Best way to boost your blog popularity is by converting your visitors into readers. Nothing can beat loyalty of repeat visitors because they actually like what you have to say. But how do you accomplish such a difficult task?
Many people don’t necessary arrive to your blog on your front page and might have landed on page that interested them but wasn’t the best example of your work. How do you draw people deeper into your blog and present them with your best work. Well, if they commented – you have an excellent option!
I’m a Stats Junkie! I track a multitude of the variables on my blog and use them to determine effectiveness of my blog posts, my readership and structure my Blog Design and Marketing Strategies based on what I learn. I have to admit that sometime I think I spend too much time on these tasks but hey - it beats the Guesswork!
Since multiple stats packages present us with a slightly different information I tend to use each one for a very specific tasks and performance evaluation.

Later in 2005, Microsoft developed Really Simple Syndication in relation to its Simple Sharing Extensions.
Today, RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’, and it has the following 7 existing formats or versions: 0.90, 0.91, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94, 1.0, 2.0 and lets not forget the Atom format created to address all the short comings and incompatibilities of the multiple RSS versions.
