Today’s post is dedicated to all those people using Its a great service which offers free web hosting. I wonder how much bandwidth blogger would provide!

Before trying any of the below mentioned tips/tricks, backup your theme — Goto “Layout” -> “Edit HTML” and click on “Download Full Template”..
This article is only for education purpose and I am not an expert in coding blogger templates, so try at your own risk. By changing the default behavior of the blogger blogs, you may be violating their policy. So we make it clear that, this article is only for education/learning purpose.

1. To insert Meta tags:-

<meta NAME='description' expr:content='data:blog.pageTitle + &quot;,Put in your common description tags here &quot;'/>

in between <head> </head> tags.

In the above code expr:content= ‘data:blog.pageTitle’ gets replaced by the title of your current page. So when combined with the common description tags, the description tag becomes unique for each page. Also do not forget to replace “Put in your common description tags here” with some description of your website(this will be common for all pages of your website.)

2. Read more option (show only post Excerpt in the home page):-

Login to your account and click on the “Layout” tab. Then select “Edit HTML”. Check ” Expand Widget Templates”.
Now search for </b:skin> and paste the below code between </b:skin> and </head>

<!-- Style to implement "Read more.." link in all the posts (Start) -->
    <b :if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
        span.fullpost {display:inline;}
    <b :else/>
        span.fullpost {display:none;}
<!-- Style to implement "Read more.." link in all the posts (End) -->

Now search for <data:post.body/> in the template HTML and paste the following piece of code after <data:post.body/>

<!-- Code to show "Read more.." Link (Begin) -->
          <b :if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
                <a expr:href='data:post.url' 
text-decoration:none' >
Read more..
          <!-- Code to show "Read more.." Link (End) -->

Save it. That’s all about coding part of the theme. To show only post excerpts on the homepage, you need to insert <span class="fullpost"> post excerpt.Remaining article will be shown after clicking on "Read more.." link.</span> . Now your articles and blog will look more professional.

3. Hide the Blogger navbar:-
Add this line #navbar-iframe {display: none !important;} before /* Variable definitions


Paste below code inbetween <style> </style> , before </head> .

<!--Code to remove blogger navbar-->
#b-navbar {
<!--End of code to remove blogger navbar-->

4. Post articles from email:-
Goto “Settings”, click on “Email” option. And set the email ID, and start posting articles from your email ID.
Its interesting to note that, you can post upto 10MB of images directly from your email.

5. Bulk image uploader(for firefox users only):-
Use “Drag Drop Uploader” FireFox Addon and upload as many images as you want.

6. Change the default favicon and put your favicon, great for branding purpose:-
Upload your favicon(an image of 16 x 16 pixels or 32 x 32 pixels with .png, .gif, or .ico extension. Use either 8-bit or 24-bit colours.)
Now paste below code between <head> </head> tags.

<link href='Uploaded favicons URL' rel='icon' type='image/gif'/>
<link href='Uploaded favicons URL' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/gif'/>

Book mark this article, as there is more to come, as we investigate and play with Blogger.
We thought of making this a serious post, but it would annoy visitors as they need to navigate to different pages to get what they want. So we decided to keep all things at one place. Hope this article is of some use for some of you. If this article helps you in anyway, then please share this story with as many people as possible.Thanks

Yahoo Buzz! is now open to everyone.

Yahoo-buzz-logo-tmAre you banned from Digg? Are you an active person in sites like Digg, stumble ?

If you said yes, then you have a Happy news. As said in the title of this article, Yahoo Buzz! is now open to everyone. Previously it was a closed Beta.

Now without wasting much of your time..I will tell some of the points and you can hurry to grab the Buzz Button.

1. Its an Digg like site of Yahoo!.

2. Believed to be the most powerful (more than Digg — Tested).

3. As almost all net users have an YahooMail Id, many people can Vote for your story on Yahoo Buzz!, than on Digg, stumble etc.

4. Yahoo Buzz! site is looking clean and easier to use than any other Social Bookmarking site.

5. The featured article will be displayed on “” and not just on “”.

6. Its now open for everyone.

Now Go Grab the Buzz button. And Buzz my stories also, if you find anything interesting in!

orelse here is a small work around for wordpress blogs…

<script type="text/javascript">
  yahooBuzzArticleHeadline = "<?php the_title(); ?>";
  yahooBuzzArticleSummary = "<?php the_excerpt() ?>";
  yahooBuzzArticleType = "text";
  yahooBuzzArticleId = window.location.href;
<script type="text/javascript"

This code will get the Title, URL, and the excerpt of your article automatically to the Yahoo Buzz site, instead of manually inserting all these details.

And change “text-votes” to “square” or “small-votes” or “medium-votes” or “large-votes” or “logo” or “text” or “small” or “medium” or “large” to change the button type.

If you are using Blogspot, then remove these yahooBuzzArticleHeadline = “< ?php the_title(); ?>“; yahooBuzzArticleSummary = “< ?php the_excerpt() ?>“; two lines, and use the code. I think it will work. I have not tested it on Blogspot, but still hope it works fine. If anyone of you have tried this, then please confirm us, by leaving a comment below this article.

Create Mobile version of your blog in minutes

We are happy to tell that will now be accessible on your wap/internet enabled mobile phones.

When we were observing visitors data in google-analytics, we found that many people were trying to access our blog using mobile browsers. So we decided to bring a mobile version of and as usual, we started searching in Google and finally we found a plugin called WP Mobile Edition 2.1.

NOTE: It works only with WordPress.

This plugin will automatically detect the mobile phone browser and will render the pages of your blog to the phone. The blog will be looking more simple, with just the post titles and links, arranged neatly. So there will be no delay in loading of pages.
And the important thing is, you can monetize your mobile version blog using AdSense for Mobile Content.

And for those who are using some other blog platform(This hack even works with wordpress):

Here is a quick hack…
Just use[feed_address]

replacing [feed_address] by your blogs exact feed address and put a link in your blog. This would enable your blog visitors to view your mobile version on their desktop or in their mobile phones. But the problem is, you will not be able to monetize it using AdSense for Mobile.

There are many companies providing free mobile websites, but they always come with URL attached with it, and you need to pay them to get the URL of your choice.

From now, you can always find a link to mobile version of this blog at the footer.

Please support us, by visiting our blog from your mobile phones, when you are away from your Personal Computers.
