    • Did you know that Women talk 15% more than MEN do?
    • 8% of the Men in the room didn’t clean your teeth this morning!
    • Welcome to the world of statistics
    • Half a brain is a “no brainer”
      Web Analytics
      SEO/Link Dev/Social Media
    • Specifics Areas I will cover
      Google Local Business Listings
      Ecommerce tracking (third party sites)
    • Search Engine Results Page
      PPC
      Local
      Organic
    • Tracking of Google LBL
      4 easy steps for tracking Google Local Business Listings that will allow you to view detailed result in GA all the way down to keyword level.
      Tried and tested (will take you 10 min, took us weeks..)
      ....and yes it would have been allot easier if Google Analytics just did this automatically!!
    • 1. Create a Vanity URL
      So much for user friendly URLs eh Google?
      http://www.google.com/support/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=55578
    • 2. Create actual URL on site
      This does not need to be a page, literally just a URL as it will redirected. This needs to be the same as the vanity URL!!!
      Example:
      http://www.yourwebsite.com/?utm_source=GoogleLocal&utm_medium=LocalBusinessListings&utm_campaign=YourServiceLocation
    • 3. Insert Vanity URL in LBL
    • 4. Redirect Vanity URL
      Use a 301 redirect (not a 302) to redirect the vanity URL to the appropriate URL
    • Result – LBL tracking
      Also breaks down into keywords and ecommerce
    • E-Commerce Tracking
      You CAN track revenue even if it’s on a third party site, but it can be quite tricky
      The Google Analytics ecommerce code:
      That’s 13 separate pieces of information that it CAN pass on, doesn’t
      mean you SHOULD use them all!
    • The “addTrans” Method
      Two required variables; order id & total. All other variables are optional
      If your shopping cart doesn’t have a order id use a time stamp
    • Optional “addTrans” fields
      The affiliate field is not required and doesn’t show in GA reports but can be used for custom reports and filtering
      Tax & Shipping appears in transaction report if you have access to these variables
      City, State & Country field is currently not being used by Google Analytics but is still collected
    • The “addItem” Method
      Three required variables;
      • order-id (same as addTrans)
      • Price (any currency converting has to be handled by ecommerce software)
      • Quantity
    • Optional “addItem” fields
      SKU Number (stock keeping unit number/number of items left in stock)
      Product Name
      Category
    • Add – Track Trans
      Finally you need to add the “_trackTrans()” demand to send both the transaction and item data to the Google Analytics Server
      This should be called at the end of the ecommerce code
    • Look something like this
    • Tracking Across domains
      Specific instructions for implementing extra
      tracking code for across domains:
