Wiki-Blogger Needed

I think now that Google decided to close knol as an independent Google product with a slogan Knol is not a blog. It is appropriate that it gives the knol platform to blogger and call it as wiki-blogger. The url of the knols can be changed to http://wiki.blogspot.com. While scientific journals like PLOS may not be interested in being part of wikiblogger and hence will go many of the authors would be happy to go to Wiki-blogger. I think the Google will notice the idea if more knol authors are in favor of it.

Knol authors have to make the suggestion and advocate it vigorously. As a Wikiblogger, the platform will get the support of millions of bloggers. Actually bloggers were offended when Knol was started with the slogan Knol is not a blog implying bloggers are not welcome on Knol.

Change it to Wikiblogger and give it Blogger management. Wikiblogging and mobile blogging are the modern tools and Blogger has to offer both to its members.

Interesting SEO Suggestions for Bloggers and Knollers

In the site SEOBook, that supports The Blogger's Guide to SEO - by Aaron & Giovanna Wall, the authors have written that SEO methods are different for bloggers. They need to build a reader base and trust. They have to be more visible in the blogosphere.

Bloggers guide to SEO

The knol that Aaron Wall posted which was referred to in the above blog post was reshared by me in http://knolshare.blogspot.com/ with the name SEO Basics - Search Engine Optimization Made Easy - Reshared Knol

Beginning of Active Sharing of Creative Commons License Knols

Knol provided the option of specifying various types of content sharing licenses to provide options to authors. Why authors specify creative commons 3.0 license? They specify the license to facilitate sharing of their content on various other blogs and websites. If no blogger or webmaster used the creative commons license content on their blogs and websites, the objective behind specifying creative commons is not attained. Knol authors have to proactively inform bloggers to share their content on through their blogs.

An initiative to promote active sharing of creative commons knols was launched by me. It facilitates locations of creative commons knols and also provides a format to blogger. Of course bloggers have more expertise in their activity and can share the information in their own way.

Some knols reshared today.

The blog Google Knols Reshared contains various knols with creative commons which are shared by me.

Knol Completing Three Years of Public Operations

Knol is open to everyone announcement was made on Google on 27.7.2008

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2008/07/knol-is-open-to-everyone.html

On 27.7.2011, Knol will complete three years and start its fourth year of operations.

What has Knol achieved?

Many professors, professionals, corporate executives, business owners, authors and students contributed on Knol many learning materials. There are research papers published by scientists in some of the subjects as online research journals were started some organizations on Knol.

Apart from the education category there are many other categories like business, entertainment, music and shopping on Knol, There are many knols in these categories also.

Google has not managed this platform actively. It is acting as a passive provider of technology platform. Authors also could not come up with alternate ways of promoting the platform. But authors were very active in contributing 600,000 knols so far. There are at least 50,000 knols with 500 or more page views. There is good scope now to promote this good content by authors and get around 250,000 page views. Add another 350,000 page views from the remaining 550,000 knols, Knol can have 600,000 page views per day which is a good performance. It can increase to one million page views per day very quickly and one million page views per day is very respectable figure for any website.

Good days ahead for Knol

July 2011 - Start of Fourth Year of Knol Public Operations

In July 2011, Knol completes its third year of public operations and starts its fourth year.

Made an appeal to fellow authors to promote and grow Knol.

Objective of Knol - Highlighted

The Objective

To increase number of Online Authors and make more content (Knowledge) available to people.

There are millions of people who possess useful knowledge that they would love to share, and there are billions of people who can benefit from it. We believe that many do not share that knowledge today simply because it is not easy enough to do that. The challenge posed to us by Larry, Sergey and Eric was to find a way to help people share their knowledge. This is our main goal. Udi Manber in (Source: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/12/encouraging-people-to-contribute.html )

The goal is for knols to cover all topics, from scientific concepts, to medical information, from geographical and historical, to entertainment, from product information, to how-to-fix-it instructions. Google will not serve as an editor in any way, and will not bless any content. All editorial responsibilities and control will rest with the authors. We hope that knols will include the opinions and points of view of the authors who will put their reputation on the line. Anyone will be free to write. For many topics, there will likely be competing knols on the same subject. Competition of ideas is a good thing.

10 Million Page Knol Authors Will Emerge

Knol has already 5 million page views knol author.

Search Link for the list of top viewed authors.

There are actually 7 one million page views authors.

Narayana Rao K.V.S.S. is presently the number one individual English language author.
The global top author is a Korean author. Then there is Hungarian author. Ehowknol is an organization.

Will Johnson, an English language author is presently having 65,000 page views per week and at this rate he can over take Narayana Rao in two or three months.

The Korean author will reach 10 million page views in a year. There are authors on other article writing platform with 10 million page views and on Knol also many authors will emerge with 10 million page views.

Such a view is expressed by Narayana Rao in a knol article also.

10 (Ten) Million Page Views Knol Authors

Knol has traction and it is succeeding

Friday, February 18, 2011

Million Page Views in a day for Knol - Will Happen Shortly

A search on Google shows that on Knol now there are 800,000 entries. Those entries may include comments also. Every day around 1000 new knols are being posted. A recent search showed that that there are around 10,000 knols with 1000 page views are more in English language. A similar number will be there in all other languages combined. From this, we can estimate that there will 50,000 knols with 500 page views for more. These interesting knols will keep increasing with 1000 new knols being posted every day.

http://knol.google.com/k/narayana-rao-k-v-s-s/knol-search-directory-of-interesting/2utb2lsm2k7a/3948#

These page views for interesting knols can be increased to 5 per knol with proper marketing by authors. On Knol, so far, authors have not taken up marketing efforts. They simply posted and left them for attracting visitors on their own. But if proper sharing links efforts are put in visitors will increase. Knol authors will realize this and put in more efforts. There are now authors on Knol with 500 knols having 1000 page views or more.

http://knol.google.com/k/narayana-rao-k-v-s-s/knol-has-traction-authors-with-useful/2utb2lsm2k7a/3935#

These authors' successes will be noticed by other knol authors.



Knol is likely to accumulate a million articles (actual articles excluding comments) in one year hence. If ten percent of the articles get 5 page views per each, the first 100,000 article will get 500,000 page views, the next 200,000 articles can get 200,000 page views and the next 700,000 articles can get 300,000 page views giving one million page views per day per Knol. This is shortly going to happen.
