“Great design often stems from strong constraints.”
For a designer, not being able to move your hand is a strong one. This is what happened to me after a wrist injury I got while playing football.

Quite simply, being able to measure stuff gives you insight into how people are interacting with your business. The trouble is, leveraging the insight can be a bit tricky if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Baidu is the world’s 4th largest Search Engine after Google, Bing and Yahoo. According to the CNNIC (the Chinese government’s agency of internet affairs) there are 710 million internet users in China as of June 2016. Baidu accounts for over 80% of the Chinese advertising market revenue.

Right from waking up in the morning to that annoying alarm tone that we all love to hate, to catching Pokémons while traveling to work, to catching up with friends and family on the many Social Media platforms available to us today, Mobiles are the most desirable medium for advertisers today.

In 2013, a user from MOZ (a famous Search Engine Optimization community) asked whether link building in the Middle-East was dead or not. The response, much to my surprise, was particularly spot-on.
