Adding prettySociable - Professional Blogger Tutorial (Part 2)

Pretty SociableI was impressed when I first saw this jQuery plugin run in (but now I think Mashable is not using this anymore) and I never thought that I can implement this on my blogger a.k.a. blogspot blog until I read Divya Sai post on prettySociable make sharing a lot more fun, by dragging and dropping objects. You can see this working in one of my blogs, click here. Try dragging some of the post images and you'll see icons where you can share the post. I'm sure this plugin can attract your readers to share your blog posts.

How to Increase Blog Loading Speed

Well since the issue of Page Speed becoming a PR factor started, I have been keeping an eye on my blog's loading speed. I think my blog's just load on a average speed, not so slow and not so fast, so I'm still doing some stuff to try to make it load more faster. PR is still a PR that is very important in the Blogosphere, so doing this might benefit your blog's Page Ranking in the near future and most importantly it will benefit your visitors and readers.

Will Page Speed become A PR Factor?

SpeedometerRecently I got an email from webpronews about Google might consider page speed a ranking factor in 2010. We all know how Google wants to make the web faster for all of us and it's a great idea to reward those websites or blogs that optimized their page loading time. Who wouldn't want that to happen? It would benefit both the visitors/readers and webmasters/bloggers. For me it's another ball game that I would like to pay attention and play. A video from webpronews, reporter Mike Mcdonald interviewed Google's Matt Cutt's regarding the issue.

Unusual Way to Get Free Blog Traffic

TrafficAn idea pop-up into my mind just a month ago on how I can get a free blog traffic, I kinda think that it's unusual because I have read a lot of articles on how to get free traffic but I never saw this one. So put it to a test to see if it's going to work. Since it requires effort and time, I allotted most of my time to get this job done. And after a few weeks I was surprised with the result of it because it's a major success for me.

A Real Drop Shadow Effect for Images

ShadowLast year I posted a tutorial on how to add borders in your post images which kinda gives a drop shadow effect. I used that technique before but now I'm using the real deal. As you can see, my images have a real drop shadow effect. Adding this effect plus your blog's cool design can attract potential readers. It's the new CSS3 feature

The only problem with this is that not all browsers support it, like Internet Explorer 6,7,8 and Opera. Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari as far as I know supports the drop shadow effect.

Page Rank 3 for 3 short months

Page Rank ThermometerWhat way to start off year 2010 with a PR "PageRank" 3. Yeah, you heard me right PR3. I was so surprised when I found out that my blog has a PR of 3 this early, I really thought that it would take me years to have at least PR of 2. I never knew that having a PR of 3 can be attainable within 3 short months.

Some may have a doubt or disbelief, others even questioned Google's Page Ranking System but I don't blame those people. I believe that only few people had done something like this. I'm just lucky enough to be one of them.
