Presentation Focus is 3 practical things you can do to get more from GA. > Now used by around 300k accounts W`wide/ Recent Major update / Extendable Tracking code for custom variables/ >Now a `data framework` ie in addition to the regular interface it now has an easy to use API./ > Google looking to extend it beyond existing web site data eg adding Social Tracking, etc > Now a group of 3rd party suppliers of plug-ins.
Advanced Segments. BEWARE Site Wide Averages. >The purpose of GA data is to help people make better decisions re audiences, content. > To do this site wide averages are useless actually worse as they are misleading ( see Blog Post) > Advanced Segments are a great way to find actionable data ( Profiles less important these days) > Default and Custom segments. So: By region/city/New/ Returning/by `engagement`/SOURCE: ads/banners/SMedia/etc CONTENT: Lovely features such as Preview Segment and Test Segment GA was designed to show how the effect of AdWords/Marketing.
Default Segments Custom Segments can be easily created and tested.
Goals/Multichannel Funnels For an ecommerce site it will be about leads/sales, etc. But for a `content site` eg BBC, Newspaper Sites. > NB: Maximum 30 Goals per Profile. Goals can be: URL reached/ Time on Site/ Pages Viewed/ or Events: eg form completed/downloads/Video viewed, etc Eg Number of visitors that you send to a `partner` site.
>MultiChannel Funnels: Assisted Conversions. What channel contributed to Goals ? Not just `last click attribution`
Can be any of 3 kinds; 1. Events such as: download/ link to another site/ Sign-up / 2. Engagement: ie Time on Site/ Pages Viewed/ 3. URL destination: 4: Not easy to copy Goals from PROFILE to Profile.
