Manage Javascript Code On Your Blog In A Better Way Using Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager, another awesome tool from Google’s arsenal can be used to manage javascript snippets on your website in a better and more efficient way. Your site could contain multiple javascript snippets like – For Eg: Google Analytics code, alexa’s Analytics code etc. With Google Tag Manager you can organize all these codes in one place which will be much easier to manage and also you wouldn’t need any more technical knowledge than just a free hand to copy-paste some codes.

Although this tool has been around since 2005 but i think not manypeople are utilizing it to increase their productivity. This is the reason which tempted me to write this post on – How To Setup And Manage Google Tag Manager.

So What Is A Tag ?

A tag (in reference to Google Tag Manager) could be defined as javascript snippet which sends information from your site to third-party applications like Google Analytics, Adwords, Crazy Egg etc.

Google Tag Manager operates around three main elements: Tags, Rules and Macros.

  • Tags = A tag is HTML code that executes (or fires) on a page.
  • Rules = Specify when a tag should be fired such as when a specific page is loaded or in response to an action on the page.
  • Macros = a pre-defined set of conditions that allow rules to be executed.

Why You Need It ?

With so many different codes on your webpage it becomes bloated and bogs down on speed. With Google mentioning in clear words that How Speed Is Now A Ranking Factor, It could very well throw your site among the one’s being penalized. This being the biggest factor but apart from that it also provides a peace of mind while managing different codes just from a single place.

How It Works ?

Google Tag Manager works via its own container tag that you place on all your website pages. The container tag replaces all other tags on your site, including tags from AdWords, Google Analytics, Floodlight, and 3rd party tags. Once the Google Tag Manager container tag has been added to your site, you update, add, and administer additional tags right from the Google Tag Manager web application.

How To Implement It ?

To Implement Google Tag Manager on your site follow these simple steps :-

Setup An Account :

Creating a Tag Manager account is easy, you just need to sign-in here with your Google Id and you are good to go.

Create A Container For Your Website :

If you have multiple websites it is better to create multiple containers for each of them so that it will be easy to identify.

Add The Container Snippet Code To Your Website’s Source Code :

Once you have successfully created your account and a container for your website, you will be presented with a container code which you need to add to your site’s source code. This should not be big task for an average user as you just have to copy and paste the code.

Create Tags For Javascript Codes On Your Website :

The next step is to create separate tags for every different javascript code on your website. For Example – If you have codes for Google Analytics, Adwords And Crazy Egg then you need to create different tags for each of them.

Publish The Tags :

Lastly, the tool will show you a preview of what you have just setup and you can click Publish.

Remove The Javascript Code From Your Website :

Now that you have created the tags on your Google Tag Manager account and implemented the container code on your website – you don’t need your old javascript code for Google Analytics and other snippets on your website, remove them and your site should now be much lighter as compared to earlier.

Conclusion :-

Using Google Tag Manager at first could seem like a lot of work but while looking at the big picture i.e., now that you don’t have to change multiple codes for a minor change at different places would make you blessing Google for this awesome tool.

So, Have you moved to Google Tag Manager yet? How did you find the transition?

In layman terms, this update will encourage webmasters to make their site’s more friendly so that they don’t loose traffic. As a large chunk of user base is on mobile devices so it’s natural for Google to make ‘Mobile Friendliness’ as a ranking factor.

Whether you are targeting desktop or mobile traffic or both your site must be considerably faster, means no more that 2.5 to 3.0 seconds loading time.

You can use this guide to optimize your website for speed.

Conclusion :-

So, as many experts are suggesting – don’t wait for this update to hit your rankings make the changes before-hand. If you’re thinking about making these changes after 21st of April then you will be in trouble as Google will need sometime to crawl your site and making necessary updates to it’s index…#Don’tWait

How To Create And Optimize Robots.txt For Search Engines

Robots.txt, a file residing into the root directory of your website which gives directions to spiders and crawlers, is one of the most under appreciated factors in your SEO list. This file follows Robots Exclusion Standard also known as Robots Exclusion Protocol. It is a standard used by websites to communicate or direct web crawlers and spiders on whether to crawl a certain webpage or not.

robots.txt

According to Wikipedia : The standard specifies the instruction format to be used to inform the robot about which areas of the website should not be processed or scanned. Robots are often used by search engines to categorize and archive web sites, or by webmasters to proofread source code. Not all robots cooperate with the standard including email harvesters, spambots and malware robots that scan for security vulnerabilities. The standard is different from, but can be used in conjunction with, Sitemaps, a robot inclusion standard for websites.

