This weekend Think Visibility celebrated its fifth year and 9th conference. It was a birthday party, a Christmas party and of course had great sessions about SEO, business, analytics and more! I had a fantastic time meeting new people, catching up with those I’d met before and learning new things.
On February 16th 2013 I had the pleasure of attending the MeasureCamp London ’unconference’ (where the agenda is made up on the day) along with over 100 other web analytics enthusiasts. In this post, I’m going to share my experiences and cover some of the tips discussed on the day, with extra tips and advice added here and there.
Over my time working with Google Analytics accounts I have come across many reasons to use Event Tracking, so much so that I now wonder why there are still websites out there that do not utilise this fantastic resource. Here, I’m going to explain what it is, the benefits, the code and examples, covering my favourite things to use Event Tracking for.

There is so much data available that you can sometimes get a little lost and not know what you should be focusing on; so this blog post is here to help you know the main areas to look at for the valuable information. This is particularly important now that some SEO tool companies are removing their rank tracking services – this post will help you identify data that is more valuable than rank reports!
I’m sure everyone has their favourite resources for the areas they work in, but sometimes it’s hard to find new ones that you know you can trust. The lists below are the websites or people I read and use most often. I’ve also included a link to a post on each site so that you can quickly see what they are like and decide whether to bookmark them straight away. Read More
Hello, my name is Anna Lewis, and this video is going to take you through how to set up advanced segments in Google Analytics. Advanced segments are a really useful piece of functionality. I’ve written a couple of blog posts and done a video on this in the past to explain how you can use them, how beneficial they are, and what you can do with them. So this video is just to go over exactly how to set them up.
As this post goes live, I am talking at BrightonSEO. It’s the end of the day, there have been many fantastic talks so far, the sun is setting over a beautiful horizon, the people of Brighton are moving from work to bar… I’m getting off topic!
This post covers everything I talked about and probably has more detail than the talk itself. I’ve even included links to 11 custom reports or dashboards that you can use yourself. Yes, I really am that kind (sometimes)!
Something I’ve only come across recently (laugh now if you’ve been using it for a while!) is the ability to have multiple Chrome or Firefox user accounts on one computer. Sounds simple, but it turns out there a lot of advantages to using this when you manage multiple SEO clients, or multiple accounts of any online variety, or even just multiple email accounts. I’m going to go over those benefits in this post and also explain how to set everything up yourself.
