Ok, now I have added Google Analytics to my SEO check-list

I just saw a very interesting post from my friend Matt Paines on Google Analytics affecting ranking. I have actually been seeing sites loose rank over the past months with out any clear reason, all but one are using GA.

I am going to look into this again with the information Matt has posted on his site. For those who want to read more from Matt’s post got to http://blog.xseo.com/GoogleAnalyticsdamagerankings

There is also a interesting point made by Dixon Jones on this topic at the same post.

IndexTools Rubix sneak-peak preview

Pfefff, that was nice! I just got a short introduction on Indextools 10 and Indextools Rubix and I must say that it is one of the coolest tools I have seen in a long time – Analytics 2.0 welcome.

I have been using web Analytics for nearly 10 years, first just to know the number of hits, but then to more advanced tools like DeepMatrix, Webalizer, Counter.com and WebTrends to mention few. Some 3 or 4 years back (might be longer) I found Indextools on the Internet (Google) and it was a great match from where I was standing they had the tool that did the trick, but there was still something missing, some spice that makes me go hmmmm.

Indextools Rubix is that, hmmmmm!!!

This new version of Indextools is actually mind blowing to say the least and if they can keep the big words said at the introduction, then kudos to you.

Indextools has taken Web Analytics to another level, great work!

Did YouTube and CNN hit the nail?

Looks like CNN and You Tube had the right idea when they held the first-ever online presidential debate this year. ClipBlast! reports that of the 1000 Americans surveyed, 29,5% said they will get their candidate information from news videos, 22% from online debates, and 7,5% will get their election information from video bloggers.

Mel Carson is now officially my idol

Mel Carson from Microsoft’s adCenter was in a Joe Cocker Video, How cool is that?! Joe Cocker the man who made the Beatles song “With a little help from my friends” famous at Woodstock, way back when. My question is, is Microsoft a step up or down?

It appears email is the preferred method

Email is the preferred method of communications in the workplace. At least according to a study made by Diemension Data recently. In fact everybody, 100% of end users asked use email as their main communication channel, followed by fixed-line telephones, 80%. 76% use mobile phones and 66% use instant messaging. And where did I see this? Well I was sitting in the lounge at JFK and saw it in some computer magasine I picked up there. Trival data? No not when you look at the fixed line versus mobile. That reminds me 93% of college students own mobile phones compared to 69% five years ago. My “phone” is a 400 mhz, 128 mb ram and 2 gb HDD computer, it’s 4x more power full than my first Pentium PC.
