Google Analytics Picks Up Speed

Google has officially released their asynchronous tracking tag, and are encouraging webmasters to upgrade their sites to use it.  The new tag operates “off to the side” of the regular calls to your server for your web page and does not weigh down your sites load speeds.  Since Google recently said they are looking at site load speed as a ranking factor, this new tag could be a blessing to some sites.

According to Google, the new tag “takes advantage of browser support for asynchronous JavaScript to enhance the speed in which the tracking code is loaded”.

Using the new tag also enables you to “place the Analytics snippet higher in the page without delaying subsequent content from rendering”. In other words, you will speed up your site as your page no longer has to wait for Google to access your analytics.  Pretty Sweet!

Here are a few more links for you to get you started moving to the new tag.

Get to it people.  ;-)

  • Article and Link DirectoriesWhy Link and Article Directories Are Valueless

    There was a time when Google recommended for websites to place links on link directories and article directories. This made link building a cinch because most directories were begging for content to populate their websites. Before search engines became the de facto way to find information on the internet, link directories and portals were the […]

  • Create New SEO Habits for 2015

    When potential clients or impatient business owners approach Tampa SEO, often times we are met with the expectations that SEO is something that is just “slapped” on to a website.

  • Do I Need to Submit New URLs to Search Engines?

    I’ve heard this question a lot recently, even today. People ask whether it is useful to submit all new URLs to search engines or even to re-submit your XML sitemap when new content is published.

    In essence, no, you do not need to submit every new URL on your website. There are many reasons for […]

  • Thank You Page Optimization for Better Service and Higher Profits

    Despite being an adult, whenever I mention to my mom that I’ve been invited to something special, she always encourages me to send a thank you note.
