New, Web Traffic News Vidoe Update

RaiseHandImage I have been receiving allot of comments and suggestions so keep them coming.  One of the re-occuring requests is that I add video to the site, so I am doing exactly that.  About every 2 weeks I will film a video update and post it here on the Web Traffic News Blog.

This video update discusses how I lost access to one of my other traffic blogs, 2 guys who you should know about and how they relate to web traffic and I ask a question related to blogging as well.

I recieved some great comments on this video when I posted it at Facebook so be sure to add you two cents if you have not done so previously?

Yahoo’s My Blog Log closing down reports Web Traffic News

MyBlogLog image at Web Traffic NewsI recieved an e-mail in my Yahoo e-mail account recently that notified me of Yahoo’s intent to shut down it’s blog application “MyBlogLog”.  I was somewhat dismayed as I like the application and have used it on other blogs that I own.  I found it a useful web traffic getting app. and now I am watching closely to see what will happen next.

Here is part of the message that I recieved:

“Dear MyBlogLog Customer,

You have been identified as a customer of Yahoo! MyBlogLog. We will officially discontinue Yahoo! MyBlogLog effective May 24, 2011. Your agreement with Yahoo!, to the extent that it applies to the Yahoo! MyBlogLog, will terminate on May 24, 2011. ”

What are some traffic getting widgets or applications that you are having good results with?  Leave me a comment…

FCC says Happy Net Neutral Holidays!

Web Traffic News FCC imageI reported just prior to Christmas (25 DEC 2010) that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States of America was getting ready to rule on a landmark in internet history and true to form, they did just that.

The FCC adopted new rules to keep companies that control the Internet’s website traffic from restricting what their customers do online, they also ruled on why providers can not block competing services, including online calling applications and Web video.  These new rules are backed by the White House and wrapped up a year of efforts by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski in finding a suitable outcome to all parties involved. The new regulations are intended to ensure that broadband providers cannot use their control of the Internet’s website traffic points of origin to dictate where their subscribers can and can not navigate to.

Genachowski said: “Today, for the first time, we are adopting rules to preserve basic Internet values. For the first time, we’ll have enforceable rules of the road to preserve Internet freedom and openness.”

I didn’t experience and type of “control” or regulation prior to this ruling did you?  I am curious to know how you feel about this new ruling, is it good for the user or just big brother’s way of butting in to regulate yet another frontier that was once free but no longer can be?

Leave me a comment and let’s talk about it:
