Concerned about Google and others snooping on your online activity? Then you might want to install a free browser add-in called Do Not Track Plus that can tell Google (and other marketers) to mind their own business.

The app, made by Abine , of Boston, is designed to block advertisers, social networks, and marketers from tracking you online via your Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers. More specifically, Abine says its Do Not Track Plus plugs the hole that has allowed Google to circumvent browser privacy protection in both the Internet Explorer and Safari browsers. In short, it blocks Google's attempts to activate +1 and DoubleClick activity in your browser—even when it's built-in protections have been circumvented by Google.

After installing the add-on, which works on Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, a small icon will appear to the right of the browser's address bar. It will tell you if a website wants to send data from your visit to other companies.

Almost anybody uses Google Analytics to track visitors of a website.
The very first question of a newbie who starts using Google Tag Manager is how to enable Analytics tracking.

If you are using the very basic implementation and you are not using any event tracking or e-commerce code, it is very easy to migrate your Analytics tracking to Google Tag Manager.

That’s it! Do not forget to remove any hard coded or somewhere enabled Analytics tracking. If you are using WordPress, you should first disable any related plugins like Yoast Google Analytics or Google Analyticator and check your theme settings. Some theme authors include the ability to enter your Analytics ID to include your tracking code without any other plugin.
