    What should we do? (Ideas)
    Should we do something? (Others doing it?)
    How do we do something? (Planning, research)
    Is it working? (ROI, funding, etc…)
    Why Are Analytics Important?

    Add them to site
    Watch what happens
    “Tweak” as needed
    Rinse and repeat
    How does it work?

    Free
    Highly customizable
    Integrates with Google tools (webmaster tools, search, feed burner, etc)

    How to Get Google Analytics
  • 11. Bounce Rate
    Image via manufacturer.com
  • 12. What is it?
    The percentage of single-page visits (i.e. visits in which the person left your site from the entrance page).
    Bounce Rate
  • 13. Contact page – No
    Blog post - No
    Squeeze page - Yes
    Ecommerce product page - Yes
    Is it Bad to Have a High Bounce Rate?
  • 14. Referring sites
    What site did it come from?
    Is it a good source of traffic? How many links?
    What anchor text do they use?
    What do they have that could help you?
    Do you share the same niche with that site?
    How long do they spend on your page?
    Guest posting opportunities?
    Bounce Rate
  • 15. Homepage – Bad – Page elements, bad copy?
    Squeeze page – Bad – CTA, design, readability?
    Blog post – Depends – Related links, CTA?
    Bounce Rate
  • 16. New vs. Returning Visitors
    Which is higher?
    How much time do they spend on page before bouncing?
    What is different for each group? Copy, CTA, topic, page type?
    Which dives deeper into site before bouncing?
    New vs. old copy – opportunities for rewrite?
    Bounce Rate
  • 17. Go beyond basics
    Invest some time into Google Analytics
    Dedicate some time each week to analytics
    Remember bounce rate isn’t always bad
    Look outside your site for ideas
    Analytics isn’t just for geeks!!
