Yahoo is shutting down MyBlogLog, a service acquired by the company a few years ago, that lets you see who’s been visiting your blog. It’s been known for quite some time that it would happen, but users received an email today setting the date. It said: 

You have been identified as a customer of Yahoo! MyBlogLog. We will officially discontinue Yahoo! MyBlogLog effective May 24, 2011. Your agreement with Yahoo!, to the extent that it applies to the Yahoo! MyBlogLog, will terminate on May 24, 2011.

After May 24, 2011 your credit card will no longer be charged for premium services on MyBlogLog. We will refund you the unused portion of your subscription, if any. The refund will appear as a credit via the billing method we have on file for you. To make sure that your billing information is correct and up to date, visit https://billing.yahoo.com.

Cloudspace developed MyBlogLog in 2005, and in early 2007, it was acquired by Yahoo for over 10 million dollars.

    Yahoo to Shut Down MyBlogLog

  • http://www.bloggersunite.org tony berkman

    inally! Yahoo is realizing that they should acknowledge the fact that they do have resposnibilities to bloggers on their network.
    There was no mention of encouraging bloggers to do anything before bloggersunite.org and blogcatalog.com started pressuring Yahoo “to sit down at the table” and discuss a sale or some other transaction.
    The mybloglog page did not even thank bloggers for their participation in the network. Now Yahoo is backtracking with Yahoo 360 is replacing MyBlogLog. The fact is it is not.
    360 is their larger attempt at becoming a social media player. The blogging niche is seen as too small to them, from my perspective. Yet what they fail to realize is that according to a Blogger Study conducted by the head of New Media at George Washington University on behalf of blogcatalog.com, bloggers join 7.2 times more social networks than compared to the average user.
    I believe Yahoo’s actions are shameful, show lack of respect to bloggers whose information they have farmed for years, while giving the minimum amount of effort back, and they are shutting down MyBlogLog for 360. It’s good old fashioned spin and bloggers are much brighter than Yahoo gives them credit.
    Here’s the email that went out to all BloggersUnite.org members http://mim.io/5fe8f
