Please give your blog keyword/phrases lists for new browse


Getting closer to release a new way to browse blogs that is based on keywords. Sure, we already have a search form but it has one drawback in that many people don't know what to search for when wanting to "browse" blog posts.

The new way needs your help. Want to get a list of popular phrases that people might look for when looking through blogs - given this list, whenever a post matches one, we can automatically tag it to show up when someone searches for that phrase. I already found the 4000 most common words used by bloggers but as they are too generic (e.g., thoughts, love, passion, lips, pleasure, couples), they don't reflect the wider nature of our blogs here.

What we need is a long list of 1,2,3 word phrases that you'd be interested in seeing in a page that if you clicked on them, you'd get the most relevant posts on that "topic". Just come up with a big list and post it in this thread. I'll combine them and tag all the posts to see what it looks like. New posts by bloggers would automatically get tagged if they contain any word in this list. After going live, we'll get your feedback on how it works. Thanks!

Can't you already do that using the current search feature? I know I can plug in a word or phrase and blogs containing that will come up. Or do you mean a list of keywords we have to stick at the bottom of our blog posts, for searches, like in large political forums?


Andrew replies on 3/21/2006 10:49 am:
Yes, the current search works for some things - this
will automatically categorize posts according to
content. That is, if you have a phrase in your post,
the post will be categorized under that phrase. We'll
see how it works compared to search.

What about the member handles? Since many of my searches are done by tha handle of a member when a friend tells me about another members Blog.


Andrew replies on 3/21/2006 10:49 am:
Yes, I want to create a different search just for
handles (current search form looks for matching
handles, title, and post content). It's also too
slow

There is also the optional "Mood List" that might be a good idea too.

Also, what about members that create Blogs like GoddesofTheDawn that give tips and advice or suggestions with the use of the html tags; in addition, I too have a few things in my Blog that is for giving new members advice on how to be succesful with what they are looking for from this site (Sex partners, friends, LTR's, and also what to be careful of as well) from my over 6 years experiences.

How about: Advice, Tips, Suggestions, Experience, Members Advice on Success, Members Tips, Members Tips on Success, Members Advice on HTML, Members tips on using Tags, Members Experiences on the site, Member Suggestions, How to, How to find a fuck buddy, How to get laid, How to find a sex partner, What to be careful of, etc...

Perhaps a general content tag. Bloggers tend to focus on topics as a theme.

Is the intended result of the meta file to assist members on AdultFriendFinder to locating blogs or is it to connect us to other sites as well and or places on the internet where we are not aware that we are being published and exposed without knowing we are there? What are we being linked to in the big picture?

I believe that the polls belong in the magazine, by the way, not in the blogs. The blogs are about the blogger blogging...writing..not just posting a poll.

AdultFriendFinder have added many new things and yet one needs to be a computer person to be able to do them all. SexyFit and Goddess of the Dawn have helped so much in what they post as to the *how to's*...
Making things *user friendly* serves in a big way as time is a precious thing.

Just a little food for thought.............

Please check out my Thoughts about polls.

The only goal of the list is to make it easier to link between one post and another (just an alternative browsing method). It look s as if I'll just come up with a list and try it out

Andrew replies on 3/21/2006 11:49 am:
Regarding search engines linking to posts, most blog sites allow search engines to index their posts so it can be found. I understand that some bloggers want only to be seen by registered members on this site. We are currently trying to spec out a system to give the blogger more control (something most other blog sites don't do).

Exactly. I stopped writing about ANYthing sexual in nature in my blog because of that very thing. I'm on sites I didn't even know existed!

The polls seem to be getting madly abused in blogging - I like them on the discussion boards though.

On a side note Mr.CEO, Sir....it's great that so much effort is being put into improving the site but when are efforts going to be put into the discussion boards as well as the blogs? And if this is the wrong forum, I apologize ahead of time - point me in the right direction and I'll be there The pro-bloggers have got THIS one covered! lol

Sin like you mean it!


Andrew replies on 3/21/2006 11:47 am:
Another programmer/team will be working on groups in the upcoming weeks. I personally have been working on the blog code as bloggers are really helpful at giving feedback and seem to be more open to test things out.

phrases are difficult as just one word different, or derivation different, or order different or misspelled can render them useless .. i suggest words only, of course more than one from the list makes it stronger. Likelyhood of "exact" phrase is extremely remote (i.e. i really like doing women ... i like doing pussy ... i like women etc etc ... etc, etc)

All derivations would be great i.e. suck = sucking, sucker, sucked, or oral? etc. Caps of course irrelevant please.

The "category" idea, additionally, not as instead of search, I think is great also, so long as it is constantly updated based on input from bloggers.

Just reviewing blog post content for key phrases might be difficult to truly capture the essence.
Some are doing political commentary. News items. Marital issues. Sex education. General Sexploits. General Silliness.
Asking folks to categorize each post as an option like mood might help. With the ability to select more than one.
But that may be asking a lot. And it certainly won't be consistent. And might be open for abuse. Just like, even though in fun, people put "sex, sex, sex" in the title and then indicated "thought that would get your attention" and the post is about something else entirely.
You have a tough job with this.
Call up the guys at google and license their algorithms. And send our fees through the roof. lol.
Good luck.

