LinkedIn® to acquire SlideShare™

The social networking platform for professionals LinkedIn is all set to acquire the content-sharing site SlideShare for US $119 million in a move designed to boost the content available to its members. The buyout will enable LinkedIn users to utilize SlideShare’s popular presentations feature.

Functionality of SlideShare

SlideShare portal allows its users to publicly or privately upload presentations, which can be embedded on blogs, websites, company intranets, and shared across social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, so the two companies are not new acquaintances.

LinkedIn, which recently launched an iPad to provide more uses for business networkers, will pay US $53.4 million in cash for SlideShare, with the remaining amount being made up with stock.

According to LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, SlideShare is the perfect fit for LinkedIn. “Presentations are one of the main ways in which professionals capture and share their experiences and knowledge, which in turn helps shape their professional identity,” he said.

How to Calculate blog traffic

If you are a blog writer then you know the importance of blog traffic. The revenue from a blog is dependent  on the blog traffic i.e. the number of readers visiting the blog site. Therefore it is essential for you calculate the blog traffic according to the amount of revenue that you would like to generate. Google is the only search engine that provides you a blog rate and also it calculates the popularity and visibility of blogs. Follow the steps given below to calculate the blog traffic.

Step 1:

You can calculate blog traffic through “BackLinks,” which is measured by the number of visitors or readers linking to the blog. The backlinks happen when they visit the blog site or read the blog; it will create more traffic and make a big impact on the popularity of blogs.

Step 2:

You can also calculate blog traffic by counting the number of pages. The number of pages refers to the number of articles published on the website or the number of posted articles. Number of pages is fully based on the content of the blog, so, you will have to post or create as much articles you can.

Step 3:

Last but not the least is the page rank of the blog. A page rank is determined by the number of links, if you have 100 links then you are on rank 3 and you need 10000 links to reach rank 5. The ranking of a page is numbered 1 to 10. So you can see that the number 1 is weakest and the number 10 is stronger.

Step 4:

We also recommend you to install Alexa tool bar on the system to know the blog traffic. It shows the popularity of the website with some fluctuating graphics. As Google is ranked number 1 and Wikipedia is ranked number 7 among the websites in world. But the problem with Alexa toolbar is that it can not be installed in Windows 7 and Vista so you can use Webandrank; it is also same as previous and very easy to use. You can also calculate the blog traffic by calculating the number of RSS feeds or subscribers you have. We also recommend you to use Quantcast tool to calculate the blog traffic, the main feature of the tool is that it shows the statistics of entire websites available not just your own website. You can calculate the traffic and also calculate the blog traffic. So these are the methods we know till now and what we got from internet, these are really helpful in calculation of blog traffic. You can easily compare the blog sites with millions of sites and know the ranking.

Several China Blogs Go Offline

Internet users of China have been reporting about a whole lot of blog shutdowns. In what some of the bloggers say, seems to be the latest effort of the government to further tighten the controls on free expression and exert greater authority over the country’s rapidly growing Internet, which is simultaneously growing more and more complex.

The situation was further aggravated when the sites of many prominent bloggers, and even that of Pu Zhiqiang, who is known for being an outspoken attorney, suddenly became inaccessible.

Yao Yuan is an active blogger who had listed dozens of other blogs written by the free speaking lawyers and writers, and many others hosted by Sohu.com Inc. He said the accounts became inaccessible on, as per the Associated Press reporting, the blogger is quoted referring the closures as an Internet “mass murder.”

The complaints poured down as concerns grew among the Chinese Internet users community about China’s burgeoning microblogging services suffering a crack down, after a slurry of odd goof-ups disrupted the access to many  websites ,some of which were as popular as Twitter this week. Naturally apprehensions and theories behind the probable cause, is growing by the minute.

It’s however still not clear whether Chinese Government, which has the authority to block  foreign websites and also regulate local Internet content, are actually behind the extensive blog closures. Mr. Pu, who is an attorney, well known for being outspoken, said he was not even given any warning before his site stopped working. He said that they should have notified him stating what’s wrong with his blog. According to him it’s unfair to the point of injustice and the practice lacks transparency. Because this isn’t the first time that it happened. Pu concludes that this is because he speaks his mind and the Chinese govt is not very comfortable with truth.

Chinese government officials remained unavailable for comment.

It is true that China’s censorship has grown very strong in the last couple of years. A rapidly increasing number of foreign websites has been promptly blocked, so users within the country cannot access it.

The world also witnessed many government generated campaigns which were probably aimed at clamping down the mobile websites. Officials have also tightened the grip of scrutiny over Web domain names which are registered in China, and they also stepped up the oversight of companies dealing with online media, by few notches. The final summary of all these efforts?? Thousands of websites have closed down, the list of such websites include Fanfou, a   Chinese microblogging service and online video websites.

Much before the latest problems reared its ugly head, blogs and microblogging services which were hosted by the Chinese websites were always getting monitored by the stringent website operators, and the politically sensitive contents were sorted out. In China, access to Twitter and to other foreign services which hosts blog services including popular ones like Google Inc.’s

With this amount of growing restrictions, which came along with Google’s decision of ceasing to cooperate with Chinese censorship regulations this year, have increased acutely the awareness of censorship amidst China’s Internet using milieu which is around 420 million.

Blogetery Users can have their blogs back!

Blogging has been adopted by many people as their hobbies. This is perhaps the modern way of writing your diary on the online world. There was a time when people used to share a lot of information through their diaries. Some kept their diaries secret while others showed their diaries to people. Whatever the situation might be; how would you feel if you get to know that all that you have written on your diary is lost and there seems to be no way that you can recover it back. This is what happens to around 70,000 users using Blogetery.

Blogetery.com came up as a small platform for people to post their blogs and was based in Toronto. The blog was closed abruptly last month when the FBI termed the blogging site to be leading to bomb making tips and listed the names of Americans that were supposed to be targeted in the assassination plans by Al Qaeda. The site was blocked by the hosting company itself names as Burst.net.

Statement-Burst.net:

The company officials have come out with the statement that the officials might hand over all the information that will be found on the server but not the one related to Al-Qaeda and similar stuff that is of any suspicion. This certainly refers to the state where every user of Blogetery is going to get the blog back but there is no chance that the users would see Blogetery back up on the server again. This is because the site has been banned by FBI from further existence.

The internet access to the Blogetery was disconnected the moment FBI officials asked information about the site for their investigation. Another reason of blocking access to the site was because the site did violate the terms of service that Burst.net. The site also did not come up with any response to the abuse claims that have been placed on the administration by the service provider and therefore the account was terminated for once and all. Burst.net is quite serious about the TOS and the abuse has been something that is seriously banned in the TOS that include movie files, child pornography as well as primers on how to blow people up.

Violations by Blogetery:

The company has a policy that the clients of Burst.net need to get rid of the TOS violation within 24 hours of notification from the company and if this does not happen, the customer has to face a risk of fine followed by the suspension of account if even the fine does not help a lot. In case a customer violates a number of conditions, the service is terminated right away.

The Burst.net officials further added that companies like Blogetery has a number of employs to monitor the blogs and they respond in the allocated time but the owner of Blogetery on the other hand said that he does moderate the blogs every day but he missed the message that was on the message board for two days and by that time the service was terminated.
