Google Analytics Bots?

Is there a way to get a new code for your site or block bots?

I am getting a lot of visits from Angola and Nigeria and Brazil lately. I assume they are bots or spiders or something like that.

Illustrator SVG bug?

Anyone else having issues saving SVG's from Illustrator CC (2013 & 2014). When I save a piece of artwork on the canvas and then reopen the saved SVG the canvas size has changes and so has the graphic. Seems random. Happens everytime I do an Use Artboard when saving SVG.

Content entry phase in website project

This has been an ongoing problem for my company for as long as I can remember and is only getting worse as the sites we build becoming more complex.

What I'm talking about is the process of adding content (text, images, video, forms, other conversion tools) to a new website. I feel like this phase is largely regarded as inconsequential by most because it's the most tedious and least sexy.

Practically speaking though, especially with the sites we build, it's very, very important. Many of our clients sell experiences (travel and hospitality for example) and a big part of the website is to persuade people to visit. The most effective tools to persuade are the images and their relationships to the words (how we've arranged this content on the page to quickly engage people). This is where we struggle. We don't have anyone (besides myself and a PM) that can look at a collection of photography and video, the IA and the copy and make sound decisions on how to combine that content on the page. For us, content entry requires more than just copy and pasting.

The client can't usually do it because a) they have no ability to choose good imagery (or resize and optimize images) b) they have no idea how to use a simple CMS (even after we provide instruction) c) the timelines don't allow for it normally

The developers I've worked with, though good at writing code, are generally bad with words and pictures. Their poor communication skills often translates to an inability to take a bunch of text and images and arrange it on the page so it makes sense to the reader and hopefully, leads to conversions.

We've considered hiring juniors to do content entry but it's never panned out when it comes to sites with complex storytelling and functionality. They just don't have the experience or comprehension skills to effectively assemble copy and images in a sensible, engaging way.

How do you guys deal with this issue? Have you read any articles that address how to approach this problem?

TL;DR: Content entry is a bitch and we need help developing a better process.

NYC Housing

Hi guys,

I'll be moving to New York August 1st and I'm looking for a 1br apartment either Williamsburg and surroundings (Greenpoint, Bed-Stuy, Clinton Hills, etc) or Hell's Kitchen. Around 2800/month max.

I've been raking Craigslist, Urban Compass, etc but who knows? maybe some of you know a place or even is a designer/landlord hybrid. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance.

housing in the SF bay area!

Hey guys-- I'm looking for a place to live in the bay area for August 1, and it's starting to get down to the wire. My max rent I can reasonably afford is $1000/mo. I'd prefer Berekely/Oakland area, and I have a cat. Anyone know of a place?

...of course I'm all over craigslist. The cat part is what makes it hard.
