Technical questions  - 
 
I have GA showing duplicate results under Content Drilldown - single pages are listed as two separate line items like: "/example" and "/example/"

Either link takes you to the same page, so I need to combine these results, if not retroactively at least for future results. Is there any way to get GA to view hits for both URLs as the same 'page'?

Think of it over time... Note when I say "bad" URLs I mean the ones you've redirected to the "good" ones (with or without trailing /).

You create the 301 redirects from the "bad" pages to the "good" pages. Great. No potential duplicate content penalty and eventually your GA data is cleaned up and easier to parse because Google drops the "bad" URLs from its index.

However, if your canonical tags point to the "bad" URLs you may confound Google's spider and incur its wrath.

You'd be hinting that the "bad" page is the page which should be indexed. Yet that page redirects to the "good" page. Not sure if that's clear...

You should also check your sitemap.xml and verify internal links all point at the "good" pages.

Its one walled garden or another, folks. That said, I still prefer #Android.

Gotcha. I'm not fired up, just assumed the Ars author's tone of #whiningandcomplaining  about Google's success was one you shared. Actually he makes a great point that Amazon is already proving that an AOSP-ecosystem can exist, and Samsung is showing how one would go about jumping-off of #GoogleAndroid  to #stockAndroid... by employing a #boadload  of developers and innovating rather than sitting in the #seatOfJudgement  and fussing about how #developers  have to do more work because Google isn't handing out ALL of it's goodies. ;-) Next he'll be crying out to #Obama  to rescue us and force #GoogleAndroid to go full open-source... which would amount to #fascism  at its best.

Every time I log onto Google Plus, I find better and better changes. It's a shame the network is under-appreciated.

This is remarkably evil and brilliant!
 
"After trying out standard protocol, IT asked if there have been any recent changes in the executive’s life. He said he quit smoking and switched to e-cigs. The IT team inspected the e-cigarette, and found that it was a shady brand from China that, as it turned out, was loaded with malware."

Hah.


While electronic cigarette companies are attempting to make smoking a subscription-based, pay-as-you-smoke affair, it seems some intrepid miscreants have figured out another use for the up-and-coming vaping industry: transmitting computer viruses. Oxford Dictionaries [...]

+Adam Dachis After being harassed to on the podcast, you've managed to talk me into spending a few minutes and enabling two-factor authentication on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. I needed the push.
