    Not sure if you are aware of this but I figured I would post it just in case.

    I noticed when I load up my pages a reference popup in the status bar that the system was waiting to connect to b.scorecardresearch.com and would hang for a few seconds if not longer (upwards of 20sec). In researching this the b.scorecardresearch.com is considered mail-ware. More research I found disabling SEO Ultimate stopped it from happening and re-enabling it was back again.

    I did some googling and found it is related to the ShareIt feature in the SEO Plugin. Looks like ShareIt uses this site for data analytics.

    I disabled the ShareIt feature and it stopped happening. Too bad as I liked that feature.

    Thanks for the heads up on this one. We created this module years ago and do enjoy the functionality of integrating all of the social media sources in one aggregated place (which you can enable with one click for the module).

    I will research this further and determine if there are any other sources for this type of social aggregation. Fortunately as you stated above, you can merely disable the module and its functionality is removed from your site.

    Good catch! Will keep you posted.
