Google,all I want for Christmas is...

Well, I already have my two front teeth, and barring any unforeseen injury I plan on not needing new ones any time soon. I'm also not talking about SSL Search, despite the amount of uproar we've witnessed in the industry as a result.  Sure, it sucks to have the ability to collect information about your natural search keywords impacted when users are logged into their Google account, but it's not the end of the world. Ultimately, I think this argument around SSL Search is miss...

When Bad Data Happens to Good People

One of the most common pain points I see with our clients is that they have bad, incomplete, or otherwise untrustworthy data and despite that, they keep reporting on it anyway.

Series: Help! I am the ONLY Web Analyst in my company| Deciding What to Focus On

In my post on Developing a Plan to Get Everything Done I helped Lone Web Analysts create a list of all the immediate and future tasks they’re expected to accomplish. This list can be very long, so let’s talk about how to prioritize.  With so much to do you’ll have to figure out a way to determine where to focus first and every step along the way. The way to approach this will vary depending on your environment: 1. Management has a somewhat clear vision and set of priorities. This...

You’re Doing it Wrong: Content Marketing Strategy

It is not surprising that more and more companies are increasing their marketing spend on content marketing each year. In fact, marketers, on average, spend over a quarter of their marketing budget on content marketing (B2B Marketing Insider). However, after months of ideation, content design and publication, do we truly know how effective the investment has been? And even more importantly, can we identify which efforts didn’t work? That is exactly the question stakeholders will ask when th...
