Half of Global Online Traffic to Luxury E-commerce Sites Are From Where?

RUSH HOUR: SEMrush, the search engine marketing-solutions provider, crunched data of global consumer traffic to the top fashion e-commerce web sites and found that half of the visitors are from the U.S., while 10 percent hail from Russia and about 8 percent from the U.K. And when the firm looked at when consumers searched for nearby fashion retailers, December had the highest traffic. Additionally, SEMrush found that the top searches for nearby retailers included Macy’s, Foot Locker, DSW, Nordstrom, Zara and the Gap. The latest data follows an earlier report from the firm that found the most-searched fashion item was a “white dress.”
In a separate e-commerce trends report from SEMrush, the firm noted that direct traffic to web sites garners the largest portion of e-commerce traffic, while mobile continues to gain more share. Meanwhile, desktop traffic “prevails for all the industries analyzed in the study.” Researchers at the firm revealed that e-commerce firms need to improve their ability to facilitate consumer reviews as it remains the most popular search engine results pages, or SERP. The company’s analysis was based on 8,000 of the most trafficked global e-commerce sites. And the report examined traffic patterns, marketing, ad size, promotions and the emotional triggers of

Newscaster Sneaks Taylor Swift Song Titles into Her Traffic Report — and the Singer Loves It

This newscaster’s reputation certainly won’t suffer after getting approval from Taylor Swift herself.

Laura Hettiger, who works for St. Louis’ KMOV station and serves as co-host of Great Day St. Louis, decided to put a musical twist on her morning traffic report, Friday, in honor of the 27-year-old songstress dropping her new album.

Hettiger incorporated Swift’s song names and lyrics into the broadcast, like advising viewers that there was plenty of “Blank Space” on the roads heading downtown and to be “Fearless” as they headed out to clear highways.

Swift herself saw the report thanks to her family members in the area and made sure to alert Hettiger to her approval via social media.

“My cousins in St. Louis sent this to me,” the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer wrote on Twitter Saturday. “I LOVE YOU @LauraKHettiger.”

The Grammy winner dropped her new album, Reputation, shortly before midnight on Thursday, and it appears to be everything her Swifties have been hoping for.

While many of the songs reveal intimate details about her secret relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn, Swift — who spent most of 2016 in hiding — also tells her side of the story on her past relationships and her feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West.

She additionally wrote a heartfelt letter to fans in Reputation‘s album booklet. “Here’s something I’ve learned about people,” she wrote. “We think we know someone, but the truth is that we only know the version of them they have chosen to show us.”

She continued, “We are never just good or just bad. We are mosaics of our worst selves and our best selves, our deepest secrets and our favorite stories to tell at a dinner party, existing somewhere between our well-lit profile photo and our drivers license shot.”

“I’ve been in the public eye since I was 15-years-old. On the beautiful, lovely side of that, I’ve been so lucky to make music for a living and look out into crowds of loving, vibrant people. On the other side of the coin, my mistakes have been used against me, my heartbreaks have been used as entertainment, and my songwriting has been trivialized as ‘oversharing,’ ” added Swift.

“Let me say it louder again, louder for those in the back… We think we know someone, but the truth is that we only know the version of them they have chosen to show us,” she concluded. “There will be no further explanation. There will just be reputation.”

Friendship Between Dog and Duck Is So Cute it Stops Traffic

It’s the sweetest pit stop in the world.

Max the 12-year-old husky and Quackers the 4-year-old duck live along a country road in Strout, Minnesota, where drivers can often spot them sitting side-by-side, muzzle to beak.

According to WCCO, the pair are best friends and have been for years. Like a precious phoenix, their bond rose from the end of another. Max used to be inseparable from his owner’s other husky Sasha, but when she passed away, the dog was left alone.

Aware that he was hurting, Max’s family adopted Quackers. It didn’t take long for the duck to imprint on the canine, and for Max to catch feelings too.

“He was without any friends, and so Max would sit next to his pen all the time and I think they just kind of bonded that way,” owner Patrick Riley said. “After we let him out, they just never left each other’s side.”

Now, the duo does everything together. They sleep on the same carpet square, share their meals and go on long strolls along the road near their home.

“We see people stopping over there all the time. The traffic gets clogged up over there sometimes because of all the pictures getting taken,” Alisa Godejahn, Max and Quackers’ neighbor, said.

