  1. Is it possible to add a widget to display the countries that are visiting my site? Thanks

    The blog I need help with is livinganewthought.com.

  2. 1. You copy and paste the FlagCounter code into a text widget.

    2. We can only use the HTML version (non-Javascript) so be sure you get the correct code. HTML feedjit code for wordpress.com blogs, MySpace, Windows Live Spaces, LiveJournal and Hi5 users > http://feedjit.com/joinimg/
    Step 1: Customize It! (Choose your color scheme, widget width, and the maximum number of entries to be displayed.)
    Step 2: Copy the code into your site HTML or into a text widget.

    3. If you want a map then you can use clustrmaps plain HTML version (non-Javascript) and place the code in a text widget in your sidebar. http://www.clustrmaps.com/index.htm

  3. Thank you timetheif!!

    I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I am not techno-savvy enough to know exactly where this code is to copy.

    Example: In my stats, I have a list of 24 countries that visit my blog. So where would I get the HTML version of that list to copy and taste?

    Thanks in advance!! : )

  4. There is no thing available to us from those stats.

  5. I see. Well I guess I will just let that idea go. Thanks again for your very detailed and gracious help.

    Take care,
    April

  6. You're welcome.

  7. Oh yeah....while I have you here. What is considered to be "good stats" for an AVERAGE blogger? 100 a week, 100 a day, _____ per month, etc.

  8. There is no "average" blog or blogger. There are so many blogging niches and such a variation in quality of content or lack thereof that apples to orange comparisons have no value.

    Advice: (I'm a blogging tips blogger.) In the blogosphere you must give to get. It takes months of posting frequently to attract viewers who will actually submit comments. And, the best way to get comments on your own posts is to leave meaningful comments on blogs with similar content to what's in your own blog. Set a goal of commenting on "X" number of blogs weekly and carry through.
    See > http://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-more-views-and-traffic/

    Here are 25 basic steps to take to increase traffic to your blog:
    1. Structure a reader and search engine blog;
    2. In blogging content is king create unique, high quality content so publish fresh content frequently;
    3. Learn basic SEO so you can use keywords effectively and apply basic SEO to your headlines, blog and posts;
    Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results.
    4. Make your blog posts look professional;
    5. Create at least 4-6 pillar posts and continue to create pillar posts;
    Pillar posts are also referred to as flagship content. Pillar posts are comprehensive posts that offer great value to readers as the contents are timeless in nature. They define you as having authority in the niche you blog in.
    6. Select and link to appropriate anchor text;
    7. Leave meaningful comments on related blogs and encourage comments on your own blog;
    8. Develop relationships with other bloggers so you can build a blog readers’ community around your own blog;
    9. Support the blog centered communities on related blogs by commenting on them and promoting posts from them;

    11. Deep link to your earlier related posts in your new posts;
    12. Assign appropriate categories and tag your posts with care;
    13. Link to related authoritative blogs in your blogroll;
    14. Provide RSS feeds for subscribers;
    RSS (Rich Site Summary or really simple syndication) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.
    15. Having a well designed theme is important, evaluate your theme for effectiveness, and if required, create a new header, make improvements or replace your theme and reduce page loading time;
    16. Avoid cluttering your blog with widgets that lack reader value and slow page loading time;
    17. Buy your own domain and domain mapping;
    18. Verify your blog with the three big search engines.
    19. Get organized, use an online to do list by developing a blogging workflow;
    20. Join social networks and social media sites like Facebook and use Twitter, Friendfeed and other Free RSS directories to promote your blog posts;
    21. Promote your blog through social networks, online groups, and selected directories;

  9. Whew!!!! I'm exhausted just reading that. : ) I will attempt to implement these great suggestions.

    Thanks again!!

  10. If you ask for advice -- I deliver lol :D That was a copy and paste I frequently use. You can bookmark it for later reading.

  11. In continuation to initial question regarding views by country...
    when i add flag counter it starts counting from the day I add. is there any option to add counter that will take into account all previous stats?

    Thank you in advance
    Anya

  12. Thank you for your help Timethief :-)

    I'm so happy I have a FlagCounter on my blog. Now I'm going to have to stay up all night posting a new blog every hour or so to encourage my visitors from all over the world to drop in & say hello! Anya - i think this is the only way to get 'backdated' stats - start again!!

  13. @barbaramolony
    You're welcome and your answer to anyaworksmart is correct. :)

  14. I see, thank you both!

  15. @anyaworksmart
    Flagcounter stats aren't retroactive. They commence at installation. Best wishes with your blog. :)

  16. Thank you timethief:)
    Last weekend there was a problem with widgets and I lost what I had:(
    Although the blog is young, I went public this september I already have a very nice collection of visitors around the world and now to show the counter with one flag seems awkward...
    Question: If I put the text widget with the flagcounter in the inactive section will it still accumulate the visitors? Before putting again on the sidebar I would really want to get to the picture that represents the best...
    Thank you in advance!

  17. If I put the text widget with the flagcounter in the inactive section will it still accumulate the visitors?

    No it will not.

  18. ...thank you timethief! will start from the beginning...

  19. I don't know if you understand me or not. The Flagcounter will not go back in time. it cannot do that. It only records for the point in time when it's installed. if you remove it and then put it back you are queering the process.

  20. I understand it won't show all the previous counts, but since the widget disappeared, I need to put it back...

  21. Okay. I just wanted to be sure I hadn't confused you. :)

  22. no, no, you have explained it perfectly clear:)
    may be I'm paranoic, so thank you in advance for your patience,
    I put the flag for now in the footer, if I move it latter from footer to side bar, will it mess up the count?
