It is now late October 2015, so the list of days works in not going to be a lot.

Ive been looking at various traffic exchange sites and software, and think they are not very useful as the traffic is generally not people and are Bot traffic.

I have read this may increase the Alexa ranking, but will have to see.

Below are the days i have done work on this. There will be some days not mentioned, but those will be either personal days, or none work related days.

 

Google Analytics is Google’s website statistics programGoogle Analytics Screenshot. Below is a screenshot of statistics for a website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These stats are not of own of our clients websites. Google Analytics gives a massive selection of reports for you to view.

You can view people that are viewing your website and get even more specific stats like

  • city of the visitor
  • country of the visitor
  • browser and operating system of the visitor
  • screen resolutions of your clients.
  • time they spend on your site

These results help you, the client, target customers that you wish, ie, if you see a lot of people exiting on a certain page, you can check the content to see what could cause the exit.

We have used various statistics programs in the past, and do also offer awstats which does not offer as much of a report, but still gives the basics like enter points, time online, most active pages etc.

If you wish us to send you a weekly / daily report on your site, contact us and we will set it up for you. We can set it up to send your stats to you daily, weekly, monthly. The stats can be in CSV , PDF  or excel format.

If you have a internal application to read these stats, you could do some reports of your own. We can develop a web application to view the Google Analytics reports, so let us know.

We are currently developing a new job/employment portal. The site will be Coldfusion and MySQL Database powered backend.

The site JobSpy is getting developed at the moment, and will offer a full range of recruitment services. These services will range from simple CV generation (various formats), through to the system offering services for the Recruitment companies, like placing positions, viewing potentional applicants and messaging to and from applicants.

The applicants will have the option to restrict access to there profile, so if they are not currently looking for a job, they will be hidden in the searches.

The CV generation process will include the following formats.

  • PDF
  • DOC
  • Adobe Flashpaper format
  • HTML

Let us know what you think should be on the site as well.

I’ve got a decision to make soon for when my phone contract gets renewed. I’m not sure if I should go with Blackberry again or go for an Android based phone.

I’ve been on a Blackberry for close to 5 years and have been happy with the phone and the BIS services. My reason for wanting to go with an Android is

  • Its Google based and love there apps
  • there seem to be a lot more google apps than BB apps

Does anyone have suggestions?

I’m having a weekend at Dragons Peak Caravan Park. It is great here! The only problem is the cold. Sleeping in a tent when it is getting close to 0 degree Celsius is not good, but the visiting family are in the caravan. Today I’m going to go for a walk across the valley and have a look back at the caravan park. I will take some pics and post them up.

dotDurban domains might become available.

dotDurban domains might be available. The project would allow companies to register domains like beach.durban or your companyname.durban. This would probably be more suited towards local companies in Durban, than national companies.

The expected launch will be around beginning of September 2013 (according to there website).

Below is there logo.

Basics

Affiliate marketing is a type of online marketing. It involves the Affiliate (marketer) marketing products online and getting a commission for the sales made through the persons site.

For this to work the affiliate would normally have a website on which he would advertise a product that he has chosen the promote. In the affiliate programs control panel, he would be given a unique link to use on his website. This link tracks the clicks sent to the affiliate program.

An affiliate link is normally something along these lines.

(this is not a live link)

The parts of this link are the domain part –

and link page – link.php

and the affiliates unique tracking code – affid=dfg5ryt4tge4342

All clicks now sent via this link would be credited to the person this link belongs to.

The affiliate program  then tracks all sales from the site and credits the referrer (affiliate) the commission.

 

This is a very basic guide, which I’ve written. There are plenty more in-depth guides to affiliate marketing online.

A great affiliate program to get started with is Clickbank as it has thousand of different products you can market and build your revenue on.
