      Hi Ab_Cooldude,

      You could add any url of your website in yahoo siteexplorer. I have updated all sites in the yahoo.

      Good point about blogger, google like it. But you still need to do the seo things to get better rankings. You need too add html tag alt, title for the images. Write long title to reach more audience.

      Thanks for the comment !

      cool article! But why only Blogger URL?

      And one more question- Does having a blog on Google's Blogger increases our visibility on Google Search?
