Blogger Label Specify Feeds

Past June, I shared a tutorial about showing recent posts from a label, which was a helpful post. Earlier today, I was thinking if we could subscribe to specific label from our blog to get what we really want, and I read that article again and found a way to do this.

We don't need any other service, code or script to do this. It's just to easy and common thing. Also, email subscriptions of these feeds is not possible. It's a great idea to five your reader's an option to subscribe to their favorite content.

Now time to begin this tutorial. So, first below is our magic code :p

  • First, in above code replace yourblog with your blog's url.
  • Now replace LABEL with the name of the label you want. If your label is made up of more than one word it can get confusing as the space between the words will be filled automatically as shown below :

That's easy! Now subscribe to it with your favorite reader. It's sad that Google Reader is shutting down.

How To Customize YouTube Embedded Player

Most of bloggers/webmasters choose to host their videos on YouTube instead of their own website, which is a great way to get some extra views. Because if you're hosting it on YouTube, your video will also be visible to more than 800 million unique users every month. Also, by adding a backlink to your website, you can get some visitors from YouTube as well.

If you are going to use YouTube to host videos for your site, at the least, you should know some ways in which you can customize YouTube's embedded player.

YouTube Player Parameters:

To customize our YouTube player, first we need to learn about YouTube player parameters. So, I made a list of YouTube player parameters, which is available at this link. All of the parameters are optional. Note that these parameters are only officially supported by the embedded player.

For example, we're going to use "Autohide Video Controls After A Video Begins Playing," "Video Details" and "Video Player Theme" parameters from the list.

Customizing Old YouTube Player:

If you're still using old YouTube player, which is not a much smart choice but still, you can customize it with parameters. Below is the sample code of a non-customized YouTube player:

<object width="600" height="338"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="338" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Now to customize this player, we will add autohide=0 (to hide video controls after video begins playing), showinfo=0 (to hide video info) and theme=light (to add light theme to player.). Here is the customized old YouTube player:

<object width="600" height="338"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="338" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

We'll add each parameter with "&" tag.

Customizing YouTube Player:

Now it's time for those who are up-to-date, and are using new YouTube player aka iFrame player. Customizing new player is same as old player. Below is the sample code for non-customized new YouTube player:

<iframe width="600" height="338" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

First, we'll add "&" tag after video url. After "&" we'll add our first parameter, such as autohide=0. Then we'll add rest of parameters following "?" tag. Below is the code of customized new YouTube player:

<iframe width="600" height="338" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

That was easy! Hope it'll help you in future posting. Finally, below are both, non-customized (in left) and customized (in right) YouTube players:

Enable Reply To Comments Option On Facebook Pages

Facebook have released a new replies to comments feature on Facebook Pages, which is also known as threaded comments.

Tagging other people on comments really sucks (which doesn’t work if you are not "friends" with that person). So, with this feature, you can now reply specifically to their comment, and they will get a notification of it. Almost every Blogger is using this feature on their blog's comment system.

It's a great feature, and I just tested it. As of writing, this feature is only available for brand pages, and you can't use this on your groups or profile, which totally sucks.

How To Enable This Feature:

Pages with over 10,000 "likes" or "Followers" will have this new threaded comments feature automatically enabled. For Pages under 10,000, you need to manually enable it.

To turn on replies for your Page:

  • At the top of your Page, click Edit Page
  • Go to Manage Permissions
  • Select Turn On Replies

People who visit your Page will have the option to reply on posts that were created after you turned on replies.You can learn more about this feature, click here.

How To Start An Online Fashion Store

E-commerce and fashion are two of the most lucrative industries in the world. It makes sense, then, that combining the two would present an excellent opportunity. That said it is not as simple as taking some pictures of clothes and putting them online.

What is the sensible path to take when starting an online fashion store?

Identify a Gap:

A business in any sector will only succeed under one of two circumstances.

  • Is the demand for a product or service so great that there are multiple opportunities for new businesses?
  • Does a new business offer something beyond what those already in the industry are able to do?

Sometimes, both of those will need to be satisfied to be successful. Where is your ‘in’ when it comes to the market?

