AdSense's "Ads by Google" Link Replaced By "AdChoices"


ads by google old look


This is how they look now,

Adchoices new icon label


Adsense Ads replaced with adchoices


Personal view:

I personally think that the arrow icon will encourage users to visit the Ads more because of our natural habit of following the arrow direction. I know this would sound funny but couldn't they use a better icon? :p The Icon for me personally looks dull and bore in appearance. What do you think about this latest change? Do you think this can increase our average CTR? I would love to hear from you. Peace.

7 Advantages Of Using Facebook Comments Box

3- Receive New Blog Comments Notification on Facebook

Whenever a comment is left on any of your posts you will be notified via Facebook Notification system. Same is true when a comment is liked or responded by another visitor or reader. The readers are also notified of replies made on their comments at your blog.


4- Threaded Comments

Your readers no more need to feel neglected because you no more need to reply them all at once. Rather you can pay them proper attention by replying to each reader under their comments. This way a comment thread is set up which further makes the conversation more useful and fun!

4- Comment With Profiles - No Anonymous Comments

You can now happily turn off the "Anonymous" comment option by going to Blogger > Settings > Comments . The users as I said can use any of their ID to leave a comment so you really no need to worry about who is commenting!

5- No Spam Comments Possible Now

You will get more relevant comments with no spam as users will have to use their personal IDs to leave a comment and spam robots are surely incapable of doing that.

6- Delete Comments Easily Without Leaving Window

In Blogger comment form to delete a comment you need to click the trash icon and the you are taken to a separate window where you select the option of deleting the comment permanently. But With FB comment box you Delete comments just the way you delete comments on your FB profile. With a click of a mouse!

7- All links are by default no follow

The links left on your comment box are by default tagged as nofollow and according to the FB developers search engine robots can not crawl the content of your comments as the plugin is enclosed inside a iframe where robots can not enter to crawl data. This way the quality of your content in the eyes of search engines will increase because the robots will have to crawl only the body of your posts and not the distracting comments.

What do you think now?

I shared the advantages above and tried to put forward the best advantages this widget could offer to bloggers including me. I just hope this widget could help you further increase your blog traffic and enjoy blogging even more. Have fun. :)

Play Flash SWF Files In Blogger - My First Flash Movie!

PLAY-FLASH-BLOGGERPlaying a flash file in any blog or website is really easy but unfortunately we still see tutorials where a long complex code is shared whilst you can just add few lines of code to let things play. I previously shared a list of [a href="" target="_blank"]10 high quality flash clocks[/a] all embedded in our blog post and they work just fine. I will share the same code here.[a name='more'][/a] But first I guess you will enjoy a sample flash movie that I created for my [a href="" target="_blank"]School class mates[/a] back in the year 2009, when I had just started learning blogging. The Following movie is surely approved for appropriate audiences! =p



To Play the flash file in full screen kindly [a href="" target="_blank"]click here[/a]


Adding Flash files in Blogger Blogs

To Add a flash file in blogger posts, sidebars, footers etc. just use the following simple embedding code,

<object><param name="movie" value="Add_Flash_File_Direct_Link_Here"><embed src="Add_Flash_File_Direct_Link_Here" width="300" height="300" wmode="transparent"> </embed></object>


Make these changes:

  • Replace Add_Flash_File_Direct_Link_Here with the Direct URL of your flash file. You can upload the flash file at [a href="" target="_blank"]Mydatanest[/a] and then you can get the link from there.
  • Make sure you keep the width and height equal to the original resolution of the flash file for better quality. By default the width and height parameters are each set to 300px in the above code.

Add the code to your posts, publish it and view your blog to see it live in action. Have Fun! :>

facebook-comments-boxIn 2009 [a href="" target="_blank"]Facebook developers[/a] introduced their best social plugin called "Facebook Comments Box". This plugin can be embedded in any website or blog and visitors can use their IDs of Facebook, Yahoo, AOL or Hotmail to leave a comment at your site. This plugin did show a lot of problems when it was embedded in Blogger Blogs in initial days of its development but now thanks to our fellow friend Max from [a href="" target="_blank"]Allblogtools[/a] this plugin has been finally bloggerized to work just perfect with any Blogger hosted blogs. I have edited Max's coding in some areas and have mentioned some more interesting options that will help you use the Facebook comments box in parallel to your old [a href="" target="_blank"]Blogger Comment form[/a] so that you may loose no previous comments and provide users with multiple options of commenting from different platforms.

