Chandu Thota, the BlogMap creator, had done another great job in coming up with FeedMap BlogExplorer!
Now, you can submit your blog's location accurately (decently accurate) using the FeedMap BlogExplorer!.
Go to FeedMap BlogExplorer!: http://www.feedmap.net/blogexplorer/
Right-Click on your location and click on "Add a Blog" menu item.You still need to have a valid RSS and ATOM feed though.kuancheen|munich|20050814.1130
For BlogDrive bloggers, please start here.kuancheen|munich|20050815.1720
BEFORE attempting anything, please first read through the steps below..
** The following tips are for GENERALLY intended for blogs hosted on blogspot.com ( | blogger.com) and in the area of Subang Jaya, Selangor :) **
Step 1: Get a blog
(obvious, but not technically neccessary)
To get yourself blogmap'd first of all you need a blog!
Step 2: Get a geo-tag
The next step is to insert geo-tags of the following format with into your web page's header tag, i.e. between <HEAD></HEAD> in your blog HTML code block.
<meta name="ICBM" content="[latitude], [longitude]" />
<meta name="geo.position" content="[latitude];[longitude]" />
Like i mentioned on my previous post, the [latitude] and [longitude] tags holds the value of your current location in decimal degree coordinate values.
Typically, i will insert it after the <$BlogMetaData$> which you will find in your Blogger's Edit Template section.
For Subang Jaya bloggers you can use this
<meta name="ICBM" content="3.07755, 101.59000" />
<meta name="geo.position" content="3.07755;101.59000" />
Check out my previous post for some suggestion to find other coordinates. Or check out the links below: -
Before you proceed, make sure you save the changes and republish your blog. (you can choose republish index only)
Step 3: Get registered
The third step is to get your blog registered.
Go to the BlogMap blog submit page.
At the "Enter your blog (or feed) url" textbox, enter your blog address e.g. "http://kuancheen.blogspot.com".
Then click "Submit Blog!"
Step 4: Get a badge!
If you have been successful up till now ...
CONGRATULATIONS! You have been BlogMap'd
Now, that you have been blogmap'd i am sure you want to display it on your blog.
After a successful registration in the previous step, you will be directed to a page that gives you the code to be inserted into your blog to display your blogmap.
At the "Adding BlogMap to Your Blog" section, Copy paste the following html source to display your blogmap badge.
It should look like something like this
Copy this an paste it where you want it to appear on your blog (which, in my case, i placed it on my sidebar)
Finally, republish your side voilà!
Hope that this have been helpful, all the best!
