Fast Page Loading Themes Blogs

In Blogging on December 22, 2013 at 11:53

I have noticed that a slower Page Load affects the Blog Traffic.

If the page of your Blog site is slow, this you can find out by yourself or for details of your page loading time against standard Page Loading time you may check with Quantcast,Woorank ,Alexa or some good Web Analyzing Tools, one of the main reasons is that the Page has too many elements.

One reason is that one uses large images and Videos.

Blog Themes

A WordPress Theme

I am aware that Images and Videos make the posts attractive  and lends crdence to your posts, it is advisable to use medium size images and not to load too many Large images and Videos,.

Ensure that your Home Page Posts do not contain more than 15 % Videos/images %.

I shall be posting on this subject.

In common man’s language the page has many, sometimes unnecessary  elements that make the page load slower.

Many of us, including me, try to include as many Free Widgets as possible in our Home Page.

It could be Traffic Monitors where it provides Visitor Information.Internet defense League, Indiblogger,Blog trophies,Clock and the like.

I have used almost all of them under the mistaken impression it enhances my sites aesthetics and the information provided by these widgets are useful for the reader.

Traffic to blog posts, I have noticed, is because of Content.

What we write, and its usefulness to the reader drives traffic.

And authenticity with sources for the information.

Anything more than this distracts the reader.

People browse, in general,for fast and relevant  information

There are exceptions where people want to pass time.

For this they have a lot of sites including social networking sites like Facebook,Myspace,Tumblr, thought he last one accommodates serious stuff as well.

One has to choose a Theme which has minimum elements  technically yet loads faster.

The Color schemes may have a role in this.

So choose a Theme which has minimum elements and make sure it is attractive.

Check if it loads fast .

For an absolute idiot like me trial and error method is the best.

Try and fix it.

I used tried DePo masthead Theme of WordPress(Free Theme) for a long time.

it was doing quite well.

Suddenly I changed to some colorful Themes,on being told by mu son that my Theme was bland and unattractive.

I have used more than Five themes.

I was content that my blog was looking grand. it did look.

But I have received comments from my readers that colors distract them from reading th content and some colors are irritating (the last point is subjective ,of course)

Surprisingly most laudatory comments were received for the simple DePo masthead Theme, which you are reading now,stating that it is easy to read and the Page . especially the Home Page loads very fast.

Most importantly I have seen an increase of about 25% in Home Page Views, though content wise there has been no shift in my Blog.

Why do not some of you try similar simple themes?

* I am not a Technical man and my suggestions need not be correct.

If some one has more relevant information, they may post either in the comments column, send an email or if it is a detailed one send in their post for publication.

Facebook, Divorce,Alcohol Abuse,Escort Service,Syphilis

In Behavior, internet on June 3, 2012 at 12:14

The Internet is abuzz  with Statistics showing that Facebook is responsible for 20% of Divorce according to Lawyers.

Worst of all is the fact that “”There are now FB widows and ‘spending time on Facebook’ is replacing ‘spending time online watching porn’ as grounds for cruelty,” said Deshmukh.

There are also reports that Facebook increases Alcohol abuse.
Neela Gokhale, a divorce advocate, recounts that in Pune, a woman found her husband “obsessed with FB and ‘adding’ women friends. She has filed for divorce”. Facebook posts and pictures are being used as evidence in courts”

People want to pour out their emotions in Face Book , least understanding that the information they post may be used by professional Pimps ,lurking under the guise of Escort Service or offering to console them(men by women ,women by men).

One leads to another and ends up in illicit relationship.
You find a column(is it how it is called(?)  where boys and girls state that they are in ‘Relationship?

In some cases it lets people know that they are in Love and use this to let the parents  know of their Love through this medium or by those who can inform the parents,having seen the Status.

The ideal step,in the case of a Genuine Love, is to inform parents directly.

People do not know realize that it hurts a parent know of their children’s relationship through others, especially when they happen to be the last to be informed.

But in illicit relationships, the price one may have to pay ranges from Divorce to Death,Murder.

Many a future have been ruined by posting indiscriminatingly in Facebook .

No use in blaming the Social Media.

Post Garbage,get Garbage.

Please read my blog .Avoid posting these information On line

When Facebook gets involved, relationships can quickly fall apart – as Hosni Mubarak and Muammar Gaddafi have discovered. But dictatorships are not the only ties being dissolved by social networkingsites: now Facebook is increasingly being blamed for undermining American marriages.

Even though the rate of divorce in the US has remained largely stable in recent years, American divorce lawyers and academics have joined Middle East analysts in picking out Facebook as a leading cause of relationship trouble, with American lawyers now demanding to see their clients’ Facebook pages as a matter of course before the start of proceedings.

“We’re coming across it more and more. One spouse connects online with someone they knew from school. The person is emotionally available and they start communicating through Facebook,” said Dr Steven Kimmons, a clinical psychologist and marriage counsellor at Loyola University Medical Centre near Chicago.

Yet while the US media has been quick to trumpet any evidence of Facebook as the country’s leading marriage-wrecker, the truth is “It’s complicated,” as the site’s relationship status would have it.

2010 survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) found that four out of five lawyers reported an increasing number of divorce cases citing evidence derived from social networking sites in the past five years, with Facebook being the market leader.

Two-thirds of the lawyers surveyed said that Facebook was the “primary source” of evidence in divorce proceedings, while MySpace with 15% and Twitter with 5% lagged far behind.