A friendship this beautifully unique, just can’t be ignored.

Joe Plumeri Tells New York Law School Grads: ‘Go Play In Traffic’

Businessman Joe Plumeri, who currently serves as vice chairman of the First Data Board of Directors, gave the commencement address at New York Law School on Tuesday. He dropped out of New York Law School in the 1960s to pursue a job on Wall Street but was awarded an honorary degree this week.

In his energetic speech, Plumeri said graduates must have commitment, purpose and vision in order to have success. He encouraged graduates to commit fully to whatever they wanted to do, using the analogy that Vikings burned their ships when they landed at a place they wanted to conquer. But without purpose, Plumeri said, they won’t succeed.

“The purpose has got to be genuine concern for what you do and the people you do it for,” he said.

Plumeri told the graduates to “go play in traffic” to find their vision.

“Now you’re saying, ‘What’s wrong with the guy? He wants me to go get hit by a car!'” Plumeri said. “That’s not what I want you to do. What I want you to do is engage.”

He further explained that “playing in traffic” is all about going out there and exploring your vision, making blunders and taking risks.

“Go out, play in traffic,” he said. “Something’s gonna happen eventually.”

Police: Bobbi Kristina Brown Was In Traffic Wreck

ATLANTA (AP) — Whitney Houston’s daughter was involved in a traffic accident that injured two people days before she was found face-down in a bathtub, according to a police report obtained by The Associated Press.

Bobbi Kristina Brown lost control of her Jeep Liberty when a tire blew out on Jan. 27, crossing into oncoming traffic and colliding with another vehicle. Police in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell described “extensive damage” to both vehicles. Brown’s passenger and the other car’s driver were hospitalized. Brown blamed tire failure, and officers found a nail in the Jeep’s blown-out right rear tire, the incident report says.

Brown’s family said she’s been “fighting for her life” since she was found in her bathtub four days later, face-down and unresponsive. A police investigation is ongoing and few details on her condition have been released.

It wasn’t the first time police have been called to the townhouse in adjacent Alpharetta, Georgia, where Brown has lived with her partner, Nick Gordon. Brown frequently referred to Gordon as her husband, but a lawyer for her father, singer Bobby Brown, said they never married.

The Associated Press requested records from the Roswell Police Department, the agency that responded to the Jan. 31 call, for any previous contact with Brown or Gordon.

On Jan. 23, a security guard at their gated community called 911 reporting a fight at Brown’s address. The guard said a neighbor reported people “hitting each other and swinging” outside the townhome. The guard did not describe the people involved, and no one was there when officers arrived.

Police were called to the home on July 8, 2013, and Gordon told officers Brown was unresponsive after falling on the floor. Gordon described it as a seizure, but Brown told police she had no history of medical conditions and had never had a seizure. The incident report says Brown was disoriented and was taken to a hospital.

Last month’s crash also wasn’t Brown’s first car wreck. Police in Alpharetta cited her in November 2012 for failing to maintain her lane after the black Chevrolet Camaro she was driving landed in a ditch. No injuries were reported in that crash.

Gordon has also been cited for driving infractions. On Dec. 30, he was driving Brown’s Lexus and she was a passenger when police said Gordon rear-ended the car in front of him at a red light. Roswell police arrested him then on an unspecified Fulton County warrant.

Last August, Roswell police found Gordon with thick speech and droopy eyes at the scene of an overturned BMW, an incident report says. He was cited for failure to maintain his lane, driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a suspended license.

Gordon was also cited in April 2011 on a charge of pointing a pistol at another person during a fight. Brown was cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol during that same incident.

Two Deer Stop Rush Hour Traffic On The Golden Gate Bridge

It was rush hour on Friday in San Francisco, and traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge came to a grinding halt — all thanks to two rather unexpected guests.

According to NBC News, two deer wandered onto the Golden Gate Bridge at around 5.30 p.m. and promptly stopped up the flow of traffic on three northbound lanes. The deer appear to have entered from the southern end of the bridge, the news outlet said, and were running toward Marin County.

The duo reportedly got off the bridge safely and commuters were soon able to continue their journeys.

“You just don’t see this everyday,” wrote one Instagrammer who snapped a photo of the two deer sauntering across the bridge. “#deergate2014”
