Je verwacht het niet, maar 30% neemt het niet zo nauw met de nieuwe algoritme wijzigingen van Google...
 ·  Translate
Een beetje stellig neergezet, maar toch is het wel zo. Google heeft onlangs aangekondigd de mobielvriendelijkheid van een website mee te nemen in hun algoritme. En dat ze dat van te voren al zo duidelijk aankondigen mag best uniek genoemd worden. Dit biedt een grote kans om hoger in Google te komen aangezien hier van …

More and more sites are moving towards HTTPS in the past months. Google claimed it can be used as an SEO ranking signal and privacy organizations advice it so you give your visitors more privacy. Google Analytics works fine on both HTTP and HTTPS sites. In the basic tracking script you see this line: It's …

My advice: turn it on for all your main profiles
 
Introducing Bot and Spider Filtering

Many of you have shared with us that it’s hard to identify the real traffic that comes to your pages. That’s why I’m pleased to announce that we’re adding bot and spider filtering. 

You can simply select a new checkbox option which would be included in the view level of the management user interface. This option would be labeled "Exclude traffic from known bots and spiders". Selecting this option will exclude all hits that come from bots and spiders on the IAB know bots and spiders list. The backend will exclude hits matching the User Agents named in the list as though they were subject to a profile filter. This will allow you to identify the real number of visitors that are coming to your site. 

Nestlé has been testing it and has found great benefit:  

“The Bot filter solution is essential for getting deeper insights. View level availability let us stay fully aligned with Best Practices provided to all site owners. Very easy to use, understand and communicate across thousands of Google Analytics users.”
-  Katarzyna Malik, Nestlé Google Analytics Specialist

Happy Analyzing!

What is the impact of the new Bot Exclude feature Google Analytics launched? Let's have a look.
Google recently launched a new function called "Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders". You can find, and turn it on, in your "view settings": After you turn it on Google will exclude all the known bots from the IAB/ABC International Spiders & Bots List. So it's not some sort of smart bot-detecting algorithm, …
