You can now chat with your Blog or Website Visitors, Traditional way of chatting with the visitors of blog from webmasters is by placing a “Shout Box” on the Blog(I will use Blog as default platform here as I am a blogger). A shout box is a online application in which anyone inside the blog can leave a line in the chat box on the sidebar(usually).
Many of the people online doesn’t like this method of conversation just for the reason that it is not a private chat, Everyone’s chat message will be displayed on a single window.
But Yahoo recently developed a new online application for webmasters to chat with their visitors online. They can chat with your as a guest ,The installation of the application on your blog is really easy.
Just visit http://messenger.yahoo.com/pingbox/ and create a new Ping box for your blog by using some easy steps.
You can also customize the Pingbox as per your needs and looks. After creating a Yahoo Pingbox for your website/blog follow the easy steps to set up the Ping box on your blog. where ever you need. It will be good if you use it below your contact us form, or else good to be on a new page having a title “chat Online with the webmaster”.
You can use your Yahoo messenger to chat with the visitors, I prefer you to use Nimbuzz.com application to come online on yahoo, gtalk, Facebook, hives etc at the same time and inside the same app. It is available in both Mobile and PC versions.
