comment Real-time analytics always shows 100% new
Always leave one 'view' that is unfiltered: No filtering out IPs; no adjustments to users; no custom parameters. That way when things go haywire (as they always will, analytics is complex and frequently changes) you can quantify, compare, and diagnose the problem.

comment Google reducing indexed page count
As John is touching on, your tactics were just detected. And early on, I did similar things...Unfortunately, spammy stuff works for a while; it works until you get caught or an algo update comes along. If you want to rank for different locations I recommend looking into accurate use of structured data (e.g. schema.org) to ensure that search engines clearly understand the areas your business serves (indexing)...combined with legitimate off-page SEO methods (ranking).

comment Get total for User Timings in Google Analytics
I can relate, sometimes I'm just too overwhelmed to learn something new right then. If the content loads from your server a server-side solution should suffice (look into what your hosting provides). Also, try browsing the Google Analytics App Gallery and the Google Docs (template) Gallery, maybe someone has built something that does this already.

comment Are there any differences between URLs with and without “www” and “http://”
If the naked domain is used (e.g. example.com) then there is no way to set up sub-domains without cookies. With www it is possible to set up a sub-domain(s) that does not have cookies for the serving of static assets. Cookies require data transfer and therefore slow load times; fast load times positively impact SEO and user experience...that said, I have never done this myself and the difference in performance and SEO is often almost negligible.
