How to submit blogger blog sitemap to google webmasters tools

How to submit blogger sitemap to google webmasters tool
To get more search traffic on your blog, it is necessary to submit your blog's sitemap to google webmasters tool. But to submit blogger blog sitemap, we need an xml file of the sitemap and have to upload it in the root directory of the domain. But for blogger, it is not possible to upload a custom sitemap.xml file with the domain because blogger doesn't offer to host external files and that's why you are limited to link external files with your root domain.

Recommended : How to create sitemap page for blogger blog.

But no need to worry, we have already an xml file with our blogger blog's domain which may work as a sitemap, atom.xml. But this sitemap can submit only 26 recent posts. Then what to do...??
Well, using a small tweak, you can use the same atom.xml file to submit all your blog posts into google webmasters tool. Let's see how.

Submit Blogger Sitemap To Google Webmasters Tool

1. A sitemap can contain maximum of 500 posts. So, if you have number of posts less than 500, then you have to submit only one sitemap to index your posts. But if you have posts more than 500, then you have to submit more than one sitemaps in google webmasters tool. Here is how you can get your blogger blog's sitmap link:
http://www.pctricksguru.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
From the above url, replace the red color text with your own blogger blog url and copy the whole url. You can use this url as a sitemap.
2. Now, login to your google webmasters tools account and click your added site's url.

click the blog url

3. Now, from the left sidebar, click Crawl > Sitemaps option.

crawl > Sitemaps

4. Now, click "Add/Test Sitemap" button.

add a sitemap in google webmasters tools

5. Now we are at the last step. You will see sitemap submission box. Just add the following line in the box and click "Submit Sitemap" button:
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500

add url and click submit sitemap

6. That's it. Now you can see that your blogger blog's sitemap is submitted in google webmasters tool and after indexing, you will see the status of your indexed pages.

blogger blog sitemap submitted

Note: If your blog has more than 500 posts, then after submitting this sitemap, submit another sitemap using the following link:
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=501&max-results=500
In the same way, keep adding the sitemaps according to the number of posts in your blog.

How To Create Sitemap Page For Blogger Blogs

How To Create Sitemap Page For Blogger Blogs
Sitemap submission is a good way to tell search engines about your site contents without pinging them regularly. For a normal website, you can generate sitemaps using free sitemap generator tools. But for a blogger blog, the default sitemap file (atom.xml file) contains only 26 most recent blog posts. So, if you submit it in the webmasters tool, your all posts don't get indexed.
In this post, I'll tell you how to create a sitemap page for blogger. Actually, it's not a sitemap, but a list of posts filed under the particular labels, but for search engines, it works as a sitemap. You can't submit it to webmasters tool. So, let's see how to create your sitemap page for blogger:
1. Login to your blogger account and from the dashboard, go to PAGES option.

from dashboard, click PAGES

2. Now click "New Page" button to create a new page.

click NEW PAGE

3. Now Page Editor will open. Just click "HTML" button to start editing in html mode.

click HTML

4. Now copy the following code and paste in the HTML editor. Then give the page name "Sitemap" and then click "Publish" button to publish your page.
Code for blogger sitemap:
<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">
<script src="https://pctricksguru.googlecode.com/files/sitemap.js"></script><script src="http://www.ashutoshthehacker.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=9999&amp;alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=loadtoc"></script> </div>

Note : Change the red color text in the above code with your own site url.

paste the code and publish the page

5. That's it. Now your sitemap page is ready. Open and view it.

How can you say that you are a Pro Blogger

How can you say that you are a Pro Blogger
"Pro Blogger", you might have came across this word if you are in blogging field. You have seen that every newbie starts a blog and start calling himself a "Pro Blogger". This is disgusting. Actually 80% of bloggers don't know the real definition of Pro Blogger. So, I decided to write this article to explain what actually the term Pro Blogger means.