Why Should You Use "Windows 7" in 2011?

WINDOWS-7-USE-REASONS1As time goes by, the world is developing with a rapid pace and it has become significant for us to cope up with the running world. In this growing pace the use of computer is obviously inevitable and have become clinical.So one would always go for better and more composed computer system, thus the importance of using windows 7 can be depicted with this regard. Therefore for the betterment we have to have something good and convenient for the users and something which saves our time, as its the battle of time,so people behind Microsoft being familiar of this have launched there new operating system i.e Windows7 to meet the needs of their users in 2011. There could be many reasons that why we would go for windows 7, why cant we rely on XP or Vista? This question will have to be answered with many reasons. But first, I would discuss some of my personal experience as follows:

1- Brilliant Search Functionality

Being a user itself,what I have found good about windows 7 is that it has a very good search bar.when you have your hard disk filled,you cant remember the location of your particular file which you have saved,you would go for the search option,which could make your work easier,it doesn't take long to search the required file in windows 7 as what hasn't been the case with the former operating systems,when you go for a file search in XP,it takes so long that you end up looking for that particular file by going through the drives yourself and that cartoon which flashes in XP also annoys you like anything. It saves ample of time doing a search on windows 7

2-  Support High Graphics Games

Nowadays,games with high graphics are coming which need a good operating system to be run on,so in windows 7,I can play heavy games and it doesn't effect much to the speed of the computer having installed such games.

3- Takes less time to start and shutdown

It has a good restart, log off and shutdown time,XP takes long where as it takes lesser time.

4- User Friendly Interface

It has a good interface and have good default programs like word pad,calculator,windows media player with a great new skins and etc. It is more user-friendly,it has a front row option which compiles all your music,photos and relevant stuffs in a single format and anyone can access to it easily

5- Last Media and Software

The new internet explorer 7 is also good and almost all the latest version websites are supported by this browser. All Latest software are available like Microsoft office, windows media player11, graphic cards, drivers etc.

6- Strong Virus Combat Support

The system is not easily infected with virus. You can run your system without installing massive antivirus Software and this saves a lot of hard disk capacity. Its firewall is efficient enough to say no to VIRUSES.

7- Efficient in running multiple programs

Windows 7 has key performance improvements to take up less memory and run background services only when you need them. It's designed to run your programs faster and to sleep, resume, and reconnect to wireless networks quicker. And with 64-bit support, you can take full advantage of the latest in powerful 64-bit PCs

8- Good Network Support Options

Connecting to wireless networks on your laptop is easy and formerly a bit of a hassle now takes just a couple of clicks. Choose from the list of available networks in the task bar, click one, and then connect. Once you've connected to a network, Windows will remember it so you can connect again later automatically.

I hope this little post would help you guys in believing that why windows 7 has become important to use now. We can work something out with the old operating systems but everyone would go for the better option and it is clearly addressed which one holds better these days. I have tried to bring that information and knowledge to you people that tells you the basic differences of windows 7 over other OS rather than being too technical. I hope you guys find it worth reading.

Compress Images and JavaScript To Speed Up Site Load Time Part 2

Image Compression

My next step is to compress my images. Save all of your blog’s images into one folder, and go to [a href="" target="_blank"]Smush it.[/a] This is an image compressing tool made by Yahoo. Upload all of your images, where they will be compressed, and download them in a zipped file. You can then re-upload them to your blog. Both techniques shown so far will decrease your page size and loading time by at least 30%.



JavaScript Compression


Your next step is to compress all of your JavaScript. Please go to [a href="" target="_blank"]JS Compress[/a]. Upload your JavaScript, have it compressed, and re-upload it to your webpage.

No Edit HTML Option In New Blogger Dashboard 2011?


