A new version has been released. Get it at Greet Box v4.0
First want to thank Thaya Kareeson for his wonderful idea of WP Greet Box for WordPress.
I named it Blogger Greet Box.This plugin lets you show a different greeting message to your visitors depending on their referrer url. For example, when a Digg user clicks through from Digg, they will see a message reminding them to digg your post if they like it. Another example, when a visitor clicks through
from google search they will see a message suggesting them to subscribe to your RSS feed. Having
these targeted suggestions will help your blog increase exposure, loyal readership, and reader
interactionso all together it should increase your page hits.
Go to Google.com and search for search term like “Classic Tutorials” or “WP Greet Box for
blogger” and navigate to this site and you will see a message saying that you came from google.
Now try the same with yahoo search and see the message changes.
1)Show a different greeting message to your visitor depending on the referrer URL.
2)Beautiful set of icons.
3)Greeting message can be inserted any where but better to use on the top as shown in classic
4)Shows a default greeting message if the user hits the URL directly or comes from a referer
which is not specified.
5)Ability to remove the message when the user navigates within the same site so we do not keep
nagging them with greeting messages.
6)Currently the following referrers are installed. I will update the list and the change will
automatically be reflected with everyone using this plugin. So its totally automatic and you dont
need to do code changes and staffs..

This blog has the plugin installed and so you can test it here itself.
Just copy the code and paste it and it will show up. Just follow two configuration.
1) Search for “Give your feed url here” and replace my fed url with yours.
2) Search for “List your domains where you dont” and replace it with your domain name.
<div id="mainDisplayDiv" style="background:#F8F8FF;border:1px solid #B6AFA9;display:none"><div id="dynamicContentDisplayed">
var feedURL = "http://feeds2.feedburner.com/blogspot/ct";var dynamicHTMLText = displayRequiredText(feedURL);
document.getElementById("dynamicContentDisplayed").innerHTML = dynamicHTMLText;</script>
//List your domains where you dont want to show up. Suppose
//when people navigate within your site and you dont want to
// show up. This is , seperated
var myRestrictedDomainList = "classictutorials.blogspot";showHideDiv(myRestrictedDomainList);</script>
