For dear readers who do not celebrate Christmas as we do, I wish
you a Happy Hanukkah, Merry Kwanza, Feliz Navidad, Happy Winter
Solstice and any other I may not know how to pass on.
The New Year is coming soon enough. What will you do to improve
over your actions in 2013?

becomes an exercise in frustration. Especially when the promised
traffic or conversions do not just pop up all over your promotions.