You can find an interesting trick of accessing the Edit HTML Page here -> [a href="" target="_blank"]Access Edit HTML[/a]

So its highly advised to Blogger active users to kindly use the Tested version of Blogger i.e [a href="" target="_blank"][/a] and not the Beta version. You can still design and edit your layouts with complete rights to edit the CSS, HTML. You can still add JavaScript and cool jQuery tricks to your blog and of course you can continue playing around codes as you always loved to do. I am as curious as you in finding updates related to this new question. I will keep you updated with all latest developments. Till then keep blogging and keep using our only beloved blogging platform, The Google Blogger! :>

How To Find the "Edit HTML" Option in New Blogger Dashboard?

      4. Copy that blog ID number and save it in a notpad

      5. Then paste your BLOG ID just after this link,


  The link will now look something like this (containing your BlogID number at the end)


      6.  Finally paste your link in the browser and hit enter. You have now successfully accessed the EDIT HTML PAGE. Enjoy! :>



Design a Professional Looking "About Us" Page


3.  Now you need to add some rows/paragraphs where you can talk about your services, goals etc. I would advise that you create at most two-three rows and keep them short in length. Use passive voice and avoid using "I am this and that" rather use a tone that may sound as if someone else is describing the author.  Once you have written down the paragraphs then start enclosing each paragraph one by one between this code,

<div style="border: #686868 5px solid; padding: 10px; -moz-border-radius: 15px; -webkit-border-radius: 15px">
  <div style="text-align: justify"><img style="display: inline; float: right" align="right" src="ADD IMAGE LINK HERE" width="128" height="128" /></div>

  <div style="text-align: justify"><font color="#666666">



<div style="text-align: justify">&#160;</div>



Do it for each paragraph. For example if you have written three paragraphs then enclose them in the codes like this,

<div style="border: #686868 5px solid; padding: 10px; -moz-border-radius: 15px; -webkit-border-radius: 15px">
  <div style="text-align: justify"><img style="display: inline; float: right" align="right" src="ADD IMAGE LINK HERE" width="128" height="128" /></div>

  <div style="text-align: justify"><font color="#666666">



<div style="text-align: justify">&#160;</div>


<div style="border: #686868 5px solid; padding: 10px; -moz-border-radius: 15px; -webkit-border-radius: 15px">
  <div style="text-align: justify"><img style="display: inline; float: right" align="right" src="ADD IMAGE LINK HERE" width="128" height="128" /></div>

  <div style="text-align: justify"><font color="#666666">



<div style="text-align: justify">&#160;</div>


<div style="border: #686868 5px solid; padding: 10px; -moz-border-radius: 15px; -webkit-border-radius: 15px">
  <div style="text-align: justify"><img style="display: inline; float: right" align="right" src="ADD IMAGE LINK HERE" width="128" height="128" /></div>

  <div style="text-align: justify"><font color="#666666">



<div style="text-align: justify">&#160;</div>


Make these changes:

  • To change the border color of the paragraph edit #686868  with your preferred color choice. Use our [a href="" target="_blank"]color generator tool[/a].
  • Replace ADD IMAGE LINK HERE with the URL of your image. Try to you use a small image 128px by 128px in size.
  • To adjust the image size edit width="128" and height="128"

    4.    Finally save your page and publish it. Visit your About Us page to see it in action! :>


Hide Widgets

Now we need to hide all widgets that appear below post titles and at the bottom of posts. These widgets are normally the social bookmarking icons, AdSense code and related post widget which appears on all your posts. To hide them kindly follow these steps,

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Backup your template
  3. Check the "Expand Widget Templates" box
  4. Search for ,


and just above it enclose all your widget codes between the code below,

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != "ADD YOUR ABOUT US PAGE URL HERE"'>




Add all your widget codes between these two bolded lines. Replace ADD YOUR ABOUT US PAGE URL HERE with your About Us page link.

    5. Do the same for all the widget codes below <data:post.body>

    6. Finally save your template and visit your blog to see the page loading in seconds with a neat and clean look.

    5.   Next search for </head>

    6.  and just above it paste the following code,

    7.  Save your template and you are done!
