JavaScript Placement

What is the general rule of thumb for placement of JavaScript if it is to run only on a single page. Do you add it in the page with <script> tags, or do you still bother to throw it in a global js file that is attached to all pages?

Doesn’t really matter. File is downloaded and cached once. I keep my common/un-moduled js all in a single script file and carry it around.

drupal crew signing in

I just started using drupal a few days ago. I have 3 projects on the go… and I’m a little scared, it seems pretty tough. I’m getting to understand modules and blocks and theming… but its a bastard to work with.

Any other drupal devs on OT?

Yep, been using Drupal for most of my projects for a couple years now. Shout if you have any questions, though I know D6 better than D7 at this point

I hear kingtoad is the druapl master …

Any adwords/Adsense consultants here?

Two businesses, one a services group with four physical locations.
The other is a ecommerce site selling high end home furnishings made in boston.

Monthly spend across google, yelp, and Facebook is roughly $5k for the first business.
Business two’s budget is usually closer to $10k a month, but no yelp usage.

Looking for an Adwords/Adsense consultant that can do both. You should have referrals or a profile on odesk/freelancer. I’m sure one of you does this legitimately

Leading slashes in Google Analytics

One one of my sites, all my pages in have content listings like /http://domain.com
/my-product-subdir/http://domain.com
.. is this normal to have a leading slash like that? And to have the reversed order?
Do I need to apply some kind of filter to fix it? Thanks

uh… what?
Those are not valid URLs…
You’re not even on the internet.

Sorry that didn’t make much sense..
When viewing top content in analytics, that is traffic by page on my site, each page is listed with the last portion of the URL moved to the front as such:

Link Trading w Directories For Businesses

Does anyone do that still? I started a directory and its free, its a part of my website for the overall company.

It always worked for me in SEO, for mutual links back and forth, but I usually did it on large scale – 100 links for 100 links with large companies on inner pages.

Now the directory is a different take? Anyone know about effective strategies to building this up?

In real world use for me, it would look something like

select lens type -> select lens material -> select lens design -> display price.

Where should I register a domain?

I have 0 experience doing this and I know there are dozens of options. I want to register a .tv domain to redirect to my youtube channel but I’m not sure which website I should do this through. I don’t care about anything except having the traffic redirected to my youtube. Please help me with a solution.

thanks

This. Look for my thread in TWL I was debating on where to bulk buy a bunch of domains awhile ago, ended up going with GoDaddy again.
