LoL ... I forget how quickly people forget :)

I wrote up a whole history in this post, but removed it after better judgement. I'll wait till my 2 year NDA expires in August.

Let's just say, 2 years ago when I left eHow, we had nearly entirely recovered from Panda. I don't know what exactly happened in recent history, but the panda refreshes do sort of line up »

I've run out of goals!

I have a client that has already used up all their goals and we need more. What have people done to get around this limitation?

I'm thinking of using a few steps to get what they need:

Use Event based goals. That is trigger events that I can then set up goals for. This way I can be more specific about how a goal was triggered via the events Category, Action, Label and Value.

The client has multiple departments. Each department will only be interested in a subset of the goals. So I can create a view per department and set up only the goals they are interested in for that view.

One view can be an executive view that sees all. This is where the events come in as I can create goals that cover groups of events. e.g. They could have a goals for each department that sums up all goals related to the department.

Am I on the right track?

I get a lot of spam SEO email from gmail accounts trying to sell SEO. I generally ignore them. 

But I rarely get emails offering payment for links. I have just been offered $85 "to post a guest article" that "will contain a link" to a "casino website".

And it's from a real domain that represents an SEO company.

What's peoples policy on dealing with this sort of thing? Ignore or report? And how would you report it?

Day off. Let's start with some raw meat :-)

I once had neighbors who were an elderly German couple, and they would occasionally offer something like that to me I would help them in their garden.

I eventually ran out of excuses to decline, and had to stop helping them in their garden. :/

Edit: FWIW, I was about 14 at the time.

Google has fixed their title tag

It looks like Google is now using the correct title tag text lengths to fit into the new font size plus 512px css limit. Words are not cropped and ellipses are generated in the title tag itself.

Is anyone still seeing titles in search results that get cropped mid word?

I bought a bunch of stuff for an upcoming road trip, which included a swag. It was nice to get the members 10% credit on that first purchase. When I tested the swag out I found it was missing the listed pegs and rope. So I went back to the shop and they were very helpful. I ended up with new pegs and rope that would have been far better than the ones the swag would have included. So 5 stars for turning an issue into a reward.

I've been a few times and sat at the bar. At least there you get good friendly service. I like the atmosphere but not sure if it's worth paying those prices for it. Extra star because I loved the cheesburger. Expensive and small but very tasty. I'll be back just for that. Time to save up.
