Here is a quick roundup of tweaks and upgrades to eHarmony Blog in the past few months.
- OpenID – In case you missed the previous announcement, eHarmony Blog accepts OpenID logins. If you have OpenID, you can post articles instantly, without additional registration.
- Recent Reads – Instead of bombarding you with site articles that we want you to read, why not just tell you what other people have been reading…?
- Recent readers of this page also read – this suggests previous “browser referers” to subsequent readers.
- What Others Recently Read – The majority of our readers come from search engines, finding us while researching eHarmony or looking for tips and help. WORR shows this perfectly. Consequently, popular articles never leave the list.
- What eHarmony.com, Inc. Recently Read – Our VIP audience is, of course, those from the eHarmony offices. WEIRR shows what articles have eHarmony employees been interested lately. So far, WEIRR has proven two things:
- Want to get the instant readership attention from eHarmony? Post an article in eHB. Our eArrmony article, posted at 4pm PST, proved this.
- Do customer criticism, complaints and suggestions fall on deaf ears? Absolutely not. eHarmony listens closely and seeks to improve; eHarmony just almost never comments or replies, that’s all. For example, after Pyke’s criticism of the subject lines in the “new match” notifications, they brought the old one back.
- Email addresses are secured – We altered the blogging software slightly so that only Editors can see the IP address and email addresses of our writers and commentators. Frankly, dear, WEIRR made us do it.
- WPTouch – eHarmony Blog is fashionable and fast on the iPhone and iPod. It automatically uses a site theme designed for the device. Try it when you get the chance.
We welcome your feedback.
