How To Add Table To Blog Post

How to include table in blog post?
How to add boxes for text in blog post?


Here's the example of the code used to create a table with 2 rows and 2 columns.

<table align="center" border="1" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="1" width="400"><tbody><tr><td>A</td><td>B</td></tr><tr><td>C</td><td>D</td></tr></tbody></table>

As you can see, <tr> is the tag to begin a row, and the tag ends with </tr>.

While in between <tr> and </tr>, we have <td> to indicate a particular column in the row, and it ends with </td>. In between that, you can type the text you want. The example given is "A".

You can have as many <td> your text </td> you want in between the <tr> and </tr> tag.

Once you are done with a particular row, you can start another row my using <tr> again. And the process continues.

You can also modify the values of table align, border, cell padding and cell spacing. Changing the values will show different table styles. Try it out.

For the width, you can either use the pixel value (example "400") or the percentage (example "90%") to suite your preference.

Here's an example of another table with these values:

table align="center" border="10" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="10" width="90%"

And you might also want the values to be in the center. So just add <center>A</center> to the text.


Feel free to try it. Enjoy!

How To Add Favicon To Blogger Blog

How to add favicon?
How to create favicon for blog?

Here is a simple way to create a favicon for your very own blog!

Firstly, an icon is required. You can either use an online icon creator (which I think is not user-friendly) or Photoshop.

Once you've designed your icon, save it as an image file. Next, proceed to the online icon generator to generate the icon. There, upload your saved favicon image, select icon size 16x16 and generate it. Once it's done, download the icon into your computer.

Then, upload the downloaded .ico image file to the Internet, use Windows Live SkyDrive or any image uploader that supports icon, and get the icon URL there.

Attention: To get the right icon URL after uploading to SkyDrive, keep clicking on the image until it appears on the browser by itself. Then copy the URL from the address bar.

Next, follow this instructions.
  • Go to your Blogger dashboard
  • Click manage: Layout
  • Click 'Edit HTML' below the Layout tab
There, search for a code line like this:


Then, copy and add the code below the line and replace "your favicon URL" with your favicon's URL.

<link href='your favicon URL' rel='icon'

Save it and have a look at your blog. You should be able to see your small Favicon next to your blog address.

Take note: If you're using older versions of Internet Explorer, you might not be able to see the icon. Firefox on the other hand shows the icon well in bookmarks, URL addresses and tabs.

Hope you'll like it. Feel free to ask if you've any doubts. =)

Allocation of Nuffnang Advertisements

What is the allocation of Nuffnang ads on your blog? How does the advertisement allocation work?

i serve nuffnang badge button

Here's how. Brief explanation by Nuffnang crew - Robb.

Allocations for Nuffnang ads are counted based on the number of impressions or clicks the advertiser purchase divided by the number of days the advertiser intends to run the campaign. Take for an example, an advertiser purchases 700 ad impressions on your blog for a week's period. That means, it will be divided into 7 days and each day the ad will only be served to the first 100 visitors to your blog.

As each day begins anew at 12.00am, the ads will start showing from that time till the allocation of 100 impressions are used up for that day. That's why at times, ads don't show anymore once it reaches the late evening due to the fact that the impressions purchased for the day has all been used up.

If anyone doesn't understand anything, it's totally fine. You are free to ask Nuffnang about their services and they'll be glad to assist with their helpdesk system. :)

P/S: Thanks to Robb for the explanation and clarification.

P/S: I Love Nuffnang has been changed to Simple Blogger Tips to accommodate more tricks and tips for Blogspot bloggers - no longer limited to the world of Nuffnang!

Stay tuned for more tips and tricks!

15 Ways To Get NANGs in INNIT

In order to use INNIT, one has to obtain the Nuffnang Glitterati status first.

Okay, the more NANGs you get at INNIT, the higher the chances of your submitted post gets to the Top 10 Popular Posts. Once your post is up there, your blog will gain more visitor - even though your post is sucky.

The trick is - if your submitted post gets more than 20 NANGs, it'll probably end up at the Top 10 Popular Posts in the last 24 hours.

Here are some simple ways to get NANGs for your submitted entries in Nuffnang's blog aggregator - INNIT.

1) Post about Nuffnang-related issues.

For example:

  • NANGs & DANGs in INNIT
  • Dedicate posts to fellow Nuffnangers
  • Nuffnang Events, Outings, Cheques & Competitions

nuffnang staff

2) Submit interesting topics.

For example:

  • Gaining Traffic, More Visitor Hits
  • Money, Earning Online
  • Porn, Sex, Boobs & Women

nuffnang innit sex

nuffnang innit traffic

3) Post controversial issues.

