Interesting read.

Galloway says that Amazon’s new $15 hourly wage needs to be viewed through a much more cynical lens. “Jeff Bezos doesn’t do anything that’s not the smart thing to do,” he says. “When Amazon raises their wages so publicly, other people are forced to do so” — thus starving out the competition. It’s our new Cold War, he says, and Amazon won’t stop at retail. It will outspend every other entity in pursuit of global domination.

In the 1970s my mother worked in food production for TV commercials.  A few of them alongside a director called Ridley Scott (whose career went rapidly downhill after that bigtime exposure

Back then the tricks of the trade were slightly different...

Traffic / How I recorded user behaviour on my competitor’s websites
« on: August 21, 2018, 12:47:08 PM »

Here’s what I did:

User lands on my page (referrer: google)
When they hit “back” button in Chrome, JS sends them to my copy of SERP
Click on any competitor takes them to my mirror of competitor’s site (noindex)
Now I generate heatmaps, scrollmaps, records screen interactions and typing.

Sad news.  Met him just once I think at the Citie of Yorke.  Very interesting and engaging guy.

The UK is in the EU with opt-outs.
But the UK wants out of the EU with opt-ins.

That's the single best argument I've heard to date for Brexit

I wonder if there is something in the nature of the Airbnb product that leads to a greater number of visits per conversion.

For a flight - its typically a very easy, functional transaction (airline of choice or meta search)

For a hotel - a bit of bouncing between the OTA and tripadvisor, maybe having started at or used a meta search at some point

For Airbnb - a load of research on the properties available, locations, owner, reading the reviews, etc.  Message the owner, wait for response, negotiate a price, wait for a response, book it, revisit closer to travel time to get the details etc.

It keeps pulling you back in

Any sign of manual actions in Search Console?

Would have thought not showing for name is either some sort of penalty or Google to accepting the new site theme.

Any point during the sites previous life where you can see traffic disappearing in Searchmetrics or the like?

I'm kinda jealous.

I feel the same.

Have been debating posting this, but switch the name on the paper from Google to anything else and the general reaction may be all together much more positive.

That said, I've just been brainwashed for 3 days at Google i/o and may have been assimilated.

someone recommended to me in another thread here.  They have a reverse analytics look up too.

I would have thought so.  Its just an H1 with some additional, non-conflicting nested tags, right?
