No. So treat each one like a freestanding website, because each is its own digital asset.

  19. Monitor Your Metrics • Do all of your websites have active, current Google Analytics code? • Do you track social media Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)? • Do you conduct monthly, quarterly, and/or yearly reviews of your marketing metrics to adjust expenditures?

Google Analytics Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools Mind Over Metrics = NO, you can’t guess better than the reports will tell you Know the basics so that you can have an intelligent conversation with your vendors: • Bounce Rate - the percentage of visitors who leave your site after only viewing one page • User Behavior - information on the behavior of your visitors while they are on your website • Acquisition – how web searchers come to find your site (AdWords, social media, organic search)