Without a reason to go into business, or something new to offer, you will struggle. How many businesses do you know that have been successful in a competitive market, simply by turning up and doing the same as everybody else does?

Try it Out:

Going into e-commerce is difficult, yet there are many benefits and advantages. Sites such as eBay and Amazon give you the opportunity to try out your products before ‘taking the plunge’ and paying for your own site hosting, design, and e-commerce plug-in.

Note that this is essentially a small market research exercise. Success on these sites doesn’t necessarily mean you will rake it in when the time comes to go it alone, while failure should not necessarily discourage you not to go further.

Establish a reputation on these sites, pay for featured listings if you have to, and you will get a good idea of what you can achieve. Often, a successful eBay shop, for example, is a great platform for migration to a standalone site. Some e-commerce businesses even link to Amazon and eBay through their own sites without having a buying platform actually within their design.

Think Beyond Fashion:

21st century consumers are more diverse and demanding than ever. You can have the most desirable clothing designs, be on point and on trend with everything you sell, have a beautiful looking website, a trustworthy payments partner, and a fast checkout process, and still not make as much as you thought you would.

Today’s consumer thinks about more than the price on the ticket. How did your business come about? Why should they buy from you? Essentially, you need to tell consumers the story that helped you identify the gap in the market from earlier.

Large e-commerce businesses are doing this in order to appeal to more people, so as a start-up it is a ‘must do’ step when it comes to building trust.

Invest Online:

Search engine marketing and social media are both excellent ways to push a new online fashion store. Search will take more of a financial investment, while social media will be more time intensive. However, giving both the necessary resources will leave you much better set to capitalise on the market opportunities and become a success.

Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags For Blogger

The Open Graph protocol enables developers to integrate their pages into the social graph. It works the same way as Twitter Card.

After using Open Graph META tags, Facebook show more detail about your posts to give readers a little preview of what they'll see when they click your link. Adding META tags to your blog to allow links to your site to be more informational when shared. You can learn more about Open Graph Protocol at this link.

Open Graph META Tags:

Before starting this tutorial, let me explain about the properties of META tags. The four required properties for every page are:

  • og:title - The title of the page.
  • og:type - The type of your object, e.g., blog, article, site.
  • og:image - An image URL which should represent your object.
  • og:url - The canonical URL of your object. Make sure that you have uploaded your images from Blogger Post Editor or is hosted on Picasa Web Album.

The following properties are optional for any object and are generally recommended:

  • og:site_name - The title of your blog.
  • og:description - A one to two sentence description of your object.

Optional Open Graph META Tags For Facebook:

These two META tags are option. You can add them to administrate your page from Facebook. To apply these META tags, you need either your Facebook account or your Facebook application ID (or both).

  • fb:admins - Your Facebook profile ID or Username.
  • fb:app_id - The application ID provided by Facebook App.

Adding Open Graph META Tags To Blogger:

Now, I'll show you how to perfectly add these META tags to your blog's template. Don't forget to backup your template.

  • Go To Blogger > Template > Edit HTML > Click on "Proceed"
  • Once you've opened up your template, find the </head> tag in your template's markup. Enter this markup directly above the </head> tag:
<!-- facebook open graph meta tags starts -->

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageTitle' property='og:title'/>
<meta content='blog' property='og:type'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName' property='og:title'/>
<meta content='article' property='og:type'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.canonicalUrl' property='og:url'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.title' property='og:site_name'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.postImageThumbnailUrl'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.postImageThumbnailUrl' property='og:image'/>
<meta content='Logo URL' property='og:image'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.metaDescription != &quot;&quot;'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' property='og:description'/>
<meta content='App-ID' property='fb:app_id'/>
<meta content='Facebook-profile-ID' property='fb:admins'/>

<!-- facebook open graph meta tags ends -->

In above code, make following changed:

  • Replace Logo URL with your blog's logo URL.
  • Replace App-ID with your the application ID provided by Facebook App.
  • Replace Facebook-profile-ID with your Facebook profile id or username.