The definition of Pro Blogger or Professional Blogger is "Any blogger who totally depends on blogging for his income", according to Google. Or you may say that a Pro Blogger is the one who does blogging on a full time basis and earns his livings through it. But, this term is not as simple as it seems to be. Here are some points for a pro blogger:

1. You treat your work with respect and care

Don't treat your blog as a place where you work for time-pass. Some bloggers say that they do blogging because blogging is their hobby or blogging is fun for them. For a professional blogger, blogging is not a fun, they treat is seriously. If you say that blogging is your passion or blogging is a fun for you, then you are spoiling your image as a blogger. Give your blog full respect and do hard work for it and be honest for your blog. Some bloggers say that they do blogging to make their blog popular and when it becomes popular, they will sell it to earn some money. This thought is also a silly thought. A Pro Blogger treats his blog as a very important thing for him which he can't sell to anyone just for some money.

2. Think well before leaving comments on other blogs

When you visit other blogs, you find a nice amount of comments, and 90% of them are made to build backlinks and for the purpose of promotion. You will never find comments of Pro Bloggers anywhere because Pro Bloggers avoid spamming (now you can understand why you never find my comments in other blogs, except some high quality blogs). Pro bloggers leave very less comments on old blogs with high quality content, and their comments are valuable and meaningful for admin as well as the readers. They comment for genuine reasons and for any suggestions which are really important, not for building backlinks or for the purpose of spamming.

3. See your every social media activity as your digital footprint

If you see a Pro Blogger's social media profile, you find that he keeps his connections engaged with him. He shares his life events, sometimes he makes jokes and post some funny things to make his followers laugh, sometimes he talks about some social issues and asks for the opinion of others etc. You will not find that he floods his profiles with the links from his blog because he knows that his social media profile is his virtual social life. He lives his life in his own ways and his social media profiles reflect his real life also. But most of the bloggers keep sharing their blog links in their social media profiles which damages their blogger image. I'm not saying that you share every moment of your life, such as "drinking coffee in a hotel", "going for lunch", "going to sleep" etc. These are silly things. Update some meaningful things which reflect that you are a professional blogger or a professional person, such as "Made some corrections in my blog design, waiting for some feedback", "Attended the seminar of XXXXX, that was great being their. Learnt a lot of things", "Going to XXXXX university, feeling excited to meet the youth there" etc. These type of social media updates create a good impression in the mind of your followers and they will feel attached with your life because these updates keep the audience involved with your activity.

4. You've received press releases by national and international media, invited to brand hosted events

A pro bloggers doesn't boast on him. He earns the faith and respect by his honest and high quality work. And this can be proved by his real life activities. If you have not received press releases (in national and international media) or invited to brand a hosted event, then you can't say yourself a Pro Blogger (that's why I never write that I'm a pro blogger, because I've conducted only small seminars in some colleges locally but never branded any hosted event or did any event on national and international level). Some bloggers publish paid articles about them in local newspaper or get them featured in local TV channels, but it doesn't mean that they are Pro Bloggers. Pro bloggers are featured at national and international level and they are invited by top and reputed media with respect, not against any money.

5. You are making your livings from your blog

If you are making your livings from your blog, then you may call you are a Pro Blogger (but all the qualities mentioned above are also required). Some people just create a free blog, publish 2 or 3 posts and start calling them "A Pro Blogger", even they don't earn a single penny. This makes me laugh, but it's not their fault. Since the past 2 years, I've seen a high bounce in the amount of teens who are are creating blogs and calling them a Pro Blogger. They have imparted a wrong image of Pro Bloggers. That's why most of the college going students start blogging and feel proud calling them Pro Bloggers. Even some new bloggers start publishing interviews of these bloggers with a label of "Pro Blogger Interview", how silly...!! That is the reason why any newbie calls himself a "Pro Blogger" because they don't understand the actual means of the term "Pro Blogger".

