Recently Google allow to track at Google Analytics Display Advertising to see demographics and interest of visitors. Althought google removed keywords information from analytics, now this is an interesting and very useful info to help us to make new marketing strategies

You need to do a simple line change at your google analytics Tracking Code:

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-xxxxx-y']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script');

ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';

 

var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

// ]]></script>

change the line in bold by

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-xxxxx-y']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script');

ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://’ : ‘http://’) + ‘stats.g.doubleclick.net/dc.js’;

var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

// ]]></script>

You can also generate an updated basic code snippet that includes the change by going to Admin > property > Tracking Info, and turning on the Display Advertiser Support option.

If you are using wordpress plugin Google Analytics for WordPress (version 4.3.3)

go directory:

wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/frontend

Edit file class-frontend.php and change this line number 300 of code:

300 echo “(‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytic s.com/” . $script . “‘”;

and changed to:

300 echo “(‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://’ : ‘http://’) + ‘stats.g.doubleclick.net/” . $script . “‘ “;

if you are using simple Simple Google Analytics

Go to directory wp-content/plugins/simple-google-analytics/class

Edit file Output.class.php and change line 142:

142 $ret .= ‘ga.src = (\’https:\’ == document.location.protocol ? \’https://ssl\’ : \’http://www\’) + \’.google-analytics.com/ga.js\’;’ . “\n” ;

change by this:

142 $ret .= ‘(\’https:\’ == document.location.protocol ? \’https://\’ : \’http://\’) + \’stats.g.doubleclick.net/dc.js\’;’ . “\n” ;

Its very simple change but if you need help let me know commenting this post

Best Countries for Business 2013

By mjose | Filed in Business, Marketing

For the second year in a row, Bloomberg Rankings presents its exclusive analysis of countries around the world based on how attractive they are to business. With its relatively low cost of starting a business, as well as its import and export efficiencies, among other factors, Hong Kong again takes top honors. The U.S. moves up a notch from last year to second place, and Japan jumps from seventh to No. 3.

For this study, Bloomberg Rankings analyzed data from 11 sources. In all, 161 nations were ranked on six broad criteria that included the cost of starting a business, the cost of labor and materials and the cost of moving goods. The study also considered each country’s level of global economic integration, the “readiness” of its consumer base to participate in economic activity and “less tangible” costs such as inflation and accounting adaptability.

Again, the so-called BRIC countries make a relatively poor showing. China drops to 24th place from 19th last year. India, Russia and Brazil don’t even clear the top 50, ranking Nos. 54, 56 and 61, respectively.

49 56 Peru 61.9% 60.4% 63.4% 66.5% 63.1% 54.6% 63.1%

Countries are ranked on a scale from 0 to 100 percent on six factors.

1. Degree of economic integration (weighting of 10%)

Includes membership in the World Trade Organization, most-favored nation tariffs, correlation to the global market, market concentration, reach of global market research and country risk.

2. Cost of setting up a business (20%)

Includes the costs, steps and time required, as well as financing a business and foreign direct investment.

3. Cost of labor and material (20%)

Includes cost of labor (productivity, compensation, health expenditures, firing costs, minimum wage and size of labor force) and cost of material (natural resource rate of depletion and natural resource rent).

4. Cost of moving goods (20%)

Includes import and export efficiencies, transportation efficiency, logistics performance, liner shipping connectivity and quality of port infrastructure.

5. Less tangible costs (20%)

Includes corruption perception index, international property rights index, inflation, taxes and accounting adaptability.

6. Readiness of the local consumer base (10%)

Includes size of middle class, household consumption, tariff on imports and GDP per capita.

Scores for individual factors were calculated by using the percentage of the maximum for index-based and qualitative criteria. In the 2011 ranking, scores were calculated on a percent-rank basis.

Sources: Bloomberg, CIA World Factbook, Conference Board, Heritage Foundation, International Monetary Fund, International Labor Organization, Transparency International, United Nations, World Bank, World Health Organization and World Trade Organization.

But this info is not very accurate because by example Spain´s GDP is 30% larger than S.Korea at Nominal prices, for example. Unemployment increased from 9% to 26% during the four years of economic adjustment (not 50%), but precisely now the economy is much more productive. Labor costs have fallen and productivity has increased.