If you don't want to add option Facebook META tags, then you can remove following lines from above code:

<meta content='App-ID' property='fb:app_id'/>
<meta content='Facebook-profile-ID' property='fb:admins'/>

Test Your Markup:

You can test your blog's Open Graph META tags markup by using Facebook's official parser and debugger.

Styling Tables With CSS

Styling dinner tables in not so easy unlike HTML tables. Using CSS to style a table is easy, and greatly simplifies the markup. Seriously, for the first time it looks a bit hard, but it's just too easy. At times it seems that tables are a little misunderstood in modern web development. A have one suggestion for you, "don't use tables" "don't use tables for layout."

Anyways, Before we dive into the CSS, let’s consider the key structural elements of tables you will need to style clearly:

  • Table headings
  • Table data cells
Here is our basic HTML mark-up:



<td>John Cena</td>
<td>The Champ</td>
<td>Attitude Adjustment</td>
<td>CM Punk</td>
<td>Best In The World</td>
<td>Go To Sleep</td>
<td>The Undertaker</td>
<td>Dead Man</td>
<td>Tombstomb Piledriver</td>
<td>Shawn Michaels</td>
<td>Sweet Chin Music</td>
<td>Rated R Superstar</td>


Without CSS, it will something like this:

Name Nickname Finisher
John Cena The Champ Attitude Adjustment
CM Punk Best In The World Go To Sleep
The Undertaker Dead Man Tombstomb Piledriver
Shawn Michaels HBK Sweet Chin Music
Edge Rated R Superstar Spear

The first decision is how wide to make the table. The browser default is the same as setting table { width: auto; }, which results in the table extending to the width of the content. Our tables are going to be 500px. Here is first design:

Name Nickname Finisher
John Cena The Champ Attitude Adjustment
CM Punk Best In The World Go To Sleep
The Undertaker Dead Man Tombstomb Piledriver
Shawn Michaels HBK Sweet Chin Music
Edge Rated R Superstar Spear

Above style is very simple and stylish. Our table has black background with 500px width, td has 5px padding, here is full CSS of above table:

table {

td {

th {

tr {

It was simple... :) Now it's time for second style:

Name Nickname Finisher
John Cena The Champ Attitude Adjustment
CM Punk Best In The World Go To Sleep
The Undertaker Dead Man Tombstomb Piledriver
Shawn Michaels HBK Sweet Chin Music
Edge Rated R Superstar Spear

The simplest way to accomplish zebra stripes is to add a class to alternate table rows, then use a contextual CSS selector to style the cells in those rows. First, the classes "odd" and "even" are added to the table rows, like so:


<tr class="odd">


<tr class="even">

But wait, Beben Koben shared a great way (in comments) to style even/odd elements without changing our mark-up. We're going to use :nth-child(even) and :nth-child(odd) to style them:

Here is full CSS of this table:

    border:2px black solid;

td {

th {

table tr:nth-child(even) {
    background-color: whitesmoke;

table tr:nth-child(odd) {
    background-color: lightgrey;

It's time for our final table, which is not created by me. It's from W3Schools. Here we go:

Name Nickname Finisher
John Cena The Champ Attitude Adjustment
CM Punk Best In The World Go To Sleep
The Undertaker Dead Man Tombstomb Piledriver
Shawn Michaels HBK Sweet Chin Music
Edge Rated R Superstar Spear
It looks awesome, isn't it? W3 Schools chose some great colors to create this table. Here is our CSS:

    background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
    border: 1px solid rgb(195, 195, 195);
    border-collapse: collapse;
    width: 500px;

th {
    background-color: rgb(229, 238, 204);
    border: 1px solid rgb(195, 195, 195);
    padding: 3px;
    vertical-align: top;
    text-align: left;
    font: 14px/20px Arial,Verdana;

td {
    border: 1px solid rgb(195, 195, 195);
    padding: 3px;
    vertical-align: top;

That's it for this time...hope it was helpful :) And I just realized that thumbnail of this article is not featuring our second table (Fixed IT). Also, just wanted to inform you that I used WWE related names and all in table because I'm a huge fan.

