comment How Google ads add a pageview?
That's basically how I do it to, except my match list contains dozens of ip addresses as well.

comment How Google ads add a pageview?
Ha! Not easily. We basically keep a list of all the IP addresses that we determined were bots. And for every hit to the page we would check the list and only trigger our functions if we determined it to not be a bot. Since we keep a database record for every transaction, as we found new bots, we could go back and remove them from the records.

I think it's bots. We had similar issues and would find some ip addresses hitting our pages hundreds of times in the span of a couple minutes. Definitely not human traffic. This would of course trigger our scripts and throw off our numbers.

comment When updating to HTML5, will adding <!doctype html>, <article>, and microdata result in rendering problems in older browsers?
As long as you aren't using them to separate block level content, then no, you will be fine and shouldn't need anything else.

comment Best way to handle query string params no longer used
Well, 404s are bad, and you should avoid them. Would those URLs generate anything useful by redirecting all of the 'keyword=' URLs to 'search=' URLs?

comment Site blocked by content filter
It also doesn't necessarily mean your site is a 'games' site. 'Games site' may just be the name of their firewall rule. I have a ton of sites where I work that are blocked as 'Facebook' sites. not because they have anything to do with Facebook, but that was just the name of the rule my the company started with and never renamed.

comment Google Analytics page views and page hits
Does your web app take into account views from spiders and bots? They can hammer a site with impressions if you aren't blocking or removing them.

comment Is there a non-Safari Apple Web browser for the Ipad / iPhone / iPod?
I do believe that Opera Mini uses it's own engine.And I would assume now that Google has forked Webkit, they will try to do the same. Wether they will be successful, I don't know.

Are the page titles different? You can view the analytics by page title if they are to differentiate them.
