I received an email from a company based in China saying that someone wanted to register my company’s domain name for the .cn domain but that they could help me grab it first. Is that legit or a scam? And do I really need to register the .cn domain?
Some site designs are more efficient and productive than others, whether your goal is to maximize pages per visit, time on page or even revenue per visitor. Problem is, how do you efficiently test possibilities? Sure you can A/B test two designs, but what if you could test dozens or hundreds of designs simultaneously to quickly identify the best layout for your goal?
This type of testing is known as multivariate or Taguchi testing, and it can be quite mind-numbingly complicated. Imagine keeping track of dozens of variables simultaneously!
That’s why I’m really intrigued to be running the Ezoic UI testing system…
I’ve been waffling between using the “www” on my new site and not using it and a colleague told me that’s a problem with the search engine. She said I need to set the “preferred domain” in Google Webmaster Tools (GWT). How do I do that?
I’ve been working with a local kid on improving my search engine ranking and while it was going well for a while, my site seems to be getting less and less traffic in the last month or two. That’s not right! He told me that I could look in my Google Webmaster Tools area to find out if there are any specific flagged problems, but frankly I kinda think he did some bad things and don’t want his help. I do, however, want to look and see if there are any problems, I just have no idea where that information can be found in Webmaster Tools. Help!
I’m excited that a local book author wants me to host a giveaway for her book on my blog. Cool. I’ve seen other people do it. But how? Is there a good tool or utility that’ll make it easy for me to collect entries and even maybe get a few new people to like my fan page on Facebook?
I don’t like to have any problems or errors on my site so I’m constantly checking Google Webmaster Tools (GWT) and am a bit confused about how to find and fix broken links. Can you give a quick tutorial?
I noticed your have a meetup.com group of your own, Dave, so I thought I’d ask you: I want to ask a few companies to be sponsors of my meetup group and am curious how to add a sponsor within meetup.com so that everyone who visits the group page sees their logo and can click through to their site? I have seen it on other meetup.com group pages.
I saw you had an article on how to Add someone to your google analytics account but, um, that’s out of date, Dave, and is no longer helpful. Now, today, February 2013, can you write a new article that shows how to grant a colleague access to a Google Analytics account without them being able to tweak or change things?
