Jetpack Stats Not Displaying On Your WordPress Admin Dashboard? Try This Fix

I signed in to the admin dashboard of my WordPress site only to discover that "Site Stats' is missing from the JetPack menu. No where on the dashboard to access my site stats. The bars in the admin bar have disappeared too.

Immediately, I navigated to the plugins section and noticed that an update for Jetpack plugin. I updated it, yet no changes. I decided to check Jetpack settings and that was where I discovered that it has been disabled. I re-activated it and "Stats" was restored.

How To Turn On Auto Tagging in Your Google Adwords Account

How To Turn On Auto Tagging in Your Google Adwords Account

If you use Google Adwords for your online ad campaigns, it is highly recommended that you enable auto-tagging in order for Google Analytics to display details about your AdWords keywords and costs. This will ensure that you get the most detailed AdWords data in your Analytics account.

Auto-tagging automatically imports AdWords data into Analytics. Combining AdWords data with the rich post-click information provided by Analytics allows you to see what happened on your site after people clicked on your ads.

When you enable auto-tagging, a parameter called gclid is added to your landing page URL when a user clicks over to your site from an ad. For example, if your site is www.mysite.com, when a user clicks on your ad it appears in the address bar as:

www.mysite.com/?gclid=123xyz

Using auto-tagging exclusively provides several benefits over manual tagging. Manual tagging can be time consuming and will only allow you to see a subset of AdWords data. You can read more about the benefits of auto-tagging.

How To Enable Auto-Tagging in Adwords


To enable/disable auto-tagging:

==> Sign in to your AdWords account.
==> Click the gear icon, and select Account settings.
==> Make sure you're on the Preferences tab, and click Edit in the Tracking section.
==> Select (enable) or clear (disable) the Auto-tagging checkbox.

enable auto tagging in google adwords


==> Click Save changes.

NOTE:

>> Autotagging automatically tags the Source/Medium of your AdWords ads as "google/cpc" in Analytics

>> Manual tags should not be used on AdWords ads at the same time as autotagging as this may result in conflicting data in your Google Analytics reports.

Nawhere.ng : Get Fuel Easily At The Cheapest Price In Your Area

Nawhere.ng : Get Fuel Easily At The Cheapest Price In Your Area

There is no light, your business is dwindling and you don't know where to find fuel?

You set out searching for fuel and return hours later with an empty tank because all the filling stations in your neighborhood said "NO FUEL"?

Sad, isn't it?

Cry no more for the dark days are over. nawhere.ng is here to return smile to sad faces. It's a web/application site exceptionally designed to take away all your fuel-related worries.

The team at Nawhere.ng, recognize the essence of time and feel bad whenever you waste it searching for fuel.

To solve all these problems, ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to announce to you, the arrival of nawhere.ng



On nawhere.ng, you can search for any filling station, selling petrol, kerosene, diesel or engine oil, far or near. You can spot their exact locations using our map. You can read people's comments concerning their conducts, products and services or make yours. And you can compare their prices to make a good choice, all from the comfort of your home.

Could it be any better? nawhere.ng gives you the best - when you hear that fuel is selling cheaper at some filling stations but you don't know where; when the news of fuel scarcity hits the media again or when your mechanic advises you to stick to good quality fuel to help your engine, do not be scared.

You want to buy fuel and suddenly you are skeptical. Someone's engine just knocked as a result of adulterated product. No! You don't want that to happen to your beautiful car or generator. And you don't wish it to that man who depends on his keke napeb to feed his family. You want to avoid this because you believe it's unfair for someone to use his hard earned money and buy disaster unto himself. You need a place where direct products are sold not adulterated. Just log on, search for the desired station, go to their down line and read people's comments. You could drop your own review too or ask questions.

And if for any reason, whatsoever, you like using the services of a particular filling station, you could search by name or logo.

Business Loan Beneficiaries in Nigeria Increased From 1,200 to 4,000 By BoI

Business Loan Beneficiaries in Nigeria Increased From 1,200 to 4,000 By BoI

Following the turnout of applicants for its N10 billion facility earmarked for on-lending to small businesses under the Youth Entrepreneurship Support (YES) programme, the Bank of Industry (BoI) has concluded plans to expand the fund size as well as accommodate more candidates under the scheme.

Specifically, the bank noted that due to the high rate of applications received for the YES initiative, it would increase the size of the fund from the initial N10 billion, while considering an increase in the number of would-be loan beneficiaries from 1,200 yearly to 4,000 candidates.

 business loan


Speaking at the assessment exercise of the initiative and inauguration of a seven-man panel to serve on the application screening committee in Lagos, BoI’s Acting Managing Director, Waheed Olagunju, noted that out of the 40,000 applications received, 15,000 or 37.5 per cent were properly completed and thus qualify for consideration for the first segment of the entrepreneurship capacity building programme which is the eight weeks online training component.

