Blog Foreign Language Translation Widgets

Internet is spreading around the world like a strong virus. Many new users are coming from the non-English language countries. Do you want to let them read your blog as well? With developed widgets, it might be not as complicated as you think. Definitely, the translation will be machine type, sometimes funny, sometimes hard to understand, but still it will give your readers ability to understand what you are talking about.

Let’s add free translation services to your blog.

Try Google's translator to translate your blog or website. It has flags to specify the language. When user clicks on the appropriate flag, that page will be automatically converted to the foreign language.

To create a translation box on your page or sidebars, add the following code to template or add sidebars element:

AdSense Revenue Sharing on Multi-author Wordpress Blog

If you have WorPress Blog with multiple contributing authors, and you are running Google AdSense program, you might be looking in the opportunity to split the revenues fairly between the participating members. The present plugin is exactly what you need to program the ads revenue sharing. It is absolutely free, and quite easy to settle up.

AdSense Revenue Sharing is a wordpress plugin which allows you to easy display ads in your posts by using a quicktag and share your adsense impressions with your friends and co-authors.

To dispaly the ads you can either insert anywhere in your post or use the quicktag button.
For configuration go to Options>Revenue Sharing

Usage:

  1. Download, unzip, copy adsense-revenue-sharing directory to your plugin folder.
  2. Go to your wordpress admin panel, click on Plugins and activate Adsense Revenue Sharing.
  3. Go to Options>Revenue Sharing and configure the plugin.
* Top left is a default publisher id. Delete it or modify it with your own.
* Add other publisher codes from your co-authors if available.
* Edit the adsense ad setting (border, color etc); do not fill the ad channel if you added more than one publisher id.
* Select yes or no for the All pages option.
* Click Update AdSense Settings.

How the pluging works:
There are two ways you can use this plugin.
1. You can use the quicktag and insert an ad wherever you want in your post.
2. Second, you can use the All pages setting.
    By choosing number the second option one add will appear at the end of every single post and page.
    By using either one of the above, on the pages that have more than one post like main page or the archive page, only the first post on the page will display one ad. Google only lets you display 3 ads at a time so it’s better to show one ad, than to show 3 ads and 4 to 7 empty spaces.

    Using two or more authors at once, everyone will get equal ad exposure. So if there are 2 authors, each of then will get 50%. For 4 authors the percentage will be 25% for each and so on. Every time the page loads a different author id will be used to display the ad/ads. Remember due to Google only one publisher id is allowed to be used on a page. So if you want to add other ads in your design read the Google TOS first, you will have to disable the plugin or use only one publisher id with it.

    Remember if you have 2 or more publishers, the one with less hits will be displayed.
    EX.: 5 publishers, someone visits the website and the id from no.1 is shown; for the next 4 visits no.1 will not be shown, meaning that the other 4 will be, randomly; now the hit count is equal again and the pub. no.1 will be shown again; every id will be shown once every 5 hits.

    If you want to add another authors publisher id and you already have one or more, either reset the other publishers hit count, or insert and equal number with the current hit count of the existing ones to the newly added. If you don`t, the next thing will happen:
    Ex.: you have 8 publishers and each of them has 1000 hits; you add another one with 0 hits. If you don`t reset the hit count for the other 8 or insert 1000 as the new publishers hit value, ads with his id will show up until he reaches 1000 hits.
    Features:
    • Nice admin area with live ad preview
    • Add as many co-authors as you desire
    • Simple add/edit/delete/reset co-authors
    • Fast insert your ads in you posts and pages
    • “Show all” feature to insert one ad at the end of every post
    Requires: WordPress: 2.3 to 2.5.1

    Installation:
    1. Unzip the downloaded package and upload the AdSense Revenue Sharing folder into your Wordpress plugins folder
    2. Log into your WordPress admin panel
    3. Go to Plugins and “Activate” the plugin. “Revenue Sharing” will now be displayed in your Options section
    4. Set up as many AdSense Account ID`s under Options -> Revenue Sharing
    5. Edit your Ad options under under Options -> Revenue Sharing

For every search request, the search engine, be it Google or Yahoo or MSN, returns a search report, which is a list of web sites. If your web page shows up in the first few positions of the report, instead of the 24 gazillionth position, people are much more likely to click and visit your page. There is no charge for these visitors, you need not buy AdWords or other advertising, but you must get their attention. Piggyback on Google. Use search engines for the heavy lifting of screening and delivering the right users."

    How to Add a Favicon to Blogger

    Favicons on Blogger

    This post will show you how to add a favicon to your Blogger blogs.

    What is a favicon?

    Let me show you.



    A favicon is simply a little mini graphic that appears in the tab box of your browser. Does it help you in regards to SEO? Nope but it does make that ugly Blogger image disappear and gives your blog a little uniqueness.

    Adding a favicon is actually really simple and any technically challenged person can do it in a matter of a few minutes.

    The first thing you will need is a picture to be used and have it uploaded on your computer. Keep the photo under 1MB in size.

    Next go to this site. Free Favicon Generator

    You will see the tool shown in the image below. (click all images to enlarge)



    Hit the browse button and find the photo you want used stored on your computer.



    Once you have selected the desired photo just click the upload button. This will create and store a .ico photo on the server used by the tool. An .ico extension is for windows icon.

    You will now see the following screen.



    Just cut and paste the code in the lower box into your Blogger Template.

    In Blogger;

    Go to Layout - Edit HTML - Expand Widget Template - You will see a version of the screen below.



    Insert code just above the < /head > tag, click Save Template and you are done. Your photo will now show up in the tab on your browser when your site is loaded.

    Cheers

    How to include social bookmarking submission after every post?

    Every blog owner will benefit from sustaining the readers on the blog content. To reach this goal, it should be offered an easy and convenient way to subscribe to the blog through RSS reader and to allow submitting it to the Social Bookmarking sites. Social Bookmarking is indeed a great way to increase the blog exposure, bringing multiple benefits to the owner. Not just the reader preserves the post for further review and follow-up, but also the bookmark itself starts its own independent way of online existence. It will be indexed by Search Engine spider and will allow one more point of access to the blog content. It is just multiplying your blog exposure legally, with no additional efforts, and with no need to post duplicate your content on multiple sites.

    Bloggerplugins offer a nice way to include small buttons after every post, allowing direct submission to the most popular social bookmarking sites with one click, without leaving the blog post.

    To enable this option on your blog you should go through several simple steps of blog template code update:

    1. Enter Blogger template in Layout section.
    2. Choose Edit HTML.
    3. Before doing any code modification, backup the entire template to the safe, easy identifiable location on your Hard Drive. If anything goes wrong, you can easily come back to your original template without loosing your blog structure.
    4. Expand the widget template.
    5. In the template:
    a. Locate



    b. Replace with



    c. Locate string













    Bookmark this post:




    ’StumpleUpon’ ’Ma.gnolia’

    ’DiggIt!’ ’Del.icio.us’ ’Blinklist’ ’Yahoo’ ’Furl’ ’Technorati’ ’Simpy’ ’Spurl’ ’Reddit’ ’Google’








    6. Save the modified template.
    7. If the operation was successful, you should see the line of social bookmarking icons after each post.
