    Do you put GA and WMT's on your BH projects or is that a sure way to get that site/project found out quicker?

    Thanks and have a great day! :cool:

    Not at all.

    That's basically telling Google, look at all the shady things I'm doing. Please ban my websites.

    For tracking I use an alternative - statcounter - gets the job done. You can use the Bing Webmaster tools if you want some, since I assume you are going mainly for Google traffic?

    You should definitely use something to report your traffic but NEVER use google analytics, there are plenty of other alternatives, maybe not as good but they'll get the job done.

    Thought that might be the case and it makes sense but thought I'd ask. Thx again!

    Thanks all for the quick feedback. How far do you take anonymity? Do you do a separate registrar for domains or can you just use the private domain registration on an existing account? How about paypal, do you set up a separate paypal account (like for PPD stuff) or can I used an established paypal?

    Thanks for helping this n00b out.

    You can use another tracking tool like Clicky as well which is a close alternative to GA.

    and Bing has its own Webmaster tool similar to GWMT

    Hi! It's reversible?? I mean I put GA in my site and my SERP declined I was on 2nd page and went to 6.... I removed the code now, but I'm afraid it get stuck.
