Search engine Google has just recently introduced +1 Button similar to the Facebook Like button, as a part of the “Social Search.”
“Social Search” is a concept by Google which helps the searcher discover relevant search results in Google with personalized search results based on the Google +1 Button. That means, if you promote your website with the Google +1 Button, all your contacts and social circle (your friends and family connected to your Google account) will be able to instantly notice your recommended website in their search results.

Google Labs has just launched Page Speed Online which thoroughly analyzes the contents of your webpage and generates suggestions on how to make your webpage load faster.
Whether you know or not, faster loading webpage is very, very important – detailed data analysis shows that 49% of the users quickly abandons your website if your webpage doesn’t load within 3 seconds, hence resulting in higher bounce rates and less conversions. Even a one-second delay among websites which are equally rich in content, with equal unique visitors, is found to have 11% fewer page views, 16% decreased customer satisfaction, and 7% less conversions.
So is it because of your slow web site that you’re getting so high bounce rates?
So your WordPress.com Stats Plugin also stopped working in all your WP installed sites just like mine? Since March 16th, I’ve been also been getting the following errors in my WordPress.com Stats Plugin which says:
Error from last API Key attempt:
The owner of that API Key (XXXXXX) is not on the access list for this blog (XXXXX). Stats was installed using a different API key. The owner of the original key can add users to the access list, or you can contact WordPress.com support.
I tried reinstalling the API key, etc. etc., but still the problem persisted. So instead, I started testing different other statistics plugins and in fact, it is working better than the WordPress.com Stats Plugin! If you’re also one of those suffering from this same problem, here is the list of my Top 8 Best WordPress Statistics Plugins which worked like a charm!
