Google Analytics Tracking Using Javascript Only for ‘WordPress Related Posts’ by Zemanta

Nobody wants to have an outdated plugin, so modifying the core PHP sometimes is not ideal. For WordPress Related Posts by Zemanta, if you want to add Google Universal Analytics event tracking you’ll need to listen for the events using javascript. Sample code below (may be outdated). Enjoy.


//related posts GA event binding
if ($('ul.related_post').length){

$('.wp_rp_thumbnail').click(function() {
ga('send', 'event', 'Related Posts', 'Related Posts Link Click', 'Related Posts Image Clicked');
});

$('.wp_rp_title').click(function() {
ga('send', 'event', 'Related Posts', 'Related Posts Link Click', 'Related Posts Title Clicked');
});
}

Google Instant – Google Instant SEO – Google Instant Adwords Changes

Now that most blogs have repeated all the major points about Google Instant I figured I would post my favorite article about it.

Key Take Aways:
1. SEO isn’t Dead, but search behavior is changing.
2. Google Adwords CTR will go up, and impressions will go down

On a side note: Facebook changed how impressions were calculated as well around the same time Instant came out which also is going to lead to an increased CPM cost / CTR for advertisers. Did anyone else notice this or have any thoughts why they both decided to announce this?

Syracuse Tech Garden: A Great Place To Grow

When I first came to the Syracuse Technology Garden I was a fresh college graduate and I was determined not to ever have to write another resume in my lifetime. As I depart the Tech Garden I am certain that I’ll be only reading resumes from now on. The tremendous support provided from the staff specifically Lynn Hughes, Paul Brooks and Nasir Ali certainly contributed to my growth of 164% month over month profit. Being able to bounce ideas off the brilliant Brand-Yourself team and other companies was validating and a great learning experience. I will be missing all things Tech Garden and will always remember the vital early stage assistance it provided to my business. I encourage anyone looking for a great place to grow to check out the Syracuse Technology Garden.

Babson College Summer Venture Program Video Produced By Insite Motion Media

If you haven’t heard of Babson it is the #1 Entrepreneurial School in the world. Here is a great video production produced by Insite Motion Media. The Blank Center recently launched a student venture program and the first year was a fantastic success and this year looks even better with marketing materials like this. It looks like this program isn’t going anywhere. Anyways I think Insite Motion Media did a great job promoting my favorite college, great job Damian! Another great video production company out of Syracuse, NY is 7053 Productions out of the Syracuse Technology Garden.

Just finalized the move to Boston with 2 entrepreneur roommates, this will be interesting! While I was down there my co-founder and I got the low down on the best Boston co-working spaces and tech tidbits from Ross Beyeler (Boston Web Design Firm).

Some of the most interesting tidbits were the logo design websites:
