Adding a Cluster Map

16/01/2011

A cluster map shows locations of visitors to your site.  The children in school are very excitied when the dots on the map increase and they are keen to see where our readers are from.  It lends itself well in a primary school setting for further discussion about language, time differences, IT resources etc.

To add this to your blog, you need to:

sign up with clustrmaps  http://www.clustrmaps.com/getone.php

insert a text widget on your blog, then copy and paste the html code that clustrmaps give you into your text widget.

Hope this is helpful – it worked for me and has been so useful on my school blog.  I had to rethink the steps for this learning bytes blog, as once you have it working, you don’t need to touch it again.  Please note, after 12 months, clustrmaps reset the visitor dots, but you do get a notification so you can save a copy before your map is reset.
