The Nigerian Embassy in Germany has suspended a senior security staff who allegedly solicited sex from a woman before renewing her passport in a viral video.

In the video, the official identified as “Mr Martin” was caught with his pants off in a hotel room after he had allegedly asked the unnamed lady to have sex with him before he could release the passport.

“Let me explain, please. Please, it is not like that,” a shocked Mr Martin said on camera.

When asked to explain, he kept saying “please, please, please.”

The voice behind the camera accused Mr Martin of several unwanton sexual encounters he had in the past in exchange for delivering his official duty.

“Your cup is full, Martin. Your time is up,” the voice said.

A few hours after the video surfaced online on Tuesday, the embassy announced the suspension of the official who works as local staff in the security unit “with immediate effect.”

While it did not give his name for “legal reasons,” the embassy noted how the official had been in connection with allegations of sexual abuse and “other serious criminal activity in return for official services”.

The Nigeria’s Ambassador in Germany, Yusuf Tuggar, said the embassy had opened an investigation into the matter as no form of abuse would be condoned.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse of office and especially of sexual misconduct. Our full resources are being deployed to investigate a very serious incident and any other abuses that this inquiry may reveal,” he said.

“The investigation is taking place with all the urgency and diligence that this very serious situation demands.

“When due process is complete, any guilty party can expect to face the full weight of the law. Our heartfelt sympathies are with any innocent victims of abuse,” Mr Tuggar was quoted as saying in the statement.

How to Install Microsoft Clarity Analytics in WordPress

Recently, a reader asked us how to install Microsoft Clarity analytics on their WordPress website?

Microsoft Clarity is a free analytics tool that helps you analyze how users engage with your website with click tracking, scroll tracking, and heatmaps.

In this article, we’ll show you how to easily install Microsoft Clarity in WordPress, step by step.

Installing Microsoft Clarity Analytics in WordPress

What is Microsoft Clarity and Why Use It?

Microsoft Clarity is a free analytics tool for websites. It helps you see the most popular pages on your website and how users click, scroll, and interact with those pages.

The most important feature of Microsoft Clarity is their data visualization. This includes click tracking, heatmap reports, session recordings, and more.

Heatmaps show a visual report of how users move their mouse, where they click, select or scroll.

Similarly, session recordings help you see how users view your content, where they spend more time, and what takes them away from your WordPress website.

This information helps you create a better user experience for your users, improve performance, and boost sales conversion.

Microsoft Clarity vs Google Analytics – What’s the Difference?

Google Analytics is the best analytics solution on the market because it offers a lot of in-depth tracking features. Microsoft Clarity, on the other hand, focuses on the visualization of user interactions with heatmaps and session recordings.

Google Analytics helps you track almost anything on your website. It also has enhanced eCommerce tracking, conversion tracking, detailed reports, etc.

Microsoft Clarity is a new platform, and it’s currently not an alternative to Google Analytics’ far superior features. However, you can use Microsoft Clarity alongside Google Analytics to unlock features like heatmaps and visitor session recordings because Google doesn’t offer those features yet.

Before Microsoft’s analytics feature, many website owners would use paid heatmap solutions like Hotjar or CrazyEgg alongside Google Analytics, but now you have a free alternative to those tools.

We recommend installing Google Analytics on all your websites. After that, you can follow our guide below to install Microsoft Clarity in WordPress.

They both work along quite well without affecting your website’s functionality.

How to Install Microsoft Clarity Analytics in WordPress

It’s easy to add Microsoft Clarity to any website including your WordPress site. You’ll need to sign up for Microsoft Clarity, and then add a tracking code to your website.

We’ll take you through the process step by step.

Signing Up for Microsoft Clarity

First, head to the Microsoft Clarity website and click on the ‘Get Started’ button.

You need a Microsoft, Facebook, or Google account to sign up.

As soon as you sign up, you will see the Clarity dashboard with a popup to add a new project.

Go ahead and enter a name for your project. You can use the name of your website to make it easily recognizable. Next, enter your website URL and choose a site category.

Note: Clarity should not be used by finance, medical, or government-related websites.

Setting up a new project in Microsoft Clarity

Once you’ve created your new project, it will then be listed in your dashboard.

You need to click on it to see the tracking code that you have to add on your site:

Copying the Clarity tracking code

We recommend leaving this tab open or copy the code to a safe place. You will need it later in this tutorial.

Adding the Microsoft Clarity Code to Your WordPress Site

Micorosoft Clarity tracking code needs to be present on all pages of your WordPress website. Luckily, there is an easy and safe way to make it happen without editing any WordPress files.

