Why a professional Blog is publishing blogger basics .They are already published on thousands of websites and blogs what is the logic :)

Firstly, You have violated one of our Comment Policy. By using Your URL in Author BIO. The only reason we haven't removed it to let everyone know that why we are publishing these articles. So here how it goes.

1. You are a professional blogger? but others are not. We have thousands and thousands of people visiting this site. They do need to learn basics because they are not a professional webmasters from birth

2. You know Google Analytics is quite good for websites but others have no idea what does the term Analytics stands for? The reason why we call them Beginners

3. If They are published on Thousands and hundreds of websites? does that mean it is reaching the whole world? You Buy a New Mercedes Does that means others don't need to buy the same care of same model? I Guess not.

4. MyBloggerLab is a "Resource site for Novoice Bloggers", we want them to be a professional by teaching them all the tips and techniques that a Professional Webmasters uses. No matter whether its basic or whatever you would like to name it.

Hope that answers would help you to learn what is the motive of our Team. Peace and Blessings budddy

Xebii Buddy. If you want to share some views than please don't remove them because I can read them but my dear readers would be unable to read what you have said. So Since you have deleted your comment than I will Tell what you said in above Comment

Xebii MJ Said:
The post still lacks at some points!
What if a blogger blog using a custom template, and there is no
<b:include data='blog' name='google-analytics'/>?
then this whole post would be failed, only a few % of blogs are using default templates provided by Blogger.

Going hard on other bloggers doesn't hide the fact that you ran-out of ideas! "

My Answer:
Do you think this post lacks? I don't think so buddy, i guess you have to refurbish your skills buddy because there is no need to add the Include attribution to the Templates either that is provided by Blogger or it is custom template. You can try both methods and it will work accurately without adding the attribution that you quoted.

As per the Ideas, Well to be honest, we have some tons of ideas and the team is working daily to provide some highly professional content and this article is the result of that.

Take Care buddy. Peace

Very ugly homepage customization. Revert it back to draft. Please. Its so yucky. Don't do that ever again.

February 10, 2013 at 4:40 AM

Syed, I guess he is using OpenId as his commenting system. So, be a little kind with people. I am seeing that you are becoming rude day by day. This is not done yet. I guess you should read your own emotion control post.
