Invitations to Netvibes Ginger!

4 03 2008

I have been among the lucky ones who were invited to test Netvibes ‘ new version called Netvibes Ginger Beta (the RSS feed reader).

Netvibes Ginger

I am an early adopter of Netvibes, and I think it’s the best RSS readers available; I have enjoyed a lot the new features Ginger Beta has added and apparently I am now able to share my excitement with Blog on travel’s readers before they release the new version officially:

Indeed, as a reward to my loyalty toward Netvibes, today I received this email:

 

  • Thank you for making the Netvibes Ginger beta program such
    a success!We are about to open Ginger to every Netvibes user and want to let
    you know so you can be one of the first to invite your friends.

Drop a nice comment on this article with your email to receive an invite for Netvibes Ginger; and please give your feedback concerning those (great) new features once you have been invited.

500 feedburner readers

I am pretty happy to announce that Blog on travel finally passed the psychological barrier of 500 subscribers to its RSS feed today (via feedburner). It has been quite a long way to achieve this, you can see this in the graph below that shows the RSS Subscribers of this blog from the very beginning:

Here is another graph that shows the RSS audience of Blog on travel; 53% of the audience comes from the great RSS reader Netvibes (which I highly recommend), then 15% of the RSS audience comes from Google Feedfetcher.

SEO achievements:

I am also pretty happy to see that the Search Engine Optimization work I have performed for the last 6 months helped the blog to make it to the TOP 10 results of Google.com for the keywords “travel blog”; Blog on travel is now ranking 9th on the first page of results for those words.

PS: By the way thank you Google for updating the Page Rank to 4/10.

Forbes, Bootsnall, Travelpod and Lonelyplanet still precede Blogontravel in that ranking. I will keep you posted of major changes..
