What do Web Analysts do?

Blast from the past... This one from Feb 2012 by Rachelle Maisner, http://goo.gl/vpBYzw, was just tweeted by someone. 

Funny and insightful. What do you think?

If you are doing content marketing then you should check out Influencer Reporting in http://www.socialcrawlytics.com 

The tool now identifies the most influential people who have interacted with the most shared content of your competitor's site - this data is an absolute goldmine and very actionable. 

Here is an example report - check out the highlighted part.

Hi Yousaf, I topped up my social crawlytics account with some money, and it still registers as 0 credits available. It also won't let me tweet for renewed credits - after a week. Can you help? Or tell me where to go for help? Thanks.

Indeed, I do some spread betting myself and I wonder if its just considered a necessary evil and the financial risk is already factored into the use HFT.  

When computers are trading against each other, I guess verifying news sources is of secondary importance. 

The thing is, fake news on twitter is nothing new. Celebrities get prematurely RIP'd all the time. However, people seem to be blaming Twitter on this one which is strange.

UPDATE ON THE GOOGLE'S SMARTPHONE CONFIGURATION RECOMMENDATIONS: 

Three months ago or so a few people noticed that on the latest update of the Google recommendations for "Changing configuration on smartphone" they were recommending 302 redirects in the  "Moving from separate URLs to same URLs" scenario:

"Redirect your separate smartphone URLs to your desktop URLs using server-side 302 HTTP redirects" it said.  

I've seen that these have been updated (the latest update says it was on August 26 for the English version and on September 8 in the Spanish and French one that I checked too).

Now it says: "Redirect your separate smartphone URLs to your desktop URLs using server-side 301 HTTP redirects". 

Many of us were wondering why they were recommending 302 redirects instead of 301 ... I guess this change answers our question in some way! 

On the other hand, in the "Moving from same URLs to separate URLs" scenario before they were recommending "using server-side 302 HTTP redirects" and now it says "using server-side 301 or 302 HTTP redirects". 

You can see the screenshot attached with the old and new version of the recommendations. The old one was taken from the Wayback Machine on June 26 (you can see it for yourself here too: http://web.archive.org/web/20140626004334/https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/change-configuration) and you can see the current one here: https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/change-configuration

Hello +Yousaf Sekander , your article is truly impressive. Best of the week I'd say. 

One part of it which appears prohibitive to those of us without a large budget is finding a tool which will identify the influencers on a per url basis. Gnip (starting at $500 pm), Topsy ($1k pm) & Datasift (starting at $3k pm) are rather expensive. Do you know of any alternative solutions or workarounds? 

Edit: I'm aware Topsy do give a list to free customers, but it can't be downloaded, so this presents a bottleneck to automation.
