  • Google Analytics Tracking Code (GATC)
  • Web Analytics Gibberish
  • Visitor (or Absolute Unique Visitor)
    • A visitor is uniquely identified by a Google Analytics visitor cookie
  • Visit
    • A visit (or session ) is a period of interaction between a browser and website.
    • Closing the browser or staying inactive for 30 minutes ends the session.
  • Pageview
    • A pageview is counted every time a page on your website loads
  • Pageviews, Visits & Visitors
  • New vs Returning
    • New Visitors have visited for the first time
    • Repeat Visitors have previously visited the site
  • Bounce Rate
    • A bounce occurs when a visitor only views one page
    • The bounce rate is the percentage of visitors who left after viewing just one page.
  • Time on Site
  • Campaign Tagging
  • How can I make my marketing campaigns more effective & accountable? How can I compare my various online marketing efforts against common metrics? How can I see how ad content influences visit quality?
  • Benefits of Campaign Tagging
      • Make advertising accountable
        • Measure the effectiveness of your advertising efforts
        • Export and map to ad cost data for “Return on Ad Spend”
      • See all “post-click” performance in one place
        • Common metrics allow for an “apples to apples” comparison
        • Integrated reporting means campaign data is available in all GA reports
      • 3. Increase AdWords accountability*
        • Tight integration with AdWords reveals more data than any other tool
        • Dedicated AdWords reports in Google Analytics can aid optimization
  • How do I tag a Destination URL?
    • A “Destination URL” is where your visitor will land after clicking an ad or link
      • example: www.mysite.com/specificlandingpage.html
    • Tags are added after the URL, and must be separated by a ? or a #
      • You may need to test both options to find the solution that works for your site
      • Do not add a second ? or a # if you already have one of them in your URL
      • example: www.mysite.com/specificlandingpage.html#
    • You must use tags that GA can recognize
      • The standard tags are utm_source, utm_medium, utm_campaign, utm_term, and utm_content.
