  1. Brother meri samasya ka hal kijiye Please……
    Jab mai disqus ko blog per lagata hoon to baad me ye msg. deta hai.
    “” DISQUS seems to be taking longer than usual. Reload?
    We were unable to load Disqus. If you are a moderator please see our troubleshooting guide.””

    Kya problem ho sakti hai.

  2. Keywords कितने शब्दोँ तक होना चाहिए और नीचे जो कोड हैँ उसे क्या उपर वाले कोड के बाद लगाना हैँ थोडी कन्फिँयूजन हैँ नीचे वाले कोड को लेकर

    • दूसरा कोड वह है जिसमें बताया गया है कि ऊपर दिये कोड को कैसे प्रयोग करें…

  3. इसे प्रयोग करने पर क्या सर्च इंजन पर अच्छे परिणाम मिँलेगे आपने तीन चार Keyword डालेँ हैँ इसकी लिमिट कितनी हैँ क्या 20से 30शब्द डाल सकतेँ हैँ ।

    • पहले कीवर्ड के आधार पर ही सर्च इंजन काम करते थे लेकिन अब कीवर्ड वो खुद आपकी पोस्ट पढ़कर क्राल करते हैं, इसलिए अब इनकी कोई आवश्यकता नहीं रह गयी है। यदि फिर भी प्रयोग की इच्छा हो तो 10 कीवर्ड तक ही रखो।

      • थैक्स For riplay … मुझे लगता हैँ यह सबसे अत्याधुनिक मेटा टेग हैँ ।

        • @वरूण, ये बहुत ही पुराना मेटा टैग फ़ार्मेट है जिसका उपयोग रिसर्च जनर्ल्स द्वारा किया जाता है, ये ब्लॉगरों के लिए नहीं है। Blogger पर पहले से ही का मेटाडेटा होता है इसलिए अतिरिक्त मेटा इंफ़ार्मेशन ही आवश्यकता कम होती है।

  4. Thank you, Vinay. The information is really valuable. Not only that, you presented it so simply that even a novice like me finds it easy to understand and use Dublin Core now.
    Thank you again! :)
