It could also count your own visits (or other developers/users) while you investigate/test the site, unless you have explicitly blocked yours/their IP from loading GA. I have seen plenty of people (especially when checking their Google indexed pages) do a Google search and click a few links to navigate around their own site. If you do that and can't find ...

Answer is simple. User had started with google (new session) then left your website and came back directly (or other non-tagged source) to non-indexed page.

To combat this, I had my "Sign in with Google" functionality use meta refresh ...

I cannot comment based on experience, as I am relatively new to the field. However, I can give you an answer. Some answer is better than no answer, right? There are advantages and disadvantages for both approaches. The disadvantages are that you might be getting some benefits on local search because of the page rank of example.com and adding your efforts to ...

At this time I am unaware of any browser allowing domains to access local data stores of other domains. (cookies, html 5 local storage, flash objects). The simplest option here is to serve up your news letter prompt via JavaScript from just one of the domains. If the visitor is blocking third party cookies (their choice) then there is not much you can do ...
