Cleaning Up Google Accounts!

January 3, 2011

With over 1,000 websites to manage, keeping track of all the action can at time be overwhelming.

Such is particularly the case when trying to manage Google account access ie., Google Analytics, Google Adwords and the myriad other Google account services.

I did learn something today however – you can’t delete a Google Analytics account if its attached to an Adwords account.

Ideally I should be able to consolidate all of my Google Analytics accounts into one account, however doing so doesn’t look possible.

Any ideas how to get all of your Google Analytics accounts into one account?

Google Fading Homepage

October 6, 2009

Google has begun testing a delayed home page display of additional links for both Google searchers and Google account holders.

Instead of landing on a Google page like the one below –

Google users are instead greeted by a link free page.

The delayed display of links is somewhat novel, but as the day wears on attempts to access gmail and other Google services after having waited for five to twenty seconds to get to a clickable link have grown time consuming and bothersome.

Yes – the delayed display of links will otherwise focus Google users’ attention on Google’s homepage and its understated simplicity something Google’s users may have been taking for granted.

Will doing so at some point aggrevate Google’s audience?

Yes.

It may however be a brilliant public relations move by Google.

When their “test” is over, how many seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years in man hours will have been spent staring at Google’s logo and reinforcing their brand in their audience’s collective mind?
