  • 4. Dumb Executives & Missed Opportunities
    Web Analytics reminds me of a typewriter.
    Long ago execs said they did need to type. 
    Now it’s part of the job, 24 by 7.
    Lots of Execs I’ve met don’t care about data…
    They do this at their own peril.
    My estimate of web analytics used: 95% installed.
    I would say 3% use web analytics, at least effectively.

    Data Is Everything!
  • 5. Web Analytics 101
    What Are Web Analytics?
    Data: Visitors, Pages, Conversions, Funnels, Goals, etc…
    Where users go and what they do on a website.

  • 4 Conversion Funnel Glasses
    Margarita Glass
    Martini Glass
    Visitors Are Going Past The Home Page But Not Putting Stuff In Their Shopping Cart! Review Products Pages
    People Are Visiting The Web Site, But Only The Home Page.Review Home Page Content
    Beer Glass/High Top
    Wine Glass
    Visitors Are Shopping & Converting WellYou Are Using Web Analytics Wisely
    Website Visitors Put Stuff In Shopping Cart, But Not Converting!Review Checkout Process

  • 11. Accuracy
    These Are The Issues
    People Turn Cookies Off
    Third Party/First Party Cookie Issues
    People Turn Javascript Off
    Broken Javascript
    Some Mobile Phones Not Supporting Javascript
    Anonymous Surfing (The Big One!)
    Data Is Not What They Used To Be
    Cellphones And Ipads
    Allowing Too Many Includes .
    So a 10% Error Rate Is Excellent.
    But Is Accuracy beyond that Important…
    For Most of Us No, it really is not import.
    Web analytics is about trends not anal retentivity.
    Don’t Seat the small stuff, Really!

    I Always Speculate…
    Things I Think Will Be Offered In Future

    I can see better, interactive graphics.
    Overall I think Google has hit 90% of what is needed and probably will not increase features too much…
