  • 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.