Those statistics included not just evidence of infidelity but other legal battles, such as child custody cases in which parents deny using illicit drugs but boast of smoking marijuana on their Facebook pages.

Photographs harvested from social networking sites – including those posted by friends or colleagues on their own pages – are a particularly rich source of damning evidence, according to divorce lawyers.

“This sort of evidence has gone from nothing to a large percentage of my cases coming in,” Linda Lea Vicken, a member of the divorce lawyers’ group from South Dakota, told the Associated Press.

Marlene Eskind Moses, president of the AAML, said the openness and sharing of social networking sites left their users’ public and private lives more exposed.

“If you publicly post any contradictions to previously made statements and promises, an estranged spouse will certainly be one of the first people to notice and make use of that evidence,” said Moses.

Statistics for January from online analysts Nielsen showed 135 million people in the US visiting Facebook during the month – nearly 70% of the country’s internet users. On average, users spent more than seven hours a month visiting the site, far longer than the less than half an hour spent on visits to Amazon or the average of two hours and 15 minutes on Google, America’s most popular web destination.”

It found those who used such sites daily were five times more likely to smoke tobacco as those who did not, three times as likely to drink alcohol and twice as likely to use marijuana.

The poll of 12 to 17-year-olds Americans, conducted by Columbia University, found 70 per cent of those interviewed said they used social networking sites on a typical day, while 30 per cent did not.

One of the main reasons for going on such sits, besides actually communicating with friends, is to keep tabs on peers by looking at their photographs.

But the study found that pictures of teenagers “drunk, passed out, or using drugs on Facebook and other sites” were “rampant”.

However, parents seemed unaware that browsing such sites could increase their child’s likelihood of abusing drink or drugs, with almost nine in 10 believing it did not have an effect on them.”

Case have increased fourfold in Sunderland, Durham and Teesside, the areas of Britain where Facebook is most popular.

Professor Peter Kelly, director of public health in Teesside, claimed staff had found a link between social networking sites and the spread of the bacteria, especially among young women.

He said: “Syphilis is a devastating disease. Anyone who has unprotected sex with casual partners is at high risk.

“There has been a fourfold increase in the number of syphilis cases detected with more young women being affected.

“I don’t get the names of people affected, just figures, and I saw that several of the people had met sexual partners through these sites.

“Some marriages may get saved, but Facebook, which a recent survey in UK blamed for nearly a third of all divorces, is leading to a rise in face-offs in family courts across India too. “Facebook is fast becoming a reason why many marriages are faltering,” said celebrity divorce lawyer Mrinalini Deshmukh.

As divorce petitions get peppered with the mention of Facebook and printouts of web pages, the reason is not merely because couples spend more hours individually on the site, Deshmukh said. “Spending more time, especially at night before bedtime, with friends on Facebook or merely playing games on the site is no doubt eating into couples’ together-time or intimacy. More pertinently, if someone wants to have an affair or flirt, then FB is an easy place to do it. People also use the ‘friend finder’ to re-unite with school or college friends and some really unite. One couple opted for mutual consent divorce when her husband found his former love on FB,” the lawyer explained.

Reach 10 Millions-Google,Facebook and Twitter Comaprison.

In internet, Uncategorized on January 25, 2012 at 10:14

The other day  I was curious to know as to how long,on an average,it took Google,Twitter and Facebook to reach  10 Million users as this information will help one to reach more audience.

Image representing Google as depicted in Crunc...

It is another matter whether these services get more Traffic because of what you and me write or we get more because of these services.

I found some information through StumbleUpon which I am sharing.

It takes 16 days for Google,780 Days for Twitter and Facebook  in 852Days.

These figures may be misleading as Google disseminates information in general while Twitter and Facebook news is on the basis of what one shares, which normally is from Google.

Americans and Social Media ,a Study.

In Behavior, internet on November 16, 2011 at 08:08

The urge to be gregarious seems to be reflected in this study.

Communication problems with the members of the family and clash of values,gross materialism and the view that whatever is,is here to stay makes one forget the values of human bonding.

Also too much of  analyzing Life and emotions deprive the charm of Living.

Life is to be lived,not analyzed, reasons for everything will not be available and one should take Life as it comes and be happy with those near and enjoy company ,make others happy.

Nothing can substitute the pleasures of personal interaction.

The more faceless interaction, more lonely one becomes.

Two-thirds of online adults (66%) use social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace or LinkedIn.1 These internet users say that connections with family members and friends (both new and old) are a primary consideration in their adoption of social media tools. Roughly two thirds of social media users say that staying in touch with current friends and family members is a major reason they use these sites, while half say that connecting with old friends they’ve lost touch with is a major reason behind their use of these technologies.

Other factors play a much smaller role—14% of users say that connecting around a shared hobby or interest is a major reason they use social media, and 9% say that making new friends is equally important. Reading comments by public figures and finding potential romantic partners are cited as major factors by just 5% and 3% of social media users, respectively.

Motivation for using social sites.

 

Those who say that keeping up with family members is a major consideration in their use of social networking sites are a demographically diverse group.  Two-thirds of all social media users cite family connections as a major reason for their use of these tools, and there are no major differences on this question in terms of age, income, education, race/ethnicity, parental status or place of residence. The primary difference on this topic pertains to gender, as female social media users are more likely than male users to cite family connections as a major reason for using these sites (72% vs. 55%).
