Royal Pingdom Says Our Load Times Suck, And So Do Those Of Most Other Big Blogs(November 5, 2008 TechCrunch)
As blogs grow and try to cram more and more stuff on their homepage, load times are becoming a bigger problem. According to Royal Pingdom , 74 of the top 100 blogs have home pages crammed with so much stuff (more than 500 kilobytes) that anyone without broadband might be frustrated by the load times.
However, it is understood that it is not unpopular because the load times of top page is long.
The blog grows up and various images and article might be packed in top page.
If the blog doesn’t grow up, nobody might pack information and the image like it.
First of all, it is important that the blog goes out popular, and grow up.
Afterwards, it only has to adjust the image and the script.
Hitwise Ranks Election Traffic To News Sites(November 5, 2008 TechCrunch)
Hitwise has released a ranking of some of the top news sites, measured by traffic on Election Day. CNN.com came out on top, seeing a 146 percent spike over the day before. But MSNBC.com, Fox News, and the Drudge report all saw nice bumps as well. ABCNews.com had a record day, with a 113 percent jump in traffic over the day before. And CNN’s Political Ticker blog by itself saw a 122 percent jump. (Twitter traffic rose 43 percent and traffic to Twitter Election 2008 rose 1,100 percent).
However, I hear that there were news sites where traffic fell oppositely according to the article.
It is fatal as the news site.
It is necessary to change greatly as a news site.
Blogger And Podcaster Media Network Looks To Turn Long Tail Blogging Into A Full-Time Job(October 28, 2008 TechCrunch)
Larry Genkin, the founder and editor of Blogger and Podcaster Magazine , is looking to help the long tail of bloggers turn their hobby into a lucrative job. He has started the Blogger and Podcaster Media Network , a consortium of bloggers and related companies looking to help bloggers of all sizes effectively monetize their sites without having to worry about having a relatively small audience.
I hear that Blogger and Podcaster Media Network (BPMN) devise the method that small blog obtain the income.
It introduces the method from among the article.
- BPMN helps give the blog more exposure with the major media enterprise.
- Small blogs gathered, it becomes one huge advertising media, and the advertisement income is obtained.
- When the blogger brings the network a new member, accolade money can be gotten.
Even if the management of this network can cooperate difficultly perhaps with the media enterprise at a while, the blogger will not obtain the income so much.
However, I think that the blog network somewhere will grip the key to one media in the future.
Former AOL Exec Raises Funding For Sports Blogs Network(October 29, 2008 TechCrunch)
SB Nation (short for SportsBlogs Nation) operates with a network model, in which more than 150 local, team-based sites are linked together with a common visual template but remain written and programmed by local writers. Rather than strike affiliate relationships or simply represent sites for national ad sales, Bankoff has structured equity swaps for each of the sites in SB Nation in which the company acquires all the content, URLs and related assets, and the bloggers then share the ad revenue.
This article is an article on the sports blogs networks.
I thought that the method of distributing earnings of this blog network was interesting.
This blog network is to purchase the properties such as contents and URL of the joining blog, and to distribute the advertisement income to the blogger.
There is an advantage that the blog network can freely use contents etc. if it is this method.
I am anxious about the treatment of the copyright in the blog network.
The blog network in such a form might increase in Japan.

Technorati Acquires AdEngage Advertising Network(October 15, 2008 TechCrunch)
San Francisco based Technorati has acquired AdEngage , a twelve person advertising network based in Los Angeles, in an all stock transaction. The AdEngage platform will remain a free standing, branded service, and Technorati will also launch a version of the platform under its new Technorati Media brand. The size of the transaction is not being disclosed.
This follows Technorati’s August acquisition of BlogCritics, a network of blog content.
The blog network seems to have expanded.
There are two choices in a small blog.
One enters the subsidiary on a big blog network.
Another one holds out as an independent blog.

State of The Blogosphere: The More You Post, The Higher You Rank(September 24, 2008 TechCrunch)
All week, Technorati is releasing data from its 2008 State of the Blogosphere report. On Monday, Technorati told us that bloggers only need 100,000 visitors a month to make $75,000 a year (yeah, right). Today , it offers up something more believable: the more you post, the higher you are likely to rank on Technorati.
Blogging is a volume game. The more you post, the more chances there are that someone else will link to one of your posts. (Technorati rank is based on the number of recent links to your blog). The majority of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati post five or more times per day, and a full 43 percent post more than 10 times per day. Meanwhile, 64 percent of the 5,000 blogs ranked lower than 600 post two to four times a day, which is still a serious commitment.
In fact, about a quarter of all bloggers spend more than 10 hours a week posting, and 66 percent spend more than 3 hours a week.
The more you post, the higher you are likely to rank on Technorati.
So, the position in the Blogosphere seems to improve by increasing the number of posted articles.
I hear that the majority of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati post five or more times per day, and a full 43 percent post more than 10 times per day.
It only posts once a day for me.
However, the blog that enters the high rank posts a lot of articles.
The posted amount seems to be important simultaneously to improve the rank in the Blogosphere with the quality of contents of the blog.

Sergey Brin Launches A Personal Blog, Talks About His Risk Of Parkinson’s(September 18, 2008 TechCrunch)
In the second blog post, he gets a little more serious. He talks about how DNA startup 23andMe (cofounded by his wife Anne Wojcicki ) has shown he has certain gene mutation that is tied to Parkinson’s Disease – G2019S. While the mutation is rare in people with Parksinson’s, in some ethnic groups it accounts for a substantial proportion of familial Parkinson’s. In other words, if you have it, there’s a good chance you’ll get Parkinson’s.
He says based on current available data he’s 20%-80% likely to get the disease. And he can now do something about it:
This leaves me in a rather unique position. I know early in my life something I am substantially predisposed to. I now have the opportunity to adjust my life to reduce those odds (e.g. there is evidence that exercise may be protective against Parkinson’s). I also have the opportunity to perform and support research into this disease long before it may affect me. And, regardless of my own health it can help my family members as well as others.
I feel fortunate to be in this position. Until the fountain of youth is discovered, all of us will have some conditions in our old age only we don’t know what they will be. I have a better guess than almost anyone else for what ills may be mine — and I have decades to prepare for it.
This article is shocking news.
It is the one for everyone to grow old and to die.
However, he has learnt there is a risk of becoming a Parkinson’s disease.
If I am him, I might shock.
However, he has hope and he is very positive for the sickness.
