comment If I already have server logs & Google Webmaster Tools, do I still need Analytics?
Read Avinash Kaushik's book on Web Analytics an Hour a Day, in which he talks about the evolution of web tracking systems where he discusses in great length the pros and cons of server logs and the pros and cons of a JS based tracking system such as Google Analytics. If you are relying on the Google ecosystem for traffic and promotions, then you are missing out a huge chunk of data (stuff such as demographic profiling, in market segments, ability to create remarketing lists)

comment Trouble with referrer spam, not a programmer
@JohnConde this is a common problem in many sites who run GA. The question seems to be valid.

comment Can GA be a security risk in a Public GitHub repo?
They can't "hack" your account. What could be done is that people can start calling the GA methods sending data to the GA storage engine that you do not want (e.g pushing a custom variable or an event).

comment Is Offer the right type for a site with company share price information?
@ThePHPUnicorn, this makes sense. Offer might have the same structure as you want, however its contextually incorrect.

comment Does lazy loading work on externally hosted images?
@Renuka to answer your question in short. Yes. What Question overflow is hinting to is that since the images are not being served from your domain, their transfer will start in parallel while your theme files are being downloaded and will not slow the page rendering process.

comment Should I track the login page?
If you want real usage stats, keep the redirects and code (accept the fact that for non-logged in users you will get reduced bounce rate, due to the redirection to the login page). However, for logged-in users, you will still get correct bounce rates, and you can even go down to the level of individual application users and see who is bouncing off which content.

comment Should I track the login page?
When you remove the tracking from login, then for each redirect from a content page to the login page would be treated as a bounce!

comment A one-day loss statistics from Google
There lies your problem @ErfanSafarpoor ! You could have redirected the 404s to the proper pages using 301s. By using disallow, you are basically asking Google to stop crawling that section of your site, ergo to forget all the previously done good work by you (since now in the eyes of the search engine, all the good ranking urls are either missing - 404s, or not allowed to be indexed - disallowed).
