Blog Updates

1. Permanent Authors -

2. Added Some Badges for Authors/Contributors

3. Popup Domination Plugin – This was the most useful update i’ve ever done to increase my newsletter subscribers.

I use an awesome plugin called Popup Domination created by my friend Michael Dunlop to create really gorgeous looking lightbox optin forms with just a few clicks. It increased my opt-ins by 250%-300%.

Some of the changes I’ve made have been recent and others I implemented month’s ago and just never discussed them before. Please share some suggestions below.

I would also like to hear your opinions on the new design of my wordpress blog –

A Big thanks to Alex, OnibalusiNabeel, Murray, Joe, Tinh for being active and participating on my site.

I like the way you show your blog stats every month, it’s real helpful for people like me, I’ve a somewhat simliar blog and it lets me see how I’m doing in relation to blogs like yours.

I’ve got similar traffic figures, but my bounce rate is through the roof! It’s like 70%! how do you have it so low!?

The traffic seems cool.

On your new blog design..the design is elegant enough..loved it, though I feel that the links in the footer widget shouldn’t be having any text-decorations (indicating to underlines)

Fantastic work Dev – you’re really taking off, those are some fantastic traffic stats.

Popup Domination has seemed to really picked up and its a really excellent way to capture visitors. I hope I’ll eventually get around to it but for the meantime I’ll continue to write content :)

This month was excellent from all the various bloggers contributing – plenty of variety.

As for the new design, it’s looking great. I’m a big fan of the small thumnails on the popular posts cause it really catches the eye.

Hi Dev,

Great stats man. Keep it up!

WPKUBE’s design is looking really better. It is attractive, yet simple. Just like how a good blog should be!

Thanks a lot for the mention Dev. I really appreciate it!


PS: I think you meant July here:

“Well May has definitely been a very exciting month for Technshare!”

Devesh August 9, 2010 at 11:46 am

Hey Nabeel,

That’s great to hear mate.

Thanks for the awesome post support as usual nabeel.

Dean Saliba August 9, 2010 at 1:22 pm

I’m about to start posting on Warrior Forum in the hope of generating some traffic from the members. Glad to see that although it is not huge traffic, you are getting some from there.

Do you post often on there?

Congrats on your traffic, Dev.

I can only imagine that it will continue to rise, as the content on Tech N’ Share becomes more plentiful, and gains more and more quality.

Thanks for the mentions, too. :D

Hey Joe,

Thanks for your words dude. You’re really doing great work everywhere. keep up the good work.

Awesome Dev, keep up the good work.

I mean, Only 6000 visits?!?
I want to see 50k or I quit!


Devesh August 15, 2010 at 5:57 am

Hey Alex… !!

haha :D . Yeah… only 6k… !!

Thanks for the awesome support man. Much Appreciated.

Tek3D August 10, 2010 at 1:10 pm

Honestly I don’t like the Popup Domination plugin, I think the pop up is annoying and doesn’t show respect to many readers. They will subscribe to newsletters manually when they find your blog useful.

Hi devesh, nice stats.

Your alexa rank is 31K. Can you please tell me the figure that how much we can earn if I too have the same alexa rank. My blog’s alexa rank is 200k. Can you propose some ideas to bring it near to 60K.

I’ve seen the popup domination being used everywhere and with good reason as I understand now. I was actually considering paying out (however possible) the money to use Aweber because I thought it was a part of that but now I see I can keep MailChimp and use it at the same time. That’s awesome!

It’s cool that you share what’s happening behind the scenes of your blog.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Devesh August 15, 2010 at 6:01 am

Hey Eric,

That’s awesome to hear man.

Thanks for the support as usual. I really appreciate it.

Bailey Ing August 15, 2010 at 3:04 pm

Hey Dev,

Great work man. I think this blog has excellent content that makes me come back time after time, so I’m not surprised that your visitors are growing so fast.

So good to hear the positve results. I’m also really glad that you’ve managed to build more subscribers from the pop up dominion program. I’m going to test it out my self very soon. I’ll let you know how I get on with it.

Keep up the good work Dev

Wow, you increase the opt-in rate to 250% – 300%. That’s impressive! I know Popup domination and increase the opt-in rate but can’t imagine it’s that much :)
