Google has been a great help to the bloggers’ community for nearly a decade now. Be it Search analytics or Google AdSense, it has been helping them to gain visitors, monetize the website, finding interesting topics to post on their blogs etc. But, the newbie bloggers often find it difficult to find interesting topics to write on.
Apart from that, it is quite difficult for a new blogger to understand Google Analytics, Google Webmaster tools, and other keyword checker tool, while Blog Compass brings all of them together at one place, making the process very simple and easy.
Blog compass is an app that helps bloggers manage their site and find topics to write about. Blog Compass suggests trending topics based on your interests and posting history. You can track site stats, approve comments, and read tips for how to make your blog more successful all in one place. The app is compatible with WordPress and Blogger.com blogs.
Blog Compass sends you trending topic ideas based on your blog and your interests. It also tracks site views, moderate comments, and see when every post is visible on Google Search.
Let us have a look at the features of the new application that is in the Beta stage right now:
Easy to connect
Be it a WordPress website or a blog made on Google’s own blogger, on Blog Compass, it is quite easy to connect your website to the application. For Blogger, you can sign in directly using your Google profile and start managing your blog.
If you are on WordPress, you can connect your wordpress.com website just by logging in into the WordPress account. To connect your self-hosted blog, you have to install a WordPress Plugin called JetPack.
Easy to moderate
Now, you don’t need to login into your blog again and again to check the comments on your blog. The app shows all the comments you have at one place and gives you an easy access to all the moderation tools available.
Easy to Track the Activity
Blog Compass shows you how your blog is working in a very brief and informative way. Basically, it merges the Google Analytics with the necessary features from Google Webmaster tool to give you the statistics of your blog which includes, the total number of visitors, Source of Traffic, Most viewed posts etc.
Find interesting topics at a Glance
Like I mentioned before, it is an integrated tool. It integrates Google Trends with the application to provide you interesting topics, the topics you care about and what people are actually searching real time.
Badges to motivate you to write more
Apart from the productivity tools a blogger needs every day, it also provides a way to motivate new bloggers to write more and more by giving some badges and new challenges to earn more badges.
Currently, Blog Compass is in the beta stage and only available in India. I hope to see a Global version of it very soon.
