Search Phrases (Queries) in Google Webmasters Tools, Not Google Analytics

Not so long ago, you could look at your Google Analytics account and easily see the search phrases being used to find your site. Don't confuse these with keywords, which everyone says are dead...even Google (http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html). Metatdata keywords in and of themselves are not really of much value, but using them in your content...well, that is the real "Google juice". Google calls these search phrases "queries", but about two years ago, the most critical ones vanished from Analytics, showing "unavailable". If you were using AdWords, you could see them, so it looked like a heavy-handed approach to marketing Google AdWords. It was really more like a repositioning to Google Webmasters Tools.

Removing a Past Employee Mailbox in Google Apps

If those employees are client-facing, not only do you have to worry about filling their spot, you also need to make sure client requests don't fall through the e-mail crack. If you're using Google Apps mail, or the "outsourced" mail service through Google, take these steps to make sure nothing gets lost in the mail: Log onto the web interface for your Google Apps mail -- www.google.com/a/yourdomain.com -- using a username and password with administrator privilege.

While trying to help someone locate the Google Apps Standard setup (the one that lets you setup gmail and shared calendaring with "@yourdomain.com"), we realized that its downright hard to find on the Google site. So here goes: 1) Go to http://google.com/a and select 'standard edition' they keep moving it around and hiding it. 2) Enter the domain name3) Create an admin account 4) You'll have to do the captcha and accept terms of service5) You should now be at the admin dashboard6)...

Getting to your Google Project Site

You have received an invitation to your project web site from 3by400. Now what do you do? How do I get there... If the e-mail address to which the invitation was sent is a Google address (either GMail or an outsourced Google mail domain), simply click the link. When you get to the login page, click the link below the LOGIN button labeled "Don't have a 3by400.com account?". You will be asked to enter your e-mail address. This address must be a Gmail account (either via Google Apps, which is your standard e-mail address if we are managing your e-mail, or...

Internet Explorer - Cannot open the site...

There is a fairly simple fix for the "Internet Explorer - Cannot open the site..." problem that is becoming more prevalent as we experiment with different Javascript libraries and Google API. In the index.php of the template file of Joomla, there should be a segment of code that calls the Google component config.php through a require function, as well as a Javascript call from Google itself. This segment of code was originally set to be inserted before head section the of the HTML. This insertion, however causes IE6 to abort all functions and not load the site. Solution: Remove the code...