6. You've denied to some ads or to review some items because they are not fit for the audience

This is also a great quality of a Pro Blogger. Some companies want their products reviewed by bloggers and published in their blogs. Some advertisers offer some money to show some ads which are useless for audience (I also get so many "download button" ads to put in my blog in post body, but I simply deny them coz they are totally useless and misleading). Any normal blogger will accept the proposal because they get money for that, but for a pro blogger, audience are more important and they can't put any content which is not suitable for his audience.

7. You spend your time in interacting with your community also

Pro bloggers don't have much time to interact with other people, but from their busy schedule they manage some time to interact with his audience. They reply to the comments on their blogs, they respond to the emails they've received. But this doesn't mean that they reply to every comment, for example, if you've commented "Hi", then don't expect "Hello" from their side. Even your comment may be deleted by them. Pro Bloggers allow meaningful and useful comments on their blogs and respond to them only.

These were few points to clear what actually a Pro Blogger is. Finally, I'd like to tell you the top lessons to learn at blog world:
  1. From the 1st day, take yourself seriously and treat your blog like a business. Take care of the views of your audience also.
  2. It takes more than 3 years to achive the qualities of a Pro Blogger. So don't misguide other people calling youself a Pro Blogger. You may use the word "Hobby Blogger" or just "Blogger".
  3. Have your vision in place before you start out. It makes it easy what you are going to write.
  4. Set your goals before entering into the blogsphere, and plan about every action you take.
  5. Know that sitting in front of your laptop continuously for hours increases the risk of heart disease! (I've gone through this circumstance and my condition got very critical. Due to working continuously on computer the whole day, a wound developed in my lungs and it started bleeding badly.

How to add facebook popup like box widget in blogger

How to add facebook popup like box widget in blogger
Facebook popup like box is a handy widget which increases your facebook page likes and helps in building large number of audience. Using facebook popup like box is a good practice but you must keep it in mind that your facebook popup like box must not appear every time when a visitor opens any page. So you must use cookies to set the appearance of facebook popup like box at a fixed time interval. Now let us see how to add this popup like box in your blogger blog.
  • Login to your blogger account and go to Template > Edit HTML
  • Now, find the code </head> and just before </head>, copy and paste the following code:
<script src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.1/jquery.min.js'>
</script>
<script src='http://yourjavascript.com/69231961363/jquery-colorbox-min.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script type='text/javascript'> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ if (document.cookie.indexOf(&#39;visited=true&#39;) == -1) { var setDays = 1000*60*60*24*5; var expires = new Date((new Date()).valueOf() + setDays); document.cookie = &quot;visited=true;expires=&quot; + expires.toUTCString(); $.colorbox({width:&quot;400px&quot;, height:&quot;430px&quot;, inline:true, href:&quot;#facebook-popup&quot;}); }});
</script>

