Overcome the Google Analytics Learning Curve in 20 Minutes The author's posts are entirely his or her own (excluding the unlikely event of hypnosis) and may not always reflect the views of Moz. As recently as a month ago I was a victim of a state of mind I call Analytics Dismissal Disorder. This mindset is common after hearing about the importance of analytics, installing the tracking code and then getting overwhelmed by all of the graphs and scary numbers. When I suffered from analytics dismissal disorder (which my doctors called A.D.D. for short), I knew Google Analytics was important but avoided the extra effort necessary to learn how to get the most out of the software.

Pirate Bay ‘Censorship’ Judge is Corrupt, Claims Pirate Party Founder This week yet another court order was handed down in Europe with the aim of censoring The Pirate Bay. The ruling forbids the Dutch Pirate Party from not only running a direct proxy, but also telling people how to circumvent an earlier court ordered blockade. However, according to Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge, the judge in the case has a history of corruption relating to another file-sharing case he presided over in the Netherlands. The Court of The Hague in the Netherlands has been particularly busy this work with Pirate Bay-related cases. Following an earlier court ruling ordering two of the country’s largest ISPs to block subscriber access to The Pirate Bay, the Court ordered a further five ISPs to block TPB IP addresses and 20 domain names Thursday. The Court then went on to make a decision that was perhaps even more controversial than the first.
Two sides to Facebook Places for the travel industry The web’s worst kept secret of recent months finally became a reality yesterday when Facebook unveiled its widely anticipated Facebook Places location tool. Apart from inevitably having a massive impact on existing geo services such as Gowalla and Foursquare, Facebook Places opens up a fantastic array of possibilities for the travel brands and travellers alike. The reason why Facebook Places will make travel companies sit and up listen to ideas around geo services and location check-in is easy: 500 million members having the ability to pinpoint where they are and share information with friends is suddenly very important, and more than just a quirky tool that tech media luvvies FourSquare and Gowalla have produced. In other words: volume and audience penetration will trigger a change in thinking. So how does Facebook Places work? Well, pretty much the same as its counterparts.