How To Backup Your Tweets

We all have some good tweets stored in our Twitter, which are really important to us. Shawn Michaels has replied to me three times, which is a great honor for a Wrestling fan like me. Twitter will only save your most recent 3,200 tweets. And your tweets are only searchable for roughly a week and a half.

Don't worry, you can backup your valuable tweets for free. Twitter is in process of releasing a new “Export Tweets”. The Export Tweets feature is in the process of being rolled out to all Twitter users. Until then, we'll use another great service call TweetBackup to backup our tweets.

TweetBackup runs over the internet, meaning there's nothing to install and no work required on your part. The only thing we require, is to follow @tweetbackup. As of writing, TweetBackup has 425,862,240 archived tweets!

Easiest Way To Make Money From Social Media

There are actually many ways to make money from social media. However, you need a strong fan base to make it work. In this post, we will discuss about some ways, which could help you to earn some money from your social media.

Twitter is a great way for people with same interest to connect and share their ideas and thoughts. You may know some Twitter accounts with some large number of followers. They just tweet funny things and some links. It's hard to accept but they are probably making some big amount of money with their tweets.

Just like them, you can also earn some money with your 140 chars. You may have to tweet, blog, tout, post, upload or pin. Here are some ways to use your social media power:

Social Media Manager:

A social media manager is the person responsible for managing a brand or company’s social media presence. Social media management doesn’t require a lot of education or experience as you may already have the skills to start doing it right now.

A social media manager manages their client's social presence across all the social platforms. As a social media manager, you'll be represent your client across all the social platforms that they intend to use like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest…etc.

It's your duty to interact with your brand's audience, reply them, build social media strategies, keep it clean, and more. I bet that you already know how to do most of the things. According to, a social media manager’s salary could go beyond the $100k mark depending on their location and expertise.

Advertising Products:

If you have a strong fan base then you can also use your social media profile to advertise a client's products or websites. Your client will pay you for tweeting or posting his product on your social networking profile. It could be a tweet, blog post or even a YouTube video.

Get started by contacting local dealers and new websites who want to get out into the market. It's just like putting a banner on your blog. Twitter and YouTube are the best way to advertise your client's products.

You can also promote and recommend certain products or services to your followers. You can also use some pay-per-click services that allows you to earn by tweeting their products.

Affiliate Marketing:

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's own marketing efforts.

Your affiliate host will provide you with your personal affiliate link. You can always track your link by using url shortening services, such as So whenever a follower clicks on your link, it is considered as a referral on your behalf, and you will get some percentage of that sale.

For example, if someone is asking your advice on the best domain registrar, you can refer them to your domain registrar via your referral link. The amount varies with different affiliate programs.

That's all for this time folks. Remember, you can earn with all above methods but keep it clean and spam free. In some future posts, we will be focusing on Money Blogging.

Combine Multiple Feeds Into One

Using web feed is a way of providing content to the user's browser or desktop in an efficient and easy way. In this post, we will not talk about creating a feed or anything like that. It's always hard to track every single feed, so we'll combine them into one.

By combining feeds you'll be able to put a variety of content into your website or favorite rss aggregator with a single rss feed by merging RSS feeds.

We don't need to download any crappy software, plugin or extension to combine our feeds. Last night, I searched and used bunch of services to combine/merge/mix feeds into one. Finally, I found three great services to do this, which are following:

RSS Mix: Mix any number of RSS feeds into one unique new feed! To create a new RSS Mix, copy and paste the URLs of the existing source feeds into the RSS Mix and hit Create! No signup required!!!

Feed Killer: The service is extremely simple and it is completely free! Enter the URLs of the feeds you want to merge Specify how many stories/entries from that feed you would like to have in your custom feed. No signup required!!!

Feed Combine: Feed combine can mix your feeds and combine RSS, RDF and Atom feeds into one feed-format! Just register, combine your favorite RSS feeds and subscribe the easy-to-use RSS feed URL.

That was easy....Don't forget to leave your response.

While Twitter developers were just too lazy to create something like that, Mark Carey created a Twitter Fan Box, which works just like the popular Facebook Fan Box, with a few small differences.

