We reported late last year that the Chinese Canon clone-maker Yongnuo was planning to launch a new 35mm f/2 lens for Canon EF cameras. The lens has now arr

I think it's time for Google to ban the bots.

Start domain matching bots that are hammering large swaths of Analytics profiles, and start outright banning them from the service and removing them from all traffic stats.

What they're doing constitutes abuse of the system and is hurting use of the Analytics product for customers who haven't implemented one of the filtering methods.

If all Analytics profiles removed all traffic from semault, buttons for website, and other spam junk, it'd very quickly kill this tactic for them.

It's time for GA to have a Spam folder like Gmail...  :-))

What are the odds of half the backlight going out on one monitor, replacing it, and after 1 day of use, having backlights on the same side go out again?

General Questions  - 
 
Maybe an obvious question but is there a concept of account ownership in GTM, or is it as it appears to be: different levels of access, add/remove access as needed? The GTM FAQ seems to suggest that you should always create accounts under an end client Google Account, but I don't see any signs of account ownership on GTM like there used to be on GA.

Just different types of access, as I know.

And maybe because Google in Settings think that you are a Web developer / Agency / Marketer and not a website owner when you use GTM.

Really I don't see why the Owner should get involved into TAG thing. I see the owner as a person who see the Big Picture and not how it's implemented a TAG / button ID / event.

But that's me... Who knows what Google will do next. ;)

And now for something completely different: Standing Desks!
Does your back ache at the end of the work day? Do you find it difficult to maintain correct back posture and suffer as a result? You may want to consider using a standing desk. At Top Draw, we have five people who are at standing desks full-time. Using a standing desk has a few benefits: …

My feet are sore at the end of the day, but my back is top notch. It's also made 3 hour socials where I might be standing the whole time a real breeze.

This is one of those reasons Vine should exist.

Inexpensive, fast, and lots of variety. A favorite for Dim Sum.

Easy. My first mortgage involved a slew of documents that I didn't have a lot of time to review. Going through Ron's process was straight forward and pretty much pain free. Getting a better rate than the bank would offer was nice too ;)

The new decor and renovations looked good, but I had undercooked fish in my chow mein, and the service was not up to snuff. Had to wander into the kitchen to get someone's attention that we were there.

Great location, reasonable prices, and not pretentious like many other archery shops. Good place to get back into practice.

They price match, they've got excellent inventory and a great website that shows what's in stock. Their tech guys also really know their stuff, unlike the guys at Future Shop or Best Buy.
