Blogging, Weblog Add-Ons

Asides from having one of the simplest looking websites on the net, Yougler is a newly launched service which aims to provide bloggers the ability to establish a professional looking profile along with other perks. Using Yougler which is pronounced (Yoo-Guh-Ler) users can create profiles that bloggers can link to for spam free contact information. One of the long standing problems that bloggers have faced is the way in which end user’s can communicate with the blog author. Usually, this would consist of typing out your email address as so ( blabla at blabla.com). Replacing @ with at was a very inexpensive way of defeating the spam bots which would scrape the content of websites looking for printed email addresses but this method creates a few caveats. The first, user’s need to manually type out your email address which is far less convenient than clicking a link. The second, the […]

SezWho: Commenter Reputation Plugin

SezWho Offers Portable Reputations : Web Worker has a thorough writeup on the SezWho service which allows commenter reputation and rating across the web. Installation is really simple with their WordPress Plugin (also for MT). Web Worker seemed cautious about professing the success or viability of this service. However Read/WriteWeb, who is already using SezWho, was a lot more upbeat about the prospects. WeblogToolsCollection on the other hand, has been bitten hard by third party services and their scalability issues and I am going to shy away from this one for now. Sadly, it is quite hard to determine the dependability of a remotely hosted service from just their SLA and their promises, especially if their financial model is shaky.

More stats from whos.amung.us: I really liked the service when it was first started and the recent improvements just add a little more icing to the cake. Now you can view the number of simultaneous users on your site or blog in graph format for the day, month or year. There is also a neat little search feature to modify your past stats for a certain date range. You can now tweak the widget for your blog by choosing the color of the background and the text in the widget to suit the layout of your site and there are options for the size of the widget. I chose the TechCrunch stats because they are much more interesting to monitor but as you can tell, I installed the widget on this blog on the first day I found it and unlike other tools, it is still displayed on this blog.

Cool Scripts, Weblog Add-Ons

Web 2.0 free button maker: After the success of the Stripe Generator and the Ajax Loading Gif Generator, here is a Web 2.0 Button Maker that lets you upload your own icon and build gel buttons for your site or blog. I agree with Mashable that the script is not very Web 2.0 ish itself since you have to “Apply Changes” every time you make a change but it is fun nonetheless. I tried building a PNG with the flame logo of weblogtoolscollection.com but I was spending so much time on it, I just gave up and made something simple. It turns out that we like “generators” on WeblogToolsCollection.com!

Easy RSS Syndication: Easily include syndicated content from other blogs with this tool (look for RSSInclude). I was tipped off from a bunch of referrals coming from this link. The HTML generated is table based and could have been a simple list to make styling easier.

Technorati Competitor: Gnoos

Technorati Competitor: Gnoos Australian Blog Search Engine Gnoos is providing a similar search engine (as Technorati) but with an Aussie influence. It is still much faster than Technorati and seems to produce sparse but spam free results. Not nearly as many features as in Technorati, but that might be a benefit rather than a disadvantage in maintaining a fast response. Also, in related news, TechCrunch is reporting that Ask/Bloglines is offering a limited blog search and they are conducting their news searches from within 7000 pre-approved blogs and news sites. This blog is not one of those being searched.

Blog Analytics with Blogbeat: Another high profile, coolness added blog tracking and analysis tool. The review is pretty involved and the tool looks to be quite good. Bloggers that are unhappy with their present tracking tools (which I am not) can give this one a try. There is only so much information from your blog viewers that can be remotely useful.
