comment Are there any downsides of including google-analytics on your website?
It is if you can get access to users ISP logs and account details to tie an IP address to a particular account. Your web server will be recording IP addresses in it's logs already.

Do you mean 'utm_' rather than 'stm_'?

comment Is there any benefit of Google Analytics asynchronous tracking code if it isn't placed in the <head>?
Google imply that you can put the code pretty much anywhere but that for most pages the optimal place is at the bottom of the <head> (code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/asyncTracking.html)

comment How do I test the usability of my website?
Steve Krug took out all the user testing stuff from 'Don't MMT' for the 2nd edition and expanded it into 'Rocket Surgery'. The missing chapters from the 1st edition can be downloaded for free from his site (sensible.com/dmmt.html)

GA won't slow the loading/display of your page if the code is put in the bottom of the page (or if you use the new asynchronous tracking code).

GA only records the time when the page is loaded by the browser - it doesn't run any code as you leave a page. The time on page is just the difference in time stamps between one page an the next.

comment Good tool to crawl my site and help me find dead link and unlinked files
Check the 'Orphan files' option in the options and it will prompt you for an ftp login to your site.

comment Should I combine js/css files into a single file?
Though you do need to be very aware of the initial impression given by your home page / landing pages. If the first page a visitor sees is slow to load they might not bother to look at a second page.

How do you know your users know to remove 'no-spam'? You're only going to hear from the ones who do :¬)
