blogger might impose some length limit in future.

Meta Tags are HTML elements used to provide structured metadata about a web page. Such tags are placed in the head section of an HTML document and Search Engines might use this data to display the search snippet when they display a page from your blog. Most of the Social Sharing Tools like the Facebook Share or the Google Plus buttons will pick up this meta description to create the snippet which gets shared to the Social Networks.

Detecting an Error Page

Blogger has introduced a new page type called "error_page" and you can detect it using b:if conditional tags.
The following condition checks if a page is an error page or not.
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "error_page"'>
This is an Error Page
</b:if>

Changing the Error Page Title

By default the title of the Blogger Error Page is your Blog Title. If you want to change it to something else, you can Edit your template and change
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
to
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "error_page"'>
<title>Page Not Found</title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
</b:if>

A Good Template Makes Your Site More Successful



Templates are the most important part of a successful website. Every successful site on the web has some sort of overall design structure, which adds to its beauty. A good structural design of headers, footers, navigation, and good content adds a user-friendly base to get around even in complicated sites. Fortunately, you can find a number of pre made templates that will set up a base for your website and all you need to do is enter your personalized text to make a site, which you desire. Many templates can be found free of cost on the internet.

Now, what is a Template? It is a page for your website that needs to be created only once which includes all the link structure information and designs with the content of each page either left blank or right blank. You then can make a copy of your desired template for each page and can fill in the content, rename it. Browsing a site which has different colour pages and has navigation links in different places can be frustrating at times.

So where to look for free templates that will give you a start? One place where you can find good templates easily is right in your web hosting panel. Most of the web hosts today use the common interface software called cPanel. It includes various types of different template options right in the site builders tab. No pre-existing knowledge is needed to work in cpanel as some of the options even have step by step methods on how to create. You just have to follow the steps and a template will be created for you according to your desire.

If you want your own custom template with some specific likings and features then there are many template files directly available for download, which will give you the type of template, which you can edit, and fill in just like any other HTML file.

Both free and pay templates are available on the template sites. You can simply Google "website template" or "free website templates" and you will have a large number of options. Usually the pay ones are designed in a better way, and they have a very less probability that other sites have the same template as that of yours.

Wordpress blog is another great option to build a site, which nowadays is becoming one of the most popular methods of site building. They are very simple to create. It just uses small form in your web-hosting panel and once you have the access to the Wordpress admin dashboard, it has a very easy way to find "theme" area that has hundreds of free blog templates to choose from and these templates are very adaptable to almost any site that you desire for.
