Google Reader Advances

I can’t say I was ever a big fan of Google Reader, it was just a little to weird for me. However, the new Google Reader seems to be more advanced and much nicer.

Google Calendar and iCal Do Jive

Humm… much like most of my problems, once I complain about them, they get solved. So here is what I learned about Google Calendar. My public WebDEV calendar just needed time to refresh.

Google Analytics Goals Confuse Me

I’ve been playing around with Google Analytics’ goals recently and I don’t quite get how they work. They sound easy enough, but yet, they are very confusing. For example, when you add your goal, it says e.g. http://www.mysite.com/thankyou.html. But on the ‘My site’s pages are dynamically generated. How do I set up funnels and goals?’ […]
