The reason behind IPv6 adoption rate dramatical drop in China according to Google measurements?

Google has an IPv6 measurement page that reports that their numbers report on the percentage of users that access Google over IPv6.

According to the report by Jan 2020 0.3% of users in China used IPv6 to access Google

However, looking at this metric in dynamic we see the substantial drop starting from June 2019. enter image description here

I failed to find any solid news that may cause such behavior. I have two hypotheses in mind.

  1. Also as it is a percentage metric, they can adjust their calculation on the total internet penetration rate in China.
  2. Previously open discussions between netizens took place on Google Plus groups. In April 2019, Google shut down Google Plus. Technical discussions continue on Chinese-language blogs, forums, and groups. For obvious reasons, discussions must be hosted outside China, and posters must register under pseudonyms. So probably that caused the shift from Google services but I hardly believe that it may cause such plummet.

Restricting website usage for Google Maps API doesn’t prevent it from being used in the browser?

Say I’ve restricted my Google Maps API key to the website abc.com/*. This would mean that no other website domains could use my API key to make requests to maps.googleapis.com.

However, using the API key through the browser url bar to make requests to maps.googleapis.com still works fine. Calls made through Postman also work.

What’s the explanation for this and is there an elegant way to prevent this?

Btw, I’m using the Maps Static & Javascript API. From my understanding both are client-side Maps API and called from the browser?

Setting up a Destination Goal in Google Analytics using Regex

I want to set up a destination goal in GA to determine when a user reaches the end of a flow, or basically has completed a process.

The problem, the URL changes depending on the activity of the user so we have a URL like this (below) which can vary.

apply/UserAccount?execution=e1s2

The S2 represents the last stage in the flow, which is the page I’m trying to capture. However the e1 could be any number depending on the other activities of the user.

Can someone help with writing a Regex to make sure GA captures the every time a user reaches the last page regardless of the execution number? Is there a way to ignore the “E1” value and simply match the rest? I am completely new to this part so I’d be embarrassed to share what I’ve tried 🙂

How to manually add expire header for google fonts css files?

There are 6 static components without a far-future expiration date.

Best practices for Structured Data to make both Google and Facebook happy

I am the effective webmaster of a small corporation. I want to add a Corporation Structured Data object to our corporate site. I hope to accomplish three things by adding this Structured Data:

  1. Google’s Rich Cards will correctly display my company’s name, logo, etc.
  2. Facebook’s Rich Cards (does Facebook call them something else?) will correctly display my company’s name, logo, etc.
  3. Hopefully I’ll get slightly better SEO

I (generally) understand how to write structured data, but I don’t understand where to put my Corporation object in particular. I need Google/Facebook to understand that my company’s website is www.company.com/home. At the same time, I need Google/Facebook to understand that any URI within this domain (e.g. www.company.com/about) should use my company’s name, logo, etc. Where do I put my Corporation object to allow all pages in the domain to “belong to” my object, but only the homepage “owns” the object?
