MyBlogLog is launching this new Communities service to empower authors and readers to operate at the same level. For the first time, everyone who reads a web site or blog can learn about and engage with one another, and in the process take the conversation to a whole new level.
Readers can become friends with other people who read your favorite blogs. See what else they’re reading. Check out their MySpace and Friendster profiles and view their Flickr photostreams. Authors can learn more about their readers individually and as a group. What do they like and what are they ignoring? What are they reading elsewhere on the Web?
Sounds interesting? Well, actually, Mybloglog has been a talk in the blogosphere in the past month or so (although it has been in existence for almost 2 years now) including news of it being acquired by Yahoo! Yet, I just actually signed up for it 2 weeks ago. And so far I had a great use for it.
- For one thing, it provides me information on who visits my site. You might have already seen on the lower-right sidebar the pictures of my visitors. You need to have a MyBloglog account though in order for your picture to appear there.
Another thing, the statistics analytics tool within Mybloglog comes very handy. It provided interesting info about my visitors, like where did they come from (how did they come here), which pages did they view, and what outside links from my site did they click.
So, what did I find interesting from all these stats?
- Most of my visitors came here either through google or yahoo searches for keywords relating to NBA Live 2007, Financial Accounting I Conrado Valix, and A Walk to Remember.
- In the google search for “Don Bosco Makati Mass Schedule“, my site ranked second. I actually remember posting this entry regarding the mass schedule because prior to that, when I was yet in Makati, I kept on googling for it and I found nothing. Now, although I’m here in Qatar, I’m glad it served a purpose for those who wants to attend mass in Don Bosco but not sure of the actual schedule.
- Googling for “Jollibee and Mcdo“, you’ll find deuts.net in number one.”
