Using Google Analytics for A Better Web Experience

If you have a website, it is subject to web analytics, whether the analytics you want and understand, or those you did not invite. Web analytics monitor websites and measure how well and where your site is working. To stay in business with a website that builds growth, you need to know what works and what does not.

For the past 10 years, Google Analytics has dominated the field. It has additional services for big time users and for mobile applications. However, that is where you open the topic to technology and mechanics beyond the reach of most average users. So, you want to keep it simple and leave the tough part to experienced web-designers. Let them build and optimize the analytics into your website for you.
Google Analytics does seem to be under perpetual revision, and full implementation takes some study, even certification. Still, Google Analytics has driven markets for years and remains "the big kid on the block."

A Better Web Experience

Having bought into Google Analytics, you will want to use it to better your website experience. Grasping the technologies and identities the web users employ to reach and read your content lets you revise and repair current versions. For example, here are five ways Google Analytics offer you a better web experience:
1. Bounce Rate data. One primary need to know is just how many visitors hit your landing page and, then, move on to some other site. That is one metric worth studying to determine if it is the look or language of the home page that is losing you potential customers. Perhaps, the site is not fully optimized for mobile or tablet searching. It may indicate that your call to action is not clear or accessible. Or, the date may show that the copy and graphics do not engage the visitor. In any case, with Google Analytics, you know what to fix.
2. Operating System (OS) identity. To succeed, you have to know the operating systems from which your visitors are approaching the site. Mac, Linux, Windows, Android, and more operating systems interact with your site in complexly different ways. Your site's icons, menus, tabs, and other tools must be compatible with most systems to maximize accessibility and navigability. It must be fully functional with all browsers, and it must stay current with revisions in these browsers and operating systems.
3. Flow Visualization information. It helps to visualize what paths your visitors are taking to arrive at your website. It also helps to see In-Page Analytics that detail how visitors interact with the individual site pages. As visitors search through your site pages, you want to ask why they are searching. Your site format may be risking valuable conversions, missing opportunities for greater sales, or making visitors work harder than they want.
4. Conversion Rate reports. Google Analytics report on the number of visits and on the duration of the visit to each page. More important, it collects data on the number of visits that actually convert to a purchase or commitment to service. Low conversion rates will tell you to check your graphics, copy, or calls to action to increase conversion numbers.
5. Audience analytics. All internet searchers fall into demographic groups. They belong to groups designated by age, language, location, gender, buying behavior, and more. You can identify those who are active users as well as those with lifetime returning potential. And, you can benchmark their profiles across industry experience and create meaningful targets for your website performance.

Get Help from the Start

Google Analytics provides and formats the data you need to monitor and improve your website and its productivity. It provides a broad and deep understanding of what your site is doing well and where it needs improvement. It details who your current and potential users might be. It tells you where your viewer traffic is coming from and how it gets there. And, with this data, you can refocus, redirect, and strengthen your marketing.
For example, if visitors are looking at your Home Page and leaving, there may be a problem with the home page. If they are checking your blogs but not looking at your product, you may have a problem. If you are getting viewers from geographic areas you do not serve, you need to make some corrections. You can also see where installing and running Google Analytics is vital to your website's success.
Clearly, Google Analytics are time and work intensive. Interpreting its results and responding to the needs they identify takes some experience and ingenuity that most site owners do not possess. Quite simply, you may need support from professionals. You need such help from the beginning if you want to optimize your website traffic, optimize your page views, and improve your branding. When you realize the added value of digital marketing, you need to create responsive web design. And, for that you need specialized design architects.

