comment SEO: do we need to redirect also pages with final slash?
@DanMan Doesn't affect performance? I would have thought the extra 301 redirect would affect performance. From an SEO perspective, it doesn't matter much (Search engines are good at figuring it all out) - providing you are consistent - but from a performance perspective, there is a difference, albeit very minor.

comment AdWords traffic not (properly) reflected in Analytics
TBH Oliver... I've just left that employer so I no longer have access to their accounts.

I think I did - however, when I follow the process in your link, I get a 404 at the point where I click on the GA link in AdWords.

comment Adwords traffic showing up in Analytics as organic traffic, not paid?
@sam - no negatives, but clearly you have more control if you build the URL yourself. For most people, the auto-tagged URLs are fine.

Ah... I'd stumbled across references to MCC, but never recognised the significance. Thanks.

comment How to safely collect bank account from website and without an external gateway payment system
@AlexandruTrandafirCatalin - if your server is internet-facing, it isn't going to be secure.

I agree - Don't do it. Paying for a professional service should cost you between 3-5%, and it is money well spent.

comment Adding Video To Website - Embed or Vimeo?
For the record, Vimeo do have a business package: vimeo.com/pro - but $200 for 3 short clips is insane.

comment SEO: ABBR and My Full Phrase (MFP)
Our CSS gives ABBR quite a subtle style, so I think I'll include it right at the start. Thereafter I'll use the acronym and the full phrase probably with a approx 60/40 split.

comment Multiple country-specific domains or one global domain
Not even close - apart from the fact that the question predates Panda and subsequent updates by 2 years, the question also doesn't address country-specific domains, merely the organisation of one domain.

comment HTML validation: is it worth it?
I don't see what the issue is - support for deprecated or invalid markup might change in future. Over-looking the imperfect implementation of(X)HTML in most browsers, surely you are going to be safer sticking with valid markup. There is no cost associated with valid markup, other than simply knowing what you are doing.

comment HTML validation: is it worth it?
I'd argue that Strict is essential - why choose to run the risk of deprecated code and quirks mode. There is no cost to using Strict, other than that it encourages you to know more about your preferred markup version.