I know this isn't the appropriate place for this, but as I have tried eMailing AFFland and have gotten no response, and there isn't another BLOG post by you which seemed apropos, I decided this posting is as good a place as I'm going to find.

I have been unable to add photos to my albums for weeks. I have tried every format and pixel width, including file size. Nothing works! I keep getting what appears to be an upload and then I am redirected to "login", which I have tried and it still doesn't give me a posted photo. I have also tried uploading any number of the "same exact photos" I already have in my albums and they won't load either. So I have concluded it is not an issue with me, but rather the site's photo handling procedures.

Since I am a paying member and I intend on continuing to be one, I thought maybe you might be able to get my complaint directed to someone in the company who might just be able to spend enough time (in between upgrades, of course) to eMail me back with at least an explanation, if not a solution?

Andrew replies on 3/21/2006 11:56 am:
I fowarded your post to a developer who is working on some new things with the albums (for groups). He'll check out to see what's going on.

It would actually help if you could link to the blogs with only a partial "handle". For instance...if you typed in Goddess...it would give you the list of handles with that in it. Or even "angel". Sometimes you hear of a good blogger...or you kind of remember someone you want to visit again...but you can't remember the entire handle. Like "Highpockets"....and you forget the following numbers in his handle. Would that be a possibility?

Kate...

I have a total of 20 photos in two albums - most of which are tpically under 50K filesize (though a few are larger) and less than 400px wide. I know there are any number of "standard" members with substantially more photos of apparently larger size. So, I would not suspect I have hit a limit, although it's possible. Does that help? (And no... they're not of me - just BLOG posting photos which are easier for people to see than are the thumbnails.)

Luvpump...

Thanks! I truly appreciate it. You are a gentleman AND a scholar... and I shall make an effort to tell everyone so!

I made a reference to google before in jest. But they do have a search current site command. For example

site:AdultFriendFinder.com/blog lesbian encounter

seemed to work

In general are there prebuilt tools that can be integrated with anyones web site to do specific searches with customized results screens to maintain the look and feel of the web site? Would this save time if the tool already has some sort of logic to look for things similar to the search term and phrases which soft of mean the same thing?
Just trying to think of ideas.

Some keywords I thought of, but I doubt they're what you're looking for, even though a number of bloggers write on these subjects.

politics; politics of sex; gay marriage; marriage; religion; religion and sex; NeoCons; government in the bedroom; religious right; contraception; reproductive rights; reproductive rights in America; feminism; sex and feminism; freedom of speech.

All of these are written about and all have a bearing on our sex lives and the freedom to use sites like this, especially when states are having to pass laws telling pharmacists they must fill prescriptions for contraceptives. I don't think they're categories to be overlooked. Especially since we know the more sexual keywords will be abused, especially by those who already use their blogs as an extension of their profiles.

Andrew,

What about a cgi search form that has a dropdown list of options to filter the search from the dbase. i.e. one drop down list box with types of topics of Blogs and with a Blogger (Handle) search and the other through user input of keywords (meta tags) or phrases typed by the user with the submit button (standard search form). I know there are Cgi scripts that can do this and only search through the database within the site; in addition, it should also keep web crawlers like Goog.., MS* and Yah** from searching through meta tags on the Bloggers Blogs if the tags are in the Cgi database if I am not mistaken.

1) separate the polls. just separate them.

2) searching - if we don't already have the ability to do a wildcard, that would be really helpful. maybe we do and I'm not aware of it. but like if I wanted to search for you and wasn't sure of the handle, I could put in something like %pump or something like that.

Thanks for doing all this, btw

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

I was just thinking... Why not just keep it as simple as possible and just use a category list of "Moods" and "Topics" in a drop down list with hyperlinks; in addition, let the postings be sorted by most recent date posted. Pretty much after looking at the various topics and moods, the meta tags and search on those keywords are not needed.

There is already a search form for Blog postings by meta tags. I think more people would be interested in simplicity by a category listing.

This is just an example below with the use of the table (not allowed to use form radio buttons, buttons, and list boxes in postings So I did the best I could) of what in my opinion all that would be needed (basically the "Topics" would be the same as how the magazine section is separated and organized.).

Nick

Example: (Pretend the table is 2 List Boxes) In addition, List Boxes would consolidate room on the Blog Home page.

I forgot to add that the Blogger would have a drop down list to choose from for what Topic category they wish their Blog entry be listed in at time of posting; in addition, the Blogger’s posting would be time and date stamped, so when a reader decides to use the drop down list on the Blog home page the recent Blog postings would be listed first by date and time posted (BOF-EOF done by date and time). Also could consider having another option of choosing week of posting in the fields too.

Keeping it simple, what about searching on Titles? If you looked up "horny" for example every blog with that word in the Title would list. The Titles would contain the "keywords" or subject matter of the blog. This could crimp the style of some most popular bloggers who get hundreds of views no matter what they post but it might force a more level playing field for the rest of us who have to post a catchy title in order to attract any viewers.

I like DreamLover's idea but it might only work with another drop down box and everyone doesn't use the one that's there.
