How much is your blog worth? Code for your templateThursday, October 27, 2005
I posted previously about a cool form to find out hypothetically how much your blog is worth based on the link/dollar ratio derived from AOL's Weblogs Inc acquisition.
Having lamented that it's not dynamic, i.e. the code provided for the search results only shows the value of your blog at the time of your last search, it just occurred to me (sorry, being slow that day!) that there is a solution with a very simple template hack.
You can just add code to your template so that when you or someone else clicks on it, it instantly gives you the value of your blog at the time of that click. I'll be amending my template later to add it to my sidebar, but for now here's what the link would look like for my blog (just click the link and see):
How much is this blog worth?
And here's the code to insert in your blog template, for Blogger users - if Blogger is acting up and that <$BlogURL$> template tag doesn't work (which I've noticed sometimes with my blog), or if you are not on Blogger, just change "<$BlogURL$>" to whatever template tag represents your blog URL on your platform, or easier still just change it to the URL of your blog, see the second example below:
<a href="http://www.business-opportunities.biz/projects/how-much-is-your-blog-worth/worth.php?url=<$BlogURL$>">How much is this blog worth?</a>
Directly using your blog URL you can use this code (but of course change http://consumingexperience.blogspot.com to your blog's URL):
<a href="http://www.business-opportunities.biz/projects/how-much-is-your-blog-worth/worth.php?url=http://consumingexperience.blogspot.com">How much is this blog worth?</a>