Some Spanish companies are among the biggest and more efficient in the World.
1. Inditex (Zara) is the largest cloth retaling company in the World.
2. Telefonica is the largest and more profitable Telecom company in the Eurozone (larger than Deutsche Telekom).
3. Santander is the largest and more profitable bank in the Eurozone (a third larger than Deutsche Bank)
4. Grupo ACS is the largest construction company in Europe (recently bought Hotchief, the largest construction company in Germany)
5. Acerinox is the largest company in the World in the area of stainless steel.
6. Iberdrola is the largest company in the World in the area of renewables.
7. INDRA is the largest European company in the area of flight simulators.
8. Airbus Military has its headquarters in Spain, which is the third shareholder of AIRBUS…etc, etc.

Public Debt is 10 points lower than the U.S. or the U.K., and already got a trade surplus with the rest of the E.U. Spain enjoys the second High-Speed networkd in the World, and Spanish companies like OHL are building the Saudi Arabian high speed railway, and also Spanish companies are enlarging the Panama Canal.

Spain´s life expectancy is 12 in the World while the U.S. is just 40.

mapa sicav españa y como los ricos son mas ricosEn España hay dos instrumentos que permiten a las grandes fortunas pagar muy poco.
En primer lugar, las Sociedades de Capital Variable (SICAV), que gozan de un régimen fiscal muy favorable y cuya constitución no está al alcance del común de los mortales. Son solo para privilegiados. El capital mínimo para crearlas es de 2,4 millones de euros. Estas sociedades sirven para invertir y especular con valores mobiliarios. Mientras las demás tributan a un tipo impositivo de entre el 20 y el 30 por ciento, estas lo hacen al uno por ciento. Y mientras no distribuyan dividendos, reduzcan capital, transmitan acciones o se liquiden, los socios no tributan. Es decir, se crean y ya no se tocan. Se transmiten de unos socios a otros, a hijos, nietos…, de generación en generación, sin volver a tributar, pues ya procuran los fundadores vivir en regiones donde el impuesto de sucesiones esté derogado o se aplique de forma simbólica.
El otro instrumento que permite sortear en parte la dureza del fisco son las Sociedades de Inversión Inmobiliaria (SII). Desde 2009 y por la dificultad que representaba para los grandes patrimonios la condición impuesta a las sociedades de inversión inmobiliaria para que la inversión en vivienda prevalezca sobre la destinada a locales, se crearon a la carta unas sociedades cotizadas de inversión en el mercado inmobiliario, que exigen un capital mínimo de 1,5 millones de euros. Su actividad principal es la inversión directa o indirecta en activos inmobiliarios, tanto en viviendas como en locales comerciales, residencias, hoteles, garajes, oficinas, con el fin de alquilarlos o venderlos después de un periodo de tiempo.
Estas sociedades tributan al 19 por ciento, frente al 30 por ciento de las normales. Y además gozan del privilegio de distribuir los beneficios entre los socios sin que estos tengan que tributar un céntimo. Un ejemplo aclarará este farragoso asunto.
Imaginemos un beneficio por alquiler de locales de trescientos mil euros. Si aplicamos el impuesto a una persona física pagaría 133.000 euros y le quedaría una renta disponible de 167.000. Sin embargo, si es socio único de una de esas sociedades abonaría solo 57.000 euros y el resto, 243.000, se los queda sin tener que tributar más.

Hi guys!, some introduction before we go further. After 10 years of succesful internet business selling consumer electronics reaching PR6 and Alexa 20K, google with his panda and penguin updates kick me from the rank, now i am here almost starting from the begining, with the new rules well learned i decided to try a Joint Venture with someone who can complement me, and what i need is a talent writer, i tried bid job sites but quality is very important and only a good partner can be motivated to write quality content, what topics, how to write it efectively.

Thats why im starting this jv. For starting Im planning to make around 10 website promoting clickbank or CPA Travel, Technology (Consumer electronics) or Food (Gourmet) niches

What i will do?

