I have been using Google Analytics on my primary Austin real estate website for quite awhile.  We recently re-designed the site, and I was absolutely amazed by the results with regard to our statistics.  If you are not familiar with the term "bounce rate" from the title above, please allow me to ...
Most years, I debate over whether to bother with going to watch fireworks, and we typically put off planning until the last minute.  Last year, I remember driving my two older kids to see the big fireworks show in Round Rock as dusk was settling over the area.  They used to wait until well after...