10 Ways Bloggers Can Lock Down Their Site

I would like to thank phonedevelop.net for sharing this articlewith their readers. It is a great website for tips and tricks on blogging, website design, search engine optimization and making money online. In particular,I recommend readers check out this article on apps to improve the productivity of your small business.
If you blog and you have the slightest chance of your blog becoming popular by any standard, then you need to lock down your site, and you need to do it now before it is too late. There are way too many hackers out there looking for websites to steal to make a quick buck, and your website is at risk. Here are ten ways you can try to protect yourself and your site from being hacked:
1)WP Security Scan
While there are many different plugins and applications that advertise themselves as ways to entirely secure your blog, you should know that many of them don’t live up to expectations or are simply threats in their own right. WP Security Scan is a different endeavor; this popular and effective tool looks through your blog for loopholes and potential breach points, even small ones.  It is a great tool for starters and doesn’t cost anything for you to use.
2) Create a Backup
While you never want to find yourself in a situation where you have to use a backup, you will be thankful you have one should a server go down or a hacker attack your blog, forcing you to reload. You will also be clear headed whenever you have to make a security decision to temporarily delete or shut down your site because, with a good backup, you can bring everything back with only a few hours of work. If you are wondering about the best backup options, a password protected flash drive is a great choice as well as an external SSD for a larger amount of content.
3) Keep Personal Information Private
The human element is usually what creates a potential security breach in a blog, and the more that your readers, or hackers posing as readers, know about you, the easier time they will have causing you problems. Unless your personal brand is important to the blog try to remain as private on your website and articles as you possibly can. Use a pseudonym and change identifying details in your posts should you feel the need or think that people might be finding out too much.
4) Protect Your Email
Your email is the gateway to your blog, and it needs every bit of protection as your blog. If a hacker gets into it, they can likely get ahold of your blog account as well as other accounts that could lead to things such as identity theft. Give the security information to no one, and refrain from using it for risky enterprises.You may also wish to simply get another email address for you to use for your blog and your blog-related communications, so that you can divide your risks.
5) Lock Down Your Devices
Just as your email has access to your blog and other accounts, your devices are most likely logged in into your blog right now or will automatically log in when opening the webpage. This is a massive and obvious security risk. While it is inefficient to log out every time on your own devices, you should take great care to increase the physical security on those devices. Do not let them out of your sight, and do not let anyone else touch them, even if they are an unwitting friend. The security of your blog matters too much.
6) Avoid Public Networks
If there is anything that you should know about public networks, it is that they are dangerous for you and your blog. The problem is that most are insecure, and without protection, hackers (who don’t need to be skilled at all) can use a simple device to intercept your information (including your passwords) and use it against you to hack your blog or other accounts. If you are going to be blogging at the café or in another public setting, stay offline or find protection.


Avoid Public Networks

7) Use a Virtual Private Network
Related to the threats that a public network poses, a Virtual Private Network is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your privacy from cybercriminal threats and online surveillance. What it does is connect your device to an offsite secure server using an encrypted connection that will protect you. This allows you to hide your IP address to maintain your privacy and use any network that you wish safely, protecting sensitive information about your blog.
There are a lot of VPNs out there for you to pick from however, so Secure Thoughts has compiled a collection of reviews for you to take a look at.
8) Randomly Generate Your Passwords
Regardless of whatever you do to create your passwords, you need to keep them extremely strong and change them every couple of months to keep people guessing. One excellent option is to use a random password generator online as pictured below to create the passwords for all of your important accounts. That way no one will be able to guess what you created, and the only feasible way would be to force the password (which isn’t all that feasible at all).
Randomly Generate Your Passwords

9) Prevent Directory Browsing
If you have directory browsing enabled, hackers can go online and, by combing through that directory, see if you have any security holes or files with security holes on your website. You do not want to allow hackers to see your vulnerabilities and regular viewers will still be able to see your wonderful content, so it is best to turn this setting off. To do so on WordPress, you need to add “Options – Indexes” to the end of the .htaccess file, which you can find in your main WordPress folder.
10) Consider Making it Private
This is likely an unacceptable option to most of you, but some readers might want to consider making their blog private. You will still be able to reach any readers that you value if you invite them, and it is a great option to those who blog for friends/family or an extremely limited clientele. If you want to do so, you can generally find the option in the settings for your blog, regardless of platform. You can also do it at the post level as shown below.
Consider Making it Private



Thank you for reading, and may you have continued blogging success and safety.

