comment How can the Google Analytics “Screen Colors” metric be remotely accurate?
I agree it's the color depth perceived by the end user which matters. However, your answer only applies to the color depth which is marketed to end users, not what they actually see. Having done a lot of testing between panel types, there's still a massive perceived/actual/visual difference between 6bit and 8bit panels. What the panels actually display is far more relavant than what they're marketed as.

So in other words, Google metric can't be accurate. Thanks.

FWIW, TFT Central is a pretty well recognized expert on this info. They've got related info on a few other pages: tftcentral.co.uk/specs.htm tftcentral.co.uk/news_archive/23.htm#colour_depths

Well, you can test it yourself. You can look up the specs on the most popular panels and see what panels they use. Other than the ones that are popular among designers, photographers... they're most often 6bit panels. What's the model number on your panel? Your answer still doesn't address my question: how can GA tell what panel a user has? I don't have a 6bit panel to test with. But one quick test with that JS reported 32bit in IE, 24bit in FF.

comment 301 redirects in main navigation menu of WordPress website - is this okay for SEO?
First, there's already way to do what he's asking within WordPress without using 301 redirects. He can use the menu settings to disable pages being automatically added to the navigation, then manually add them as need be. Secondly, many plugins assume the accuracy of the menu. So putting 301 redirects in there may cause them to break. Plus, this may break in future WP updates as it's not a best practice (and even best practices sometimes change and break.) As far as SEO goes, having one link for one page is best. 301's are fine when pages move. The video you linked to is a year 1+ old..[limit]

While there are no current cloaking issues with using 301 redirects in this case, especially with the panda update Google is showing us they want us to follow best practices and even if there's a legitimate reason to vary from them, when they catch nefarious uses of such techniques, they shut them down.
