Yeah, this month earlier there was an official confirmation from Yahoo! that they have acquired the blog community legend. So I think my question was obvious, do they have any intension to have the Blog Stats for Research purpose? Who knows, but I was never worried to signup for Google Analytics, so why do I now?
All that has changed with MyBlogLog, the Orlando-based company that has quickly built a thriving social network of blog publishers and readers. You’ve probably heard the rumors and I’m here to confirm that Yahoo! has agreed to acquire the assets of MyBlogLog, and aside from loving the product and the team, we think this move complements Yahoo’s social media and community initiatives perfectly. – says Chad Dickerson
Danny Sullivan at SearchEngineLand has also pointing about a similar kind of question about the Security of Adding the MyBlogLog code inside.
First, putting the code up means that MyBlogLog will understand everything that’s going on within your web site. So if you don’t want them knowing your top pages, visitors and so on, don’t use the code. It’s not required to have a community. But without it, it’s harder to build that community. You certainly can’t display the faces of your members without it. – Danny Sullivan
As I mentioned earlier, I think it is okay to signup for those who are really not cared about open source the stats to MyBlogLog. It is proving me some traffic to virtueseo.com/seo-blog – here you can find virtueseo.com/seo-blog community over there, and also you can find my profile too. There I found more and more familiar faces from SEO community and the overall feeling was “wow”!
See a sample screenshot below and don’t you feel like getting your face also get displayed over here, as I Do?
A word from the Author:
Since I am not in the pro version I can’t have the live stats reports – but for that I have other known tools, so I am not really worried about that. At MyBlogLog, I am not much worried about the reports they provide, but to see how the Community reactions over www.Kichus.in and I can have individual action tracking, sheesh…
