    Hi,

    I am an avid Search Engine Land reader and I really like all the features and articles that are posted.

    I am the owner and webmaster of a small website which I am constantly working ion improving and was wondering if anyone could be so kind as to share with me how I could implement a “Share Box” as is on SEL’s site today.

    Any assistance with this will be certainly appreciated.

    If you would like to direct msg me at Twitter I would be glad to fwd my email address in private msg’ing.

    Thank you all so much

    Great job on the new design SEL Team!

    Danny – We recently implemented the facebook commenting system on select posts on our blog (blog.pinkcakebox.com) and are generally are pleased with it. Here are some of the positives we’ve seen:

    - Increased quality of comments
    - Less spam
    - Slight uptick in number of comments (partially due to two way synch with Facebook)
    - Increase in referrers from Facebook by 20 to 30%. Facebook is now one of our top 5 referrers

    Cons:
    - Still no twitter or google profile integration (should be coming)
    - As you mentioned comments stored at facebook (although through the API you could pull them into your database)
    - Moderation panel isn’t as user friendly when compared to WordPress moderator panel

    Danny, congratulations on the new site. It looks great, great new features.

    One complaint? SEL has always been, and remains, one of the slowest loading websites on the planet. Not sure whether it’s underpowered hardware, or indexing, or lack of compression, or the pages are too heavy (mostly with ads). We frequent visitors would appreciate a bit more zip.

    Hi Danny

    Great work on the redesign it looks great, just one question, what plugin if any did you use for the homepage’s thumbnail flipbox?

    Thanks

    @George – we absolutely agree! It’s not that we didn’t think about it in the design tweak, because it’s absolutely something we’ve kept in mind as we did it, it just didn’t quite get all implemented with the initial rollout – Michelle is very focused on the speed optimization for the rest of the week, so expect to see that improve greatly – part of that is redoing how the ads are delivered.
