Webmaster News : Google Changes Search Keyword Reporting
Posted by on 2011/11/17 11:11:55 (2850 reads)

Back in October, Google announced they had changed how they report  information to various analytics programs. In short, searches performed on Google by visitors signed into any Google service (Google+, YouTube, iGoogle, GMail are just some) will not report any keywords to analytics programs, not even to Google Analytics.

How this affects you

Maybe it doesn't - if you aren't looking at the keywords that bring people to your website, then this doesn't change anything for you. If you are looking at your keywords and their performance (and you should be), then this will. If you use any of Google's services, it will affect behavior when you search, follow a link and then try to get back to the search results.

ImpressCMS News : ImpressCMS Delivers New Version: 1.3 Final
Posted by on 2011/10/23 4:31:22 (2839 reads)

ImpressCMS logoThe developers of ImpressCMS (www.impresscms.org) have produced a major update and have released version 1.3 as a stable version, ready for live websites. This release is a major revamp of the underlying code, designed to be faster, smaller and better. This also continues to keep pace with the developments in other open source tools - ImpressCMS 1.3 is fully compatible with PHP 5.3 and MySQL 5.2 and above.

Version 1.3 is a transitional release for ImpressCMS, as it is the leading towards the removal of a majority of legacy functions. Most of the modules and themes currently supported by earlier versions of ImpressCMS do work in the new version and that was a major consideration in this release. But, not all modules will be able to make the leap. You are well advised to do some testing before you apply this upgrade. There are some new messages in the developer debug area to assist with the transition.
