- How to use segmentation to refine the view of your data. You can create your own data segments and then compare data, for example by device (desktop, mobile, and tablets), location (US, Canada, Australia), and so on. You can also compare traffic sources such as direct, organic, search, paid, and referral. Your presentations will be better.
- We look at real-time reports and how to understand the data.
- We then look at the Audience Report. Who is visiting your website? We can see their age, gender, and the language and device they use.
- We can also see the topics they’re interested in and what they are buying on the web.
- You can also see their location by continent, country, state, or city. This lets you decide where to show your ads (or turn them off).
- Knowing your audience allows you to design articles and images that appeal to them. You can also make decisions about pages, translations, markets, and so on. You can use this to choose better ads, content, and images for your digital marketing.
- A powerful feature is benchmarking, which shows how your digital marketing compares against your competitors. You can see if you should increase efforts in a channel.
- We look at the Acquisition Report in the second half of this workshop. This shows you how you acquired your visitors. For example, did they come via search engines, paid search, email, or social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and 62 additional social media sites)? By knowing this, you can focus on what works and shut down what doesn’t work.
- The Acquisitions Report also shows you the keywords that triggered your ads, the keywords that triggered your pages in search results, and how your pages rank in Google.
- You’ll also see how to use UTM tags to mark your social posts and ads to get reliable data.
- We close this session with slides about the difference between free and paid versions of Google Analytics, including how to know if you’re close to the limit for a free account.