Why You Should Use a VPN on Your Smartphone

Why You Should Use a VPN on Your Smartphone



With the emergence of the smartphone came a whole new wave of convenience and multi-tasking. Where laptops and desktop computers used to be the most popular way of connecting, tablets have entered classrooms, and smartphones have become so much more than just communication devices.
The connectivity we achieve with these devices is amazing, and the applications seem to be growing exponentially. At every turn, developers are pushing the limits of what can be digitized and streamlined with this technology, and our lives are becoming more adaptive and synced than ever before.
The Catch
All of this convenience no doubt comes at a price though. As we download more apps and hand over more of our lives to the supreme knowledge of our palm-sized personal assistants, the rules of privacy and information ownership continue to blur and shift. We sacrifice a great deal of our anonymity for these conveniences, and allow everything we do to be traced back to us with great ease, thanks to our phone’s IP address.
This unique numeric code identifies your device, and follows all of your online activity, much like a driver’s license or social security number would. It gives servers your location information, and allows for all sorts of privacy violations to occur.
The more innocent of these violations is still unnerving and annoying – targeted marketing. Have you ever noticed how if you shop around for something repeatedly, or make a purchase, that you suddenly see ads on the sides of websites for the very item you were interested in? This is no coincidence. The website is collecting some of your device’s cookies, and using them to sell to you.
Your IP address is used by ad software in much the same way, only in this particular case it may be to offer you regional products, or refer you to websites and activities that interest people in your geographic location.

On a much more serious and sinister note, your cookies and IP address can be used by law enforcement agencies and government organizations to track and seize your internet records from your smartphone’s activity. Oftentimes, they can do all of this without a warrant, and without your knowledge. Judicial power trumps corporate privacy policies, and your information changes hands rapidly, as you sit none the wiser.
Taking Back Your Privacy
It’s so frustrating that such awesome technology should come with such a steep price. Fortunately, it’s not one that you have to pay. There are ways to block activity logging, hide your IP address, and keep your connection truly anonymous and private while using your smartphone.
The easiest way, and the one that I’ll be explaining here, is by using a VPN. You may have already heard about this type of software, but for those that haven’t, let’s review.
Virtual Private Networks are essentially encrypted tunnels in the internet, provided by host companies for a monthly subscription fee. These tunnels come with rock-solid encryption, and IP address concealment that truly makes you a ghost when you’re online.
VPNs started out as software for computers, and as technology expanded, so did the applications of this concept. Most VPNs now have software that is compatible with smartphone operating systems like Android and iOS, allowing users to protect their privacy, even when using mobile devices.
What’s more is that this service is a huge boon to protection from hackers. Since many smartphone users access the internet on public Wi-Fi networks, they’re at a significantly increased risk for hackers. Problems like identity theft and fraud have shot sky high as a key indicator of this new found problem, which VPNs can virtually eliminate.
Taking Back Your Privacy

How It Works
Here’s the best part: you don’t have to be a tech-genius to use one of these things. VPNs are incredibly simple, and most come with user-friendly software that walks you through the process, and allows you to select a server and connect in seconds.
Basically, the VPN creates a secret tunnel through cyberspace that no one – not even law enforcement – can access or infiltrate. This tunnel connects you to a secure server (usually of your choosing) that the company provides, and gets you online. The VPN’s software automatically reassigns you an IP address, based on the server location you’ve chosen, and before you know it, you’re surfing incognito.
It’s simple, it’s effective, and it really is the very best way to kick the government out of your business, and keep adware from constantly getting into your virtual cookie jar.
The Other Side of the Coin
One additional benefit of using a VPN that many users abroad take full advantage of is their ability to circumvent geographical content blocks. If you’re not familiar with this concept, well, then lucky you.
The Other Side of the Coin

Some countries have very strict limits on the content their citizens and visitors can access on the internet. Countries in the United Arab Emirates for example do not allow access to politically sensitive material, dating sites, pornography, and many social media services. China is on very much the same page, even restricting access to online communication services like Skype and VoIP.
The added benefit of using a VPN is that you can totally get around all of these blocks, regardless of the fact that you’re actually in that area. The IP address blocking technology blows your access wide open by tricking servers into thinking you’re somewhere you’re not, and before you know it, you’re back online.
In addition, users clamoring to get American versions of their favorite TV streaming services like Netflix and HBO Go can access these by connecting to American servers. Win, win, and win.
VPNs: Your New Best Friend
If you’re at all concerned with protecting your privacy when you’re using your smartphone, or even just want to have access to all of your favorite content, VPNs are definitely the easiest way to do that. The best ones have software that do all of the connection configurations for you, so it’s as simple as swipe, select, and connect.

