    Tracking Social Media in Google Analytics - New and Improved Functionality!

    social interactionsNew functionality in Google Analytics includes the ability to track social interactions on your site and easily see data for this in the Analytics interface.

Secondly, the much vaunted Google +1 looks set to launch in the United States, bringing about, what we can only assume to be a big change to its SERPs and potentially algorithm.

    So what’s the advantage of having a follow button for your website? Well, in the past you could happily point people towards your profile page, where they could make an informed decision on whether to follow you or not. Of course you can still do this, just as you can encourage these visitors to tweet your blog posts or product pages.
