      This is a very simple and neat bookmark let which adds an audio/video bar on top of your Google+ stream.  For now the following channels are available, Amazing Radio, DFH Radio, Groove shark, BBC News and TWiT live stream options.


    Facebook Friends Exporter

     The most controversial chrome extension which exports all your Facebook friends to Google Contacts which helps you get all your friends in your ‘Friends’ Circle easily. Being very useful for all those who plan to move from Facebook to Google+, Facebook somehow managed to block its use all over thus making the developer Mohamed Mansour to work on it again and make it work.



     Google+ Photo Zoom

    Just move your mouse over the image and +Photo Zoom would do its work. Images are posted in fixed size on Google+ and there is no way you could zoom those and check them if needed. So this is a very simple chrome extension which allows you to zoom any photo published on your stream. 




    This website lets you connect to your Facebook account, after which all your Facebook photos and albums will be migrated over to Google’s Picasa service.  Once moved to Picasa, they are practically on Google+ making your job to move from Facebook to Google+ much more easy.


    Google+ Vanity URL

    Sharing your profile with anyone is difficult, Google+ profiles are linked via the profile id which is a long number. This gets annoying when you have to type in your Google+ profile link anywhere. An official vanity url might come but till then we have this simple web app to make it easy.




    The notifications on Google+ are amazing, but to actually have them pop up on your browser, you need to be on one of the Google websites. Making this more easy and helping Google+ get more addictive, this chrome extension lets you access your notifications and make a new post anywhere on internet.  So, this extension lets you check, read, comment and share without actually visiting any Google website.




     Just like twitter, socialstatistics tracks all the Google+ users and analyses all the present users. The site claims Mark Zuckerberg is the most followed person on Google+ i.e. he's  most of the user Circles. Go check it out, it’s a fun website and would let you follow so awesome people on Google+ which you are missing.

Blogger allows you to only delete comments and not edit them, also on the post page all comments will show whether you like it or not. Major benefit is that it allows you to send pings and trackback to other sites when you mention about them in your posts.


    Imageshack provides an excellent interface to take care of your free image hosting needs. Maybe it is this the fastest way to host an image on the web.

    It allows you to claim your blog in this huge blogosphere and allows you to put an excellent Technorati search on your blog. Create and add a Technorati profile. The best part is that whenever someone mentions or links to any page of your blog, Technorati knows and a search for your blog on Technorati shows exactly how many sites link to which pages of your blog and when they were added with a small description.


    It gives much more detailed statistics and the counter is totally invisible and free totally till you start getting large traffic, when you need to pay. But the disadvantage is that both of these track the last 100 visitors only, while another free service Extreme Tracking tracks them all… but you statistics cannot be made private.


    Feedblitz quickly allows your blog visitors to subscribe by email to your new posts. It keeps your subscribers informed of new posts. It allows them to unsubscribe easily also. They just have to enter their email. You decide which page opens after they press Subscribe. A quick confirmatory email to them and they get 1 email daily with all your new posts.

    It opens a new concept of Moblogging i.e. blogging by your mobile phone. When you send text or photos from your mobile device to they’re automatically posted to your new blog page.


    It helps you get confirmed traffic to your blog. The principle is simple, for every 2 blogs you visit, one visitor comes to you and you visit other peoples blogs and they visit yours.  This is very good if you are new blogger and have hardly any traffic. Definitely try the Rent a Blog advertising swap service.

    Google Adsense and Search

    When you take all effort to write for a blog, why not optimize it to make some money. Let users search for good posts in your blog. And now it even helps to monetize you feeds.

    Creative Commons

    It offers a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors and artists.