Note: In the above code, is the number of days after which the popup box will appear again to the visitor. You may change it with any value between 1 to 7.
  • Now search for the code </b:skin> and just before </b:skin> copy and paste the following CSS code:
/* Colorbox Core Style: The following CSS is consistent between example themes and should not be altered. */ #colorbox, #cboxOverlay, #cboxWrapper { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; z-index: 9999; overflow: hidden; } #cboxOverlay { position: fixed; width: 100%; height: 100%; } #cboxMiddleLeft, #cboxBottomLeft { clear: left; } #cboxContent { position: relative; } #cboxLoadedContent { overflow: auto; -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch; } #cboxTitle { margin: 0; } #cboxLoadingOverlay, #cboxLoadingGraphic { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } #cboxPrevious, #cboxNext, #cboxClose, #cboxSlideshow { cursor: pointer; } .cboxPhoto { float: left; margin: auto; border: 0; display: block; max-width: none; -ms-interpolation-mode: bicubic; } .cboxIframe { width: 100%; height: 100%; display: block; border: 0; } #colorbox, #cboxContent, #cboxLoadedContent { box-sizing: content-box; -moz-box-sizing: content-box; -webkit-box-sizing: content-box; } /* User Style: Change the following styles to modify the appearance of Colorbox. They are ordered and tabbed in a way that represents the nesting of the generated HTML. */ #cboxOverlay { background: #000; } #colorbox { outline: 0; } #cboxContent { margin-top: 20px; background: #000; } .cboxIframe { background: #fff; } #cboxError { padding: 50px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } #cboxLoadedContent { border: 5px solid #123D60; background: #fff; box-shadow: 3px 3px 3px #fff; } #cboxTitle { position: absolute; top: -20px; left: 0; color: #ccc; } #cboxCurrent { position: absolute; top: -20px; right: 0px; color: #ccc; } #cboxLoadingGraphic { background: url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-5mbD_VbTJC8/U0JAlXCMJeI/AAAAAAAAA68/kTBpdJyX1QY/s1600/loading.gif) no-repeat center center; } /* these elements are buttons, and may need to have additional styles reset to avoid unwanted base styles */ #cboxPrevious, #cboxNext, #cboxSlideshow, #cboxClose { border: 0; padding: 0; margin: 0; overflow: visible; width: auto; background: none; } /* avoid outlines on :active (mouseclick), but preserve outlines on :focus (tabbed navigating) */ #cboxPrevious:active, #cboxNext:active, #cboxSlideshow:active, #cboxClose:active { outline: none; } #cboxSlideshow { position: absolute; top: -20px; right: 90px; color: #fff; } #cboxPrevious { position: absolute; top: 50%; left: 5px; margin-top: -32px; background: url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1T4W326W_0I/U0JA5rXKhjI/AAAAAAAAA7E/qCiSNdX2EPM/s1600/controls.png) no-repeat top left; width: 28px; height: 65px; text-indent: -9999px; } #cboxPrevious:hover { background-position: bottom left; } #cboxNext { position: absolute; top: 50%; right: 5px; margin-top: -32px; background: url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1T4W326W_0I/U0JA5rXKhjI/AAAAAAAAA7E/qCiSNdX2EPM/s1600/controls.png) no-repeat top right; width: 28px; height: 65px; text-indent: -9999px; } #cboxNext:hover { background-position: bottom right; } #cboxClose { position: absolute; top: 5px; right: 5px; display: block; background: url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3GXM9dvsyfI/U0JBeC_OOkI/AAAAAAAAA7M/gcfCa5WNCSs/s1600/controls1.png) no-repeat top center; width: 38px; height: 19px; text-indent: -9999px; } #cboxClose:hover { background-position: bottom center; }
  • Now, let's move towards the last step. Find </body> in your template code and just before </body>, copy and paste the following code:
<div style='display:none'>
<div id='facebook-popup' style='background:#fff;position:scroll;z-index:99999;'>
<div style='text-align:center;padding-top:15px'>
<h3 style='font-family: &apos;Source Sans Pro&apos;, Sans Serif; Font-size: 18px; font-weight: 300px; '>Receive All Free Updates Via Facebook.</h3>
<iframe allowtransparency='true' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' src="http://djmculinary.com/?big=www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpctricksguru&amp;width=342&amp;height=300&amp;show_faces=true&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;stream=false&amp;show_border=false&amp;header=false&amp;appId=' style='border:none; overflow:hidden; width:342px; height:300px;'/>
</div>
</div>
</div>
  • Now, replace pctricksguru with your own facebook page username and save your template. Now, you can see your facebook page popup box when you open your blog.
Alternate method to add popup like box in blogger: 
If you are lazy in doing coding work, then you can follow the alternate method. Just go to your blogger Layout section and add a new widget. Now copy and paste the following code:

<style type='text/css'>
#pctricksguru {position:fixed !important;position:absolute;top:200px;left:40%;margin:0px 0px 0px -182px;width:300px;height:auto;padding:16px;background:#FEFEFE;font:normal Dosis, Georgia, Serif;color:#111;border:2px solid #333;-webkit-box-shadow:0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);-moz-box-shadow:0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);box-shadow:0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);-webkit-border-radius:10px;-moz-border-radius:10px;border-radius:10px;}#pctricksguru a.bsclose {position:absolute;top:-10px;right:-10px;background:#fff;font:bold 16px Arial, Sans-Serif;text-decoration:none;line-height:22px;width:22px;text-align:center;color:#000000;border:2px solid #333;-webkit-box-shadow:0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);-moz-box-shadow:0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);box-shadow:0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);-webkit-border-radius:22px;-moz-border-radius:22px;border-radius:25px;cursor:pointer;}</style>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.1/jquery.min.js">
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
$(window).bind("load", function() {// Animate Top$('#pctricksguru').animate({top:"50px"}, 1000);$('a.bsclose').click(function() {$(this).parent().fadeOut();return false;});});</script>

Why Some Bloggers Show Fake Income Reports In Their Blogs

Why Some Bloggers Show Fake Income Reports In Their Blogs
You might have seen that some bloggers show their income reports in their blogs to attract visitors to their blog. They say that they earn thousands of dollars just in one week. After looking at those income reports, you might be thinking that those bloggers are really PRO BLOGGERS and have great knowledge of blogging. I've noticed that in India, 1 out of 4 bloggers says that he is a pro blogger and shows his income reports to make the visitors impressed. But a PRO BLOGGER nevers needs to show his income reports in his blog. He earns a handsome amount from his blog and pays income tax to the government silently.Then why these stupid self called "PRO BLOGGERS" need to show fake screenshots of income report? Let me explain you the reason behind it.

1. To gain attention of internet users

These self called "Pro Bloggers" make fake screenshots of adsense income and other online income reports (you can also do it by using webpage editing javascript and photoshop. AdSense fake screenshot generators are also available online) to gain the attention of internet users. If any person visits their blogs and sees their income reports, he thinks that they are making millions using their blogs and he subscribes that blog and visits that blog regularly to know the secrets of online money making.

2. To increse social media followers

These bloggers try to drive traffic from social media from their followers. So, they show unbelievable amount of their earnings in social media, such as in facebook groups and pages and when any social media user looks at his posts, he immediately follows the blogger either by adding him in friends list or by liking his page. These bloggers purchase fake twitter and facebook followers to make advertisers fool that they have a large social media network. To promote their blogs, they create fake social media accounts also.

3. To do fraud with newbies by selling their useless services:

These self called "Pro Bloggers" try to trap the newbies by showing fake income reports. They say that they will make a newbie earn thousands of dollars within a week or a month if they use their SEO services or blogging coaching. Any new blogger gets impressed by them and pays them money to earn lots of money by getting the services of those spammer bloggers and finally gets nothing.
Actually these spammers work in a team of other spammers who have their own blogs. All of them publish fake income reports saying that after taking the services of XYZ blogger, they are now making lots of money. These spammers publish the blog url of other spammers saying that 'this blogger is my customer and I made him able to earn four figure or even more income within one week or month'.
The innocent newbie blogger believes them and day dreams of being a millionaire and falls into the trap of those spammers. A spammer creates so many fake profiles and create blogs with the name of those fake profiles and try to impress other people saying that those all (fake profiles) are his friends or customers who are making lots of money after joining his blogging coaching and using his SEO services.

4. To get the attention of advertisers

These spammers buy backlinks from high PR sites and buy backlink packages from different companies to get better alexa rankings and to increase page rank of their blogs. Then they purchase traffic from different companies who drive massive traffic to their sites using bots and social media promotion. Then they show that their alexa rankings and traffic is very good to generate revenue from advertisements. These fake reports attract advertisers and they give advertising contracts to these fake bloggers. In this way, they recover their spent amount for building traffic and backlinks.

