Written by a Google Analytics insider and web metrics expert, Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics is the first book to offer advanced GA tips and techniques while showing readers how to actually implement the web analytics methods and concepts that theoretical books just talk about. What filters keep data clean and accurate? How do I measure Flash usage and track banners? What’s the best way to tag for email marketing campaigns? What visitor segmentation gives you the most useful insights about traffic? How do I use those insights for better conversion rates and an increased bottom line? This book answers all those questions and more.
Advanced Metrics with Google Analytics begins by looking at today’s web analytics principles before providing a detailed best-practices installation guide that covers such advanced topics as how to set it up to track dynamic web pages, banners, outgoing links, and contact forms. The book then explains how to use GA to better understand web sites by exploring such real-world scenarios as optimizing pay-per-click accounts, tracking offline spending, and using ad version testing. Brian then explores advanced setups and hacks for configuring goals, filters, and segmenting visitor types before teaching readers how to identify, extract, and report on the most important aspects of the collected data. A chapter of case studies shows how real companies have used GA to improve their business followed by exercises to help readers put into practice what they’ve just read.
Packed with definitions, tactics, techniques, and workarounds, this book’s best-practices and advanced implementation and usage techniques will empower everyone to use Google Analytics to improve their web site.
