Las visitas al diario The Times han caído dos tercios tras hacerse de pago


The Financial Times ha sacado a relucir los últimos datos en relación a las visitas de The Times. Después de que éste se hiciera de pago, las visitas al portal se han reducido dos tercios, aunque sin llegar al 90% que vaticinaban los más pesimistas.

Experian Hitwise, la empresa que analiza el tráfico de los sitios web, ha anunciado otros datos que muestran que la caída más significativa se produjo en las semanas anteriores a la aplicación del cobro, es decir, cuando se solicitó a los usuarios que se registraran. En la semana posterior al comienzo del cobro, la caída se moderó, aunque quizás influyó la coindicencia con el Mundial de Fútbol. Posteriormente, las visitas al portal se redujeron un 33% respecto al nivel anterior a la implantación del modelo de pago. Sigue leyendo

New BlackBerry API Can Grab Location Info From Cell Towers in Lieu of GPS


RIM has just added a new geolocation feature to its Locate Service toolkit, which will permit BlackBerry developers to use cellular tower data when grabbing location data for their apps. This will ultimately enable apps to use cellular towers to approximate location if a user is in an area without GPS coverage.

This is similar to what Google (Google) does to determine location via Wi-Fi. However, RIM’s Locate Service use cellular towers instead of wireless hotspots. As more and more applications become geo-aware, having backup methods for location querying is important, especially if the app is being used in a location or building that makes GPS usage difficult.

Popscreen helps you discover cool videos, then predicts how popular they will become.


//

When you absolutely, positively have to be the first of your friends to see the coolest new videos, there’s a new site that is making sure it happens.  Popscreen is making a run on the headline-forming videos that change by the minute.

The site is simple enough, showing videos that are relevant to your selected interests.  Beyond that, though, you’re able to create your own video channel and then share those with your friends.

It’s fed through a network of Featured Influencers, including Shareables right here at TNW, to assure that you’re always getting fresh content.  What’s really cool about Popscreen, though, is its ability to predict what’s up and coming.

As content is fed into the service, the algorithms go to work to decide if a video is going to boom or bust.  Popscreen will then give you the chance to look at predicted traffic for the video, keeping you ahead of the information curve.

The video player for Popscreen is beautifully done, with a wealth of features.  Of course you can share across a number of social networks, but you also have some player choices that are second-to-none.

  • Lights Off – Wims the Popscreen site so that your video comes to focus.
  • Widescreen – Watch your chosen video in 16:9 or standard 4:3
  • Pop It – Somewhat like Digging a story, which keeps the video going higher. Sigue leyendo

Behance Helps Creatives Showcase Portfolios on LinkedIn


Behance, a platform for creative professionals, has just launched a new collaboration between its service and LinkedIn. Utilizing a new app called Creative Portfolio Display, users can now connect their portfolios directly to their LinkedIn accounts.

This is a great bridge between the creative and the more professional social networking worlds. At the Mashable Media Summit earlier this summer, Co-founder and CEO of Behance Scott Belsky spoke about the growth of the network and its focus on bringing creative meritocracy to the design world.

Behance has always been focused on helping organize the creative world. To that end, the free Behance Network (Behance Network) lets artists, designers and other creative professionals showcase their projects and portfolios. With the new LinkedIn partnership, the potential audience for Behance members increases exponentially. Sigue leyendo

11 Ways to Speed Up WordPress


Cyrus Patten is the editor of Pingable.org, a blog about everything WordPress. He specializes in the role of technology in community organizing.

WordPress (WordPress) is inherently fast, and that’s why so many professional bloggers call it their choice platform.

Like many new bloggers, I used to think that until I had enough traffic to make a difference, I’d worry about the bandwidth and site speed later. But that’s not thinking ahead considering that today social media can drive an overwhelming amount of traffic in a very short period of time; you don’t want to get caught with a crashed site.

When you’re not prepared for lots of traffic, it’s common for a web host to suspend your account temporarily, and that’s something you don’t want. If your writing is decent and you’ve been doing some minimal promotion, then it could happen to you. Think positively and prepare your blog as though it’s going to be a huge success. To do that, here is a tutorial on how to speed up your WordPress site.

Note: As always, with everything, you should backup your WordPress installation before making any code changes. Sigue leyendo
