Google Tag Manager seems to complain on my product pages and category pages when I use this new argument in my google_tag_params data sent to adwords.


When I remove it, Google Tag Assistant stops complaining.

This field is documented here:

Additionally I believe 'cart' is incorrectly called 'basket' in this page on the documentation.

Analytics Remarketing Code is interfering with Enhanced Link Attribution

I've been running the doubleclick analytics snippet to build my remarketing lists. A while ago someone on our team wanted heat maps to track user clicks better. I went ahead and installed Enhanced Link Attribution plugin to improve the tracking.

Problem is, the data never improved. It's been a couple months now. I have a feeling the doubleclick snippet and Enhanced Link Attribution plugin do not play nicely together. There's no documentation (i can find) about this conflict by searching the documentation.

With that said, other people have noticed this problem. Their solution is google tag manager, which I would prefer to leave off my site. Any other solutions?


+Sajal Kayan curious about what CDN you would recommend for a site doing a couple GB a month in traffic 60% in the US+Canada and the rest spread pretty evenly across the globe.

Been looking at SliceHost and AWS and leaning towards SliceHost for ease of setup. CacheFly is too expensive and GoGrid is the other one in the runnings.

Benchmarking some jquery.

What's faster? $('#container .target') or $('.target', '#container') ?

The later, by about 4x. In both jQuery 1.6.2 and 1.3.2 in Chrome & Firefox.

What's faster? $('.target') or $('') ?

The former. Again by about 4x.

Both of these conclusions are counter intuitive to me. Looks like I have to start coding differently.

Don't believe me, test for yourself:

Supercharging Android: Google to Acquire Motorola Mobility

Since its launch in November 2007, Android has not only dramatically increased consumer choice but also improved the entire mobile experience for users. Today, more than 150 million Android devices have been activated worldwide--with over 550,000 devices now lit up every day--through a network of about 39 manufacturers and 231 carriers in 123 countries. Given Android’s phenomenal success, we are always looking for new ways to supercharge the Android ecosystem. That is why I am so excited today to announce that we have agreed to acquire Motorola (

Motorola has a history of over 80 years of innovation in communications technology and products, and in the development of intellectual property, which have helped drive the remarkable revolution in mobile computing we are all enjoying today. Its many industry milestones include the introduction of the world’s first portable cell phone nearly 30 years ago, and the StarTAC--the smallest and lightest phone on earth at time of launch. In 2007, Motorola was a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance ( that worked to make Android the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. I have loved my Motorola phones from the StarTAC era up to the current DROIDs.

In 2008, Motorola bet big on Android as the sole operating system across all of its smartphone devices. It was a smart bet and we’re thrilled at the success they’ve achieved so far. We believe that their mobile business is on an upward trajectory and poised for explosive growth.

Motorola is also a market leader in the home devices and video solutions business. With the transition to Internet Protocol, we are excited to work together with Motorola and the industry to support our partners and cooperate with them to accelerate innovation in this space.

Motorola’s total commitment to Android in mobile devices is one of many reasons that there is a natural fit between our two companies. Together, we will create amazing user experiences that supercharge the entire Android ecosystem for the benefit of consumers, partners and developers everywhere.

This acquisition will not change our commitment to run Android as an open platform. Motorola will remain a licensee of Android and Android will remain open. We will run Motorola as a separate business. Many hardware partners have contributed to Android’s success and we look forward to continuing to work with all of them to deliver outstanding user experiences.

We recently explained ( how companies including Microsoft and Apple are banding together in anti-competitive patent attacks on Android. The U.S. Department of Justice had to intervene in the results of one recent patent auction to “protect competition and innovation in the open source software community” ( and it is currently looking into ( the results of the Nortel auction. Our acquisition of Motorola will increase competition by strengthening Google’s patent portfolio, which will enable us to better protect Android from anti-competitive threats from Microsoft, Apple and other companies.

The combination of Google and Motorola will not only supercharge Android, but will also enhance competition and offer consumers accelerating innovation, greater choice, and wonderful user experiences. I am confident that these great experiences will create huge value for shareholders.

I look forward to welcoming Motorolans to our family of Googlers.

-Larry Page
