  • Google Publishes Less Than Stellar Workforce Diversity Stats, Admits “We’re Not Where We Want To Be” Trying to be part of the solution versus being part of the problem, Google has started a conversation on diversity in the workplace by publishing its own lackluster workforce gender and ethnicity statistics.

  • Is It The Site, Or Is It The Analytics? Debugging Google Analytics As I’ve said in previous columns, marketers can no longer rely on their communication skills alone to get the job done.

  • #AskChevron Is Trending On Twitter, But Chevron Isn’t Answering #AskChevron is trending on Twitter, but if you think it was part of a Chevron promotional campaign related to the company’s annual shareholders meeting today in Midland, Texas — think again.
