Advanced Segments ‘Can Be Created Quickly With Google Analytics’

26th Aug 2010 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

AnalyticsGoogle Analytics’ Intelligence Tool can be utilised so online companies can create advanced segments from automatic alerts in a quick and easy way.

Alden DeSoto, a member of the Google Analytics Team, advised users of professional SEO services who employ the tool that they just need to click on the Create Segment link when they receive an alert.

“You can compare this traffic side by side with overall site traffic or with traffic from other segments,” the official explained.

Links are located on the far right hand side of alerts.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Google Analytics is introducing a ‘weighted sort’ algorithm.

The aim of the tool is to allow users to choose more easily which sets of data they want to analyse first, with metrics covered by the algorithm including number of visits, goal conversion rates and the percentage of new visitors making their way to a site.

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.
