  • Website Analytics has always been tricky. Sifting through loads of data and making sense out of it is no mean task. This presentation has been created by Vipan Goja & Shashwat Srivastava.

  • Manual Tagging AdWords Tagging: ?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=abc&utm_term={keyword}&origin=sitelink&sitelinkname=xyz Bing Tagging ?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=abc&utm_term={keyword} &origin=sitelink&sitelinkname=xyz Each term in the tag refers to the particular level of data, e.g. source=google gives us the source from where the user came, source=medium gives the medium i.e. CPC and so on

  • Basically, in the absence of a tracking code, setting up goal URLs can help us track the users who have have taken the required action on the website If you are counting time on site as a performance metric, you can create a time based goal and set a minimum time limit to be counted as a conversion. This is especially useful for branding campaigns where there is no direct action required of a user
  • Google Analytics in PPC(Tagging) Types of SEM campaigns and the use of analytics for their optimization Goals Other Reports (Device Targeting, Browsing and OS Report)
  • Google analytics tracks the data about visitors to your web property. Languages and Geographic location, New vs. Returning visitors, the extent to which users interact with your site and the mediums and technology they do so with. With this information in your arsenal, you can develop a coherence between your site, traffic and your SEM efforts which can go a long way in optimizing your campaign
  • The demographic report consists of two primary targeting reports, namely the geographic and languages report.
  • The geographic report gives a drilled down analysis of the traffic in a geography to a city level data. As opposed to adwords where only the city level data for certain countries like USA can be seen. Suddath, which provides services related moving and relocation is targeting different locations in US under different accounts. Initially when we had targeted a radius for our campaigns, we noticed that some of the traffic which was recorded came from locations outside our targeted area. To avoid traffic coming from these areas and to better control the budgets allocated we analyzed the geographic reports and excluded these locations.
  • Another advantage that GA geographic report has over adwords is the visual representation of the traffic at a geographic level. You can see that it give a drilled down visualization at all the geographic levels. Another example where a geographic report can help us optimize a sem campaign is the case where one is the case of a online startup business which is not very sure of its primary market areas and is targeting across the country. When sufficient data is gathered in such a case one can actually see from the state level to the city level, which areas have given quality traffic. Not only can we then prioritize the budgets of our campaigns but also create campaigns with ads and keywords which cater to the particular geography. For eg. The city of atlanta in my target state Georgia receives high quality traffic as opposed to the other cities. We can then go ahead and incorporate specific keywords like ‘moving in atlanta’ to get more targeted traffic.
  • While adwords gives you the option of selecting the language your audience’s system is set to as a targeting option, it does not give us a report to gauge the performance for the same. GA once again gives us the luxury to view such a report. Lets take a example, where a campaign in the PPC account is targeting a multi-lingual location with english as the main language and you find that the good portion of your visitors are speak Spanish, you might want to create ads in spanish to boost the quality of the traffic and maybe even create a separate Spanish-language version of your site and focus more of your ad spending in Spanish markets to get the highest roi
  • The behavior report lets you gauge the user engagement and the nature of that engagement with your site marketing campaign which can be seen through the New vs. Returning reports.
  • The new vs returning report can give us an insight into the quantity and quality of traffic we receive interms of new and returning visitors depending on the business model. A branding campaign will be more interested in having new visitors as opposed to returning and can utilize the data from this report to verify the same. If this is not the case one can look to optimize his/her campaigns by using a cta to entice new users. We can also use advanced segments for new and returning visitors to compare those numbers side by side for each location, and see where the most new visitors come from and which areas produce the most return visitors. Another case where this report will be of great use is a business which is looking to build a loyal customer base through sem but finds that the number of returning visitors is below his/her benchmark. One can then think about implementing a remarketing campaign with the apt offers and discounts to especially in the case of an ecommerce to attract old users and build a strong customer base
  • Depending on the nature of your site, your target duration for a visit will vary. In the case of Reliance Autozone which was purely a catalogue site with mostly images and very little text content, user engagement was measured in the number of pageviews and the average duration of time spent on the site by a visitor. On the other hand if the purpose of your site is to let people purchase the items in their shopping baskets or simply sign up or submit a form fill and they're spending a lot of time there you might conclude that your check-out process is unnecessarily complicated or your formfill page is too detailed.
  • Just like when you are targeting the search or search partners for your search campaigns in adwords depending on you KPI for a computer website, it is very important to know in the case of mobile campaigns, which carrier or service provider gets your ppc campaign the best results. Adwords now gives us the luxury of selecting the carrier profile while setting up a mobile based campaign, however there is no form of reporting for this in adwords. GA once again comes to the rescue and gives us a detailed analysis of the carriers which have given us the best results and the carriers which have performed poorly. We can according exclude or create campaigns with separate budgets to get the best results from the mobile based ppc campaigns.
  • While optimizing the landing pages for the ppc campaigns with the help of Google Analytics reports, sometimes it’s difficult to visualize how visitors navigate on a given website page. Landing page reports, visitor reports can be helpful to isolate a problems with landing pages but for us to really dig deep into a website page and optimize the design elements for the same, in-pages analytics is the best tool which gives us the data available through other reports in GA, superimposed on the website as you browse. Apart from clicks other KPI such as revenue, conversions can also be associated with the elements on the website which can help us further asess the true effectiveness of a design element on our website.
