MyBlogLog allows people to identify themselves by their MyBlogLog icons and broadcast their presence on websites and blogs. Each MyBlogLog member has a public profile.

This mashup will allow you to track MyBlogLog (MBL) members who visit your site and add a little MyBlogLog icon next to their name on ClickTale's 'visitors' page. You can then click the icon to go directly to their profile.

The ClickTale/MyBlogLog mashup is a great way to get to know your visitors.

Your site doesn't need to be registered with MBL to use it.

Instructions

  1. Add
    <script src="http://cdn.clicktale.net/ct_mbl.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    after the line that looks like

    <script src="http://cdn.clicktale.net/WRe.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    in the existing ClickTale script on you pages.
  2. Add
    ctSaveMBLVisitor();

    after the line that reads

    ClickTale([your project ID],[your ratio]);

For example

Before

<!-- ClickTale -->
<div id="ClickTale" style="display: none;"></div>
<script src="http://cdn.clicktale.net/WRe.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
if(typeof ClickTale=='function')
{
   ClickTale([your project ID],[your ratio]);
}
</script>
<!-- ClickTale end -->

After

<!-- ClickTale -->
<div id="ClickTale" style="display: none;"></div>
<script src="http://cdn.clicktale.net/WRe.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://cdn.clicktale.net/ct_mbl.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
if(typeof ClickTale=='function')
{
   ClickTale([your project ID],[your ratio]);
   ctSaveMBLVisitor();
}
</script>
<!-- ClickTale end -->

Note: If you already use the MBL widget to display recent readers, make sure to include the widget before including the bottom ClickTale script.
