Tyner Blain can now be viewed thru the Google Toolbar!
In the top of the sidebar (on the right) is a link to automatically add Tyner Blain to your Google Toolbar. As of today, it is only supported for IE users, but Google is now a supporter of firefox, so they’ll be adding support for custom toolbar buttons soon.
Who are we doing this for?
- Windows users who read Tyner Blain outnumber Mac + Linux readers (combined) by ten to one.
- Over 30% of Tyner Blain’s readers use Internet Explorer
- According to Forrester, only 6% of internet users use RSS
- Fewer than 10% of Tyner Blain’s traffic is thru RSS feeds
- Note: Firefox tips at the end of this post!
How does it work?
There are two things you get – first, easy access to the most recent posts (including a short synopsis), and second – the ability to search Tyner Blain for keywords, text, categories or whatever.
How do we install it (in 4 clicks or less)?
- First, click on the link in the sidebar
- Google may ask you to install the latest toolbar – if they do, click on the link shown here
- Then select “Add” from the dialog that Google presents
- Confirm that the Tyner Blain button has been installed
- That’s it. 4 clicks. 3 if you have the toolbar already installed.
But I don’t use IE
Then subscribe to the RSS feed -> Copy the URL from any of the links in the red box and add it to your newsreader. Do this by right-clicking on the link, then copy the link location in firefox (or copy shortcut in IE), then paste it into your RSS reader
Or – use the firefox Livelinks capability to create a dynamic shortcut in firefox
Or – if your newsreader autodiscovers a feed from a website, just enter http://tynerblain.com/blog – the newsreader will find it for you.
Subscribe and enjoy!