We have therefore come to the conclusion that we should provide more opportunities for the youth by increasing the number of would-be loan beneficiaries from 1200 to 4000. Efforts would be made to ensure a fair distribution of the beneficiaries in consonance with the proportion of entries received from the six geopolitical zones”, Olagunju added.

Nawhere.ng: Now You Can Buy Fuel at N86.5/ltr Without Stress

Wow.... what an amazing discovery!

A help is finally here.

Our consciousness is fully awoken to the plight of Nigerians who queue up under the sun in their quest for fuel just to keep their businesses alive. We consider it our obligation, at nawhere.ng, to bring sustainable solutions to all fuel related issues.

With nawhere.ng, the boring days of aimlessly searching for fuel and other petroleum products are permanently over.

fuel price search nigeria


No more spending of days at different filling stations waiting to buy fuel, diesel, kerosene etc, in times of scarcity, which is seemingly a norm in today's Nigeria.

No more wasting of time at filling stations. No more paying two-times the pump price to get some litres of fuel from the black marketers because they refused to reveal to you the very filling stations that are selling at the moment. No more wearing that frustrated look that surges when one drives out to buy 20 litres of fuel and returns hours later with no success, but rather discovers that he has exhausted the 10 litres he had in his tank before driving out. So disheartening!

fuel scarcity


These and more are fuel-related challenges staring the beloved people of this country right in the face.

Well, nawhere.ng says a big "NO MORE" to this negativity. Nigerians can now take relieving breath because the long awaited solution has, indeed, arrived. You can now save money, time and energy courtesy of nawhere.ng.




We are resolved to proffer satisfying solutions to these problems. And this, we have done by creating this awesome portal through which you can:

  4. Can avert the dangers of buying adulterated products as users of this portal are given the opportunity to report any abuse or make recommendations, attributed to a given station and these will be on display for all to see and judge from.

GTBank 737 Code Now Lets You Open Bank Account, Transfer Money, Buy Airtime, Pay Bills, Generate Token, Check Account Balance etc On Your Phone

GTBank 737 Code Now Lets You Open Bank Account, Transfer Money, Buy Airtime, Pay Bills, Generate Token, Check Account Balance etc On Your Phone

In the age of digital revolution, it is the very simple technological innovations that often have the most transformative impact on people and the society. Foremost financial institution; Guaranty Trust Bank plc has once again set a new standard in electronic banking services with the introduction of Bank 737.

Bank 737 is a simple, smart, and safe way to bank anytime, anywhere and on any device. It offers a very simple banking alternative which remarkably does away with virtually all of the limitations of not just conventional banking (going to a bank branch for banking services), but also online banking. While conventional banking requires the physical presence of the customer at a bank branch, and online banking demands Internet access and a mobile application, banking via 737 requires none of the above.

gtb 737 transfer service ussd code


Imagine if opening an account was as simple as dialing a number from your mobile phone or transferring funds was as easy as sending a text message, or paying bills could be done at any time of the day, even long after banking hours.

Imagine if you need to make an urgent transfer online and your data just ran out and you don’t have your hardware token to complete the transaction. Truth is, at some point or the other we have all experienced those moments when we wished banking could be as simple as ABC’s and 123’s. Well, in this case, GTBank has made it as simple as 737.



Bank 737 is a true test of simplicity. GTBank customers no longer need to bother about data or internet connection as the service is built on a USSD interface which enables it work on any type of mobile device. Users are required to simply dial the short USSD *737# from any mobile phone to get started.

GTBank’s 737 offers a wide range of banking services, from money transfer to card less withdrawal, bill payments, airtime recharge and even unique services like token pin generation, checking the status of cheque book request, retrieving internet banking details, amongst others. It is not just about the wide range of services available on the 737, but how the services are delivered; by simply dialing *737# on any mobile phone.

If the simplicity of the Bank 737 is amazing, its speed is even more so. Transactions using the 737 take less than a minute to conclude, meaning it is even quicker than online money transfer. It gets even faster with the availability of short access codes. Among these are *737*0# for account opening, *737*7# to generate token code, *737*37*Amount*Smart Card No# to pay for Star Times Subscription and so much more.

Backing up its simplicity and speed, is its security. The customer is the only one who can access the 737 services for his or her GTBank Account because it only makes use of the mobile number that is linked to the account. Bank 737 also requires customers to personally sign off all their transactions by providing the four last digits of your GTBank Naira MasterCard.

GTBank is regarded by industry watchers as one of the best run financial institutions in Nigeria and across its subsidiary countries. The bank is renowned for its innovative financial solutions, superior financial performance, world class corporate governance standards and excellent service delivery. The bank’s latest E-payment service, known as the 737 banking, is considered a veritable alternative to in-branch banking as it offers a faster, safer and more convenient way toperform financial transactions.
