Not able to get back into the old version of Google Analytics anymore?
It appears that it depends on your login
(and most likely disables the “Old version – Reporting” after a certain # of logins)
If you use GA alot, then it will eventually time out disabling the old version reporting located on the bottom (which takes you right back to the new version instead)
I discovered this as I tried different logins , some of which disabled the old version “Old version – Reporting” (ones I frequent more) and some which still enabled me to still use the old version of GA. Continue reading Google Analytics: ‘Old Version – Reporting’ Link Isn’t Working?
Where are they?
It appears that you may have to re-adjust a few new changes in Google Analytics. Previously when looking at the “Keywords” it would list a nice overview phrase such as:
“Search sent 134,239 total visits via 53,902 keywords ” Continue reading New Google Analytics – How Many Keywords? – Where is it?
Scrapers are web sites that syndicate your content into their blogs (stealing) and in some cases end up outranking your site in the search engines for articles), it requires a 2 step process. First, who is it? and then 2nd how to block them in the future.
Readers should also know that this is usually done automatically using a plug in or script that “imports” your content into theirs upon postings. Google changes have helped prevent this on some levels but still its a big issue that is not fully combated. If you have a WordPress blog, there are already plugins that will do this function for the offending blog site.
How do I know if I’m being Scraped?
Usually you will discover this when doing searches for your own published articles and seeing them appear elsewhere, with same title, same content and even you same links (that usually link back to your own site as posted). You might even discover this thru Google Analytics. In short, eventually you’ll see “your complete articles” appearing in searches that are not coming from your web site
Why is Scraping an issue?
Offending Sites have been known to outrank the original sites with their own content Continue reading How to Stop Known Scrapers from Accessing your Blog?
Before taking, I knew that there would be a fair amount of studying to do. I am like most Marketers, who maybe have used GA in smaller capabilities over the years. If you are completely new, then you need to spend a few hours “dinking” around in the program, so you are familiar with where things are. Now the difference between those who use it for marketing and those who are “qualified in Google Analytics”, can be a bit of night and day. As most use GA simply as an over complex hit counter of sorts.
Google Analytics can do alot more, and alot more than can get you better and faster answers about your data.
To sum things up better, once you’ve went thru the process of learning, taking the test and being able to proclaim certification….you will have an understanding of – Segments, Event Tracking, Campaigns, Filters, Expressions (to some extent), Regex, Site Search, Goals, Advanced Segments and Cross Domain Tracking to name a few
Most users of GA – Open it up, check the dashboard readings and move on (aka – over complex hit counter of sorts)
All that “stuff” may sound intimidating off the cuff, but trust me…..1 step at a time, go thru the lessons…and read all the links and suggestions. You’ll come out a winner Continue reading Google Analytics Qualification Test – How To Pass Test?