5. To publicize themselves and their blogs:

When other bloggers visit the spammers' blogs, they get inspired from them and publish the interview of those spammers in their blogs. These interviews increase their publicity and drives traffic to their blogs which gives them more people to do fraud with. Generally, spammers use their fake profiles to promote them and publish their interviews on their self made fake blogs. You will never see the interview of such types of spammers on a well reputed site because the administrators of well reputed and genuine sites know the above points I mentioned in this article.
These things make the spammers popular in their locality and then they try to get the attention of local media to get featured in local newspaper of TV channel to get more audience.

Conclusion

If you know about SEO and Blogging, then it's a thing of common sense that blogging can't make you a millionaire over a night. If taking services or coaching from anyone could make you rich, then there was no need of doing any job or business. People could become rich by taking the coaching of those silly self called Pro Bloggers. Blogging is not a shortcut to make money and making huge amount of money online is not an easy task. It requires knowledge, patience and loyalty.
According to my personal experience, the power of these spammers is their huge network in social media. Actually most of the spammers have good knowledge of the easiest HTML also. They say that you should purchase templates from them because their templates are highly SEO friendly. But do you know what they do? They download templates from different sites (there are so many sites distributing free blogger and wordpress templates), change the credits and background colors and images of the template and sell it to their customers saying that they designed that template which is highly SEO friendly. If you send your own design and tell them to design the template for you, then they can't, sometimes they may heir other web designers to design the template for you, but in most of the cases they try to confuse you that the design you sent can't be good for SEO, the template they are offering is search engine optimized so you must use that template.
At the last, I'd like to say you that blogging can be a good source of making money online, but it is not like the way those spammers represent it. Blogging can't give you millions within a week if you are using it in a genuine way. The only thing behind success in blogging is HARD WORK with a little addition of LUCK.
So friends, don't be excited by seeing fake income reports, work hard on your blog and be loyal with your work. Get inspiration from great bloggers and learn from them instead of running behind the spammers.

Wishing you a happy and successful blogging...

Boost Your Site's Load Speed With Lazy Image Load Script

Boost Your Site's Load Speed With Lazy Image Load Script
Load speed is a very important factor to keep your visitors stay on your website. Researches say that if any website takes it too long to load then visitors leave the site without caring about looking at it. We can increase website load speed by deleting useless codes and hosting the codes on external hosts. You can increase site load speed by optimizing your site's images also. Today, I'll tell you how to boost your website's load speed with lazy image load script.
Using this script, you can force your webpages to show images only on the visible area of the page, i.e. images will load only in that area which appears on the screen and when you scroll down the page, other images will load. Generally when we open a website or blog, all the images are loaded at the same time, but if we use this script, all the images will not load at once, which increases the site's loading speed.

Let's see how to add this script in your blog:

> Login to your blogger account.
> Now go to Template > Edit HTML
> Now search for </head> and just above it, copy and paste the following code:

<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[
(function(a){a.fn.lazyload=function(b){var c={threshold:0,failurelimit:0,event:"scroll",effect:"show",container:window};if(b){a.extend(c,b)}var d=this;if("scroll"==c.event){a(c.container).bind("scroll",function(b){var e=0;d.each(function(){if(a.abovethetop(this,c)||a.leftofbegin(this,c)){}else if(!a.belowthefold(this,c)&&!a.rightoffold(this,c)){a(this).trigger("appear")}else{if(e++>c.failurelimit){return false}}});var f=a.grep(d,function(a){return!a.loaded});d=a(f)})}this.each(function(){var b=this;if(undefined==a(b).attr("original")){a(b).attr("original",a(b).attr("src"))}if("scroll"!=c.event||undefined==a(b).attr("src")||c.placeholder==a(b).attr("src")||a.abovethetop(b,c)||a.leftofbegin(b,c)||a.belowthefold(b,c)||a.rightoffold(b,c)){if(c.placeholder){a(b).attr("src",c.placeholder)}else{a(b).removeAttr("src")}b.loaded=false}else{b.loaded=true}a(b).one("appear",function(){if(!this.loaded){a("<img />").bind("load",function(){a(b).hide().attr("src",a(b).attr("original"))[c.effect](c.effectspeed);b.loaded=true}).attr("src",a(b).attr("original"))}});if("scroll"!=c.event){a(b).bind(c.event,function(c){if(!b.loaded){a(b).trigger("appear")}})}});a(c.container).trigger(c.event);return this};a.belowthefold=function(b,c){if(c.container===undefined||c.container===window){var d=a(window).height()+a(window).scrollTop()}else{var d=a(c.container).offset().top+a(c.container).height()}return d<=a(b).offset().top-c.threshold};a.rightoffold=function(b,c){if(c.container===undefined||c.container===window){var d=a(window).width()+a(window).scrollLeft()}else{var d=a(c.container).offset().left+a(c.container).width()}return d<=a(b).offset().left-c.threshold};a.abovethetop=function(b,c){if(c.container===undefined||c.container===window){var d=a(window).scrollTop()}else{var d=a(c.container).offset().top}return d>=a(b).offset().top+c.threshold+a(b).height()};a.leftofbegin=function(b,c){if(c.container===undefined||c.container===window){var d=a(window).scrollLeft()}else{var d=a(c.container).offset().left}return d>=a(b).offset().left+c.threshold+a(b).width()};a.extend(a.expr[":"],{"below-the-fold":"$.belowthefold(a, {threshold : 0, container: window})","above-the-fold":"!$.belowthefold(a, {threshold : 0, container: window})","right-of-fold":"$.rightoffold(a, {threshold : 0, container: window})","left-of-fold":"!$.rightoffold(a, {threshold : 0, container: window})"})})(jQuery);$(function(){$("img").lazyload({placeholder:"http://i22.servimg.com/u/f22/15/42/72/40/grey10.gif",effect:"fadeIn",threshold:"-50"})})//]]></script>

> Now save your template.
That's it we have to do. Now if you open your blog, you will see that images are loading slowly when they come in the visible area.

Add Blogger Contact Form In Any Page

Add Blogger Contact Form In Any Page
Contact Form is always very important for any blog or a website. Most of the websites use php contact forms or google docs forms. Recently, blogger announced its official contact form and it works fine but it can be used as a widget in the blog. So many bloggers are still thinking that they can't add blogger's official contact form in any page or post. So I'm creating this article to show you how to customize and add blogger's official contact form in any page or post.

Follow the instructions:

1. First of all, add a blogger's official contact form in your blog. See How To Add Blogger Contact Form.
2. Now, let's hide it. To hide it, go to blogger template editor and just before the </head> tag, add the following code:
<style>#ContactForm1{ display:none!important;}</style>
3. Now create a new page by going to Dashboard > Pages > Create A New Blank Page.
4. Now in html editing mode, copy and paste the following code:
<style>.contact-form-name, .contact-form-email, .contact-form-email-message, .contact-form-subject, .contact-form-country {max-width: 300px;width: 100%;font-weight:bold;
}
.contact-form-name {display: inline-block;background: #FFF;background-color: #FFF;color: #A1A1A1;font-family: Arial,sans-serif;font-size: 13px;font-weight:bold;height: 30px;margin: 0;margin-top: 10px;margin-left: 10px;padding: 15px 15px 15px 5px;vertical-align: top;border: 1px solid #ddd;box-sizing: border-box;

.contact-form-subject {display: inline-block;background: #FFF;background-color: #FFF;color: #A1A1A1;font-family: Arial,sans-serif;font-size: 13px;font-weight:bold;height: 30px;margin: 0;margin-top: 20px;margin-left: 10px;padding: 15px 15px 15px 5px;vertical-align: top;border: 1px solid #ddd;box-sizing: border-box;

}
.contact-form-button:hover {text-decoration: none!important;border: none!important;
}
