Model Blog Web 2.0 (?) and Up and Coming Posts

This months PC Pro magazine has kindly listed digitalurban as one of five model blogs for Web 2.0. In an interesting feature they run through setting up a blog and increasing your readership, something where we seem to flounder on slightly. While its nice to be highlighted as a model blog we cant help wondering where all the readers are, if your one then your one of elite few. Looking across the pond – Frank Taylors excellent GEarth Blog has just celebrated 8,000,000 page views in the last year.. now we are way way below that yet our content, although not dedicated to Google Earth is kind of similar although admittedly more niche. So thanks to PCPRO for their recommendations, we are off to read the ‘how to increase your readers’ section to see if there is anything we have missed. If you are a reader then tell a friend and a friends friend!

In the meantime its a dull rainy day in London so we are about to sit down with a coffee and write a tutorial on how to create free reverse movies from Google Earth. Why would you want to reverse a movie (?) – to create a smooth perfect zoom in to your favourite location from earth, just like the movies on Discovery or the BBC, the post will be online later today.

As a update to the Google Earth Panorama Viewer.. it should be released, again with a tutorial, later this week.

*Edit 18.43/6th Jan 2007*

Well the coffee was good and the tutorial on creating movies in Google Earth is now online. Been thinking about the Web 2.0 article and how this blog is mentioned as a model for blogging yet has a low number of readers. From reading around the subject it seems that ‘diggs’ and ‘reddits’ are good for traffic, each post has a ‘digg this’ or ‘reddit’ etc link under it so if you do read something you like give us a reddit đŸ™‚

Any thoughts hints or tips?