First, you need to install and activate Insert Headers and Footers plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

This plugin lets you add any script in your website’s header or footer right from your WordPress dashboard (no FTP or cPanel needed).

Once the plugin is activated, go to the Settings » Insert Headers and Footers page in your WordPress admin area.

Now, you need to copy and paste the Microsoft Clarity code into the ‘Scripts in Header’ box.

Adding the Clarity tracking code to your website using the Headers and Footers plugin

Don’t forget to click on the Save button at the bottom to save your settings.

The plugin will now automatically add the Microsoft Clarity analytics code to all pages of your WordPress site, so you can track website visitor activity on your website.

Pro Tip: If you’re using a WordPress caching plugin, then you need to clear your WordPress cache. This is important otherwise Microsoft will not be able verify your site for few hours.

Using Microsoft Clarity

Once you have installed the tracking code and cleared your WordPress cache, Microsoft will then start recording visitor session data.

However it will likely take up to 2 hours before you can see any results in your Clarity account.

Simply login to your Clarity account after a few hours, and you should be able to see activity summary in your dashboard.

Viewing the Microsoft Clarity analytics dashboard

Similar to Google analytics, Microsoft makes it easy to see which pages on your site are the most popular.

You can also see other useful insights like the percentage of sessions that have ‘dead clicks’. These are clicks that don’t go anywhere. For instance, users might be clicking on an image thinking that it’s a button or a link.

The dashboard also shows you the number of ‘quick backs’, which occur when a user moves off a page then very quickly comes back to it.

It also tracks excessive scrolling, when users scroll through a page more than expected.

Another useful statistic is rage clicks, when users rapidly click or tap in the same area. Paying close attention to these metrics can help you make your site more user-friendly.

The Recordings tab shows you recordings of different user sessions. You get the details of the user’s device, operating system, and country.

Clarity also tells you the number of pages they visited, the duration and time of their session, and the number of clicks they made.

Clarity showing the recordings of user sessions

The recordings let you see where people are clicking on your site. In this example, the user has clicked multiple times on an image, perhaps expecting it to link to a page.

The recorded session shows where clicks were taking place on the website

The Heatmaps tab shows you the heatmap of your website. These help you see which sections are popular on your site based on number of people clicking. For instance, in this heatmap on our demo site, we can see that people have tried to click on the email address on the contact page.

In the future, Microsoft Clarity also plans to show scrolling on the heatmaps.

Final Thoughts on Microsoft Clarity Analytics Tool

Microsoft Clarity is a new analytics tool with some neat features. While it’s no alternative to the powerful Google Analytics platform, it definitely offers some interesting features like free heatmap and session recording.

Often new website owners want to see heatmaps and session recording, but they don’t have the budget to purchase premium solutions like HotJar or CrazyEgg. Well, now you can use Microsoft Clarity.

Using the heatmaps and session recording, you should be able optimize your website or online store experience to improve user experience and boost sales.

What is Positive Self-Talk? logo
Positive self-talk

It’s not uncommon for most of us to keep a running dialogue inside our heads.

This dialogue can range from giving ourselves instructions while we carry out a task, random observations about our environment or a situation, or it could be what is often referred to as self-talk.

Self-talk is the internal narrative you hold about yourself. It’s your inner voice and you may or may not have spent much time thinking about it or giving it any attention. The truth is, our self-talk can actually have a much bigger influence on the way we see ourselves, and the world around us than we realize.

A Look at the Psychology

Self-talk is generally thought to be a mix of conscious and unconscious beliefs and biases that we hold about ourselves and the world generally. It was Sigmund Freud who first created the idea that we have both conscious and unconscious levels of thought, with unconscious cognitive processes influencing our behavior in ways we don’t realize (Cherry, 2019).

Self-talk can be positive or negative – and paying attention to which you most often sway towards, can help you start making proactive changes about how you take on life’s challenges.

Negative Self-Talk

Our patterns of self-talk are all too often negative – we focus on preconceived ideas that we’re ‘not good enough’ or ‘always a failure’ or ‘can’t do anything right’. Our brains are hardwired to remember negative experiences over positive ones, so we recall the times we didn’t quite get it right more than the times we do. We then replay these messages in our minds, fuelling negative feelings (Jantz, 2016).

Positive Self-Talk

Positive self-talk, as you may have guessed, is the flip of negative self-talk. It’s not about narcissism, or deceiving ourselves into thinking things that are inaccurate. It’s more about showing yourself some self-compassion and understanding for who you are and what you’ve been through (Jantz, 2019).

Positive self-talk sees our internal narrative switching to ideas like ‘I can do better next time’ or ‘I choose to learn from my mistakes, not be held back by them’.
