Google Blogging Tip # 94: Resolving Google Blog Issues with Post Editor

Q) Google Blog has two Post Edits found under 'Settings'; one is the 'Old' format and the other is 'New' format. Can you tell me how to upload movies from my desktop or computer file folder using the NEW Post Edit Format?

A) Explanation for Problem-
If you have a Google blogspot Blog and it is more than year a old you probably haven't even noticed that Google offers two settings for the Post Edit function (Adding a New Post to your Google Blog). New Blog owners will notice because some templates default to the 'New' format shown as Updated Editor, under Settings, at 'Select Post Editor.' Anyone can update their Blog to the new setting.
The problem with the 'New' Post Editor the functions are more like something you find in a Word Text file such as Microsoft Word. They do have a place to upload pictures, same as the old format. The problem is they have omitted the Icon Function to upload a movie / video. You can still copy and paste online videos such as YouTube, LiveLeak, etc. You can also link to a video post online and the video will function, but if the link is removed or lost the video on your blog is gone.
Google is still developing this New Format, but they have to be aware that the Icon for uploading a Video is not there.
My guess is that they omitted it on purpose. There can be several reasons for this, among them are:
1) Google doesn't want to be involved with someone uploading property that belongs to someone else, even though videos usually embed their owner's name and URL Address so credit s given.
2) Bandwith and data storage are the main reasons I am sure. Videos take up a lot of storage space and with millions of Google Bloggers all over the world, this becomes very costly. Remember your Blog is Free!
3) Google owns YouTube and wants t promote its use.

Solving the Problem-
In the interim, use the old editor (original) Post Edit Format if you upload videos from your computer. You can switch back and forth for now between editor formats.
If your video/movie is an original, then upload it to YouTube or another service similar to YouTube like LiveLeak.
Eventually Google will have to make a determination to either add a video icon for uploads or not, but the new Post Editor Format will become the norm with no option.
For long term, if you do not want to create a YouTube like video, then you may have to use another Blog or Social Network that allows video uploads.
See pictures below for further clarification.

Google Blogging Tip # 92: Adding a Social Community to Your Blog or Website

Q) Is there an alternate for Google Friends Connect that I can add to my Blog or Website?

A) I have added The BlogFrog as an additional social community to one of my Google Blogs. Try this as one option, it's easy to install and use. It seems to work well as a supplement to Google Friends Connect. You can have more than one Social Community Network on a Blog or Website.
Click on the LINK to start the installation of The BlogFrog:
The BlogFrog

When you go to The BlogFrog Website you get a page that looks like this.
Just select 'Sign Up.'



Once you click on 'Sign Up' this pop-up window appears. Here add a valid email address, your name (no spaces) - I used 'theblogguy', then create a password (write in down, you will need it later on).
Then just click 'Done.'


Next - you get a new pop-up window that looks like this.
At this Step, you ADD whatever Blog or Website URL Address you want BlogFrog to be installed on.
If you have Twitter and Facebook you can add them as well.
I chose only to use my Google blogspot address: http://blogsiamfollowing.blogspot.com/


Another new pop-up window appears....
When you get here, your almost done setting up BlogFrog. Just continue to the install.


At this step, you may want to use the default codes, you can change these later.
There are two ways to install BlogFrog, I chose the one on the left. I would copy and paste both codes into a word text file so you can opt out of one and replace it with another later if you would like.





Now Copy and Paste the code into your Blog or Website.
For Google Blogs, Follow these steps:
1. Sign-in to your Google Blog.
2. Go to 'Layout.'
3. Select 'Add a Gadget.'
4. Select 'HTML / JavaScript.'
5. Copy and Paste the BlogFrog Code.
6. Save, view your Blog. Then go back to Gadgets and move your BlogFrog Community to the desired location on your Blog sidebar.

For Websites, Copy and Paste the JavaScript Code from BlogFrog and place it where you want your new community to appear on your web page. This goes between the BODY and /BODY.



After you install BlogFrog, and move it to the desired location on your Blog sidebar or within your Website, this is how it will look. You can then invite others to join your community or they cam add you to theirs.


Here is an example of of how it should look on a Google Blog when you are done.
Look at the sidebar, at the bottom of my Blog, Blogs I am Following.

Blogs I am Following

Google Blogging Tip # 85: Utilizing Website Adult Content Warning Pop-up Screen

Q) Can you provide me an Adult Content Warning Label that will pop-up before loading my Web Page that has Adult Content?

A) Yes-
Click on the LINK:
to get The Blog Guy's JavaScript Code for your Website or Web Pages:

HTML Codes for Adult Content Warning

This JavaScript loads before the page.
You have to then type in your age (older than 18) to access your site.
If someone types 14 instead of 24 it will redirect them to a safe site of non adult content.
If they type any age older than 18, it will allow them access.
Please do NOT alter the JavaScript Code.

Note: This JavaScript works on all Browsers.

Have a great weekend.

The Blog Guy Talking

Just some simple reminders that will help everyone:

First, Blogs are a form of social networking. Many people use them in an attempt to sell a product or service. The best way to do this is get a .com domain name and a website. The Blog should only be used to augment your Website. For reasons covered in my previous Blog Tips such as Google Blogging Tip # 75: Ten (10) Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Myths and Facts for Blogs, Part 1.

Next, If you Follow one of my many Blogs, I in turn follow yours. As a courtesy I add all your Blogs listed under your Profile called 'My Blogs.' These are added to The Blog Guy's Blog Roll by Category and Links on : Blogs Follow Me, the Blog. As a follower they are also added to the Blog Roll List (which is in alphabetical order) on : Blogs I am Following, the Blog. If they are Non English Blogs they are posted on : Blogs I an Following, the Blog and on : Non English Blogs, the Blog. If they are Adult Content Blogs, they are posted on : A List of Blogs for Adults Only, the Blog.

