We love Technorati Stats tools. Many of bloggers might know them already, but we think we should mention it on BlogPerfume once just in case someone has missed them.We always see which blogs are linking to BlogPerfume by checking our Technorati Authority.

Technorati Authority is the number of blogs linking to a website in the last six months. It is important to note that they measure the number of blogs, rather than the number of links. So, if a blog links to your blog many times, it still only count as +1 toward your authority.

You can check your Technorati with the following URL.

  • http://technorati.com/blogs/YourBlogURL?reactions

You can always check the number of posts by day about your blog in a period of time easily on a Technorati Chart as well.

  • technorati.com/chartimg?q=YourBlogURL&days=3600&width=460&height=200&type=url

Just simply change the YourBlogURL to your blog address (without http://). You can also specify the days, width and height as well. How many links have you got? What is your Technorati Authority?

My Top Commentators is a plugin that allows a blogger to discover who are the most active commentators on his blog (via the WordPress Dashboard, so other people will not see this information). You can also use different time frames for this, so you can see the top commentators: Today, Yesterday, Last 7 days,This month, Last month, This year, Last year.

Secondly, you can also see all the comments left by a single person, and edit or delete them via the plugin interface. People that comment often on your blog are your most loyal readers, so it would be useful to know exactly who they are.

The idea of BuddyPress is to take a standard vanilla installation of WordPress MU and turn it into something that represents more of a community building tool, or niche social network. BuddyPress is essentially a set of WordPress MU specific plugins. Each plugin adds a distinct feature (or component) to BuddyPress and only handles functionality for that specific component (for example, private messaging). The standard features of BuddyPress are:

Extended Profiles

The extended profile component allows site admins to create specific profile fields for their members to fill in. They can create as few or as many profile fields as they like, be as specific or vague as they want. Profile fields can then be grouped.

Personal Blog

This is everything WordPress has to offer for publishing a blog. The only difference is that all administration tabs will be moved underneath a “Blog” tab. A Member’s blog will also appear under “/membername/blog/” or /membername.domain.com/blog” rather than at the root.

Private Messaging

BuddyPress private messaging works like internal site email. Members can message people on their friends list as well as forward and reply to received messages.

Friends

Members of a BuddyPress social network can be connected together by one member adding another as a “friend” and then the other member accepting the friend request.

Groups

Groups in BuddyPress are a gathering of members, blog posts, photos and any other user generated content.

The Wire

This is a place where friends can come along and post to a members profile. This would be a short message and could include a picture and some basic HTML. The TinyMCE editor will be used to allow for basic formatting.

Status Updates

Status updates in BuddyPress will appear on a member’s profile page. A member can update their status as frequently as they want to. All status updates are logged in a member’s activity log.

Albums

Members of a BuddyPress installation will be able to create their own photo albums. These albums can be shared with friends and groups. Each member is given a certain amount of space, which can be set by the site administrator.

As each one is a separate plugin, there is no reason why site admins can’t pick and choose which components they want and don’t want. There is also no reason why additional components couldn’t be written, or other existing WordPress plugins be used alongside.
