An epicurean who has read a Rand too many.

Happy to be opinionated and willing to be corrected.

Techie at heart and a manager by need, I tend to combine business and technology for doing awesome things.

When I get time from all these things, I sometimes think … and sometimes blog (not necessarily in the same order)

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.

Was this after the <body> tag?

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).

@ErfanSafarpoor can you check for 404s in GWMT? Have they gone up?

comment A one-day loss statistics from Google
Which traffic source got hit the most? the second picture shows a huge spike in impressions during that time ... so I am guessing your organic traffic got hit the most, perhaps @Brendon could be right here?

comment Google analytics stopped showing trackbacks after tracking code change
Wow, you made/manage Bower? Cool. Thanks. :) The new roll out of GA is having its fair share of issues, so much so that Justin Cutroni (one of the Google Evamgelists working on Analytics) has shared a [form on his G+ stream][1]. [1]: docs.google.com/forms/d/…

comment Really slow wordpress website admin panel with a total query time 1664ms for the home page
You might get better luck posting it on wordpress.stackexchange.com :) . Enabling all features on Jetpack is known to cause bloat, so I'd only enable the ones which I use.

comment What is the difference between offsite and onsite web analytic tools?
Offsite is data which is gathered NOT on your site. For e.g GA (Google Analytics) provides you with industry benchmarking (how your site performs v/s the industry average).

comment Random traffic sources on Google Analytics
Most interesting! Do these bots have a particular signature that can be identified, and then that traffic be filtered away with? Have you published your study? Is it available online? (aside)

comment Total number of unique visitors Google Analytics report not correct?
Both the answers submitted are correct. You are mixing up date ranges.

Its separately calculated for each ad impression AFAIK.

comment Does the source of a visitor affect the revenue for Google AdSense ads?
The volume of traffic you would require to do this test ceterus paribus to determine this would be so high that you would stop bothering with this detail and keep counting the money in your bank instead!!

please re-phrase your question. The question above seems more like a rant.

comment Should I worry about people disabling Javascript?
What's more with this approach you could also have non-javascript fallbacks in place. So the snazzy looking menu with JS could be a simple menu without JS.

The linux daemon required to setup is named I believe. Have configured this in the past and I am more than happy to rely on the domain registrar's nameservers!!

comment Google Analytics and Whos.amung.us in realtime visitors, why such an enormous discrepancy?
Did you try checking the website while looking at both the metrics? I believe GA increments by 1 ... how much does WAU increment.