For example:

  • Malaysian Politics
  • Hitting/criticizing on another bloggers
  • Defaming certain blogging styles

4) Use misleading title at INNIT.

For example:

You wrote about your teaching scolding you on your blog. Then when you submit on INNIT, you post the title as:

"My Teacher Fcuked My Ass! Pain! Child Abuse!"

There you go, everyone will be curious and click on the link. Dubious NANGs for you.

More real examples of misleading titles:

nuffnang innit misleading
nuffnang innit misleading

5) Attend Nuffnang events.

The more Nuffnang events you go to, the more active Nuffnang bloggers you'll meet. Once you get the know them better, the chances of them giving you NANGs for your submitted post is higher.

6) Go outings with Nuffnang bloggers. (Not related to Nuffnang events)

Same reason as Point 5.

7) Be a famous figure in INNIT.

There are some Nuffnang bloggers that are inactive in INNIT, but once they submit their post on INNIT, it gets NANG-ed so easily. Because everyone is hyped about them. How to be famous? Definitely socializing more with the other Nuffnangers.

8) Chat frequently on the Nuffnang Chatbox.

The more you chat, the more Nuffnangers you know. So when you submit a blog post, you can ask them to NANG it for you.

9) NANG other posts on INNIT aka "I-NANG-you, you-NANG-me".

When you NANG other bloggers' submitted INNIT posts, they might return the favour by NANG-ing on your submitted posts too. It's a win-win situation.

10) Use Twitter, Plurk or other "What Are You Doing" tools.

When you submitted a blog post on INNIT, update your Twitter with the link to the INNIT page of the post.

11) Use Facebook, Friendster or other social networking websites.

Post the link to the INNIT page of your submitted post on Walls, Bulletin Boards and etcetera. Other Nuffnang bloggers might notice and give you a NANG right away.

12) Promote in forums.

Post in forums regarding your submitted posts on INNIT. Who knows, there might other other Nuffnang bloggers using that forum too.

13) Add a "NANG IT!" button on your blog post.

Adding "NANG IT!" button at the end of your post can help too. Some Nuffnang bloggers might not come to your blog through INNIT. So providing a link back to the INNIT page of your post will allow them to NANG easily.

14) Tell other blogger friends to NANG your post on their blog's chatbox.

Just drop by their blog, say hi, leave the link to the INNIT page of the post and say "NANG ME! THX". If you have other Nuffnang blogger friends, just ask them to NANG for you. Smses, msn or phone calls will do the trick.

15) The right INNIT submission timing.

The time of your submission of your post in INNIT is important. Submitting your post at 6am in the morning won't get you NANGs because most Nuffnang bloggers are asleep. The encouraged time period to submit your posts is between 9pm to 1am. That's when most people are active.

So that's basically 15 quick ways to get NANGs for your submitted entries in INNIT. All the best!

P/S: Please don't use Point 4. It's not advisable to mislead INNIT users to thinking that you have a GREAT (or sex-related) writeup when the truth is that your post content is totally off from the title.

Disclaimer: Some points are not recommendable, do it at your own risk. The author is just stating all available ways to get NANGs.

Metered Campaigns VS CPC Campaigns

Many are unsure about the differences between a Metered Campaign and a CPC Campaign. Here are the explanation.

Metered Campaigns

Metered campaigns are ads that are paid based directly on the number of unique visits a Nuffnang user contribute to the campaign.

A Nuffnang blog can be assigned more than one metered ad at the same time in the same slot, but the owner will not receive notifications about these assignments (because of the potential volume, and because the campaign duration may not be fixed).

Earnings for metered campaigns are also handled differently because metered campaigns usually last longer than normal paid ads. It might take a while before Nuffnang credits the earnings to the account. In the meantime, Nuffnang users can see the running total that he/she has earned for that campaign so far as "Buffered Earnings".

Also, Nuffnang is giving out CTR Bonus to reward blogs for good campaign performance. Nuffnang will give out bonus earnings for blogs that achieve a CTR (Click-through ratio) of 0.2% or higher on new campaigns that run on a blog. This figure is based on average industry standards.

With metered campaigns, Nuffnang hopes to achieve the following:
  • A better distribution of ads to more bloggers.
  • Lower fatigue resulting in better click-through ratios.
  • More income since we can now run multiple advertisers on a single ad unit.

CPC (Cost-per-Click) Campaigns

Earnings for a CPC campaign are calculated based on the number of clicks a particular Ad Unit had in the past week. Usually it's 25cents per click for Glitterati members and 15cents per click for non-Glitterati members.

However, multiple clicks from the same computer with the same IP address & Mac Address will be considered as spam and as a result, the earnings will be reduced/removed. A warning will be issued by Nuffnang personnel too.
