How do I change the name of a label in blogger?

How do I change the name of a label?

Let’s say you have a number of posts with the label Label-1 but you’ve decided that you’d rather call it Label-2 instead. You can’t edit the name of a label directly, but there’s a simple workaround to accomplish your goal:

Go to the Posting | Edit Posts tab for your blog.
Click Label-1 in the label list.
Click Select All to select every post with this label.
From the Label Actions… menu, choose Apply label > New Label…
Enter Label-2 as your new label. (If you already have some posts with this label, you can simply add that label, without creating a new one.)
Now all the selected posts should have both labels. From the Label Actions… menu again, select Remove label > Label-1, and you’ve completed the switch.

Note: If you have a large number of posts with this label, they may not all appear on one page. You can show more posts at once using the Posts Per Page menu. If you still can’t show them all at once, then simply repeat the steps above until you’ve changed the labels on all the posts you wanted to affect

Blogger does not have a File Manager

BLOGGER: LINKING TO A PDF OR WORD DOCUMENT IN A POST

To do this in Blogger is a little different than with Typepad because Blogger does not have a File Manager.  Instead, you can use a free service from Google called Google Docs (http://docs.google.com).

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Internet es la calle más transitada del mundo, pero el trafico en cada pagina depende principalmente del posicionamiento en los buscadores como Google. Al arte de colocarse en los primeros lugares de los listados se le conoce como Search Engine Optimization (SEO).


Google mantiene como secreto la mecánica de asignación de lugares, que además cambia de manera continúa. Es un proceso bastante errático, y los que logran colocarse en la primera pagina para la lista de búsqueda de un conjunto de palabras, tenderán a mantenerse ahí hagan lo que hagan, tengan el contenido que tengan, siempre y cuando Google no los vete, por razones también erráticas y misteriosas. Es decir, el SEO es un deporte extremo.

Nube de etiquetas en Blogger

Esta fuera de moda pero lo uso y siempre que hago un cambio se me olvida como se hacia. http://phy3blog.googlepages.com/Beta-Blogger-Label-Cloud.html

1. Agregar los estilos (stylesheet section).

Encontrar la etiqueta de cierre de skin

]]>

y colocar el siguiente código justo antes:

/* Label Cloud Styles ———————————————– */
#labelCloud {text-align:center;font-family:arial,sans-serif;}
#labelCloud .label-cloud li{display:inline;background-image:none !important;padding:0 5px;margin:0;vertical-align:baseline !important;border:0 !important;}
#labelCloud ul{list-style-type:none;margin:0 auto;padding:0;}
#labelCloud a img{border:0;display:inline;margin:0 0 0 3px;padding:0}
#labelCloud a{text-decoration:none}
#labelCloud a:hover{text-decoration:underline}
#labelCloud li a{}
#labelCloud .label-cloud {}
#labelCloud .label-count {padding-left:0.2em;font-size:9px;color:#000}
#labelCloud .label-cloud li:before{content:”” !important}

 

2. Modificar la sección de configuración.

En el encabezado (head) pero fuera de la hoja de estilo (stylesheet). Usar de referencia

]]>

Pero ahora insertar el código siguiente justo después, pero antes de .

 

 

3. Modificar el widget.

Buscar el código del widget de etiquetas, algo similar a

Cambiarlo por el código del widget por el siguiente:

 



 
   

 
 

 



 

Para que funcione el código ya debe haber etiquetas(tags) definidas y por lo menos una debe llevar más de una cuenta. Para más información consultar el articulo original.

Blogging by Email With The Mail-to-Blogger Feature

Guest Author – Diane Cipollo
One of the nice features of BloggerTM is that you can post an entry to your blog just by sending an email message.

The only thing that you need to do in order to use this Mail-to-Blogger feature is to create a secret email address especially for this purpose. It needs to be a secret email address so that only you can post to your blog via email. Once you have done this, emailing a blog entry is as simple as sending any other email message. Log in to your Blogger account and let’s create that secret email address.
From the menu at the top of the page, click on the Settings tab and then click on Email.
BlogSend Address. If you wish to have your blog entry automatically emailed back to you, enter your regular email address in the BlogSend Address box.
Mail-to-Blogger Address. The code for this secret email address is just like the code for any email address. For example, your email address that you use on your website might be made up from your name and the name of your website. You@YourWebSite.comBut for this secret email address, the @YourWebSite.com is replaced with @blogger.com and your name is replaced with the username you created for your Blogger account. username.?????@blogger.comThe missing part of the email address (????) is the only part that you need to add. As mentioned above, you will want this email address to remain a secret. Therefore, you will want to use something that others will not be able to guess. Type your secret code into the box. It must have at least four characters.
You have the choice to publish your emailed blog entry automatically when you send the email message or it can be saved as a draft. If you choose the second, you will need to log in to your account and publish the entry manually. Let’s put a checkmark in the box next to Publish in order to have all emailled entries automatically published to your blog.
Click Save Settings to save the changes to your account.That’s all there is to it. You are now ready to post entries to your blog via email. Just remember a few things when composing the email blog message.
The text in the Subject line of the email message will become the title of your blog entry.
The text in the body of the email message will become the blog entry. If your email program adds extra text or advertisements to the end of your messages, you will not want that to be included in your blog entry. To prevent this, place #end at the end of your blog text.

How to track your Blogger statistics with Google:

  1. Go to Google Analytics to sign up or log in.
  2. When logged in, choose to create a new account and follow the steps.
  3. When you get to “Add Tracking“, open up a new window and log in to your Blogger account.
  4. Go to your blog’s settings and choose “Template” and then “Page Elements“
  5. Have a look at the footer (it has to be the footer!) of the design and choose to “Add a Page Element“.
  6. Find the “HTML/JavaScript” element and then “Add to blog“.
  7. Don’t write anything in the title column.
  8. Copy and paste the code from Google Analytics in the content box and “Save changes”.
  9. Then continue the steps on Google Analytics and you’re done!

Or if you are familiar with coding:

  1. From dashboard – Settings – Template – Edit HTML
  2. Scroll down to the very bottom in the box and locate the tag.
  3. Copy and past the Google code right BEFORE the tag and then save.
  4. To check your stats you just have to click “View Reports”.
  5. If it says “Tracking Unknown” in the status column, you have done something wrong.

Also, you might want to get your blog Google verified (link to tutorial for Blogger) so your blog gets crawled so your chances to show up on search results increases. Here is a tutorial for you WordPress.com users.

Hola mundo

Navegando aleatoriamente me encontré en el cubil de un lobo una referencia a Blog Patrol, un servicio gratuitito de indicadores de trafico, aparentemente asociado con Google.

Decidí agregar el contador a la bitácora de Blogpatrol, pero parece no funcionar. Yahoo también tiene contadores similares y tampoco funcionan. Parece que un problema es que se puede llegar a la página de diferentes formas

De Blog Patrol fui a dar a http://www.blogger.com/home y por error di de alta dos bitácoras nuevas. Las ligas están en la barra lateral. Se ven bien pero el control es limitado y no se pueden hacer respaldos, a menos que te des un doble salto mortal de espaldas. Afortunadamente encontré The Blogger Backup utility, una utilería con interfaz grafica que respalda artículos de Blogger en formato Atom. La última versión esta disponible en la pagina Releases.