Why Should You Care About Robots.txt?

  • Improper usage of the robots.txt file can hurt your ranking
  • The robots.txt file controls how search engine spiders see and interact with your webpages
  • This file is mentioned in several of the Google guidelines
  • This file, and the bots it interact with, are fundamental parts of how search engines work

What You Should Do First :-

  • Check if you have a robots.txt file already.
  • If yes, whether it’s blocking important files from crawlers and spiders.
  • If no then Do you need it ?

Determining The Existence Of Robots.txt :-

To check whether a robots.txt file exists already or not, you just have to enter your url into the address bar and concatanate it with /robots.txt.

For Example :- wwww.technonerdz.org/robots.txt

Determining Robots.txt’s Effect On SEO :-

To determine whether your robots.txt is blocking important files which could help search engines rank your page, you can use this tool by FeedtheBot. The tool works mainly on Google’s guidelines for webmasters.
But to understand completely how robots.txt works you need to understand it’s contents by yourself.

Keep reading to learn whether your site needs a robots.txt file or not.

Need Of A Robots.txt file For You ?

There are many cases where a website doesn’t need a robots.txt file but including one doesn’t hurt anyone either. But if you are not sure whether your site needs it or not you refer to the following points and if any one of them stands true for you then you must have a robots.txt file.

  • You want some of your content to be blocked from search engines and site crawlers.
  • You want your underdeveloped but live site not to be indexed until it is fully developed.
  • You want to block malicious bots from crawling your site and unnecessarily loading up your server.
  • You need to give proper directions to bots for affiliate or paid links on your site.
  • You need one or all of the above things.

In case you decide that you are better-off without a robots.txt file – it’s Ok but in that case bots with full access to your site and if you want to create this file you can follow the easy guidelines below.

How To Create Robots.txt For Your Site :-

Robots.txt is nothing but a text file in your sites root directory. To create one – just open a text editor and start typing the directives you want for the crawlers.

Directives :-

Allow Indexing Of Everything : If you want the spiders to crawl and index everything on your website add these rules to your robots.txt.

User-Agent: *
 Allow: /

Disallow Indexing Of Everything : To block the spiders from your site completely, you need to use these directives.

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /

Disallow Indexing Of A Specific Folder : Add these directives to block just a specific folder on your site to the crawlers.

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /folder/

Disallow Access To A Particular Bot : Sometimes you want to block access for a particular bot because of many reasons like content scraping, spamming or a bot with malicious activities.

User-Agent: Googlebot
Disallow: /

Set Crawl Rate : Setting crawl rate means advising crawlers and spiders about the amount of traffic they can send to your site in a given amount of time. Note that it could make Google and other search engines reduce the frequency they visit your site.

User-agent: bingbot
Crawl-delay: 10
where the 10 is in seconds.

Note that Google doesn’t provide support for crawl delay directly from the robots.txt but you can set crawl limit from the webmasters tool.

Conclusion :-

So now that you know how to create and use a robots.txt file, it’s up to you to implement it on your site. To get a nice further reading i must recommend this great article from SEOBOOK – Robots.txt Tutorial.

If this article helped you create a highly optimized robots.txt for your site or if you find it useful enough then don’t forget to share it among your peers.

Google, a search engine which serves about 80% of total search engine industry traffic could be used to find secrets on the web which is difficult to find otherwise.

Using single line commands one can search for personal details like email, passwords, admin accounts, webservers etc.

Recently, i read a book ‘Dangerous Google :: Searching For Secrets‘ by Michal Piotrowski which completely changed my view of Google forever.
The author wrote a very sticky line which engaged me into reading the book :-

Information which should be protected is very often publicly available, revealed by careless or ignorant users. The result is that lots of confidential data is freely available on the Internet – just Google for it.

The above commands (queries) are from this book only, to know more give the book a quick read-through.
I don’t know the author but the information provided makes me share it (hope it’s OK with the author).