  • I will do a keyword research
  • Handle the link building, targetting visitor mostly from the search engine.
  • Take care all the cost for the link building, servers, seo tools,
  • Invest for domain and hosting.

We will create a mini sites with 40-50 articles on each site targetting around 10-15 keyword depends on the niche.

I would like to JV with some TALENTED ARTICLE WRITERS with such criteria:

  • Know how to write article for product review, press release, general article with friendly, professional tone etc ,optimized for the search engine
  • Know how to do a product research for the article
  • Know how to setup a basic wordpress site

What you will do?

  • Update the site content frequently, 2-3 articles/week/site
  • Provide original article, rewrite and manual spun article for tier1/2 link building
  • Setup a new clickbank/CPA account only for this project with your name and address for the payee name to accept the payment and i will check those account weekly. We use use the account on the site and we split the profit 50-50

Risk

  • You will have the full control for the domain and hosting, using your own clickbank account on the site, no money need to sent to me, so no risk for me to scam your money
  • We will create 2 different domains by niche, 1 will be registered by you and the another by me
  • If youre not satisfied with the result and decided to stop our jv, i will buy the site from you with price we agreed for, or selling the site on flippa and split the profit 50-50 or i will decided to let you own the domain

All my partners including me are not allowed to collect visitor email or setup a fan page on the site.
You can choose how much site you want to handle. 1 or 10 depend on you.

I’m open to negotiations and will accept reasonable terms.

Contact me if you’re interested.

Only looking for ONE partner. The guy with the best tried and tested idea will be prioritized.

You can be a newbie or a seasoned pro. It all depends on your method.

We are getting more negative trades now because we are entering in trades before bar close, i am testing this system to know if it will be better entering trades after bar close or taking intrabar trades, i have added an ADX filter to MjoseScalper from tomorrow we will use an ADX trend strength filter to avoid trades when we are in a choppy market.

This weekend i have created my first version of MjoseScalper automated system, I dont need to stay all the day in front of the computer with bloody eyes seeing a boring chart and waiting indicators give me the signal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The bad news is that i can not backtest this bot with Ninjatrader because Ninjatrader can not backtest with ticks or using intrabar orders, all orders are completed at the close of the bar. So I will need to test in realtime to see intrabar orders with Ninjatrader.

I tested today but it was not running all day, I have 1 negative trade and another positive, first thing i would like to see testing using this bot is to study if it will be better to wait until bar close or enter the intrabars trades. The first version of the bot use only ATR bands as confirmation to enter the trade and price to enter should 3 ticks before the ATR band to be in the range of prices and to have more probabilities.

First trade was negative, if this time i wait until bar close, this trade was not done at 10.18, but it at 10.30 trade when bar is closed and it could be a winner trade, but was not ejecuted because i stopped the bot, i have to leave out.

This trade was entered at the time bar was closed and was a winner trade.

From last 3 months there is no more than 3 days with downtrend, so today should be a day where price should go up, however this have not happened until 15.00 PM, and the day finished almost at same price that was open.
I had 3 trades today, first trade was by error because i opened position out of my trading hours, later 11.30, at 11.45 aproximately, when i noticed that inmediately closed position and i got -1 tick negative. If i had not close my position inmediately i was loose 4 ticks instead only 1.

My second trade, as you can see in the picture below, all conditions were good to enter the trade, so i enter short 2438 at 14.41 PM with TP at 2434 and SL at 2442, but in few minutes prices reached my TP but my order was not filled, and 3 minutes later my Stop loss was reached. This happen only 10% of the times, perhaps i should increase stop loss a little.

Before third trade at 15.00 aprox. i have another opportunity, but i was distracted thinking whats going on with my last looser trade, we are not machines, after i recovered my attention to the chart, i entered in my third trade of the day short again at 2432 with TP 2429 and SL 2436 and i got +3 ticks.

From 9.00 AM we have some other opportunities but ATR was too close,  perhaps you can find more secure to enter at 9.00 or 9.30 where looks a good downtrend but nobody cant know how many time price could continue with downtrend, but what we know is the highest probabilities to enter safely and have at least 4 ticks positives at trades 1 y 2.
