Keep (Links) Rolling Rolling Rolling

I'm trying out today. It's a nice 1-step/stop blog links manager. To add on Blogrolling to your blog, all it takes is just 1 line of code, to display all the links on your blog via Javascript/RSS/PHP/OPML.

Sign up was quick and no frills. All I had to do was to supply my email address, verify that I'm not using a fraud email address, and install the 1 line code. Customisation of the blogrolls is possible with CSS - always a big plus. Besides CSS customisation, the link can also be automatically sorted in random order or by priority, along with other preferences you can set. There appears to be some sort of a 'sorting trick' where the size of the links are sorted accordingly to their sizes. Nothing smart about it but it could be neat for the youngsters.

Blogrolling looks neat and simple to use. Most importantly there isn't any unsightly advertisements, just a small link back. Blogrolling sadly, does not support multiple link categories like the Wordpress folks are used to. Nevertherless, I'd say this is a good service. I'm using it anyway for now.

It's free at

BlogPatrol NO-GO! Same old story. Free real time blog statistics. Top and last referrer analysis. Search engine keywords analysis. Detailed visitor breakdown by operating system, screen resolution and browser. 7 days hourly and daily tracking.

But it'll take ages for you to track your statistics. Because your statistics page will be full of THEIR ADVERTISEMENTS, viewing your statistics will take donkey years because their advertisements have to load first. And they have at least 5 different advertisement blocks on each page. Nothing wrong with the way your stats graphs look, if you don't mind them looking shabbily and lazily done.

For their sample blog statistics page, I've highlighted those that have got NOTHING to do with your statistics. Well you decide, but I say Blogpatrol is a NO GO.
