Do you have a search function on your website? If you do, then taking the time to setup Site Search reports within +Google Analytics can provide you with insights about your website's audience.

Depending on your search function, there are a number of ways to setup the reports. Here is a quick summary of the options:

1. Using the query parameter
2. Using a Google Analytics filter
3. Modifying your implementation
4. Using Google Tag Manager

#gmail   #inbox  
Google has announced that Inbox by Gmail (Google’s new take on streamlining email, tasks and appointments) is now available on iPad and Android tablets, as well as being supported on Firefox and Safari. Source: Gmail The announcement means there are now more ways for people to access Inbox. However, Inbox continues to only be available…

Do you run Google shopping campaigns? Would you run Facebook product ads?

Facebook releases new 'product ads' – allows you to upload multiple products or your entire product catalogue. In a move that looks to compete with Google shopping campaigns.

Great points +Leonardo Saraceni and +Stephen Hamilton. It's probably why the Facebook announcement emphasises the remarketing angle.

Are you creating a mobile app? Prototype apps using ‘Form’ from Google.

Form by RelativeWave was acquired by Google late last year and is now available for free. Downloading the software (Mac) allows you to prototype apps and test them on iOS devices (an Android version is likely).

Learn about the tool: http://www.relativewave.com/form/

I understand. Google profit optimization machine. Loved the fine tuning I could have done with it in the past!

I'd appreciate if you could follow +Cult Of Traffic - where I talk all things content and search.

How do people experience your website? How does it load on different internet speeds?

You can find out using +Google Chrome to simulate different internet connection speeds. Here is a quick summary of the steps:

1. Open 'Developer Tools'
2. Click on the device mode icon (looks like a mobile)
3. Click 'No Throttling' and select a slower connection speed

For more tips on using the loading speed simulation and complete steps head to the +Loves Data blog at http://www.lovesdata.com/blog/2015/understanding-website-loading-speed/

I'd prefer they fix the Analytics app ecommerce tracking first.

Do you perform link building? Google recommends changing your focus.

In a post today on +Search Engine Land, +Barry Schwartz has highlighted a recent comment by Google’s John Mueller saying that “only focusing on links is probably going to cause more problems for your website [than it] actually helps”.

Time to focus on earning links instead of seeking them out? Definitely!

Great spot for breakfast or lunch. It can get a bit noisy inside, so try to get an outside table. Great smoothies, coffee, eggs and felafel. Bloom is a new favorite spot.

Exceptional service! Mikayla at reception went above and beyond to help us sort out a problem with our hotel booking and gave us a discount since we were staying as the result of a cancelled flight. Thank you so much Mikayla! Room was clean and new. I highly recommend the Four Points!

Restaurant located within the Four Points Hotel and is now called the "Gulfstream". We arrived late after a cancelled flight and the service was friendly. It was a bit chaotic in the foyer with a private function, but made for some good people watching. Cocktails were a bit on the sweet side and could have used a more generous boost, so I would recommend beer or wine over cocktails. Food was surprisingly good for a hotel restaurant. Made the cancelled flight less painful. Thanks!
