On Traffic, widgets and link

I have been busy updating the sidebar of this blog. As you will notice, I have now a widget for recent visitors which I grabbed from myBlogLog. Also, I added a PayPerPost Direct link in case someone might be interested to have me write stuff on them. And I recently inserted a facebook badge allowing everyone to see and add me on their facebook account. These collective efforts was done on a purpose.

Blog Traffic.

I know, i know. I'm still not there. The effort I have done above will not directly increase the stats that I have right now. (which is now at the level of 23 and all coming from 3 IP addresses: my home and office IP, and my Girlfriend's IP :p).

Of course, not all efforts will be visibly seen on this blog. Some efforts involved signing on community blogs, social network sites and commenting on other bloggers blog. Which i believed are all effective ways to increase site traffic.

There are still lot of efforts to do. And I'm still learning more ways to reach my goal. I will be glad to read your comments.


Google's 'Freemium' - First Click Free

Thursday, October 23, 2008
Have you ever experienced searching the web, clicking a desired result and end up in a page that prompts you to login? It's like your being stopped to pay a toll saying 'Give us money first or else go away'. It's quite annoying right?

Good thing Google unveils a new web search service called First Click Free (FCF). This will allow users to see the full page content of a subscription-only page after clicking Google's search result (thus your first click is free). Actually, this service has long been implemented in Google News and now being ported in web search.

FCF can benefit web user as well as publishers and content managers. As Google explains:

First Click Free has two main goals:

- To include highly relevant content in Google's search index. This provides a better experience for Google users who may not have known that content existed.

- To provide a promotion and discovery opportunity for publishers with restricted content.

First Click Free is designed to protect your content while allowing you to include it Google's search index. To implement First Click Free, you must allow all users who find your page through Google search to see the full text of the document that the user found in Google's search results and that Google's crawler found on the web without requiring them to register or subscribe to see that content. The user's first click to your content is free and does not require logging in. You may, however, block the user with a login or payment or registration request when he tries to click away from that page to another section of your content site

I've searched more on FCF and found a relatively good commentary by Philipp Lenssen. He discussed the potential things that this new service could cause. Its good to pay his blog a visit.

Tuesday StumbleUpon: AjaxLoad

Tuesday, October 21, 2008
I am searching for an Ajax component last Monday when I stumbled on this Web 2.0 site.

AjaxLoad is an online Ajax loading image generator. It provides downloadable UpdateProgress gif for free. You can also set your desired background and foreground color. The images are still limited since it is still in Beta.

As for me, I consider this as a promising tool for Web Developers. Hope there will be more gif choices available on their next release.

Also, I think now is the best time for us to be more financially organized and to keep a financial record is a first step towards achieving it. Having a personal finance software to keep track of financial transaction is a good way to have better financial health.

MMEX's current stable release is in version with download size of 2.38MB. Another good thing about this product is that it runs on different platform below:
