Tip Jar Widget for Blogs makes Money

ScratchBack is a friendly online "tipping system" for bloggers who desire to make a buck from their sidebar. It's a great alternative to a "Paypal Donation" button, because your potential sponsors will be tempted by a worthwhile reward. This reward is a nice fat link back to their site which no blogger can resist.

How it Works:
First you will need to sign up and install their widget code on your site. Once you've implemented the code into your blog you should be able to see a nicely sized widget in your sidebar. This should only take a matter of minutes to get your self up and running. Their system allows you to accept tips from advertisers and in return they will receive image or text links on your site.

Payout Rate:
The current commission structure has been switched from 50% to 90% for the publisher. This is an outrageously wonderful ratio! So you'll make 9 out of every 10 dollars sold on your site (payments made via PayPal).

You might run in to problems when it comes to blending the widget in with your blog. Other than that, they allow you to choose from multiple themes, and some of which are pretty good looking. And the rest of the designs have a bit of a junky look to them, so don't get too excited...

My Experience with ScratchBack:
To be honest, I have only used it on WidgetsForFree™ for one day and I made only 2 dollars. So I will have to rely on my readers to give us some honest feedback on the longer term use of Scratchback. Although, I might give it a shot once the widget is fully customizable and is capable of matching my blog design.

Hide Show DIV Content with Links by using Javascript

The Hide and Show DIV elements for HTML content is a great way to clean up your sidebar. It becomes especially handy for those long blogroll lists or anything that clutters up the blog. Just simply click a link to make all the hidden content magically appear and disappear.

+/- Click Here to Expand and Collapse

How to use it in Your Blog
Step 1: Adding CSS and Javascript
First, add this code below directly above the </head> tag.
<style type="text/css">
.commenthidden {display:none}
.commentshown {display:inline}
<script type="text/Javascript">
function togglecomments (postid) {
var whichpost = document.getElementById(postid);
if (whichpost.className=="commentshown") { whichpost.className="commenthidden"; } else { whichpost.className="commentshown"; }
} </script>

Step 2: Adding the Active Content to be Displayed
Place this code wherever you would like it to appear. Make sure to change the red text to a name that is "unique" to any other name in your template. An example might be "blogroll-dropdown". If you do not give each Hide Show DIV element a unique name the script cannot be used more than once on the same page. The green text is the title of the link that you click on to make the content appear. Replace the code "Expanded Content" with the content you wish to have expand and collapse.
<a aiotitle="click to expand" href="javascript:togglecomments('UniqueName')"
>Link Title</a><br />
<div class="commenthidden" id="UniqueName"
>Expanded Content</div>

Step 3: Sample Code
Here is what my code looks like for the demo above:
<a aiotitle="" href="javascript:togglecomments('hideshowdemo')">+/- Click Here to Expand and Collapse</a>
<div class="commenthidden" id="hideshowdemo"><ul><li><a href="http://howhero.com/">HowHero Tutorials</a></li><li><a href="http://widgetsforfree.blogspot.com/2008/09/translate-blog-widget-using-flags.html">Blog Translation Plugin</a></li><li><a href="http://widgetsforfree.blogspot.com/2008/09/make-money-blog-widget-performancing.html">Make Money Widget</a></li></ul>

How to Change the Favicon in Blogger

Blogger supplies every blog with the standard orange "B" blogger favicon. Having your own unique favicon is a great way to give your blogger template both a distinct and explicit brand. These small 16X16 pixel images will most definitely help your blog stand out from the rest of the blogspot blogs.

What is a Favicon?
A favicon is a small 16X16 image located at the top of your browser in the url bar.

How to Change your Favicon
  1. First go to Layout >Edit HTML in your Blogger Dashboard.
  2. Backup your existing template before making any changes!
  3. Place the code below directly below the </head> tag in your template.
  4. <link href='http://bsaves.com/HowHero/Blogger%20Templates/moonspot/images/favicon.ico' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/vnd.microsoft.icon' /> <link href='http://bsaves.com/HowHero/Blogger%20Templates/moonspot/images/favicon.ico' rel='icon'/>
  5. Now save your template.
  6. Once your template is saved view your blog and make sure to refresh the page and delete your cookies.
Creating your own Favicon
  1. Replace the image URL (2X) with your own 16 pixel by 16 pixel image hosted on the internet.
  2. http://bsaves.com/HowHero/Blogger%20Templates/moonspot/images/favicon.ico
  3. You can host your own favicon blogger image at sites such as ImageShack; PhotoBucket; Flickr; etc.
  4. Check out this Favicon Generator Tool which allows you to upload an image and it will format it for you!


Change the Title Tags in Blogger for More Search Engine Traffic

By default Blogger displays the blog title first, followed by the name of the post. As you might notice this is not good when it comes to SEO. It's important for the name of the post to come before the name of your blog, especially when it comes to google search results. Learn how to make your post title show up first so that you can reel in more traffic from the search engines.

Why Change the Titles?
It's quite important to have the Post Title + Blog Title arranged accordingly because this is how you would want your blog to be displayed on google's search results. This way more people will click on your link when searching google because the post title is more relevant than your post name.
Example Google Search Results:
You are most likely to click on the bottom image when searching google for the keywords "image reflection generator". The reason being is that your mind reads text from left to right. So it makes sense to have the more important title on the left.

How to Change the Titles:
  1. Go to Layout>edit HTML in your Blogger dashboard.
  2. Search for this tag: <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
  3. Replace this tag with the following code:
  4. <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'> <title><data:blog.title/></title> <b:else/> <title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title> </b:if>
  5. Save your template and you should see the results in your web browser as depicted in the images below.
  6. It may take a few days for the changes to show up on the google search results. I guarantee you that you will start receiving more traffic from google once you are re-indexed!

It is a good host
I think it is a good host. Comparing with all the other hosts I tried this is the best. Their support is good. Once I messed up my php code and they fixed it, despite that this is not their job. Sometimes they don't give me a clear answer or they confuse me but I think that has to do with the person who is behind the pc as an individual, not with the whole company. In overall the positives are much more than the negatives. It is a trustful company and I recommend it.

Great Customer Support
I have used Hostgator for about 3 years now.
The very few times I had to get in touch with them - mainly because I was moving sites from one host to another - they were very helpful. So thumbs up for customer support.
New features are implemented to the Control Panel all the time to keep users updated to the latest option in webhosting.
I think is very good value for money.
