    Wow, this is great. I’ll blog it on our side when I get a minute. We’re unlikely to pull them onto our site itself, so the Sunnyvale trip will have to wait. 🙂

    I do have one immediate concern. As is well-known by this point, we’re working hard to lessen the spam issues that our users are contending with. Do you mind (and ASAP) making “Add Missing Contacts” less scriptable in addition to the changes we’ll be making? Particularly due to the time it takes for you to crawl our site, etc., it would be easy to put a quick captcha page between the request and the results.

    I feel like a hypocrite for asking as none of our spam changes are visible yet (though some of the invisible ones are beginning to work), but I’d appreciate the assistance if you can.

    Thanks!… BTW – That was quick. I’m surprised to see tools show up this quickly.

  • When visiting a blog/site that has the MBL member widget… would it be possible to implement a feature that allows you to determine if you are already a contact of that site creator/author?
    Something that differentiates your image from the others. Indicating whether or not you are a contact or have joined their community.

    Could this also work with the other images that are there? (shows how many of the visitors are contacts of that author and /or your contact as well)

    This could be as simple as a check mark that appears when I hover over the image. Similar to the red X that I see.

    I don’t know if this is feasible or not. I would assume that it is.(anything is possible online)

    Cool! Thanks for the tips. I wondered how in the heck I was going to keep tabs on everyone – you’ve answered my own question. Later.

  • andrew wee says:

    Great set of tools, Michael.

    I think if you added maybe more analytics to it, it could easily be converted into a paid service.

  • jewellery says:

    I like it when a company can admit that it has made a mistake. By putting the “lost tools” out there, it makes it look like the company is continuing to work toward improving their product. But the only thing that bothers me is that other companies are starting to this by planning in advance of things to leave out that they can release at a slowed pace. By doing this, they try to make it look like they are working for us. But all the time they are working for themselves. But they usually make us pay for these upgrades or patches that are to improve something they left out. When a company does it for free, it makes it seem like they are trying to work for us and not for themselves only. Keep up the good work guys. Thanks for the help.

  • The Compare Blog Visitors tool is really interesting. When we employed this to some of our blogs, we were able to track the likes, dislikes and what interests our visitors. This is really a helpful tool for us.

    I also made a small tool to ease the customization of the MyBlogLog widget:
    Preview of colors on real widget, and unrestricted colors to pick up.

  • It is really helpful to all SEO’s.
