For me personally – 3 Deep means “dashboards & deep dives”
So we’re going to start with something fairly basic – but the new interface for GA helps make better sense of the account – especially when conversing with those in your organization not in GA regularly
The old method basically had your account – and then profiles. Where a profile could be a completely separate entity (it’s own UA#) or it could be a copy of a profile with a different set of filters or goals. (It was common to create copy profiles to get all goals captured before more goals were added).
It’s an extra step but it allows for more control and clearer communication when setting up a new site
Personally – I don’t need a lot of real time metrics but there are certainly cases for it. And if you needed to react to something you can now look at activity and see what’s happening.(Bring up live sample)

In this case I’m filter to pages that start with either “preg” or “birth” as I want to know how that section of the site is performing – eliminating all the index and home pages, as well as article pages that contain those terms.Then I want to dig deeper and see what’s driving these pageviews so I select Pivot
And choose to pivot the pages by Medium.Seeing that for my top page – most views are actually from direct traffic – which I find interesting and likely tied to a URL advertised in offline media
By show of hands how many have heard of XXXX?Now how many are using XXX?
As great as Google Analytics is, it has it’s limitations – especially when it comes to building out custom reports for clients. as most analysts know – control over data is important.These aren’t all the features of NextAnalytics but it’s some of the primary reasons we use it(live demo)
