After 'Picture in Picture', we get 'Google in Google'!

After 'Picture in Picture', we get 'Google in Google'!   Just noticed this while using Google Search (see image). A lot of 'big' websites have an search box above their organic sitelinks, see left side of the image. I expected Google to use the internal search function of the website so you will be redirected to http://www.imdb.com/find?q=pulp+fiction&s=all for example. Instead of this to happen, Google combines the given query with 'site:<DOMAIN>', see right side of the image. Is this Is this an improvement? Is Google testing with this new feature? Is this permanent? Check this out on...

Google Analytics Bot and Spider Filtering

Google Analytics Bot and Spider Filtering   Great new feature in Google Analytics! With a simple check you can exclude traffic from common bots and spiders! No need to exclude every bot or spider manually by by using filters. #googleanalytics Originally shared by +Google Analytics Introducing Bot and Spider Filtering Many of you have shared with us that it’s hard to identify the real traffic that comes to your pages. That’s why I’m pleased to announce that we’re adding bot and spider filtering. You can simply select a new checkbox option which would be included in the view level of the management user interface. This option would be labeled "Exclude traffic from known bots and spiders". Selecting this option will exclude all hits that come from bots and spiders on the IAB know bots and spiders list. The backend will exclude hits matching the User Agents named in the list as though they were subject to a profile filter. This will allow you to identify the real number of visitors that are coming to your site. Nestlé has been testing it and has found great benefit: “The Bot filter solution is essential for getting deeper insights. View level availability let us stay fully aligned with Best Practices provided to all site owners. Very easy to use, understand and communicate across thousands of Google Analytics users.”– Katarzyna Malik, Nestlé Google Analytics Specialist Happy Analyzing!
