comment How Can I Audit Kijiji's new PPC system
I'm not sure of the cost but this company makes a script that tries to detects advertising fraud. One of the founders presented to a local analytics meetup I attended and he certainly knew his stuff: mktsci.com

comment Googlebot only seems to crawl my front page even when provided a different URL
If you review the Google Search Console data for the last month (indexed pages, landing pages, search queries, content keywords), does it seem Google is crawling the site correctly or not?

comment Prioritizing duplicate/syndicated content rather than original
I totally understand, beyond 'clients,' I've dealt with plenty of web developers/designers who seem to think they understand SEO when they don't (probably the worst is when they launch a site a leave the "noindex" directives in place). If you block crawling via robots directives, there will still a bit of a "race" to be the first to publish/ping any given piece of content so they are considered the originator. You could tell them: Our content gets you 90% there--for maximum effectiveness, make sure to write an introduction, a conclusion and to make small edits throughout.

comment How does Google use analytics which uses first party cookies to show relevant ads on third party sites?
I understand better now but it doesn't help because GA can use some 3rd party cookies (DoubleClick) if you enable demographic reporting. Traditional remarketing snippets from AdWords use JS (cookies) but also have a tracking pixel fallback. And you can now use the GA itself (without a separate AdWords remarketing snippet) to do remarketing...there's just way too many things to be able to explain how they all might work.

comment What consumes less resources on the client side, an animation with gif or CSS?
Have you ever made an animated .gif? It a series of static images that loop at timed intervals. Taking those files, sequencing and timing them are the author's responsibilities, most of the burden on the client is related to bandwidth (they are bitmap based). CSS animations are vector based and they rely on the client calculating and rendering them appropriately and there's lot of variables (for instance, even with 2d transformations, it's often a good practice to write them as 3d transformations so they use the GPU not the CPU), totally different technologies.

comment Images as hyperlinks and SEO implications
Indeed. Amazing how often SEO's overthink things without reviewing fundamentals--you can learn a lot by looking over Google's Patent applications.