Next, Following People is a way to get your Blog Noticed and when you reciprocate then this adds to both Bloggers Ratings with Google. Note for this to work, both must follow each other.

Next, Please report any down Links or Blogs removed by Google, or Blogs that change status such as requiring someone to sign-in to view the Blog. These will be removed from my LINKS and Blog Roll List. Just send me an email at:
alternate4craigslist@yahoo.com
-or-
Simply leave me a comment on the latest post and I will handle it.

Next, If you don't want anyone Following your Blog, then remove FOLLOWERS by simply -
Sign-in to your Blog.
Go to View Blog.
Look for Followers.
Look for the * just below Followers.
Click on the *
You will get a pop-up window.
Simply click on REMOVE.

Next, If you want to STOP someone from Following your Blog, then follow these steps-
Sign-in to your Blog.
You should be at the Dashboard.
Go to the bottom of the page, click on 'Manage.'
Find the Blog you want to remove.
Click on 'Settings.'
Click on 'Stop Following.'
Save / Done.
Wait for the Blog to recycle and come back to your LIST of Blogs you are following.
Then proceed to the next Blog if there are more than one or just go to the top of the page and click on 'Dashboard.'

Next, if you were Following one of my Blogs and no longer want your blog listed then send me an email. This email MUST include the name of the Blog and complete URL Address. It must also state which Blog it is on. Please include how it is listed (by name/description) if it appears on anyone of of The Blog Guy's Blog Roll List and/or in the LINKS. Without this I just don't have the time to search them out. As for Followers you may have noticed Google has been experiencing intermittent problems with Followers. So I may appear on your Blog but you may not appear on mine. If you remove or block a Blog it should catch up to the blogger following you in a couple of days.

Finally, as stated previously, I am going through all my Blogs and checking my Followers. This will take some time. But if you are listed in my Links or Blog Rolls and are no longer Following me, then you will be removed. Sorry about that, but as stated, Followers really only work when each party participates and reciprocates.

Thanks for understanding.
Have a good week.
regards,
The Blog Guy

Google Blogging Tip # 81: Removing The Navbar From Your Google Blog

Q) - How do I get rid of that annoying Bar at the Top of my Google Blog?

A) - You have to change your Blog's HTML Code to get rid of the Google Navigation (Nav) Bar. It is quite simple to do, but make very sure you follow the instructions carefully.
Email Inquiries: 31

Removing The Navbar From Your Google Blog


Steps:
1) Sign-in to your Google Blog Account.
2) Select 'Layout.'
3) Select 'Edit HTML.'
4) This takes you to a new page. Near the top you will see, Backup / Restore Template.
Select 'Download Full Template.' This will copy your HTML Code to your dashboard. Keep this if something happens, you will need this to restore all your original settings.
5) Page down till you find /HEAD.
6) Click on the LINK to The Blog Guy's Web Page. Copy and Paste the code directly above /HEAD.
7) Go to the bottom of the page. Save Template.
8) Preview.
9) If correct, close out 'Preview.'
10) Go to your main Blog page. Refresh the page.
11) The Google Top Bar should be gone.

Copy and Paste the code as instructed on The Blog Guy's Website Link:
Click on the LINK-
Removing the Bar on Top of Google Blogs

I did this on four of my own Blogs with 3 different templates.
Below is some pictures for further clarification and help.

Here on Google Blog Awards, you can see the Bar before the HTML Changes.

Making the changes explained above, and backing up my old files in case an error occurs.




Here are the changes on my Google Blog Awards Blog. Notice after following the steps the BAR is gone.

Here I made the change on a different type of Google template on Blogs By Google. You can see the bar before the changes and the Blog after the changes without the bar.


Here I made the change on my Blog - Alternate for Craigslist.

Finally you can see my main Blog - Blogs Follow Me - before the change with the bar; and after the change without the bar.



Please Support My Efforts, Follow This Blog.
Right now I am following over 500 Blogs but only 210 are following me. Help me out....

Google Blogging Tip # 76: Using Meta Tags on Blogs to Improve Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

This Blogging TIP addresses Meta Tags for Blogs in relation to Search Engine Optimization commonly referred to as SEO.

Meta Tags for Blogs are generally fixed and usually cannot be adjusted or amended. This particular fix addresses Google blogspot Blogs but will work on most any Blog except Twitter.

There are many websites that talk about how to change or use Meta Tags within Google Blogs. For the most part none of these work because Google has gone through many updates and controls most of the changes needed. Meta Tags are a key factor in Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Read More on this at Google Blogging Tip # 75.

How to use this work around fix for Meta Tags on Blogs:
Steps-
1) Sign-in to your Blog.
2) On your most recent post, copy the paste the code, Preferred Method, on The Blog Guy's website link, found below. It goes just under the last entry of the post (text, picture, video).
3) Or, Use the option (Acceptable Method), if you prefer this method. For Google Blogs either choose the Header under setting, under basic, description - paste here; or use the add a gadget under layout and choose HTML/JavaScript. Either or just copy and paste the code.
Note: The first Option, the preferred method is best but you'll have to decide for your Blog. The preferred method requires you do it every time you make a NEW Post. The Option method is a one time copy and paste.
There are some samples on The Blog Guy's Website Link that will help you decide which method is best for you.
4) In choosing either method (Code) remember to CHANGE the items in RED to your Blog Name and URL Address.
