This afternoon I bought myself a ham, jolín, which I miss a lot from when my company and my wife’s company gave us one each for Christmas and we found two “jamonacos” at home.

It turns out that she was feeling unwell these last few days and she decided to read and comment top industry data on all my posts (absolutely all of them) as a hobby. How do I appreciate this? It can’t be done. So my Follow My Friend recovered thanks to her goes to Diana Garcés, author of 3 fantastic blogs that I will let you discover.

The difference between counting visits and counting conversions
The first thing I think we should be clear about is the reason for these posts and it lies in understanding the difference between counting visits and counting conversions.

Or from what page or post have you decided to subscribe?