Take back your privacy, and never let geo-blocking get in the way of what you do on your smartphone again.

App Monetization: 10 Revenue Models for App Developers

You're not in business if you haven't built a viable and profitable business model. In other words, if you're building an app having a relatively clear idea of how you're going to monetize it, should be a part of your product strategy.

And it's definitely not an easy task. According to App Store data, over 50% of all app revenues go to less than 2% of app developers. Likewise, high customer acquisition costs are the number one startup killer today, according to Startup Genome report.

Having the right monetization strategy in place makes everything easier. You can justify high CAC, grow faster and claim a bigger market share as a result. If you're working on you app idea right now, here's an overview of popular revenue models.

1. Paid Apps
App Monetization: 10 Revenue Models for App Developers

The paid app revenue model simply means the app costs money to download. Paid apps can cost anywhere between $0.99 to $999.99, and the benefit of this business model is that you make money upfront.

On the other hand, Apple is going to cut 30% of your revenues, and the user-acquisition and subsequently growth becomes harder. The workarounds are free trials and having strong branding and marketing game.

2. Ads

The global advertising industry is a trillion dollar market, and mobile ads represent a $40 billion fraction of it, growing at an incredible rate of 64% a year.

As a developer, you have several options available. You can display 3rd party ads, build your own network, charge a premium listing fee if you're a marketplace or offer classifieds for e.g. job listings if you cater to the particular user base.

The downside, however, is huge. You’re forced to make trade-offs and users usually hate ads. A workaround is combining freemium ad-powered version with a premium ad-free version. A good example is Spotify.

3. Affiliate / Lead Generation

Lead generation can be a great and highly profitable business model, depending on the industry you're in. Many personal finance apps, generate leads for their banking partners and finance industry is willing to pay a premium.

Not surprisingly this space has seen numerous $100+ million mobile app acquisitions in the recent years. (Check $360M, Mint 170M, etc.)

4. Selling Data

If the product is free, the chances are users are the product. A great example of selling data as a business model is Foursquare, which recently signed multiple licensing deals with companies such as Microsoft.



5. Transactional 

If you're a marketplace, charging a transaction fee is the most natural way to make money. Examples include Airbnb, Kickstarter, Uber and a number of payments and investing apps.

6. Virtual Goods

Believe it or not, selling virtual goods is a multi-billion dollar market. According to SuperData Research, the worldwide market for virtual goods will exceed $20 billion this year.

Selling virtual goods can be applied to games, gifts or any other electronic form of goods. It can be a great complementary revenue source in addition to main monetization strategy.

7. E-commerce

You don't have to be an e-commerce company to make money this way. Selling goods can be a great source of additional revenue. A great example is Evernote.



Aside from charging a subscription fee, users have access to an in-app marketplace where they can buy all sorts of physical products including Moleskine, pens and wallets.

8. Freemium

Freemium is probably the most popular revenue model across mobile and web products. The main advantage is scalability. If the success of your startup depends on scaling fast, it's the model to consider.

There are several ways to monetize it. Options include capacity-based freemium (free version up to a capacity, usage, or number of users), feature-based freemium (some features are locked until you pay) and
time-based freemium ( a free trial that expires after a fixed period).

9. Recurring Revenue / Subscription

Recurring revenue model offers great advantages in terms of revenue predictability and lifetime value of customers. Examples include Tinder, Spotify or brain training app Lumosity, and many more.

10. Other

Obviously there are no limits to monetization. It all comes down to innovation and creativity. A great example is the free language learning app Duolingo. It uses power of crowds to sell translation services to customers like CNN or BuzzFeed.