Twitter Fan Box displays the 10 most recent followers, which encourages people to follow your Twitter account. When someone clicks the "Follow" button, a popup appears for them to login to their Twitter account or authorize Twitter Fan Box.

Add Twitter Fan Box To Blogger:

  • Go To Blogger > Layout > Add A Gadget > HTML/JavaScript
  • Paste following code and click on Save:

<!-- Twitter Fan Box -->
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><div id="twitterfanbox"></div><script type="text/javascript">fanbox_init("HardeepAsrani");</script>
<!-- End Twitter Fan Box -->

Don't forget to replace HardeepAsrani with your Twitter handler. You can test this widget by following me:

Choosing A Perfect Name For Your Blog

Choosing a perfect name for your blog can be one of the most hardest and important thing. You want a name that portrays whatever your blog is about in a clear and concise manner. You can choose two types of names for your blog, relevant or something outside the box. Below are things to consider when choosing a blog name:

Related To Your Niche:  Make sure your blog's name is related to your blog's niche. It should give your visitors an idea about your blog. It's recommended that you focus on the main topic of your blog.

Easy To Remember: It must be easy for your visitors to remember. Be creative with your name but make it short and easy. Don't choose a ten word name for blog, which would look a bit awful. Stick with easy to remember names. Always try to pick a name with two or three words. Bored Panda is an epic name!!

Search For Available Domain Names:  This point is often ignored by people, probably because it's really hard to find a domain name of your choice that has not been registered yet. Always choose .com, .net or .org for your blog. If you're blogging about yourself then .me or .name is also a good choice.

Don't Be A Copycat: Copying a famous website or blog's name is not a great idea. You don't want to copy one of your competitor's blog names, so don't forget to Google a name before choosing it. Picking a famous website's name is also not good for your reputation. People will look your blog as a copy, even if it's not. Make sure it’s a name that will not get confused with other products, or services for that matter.

That's all for this time. These are just some few tips from me. In additional, asking your family and friends is also a great idea.

Hiding Links Inside Blogger Comments

Good News!!! The percentage on SPAM has not increased since the last year. Great, you know how high was the percentage last year? 100%!!!

Spam everywhere on your blog comments? Well, it's hard to find and delete every single spam comment from your blog. Even in Blogger, spammers will always target your blog's comment form to spread spam. Blogger's inbuilt spam filter will stop almost every possible spam comments but this will not solve the problem.

Last year, I shared a nice way to reduce email spam. Prayag Verma came up with a simple jQuery powered hack that hides any clickable link and just displays its text.


<script src=''/>

$('.comment-content a[rel$=nofollow]').replaceWith(function(){return ($(this).text());});


Add it just before the </body> tag in the Edit HTML. If you want to completely remove the links from the comments , then use this code instead:

<script src=''/>

$('.comment-content a[rel$=nofollow]').hide());


This works for the Threaded Comments in Blogger, incase you want to make it work for the old Comments in Blogger , then the code is as follows:

<script src=''/>

$('.comment-body p a[rel$=nofollow]').replaceWith(function(){return ($(this).text());});


Hope this will reduce some spam from your comments. Don't forget to leave your comments...

3D Flipping Menu For Blogger

Here is a pure css based menu with 3d flip concept. Menu items will flip on mouse hover. Menu is inspired from bunch of flipping menus, and is created by David Walsh. Seriously, David is one of my favorite web developers.

You can download or check a demo of this menu at this link. The HTML structure consists of a list with links. The animation centers around transitions and transforms.  The actual A element wont move -- the parent SPAN element will.

Adding This Menu To Blogger:

Finally, it's time for me to begin the tutorial, which is not much tricky. We're going to add this menu to blogger in two steps. Time for the first one:

  • Go To Blogger > Template > Edit HTML > Click on "Proceed"
  • Search for ]]></b:skin>
  • Post following css just above ]]></b:skin>:

        /* 3d flipping menu by */
        .block-menu {
            display: block;
            background: #000;

        .block-menu li {
            display: inline-block;

        .block-menu li a {
            color: #fff;
            display: block;
            text-decoration: none;
