Google Performance Summit 2016: The Continued Strength and Vision of the Google Platform

In the multi-channel analytics industry, it’s funny how quickly perspectives and the concept of “incumbents” change. In 2009 clients and investors asked whether Google would take analytics seriously.

Google Analytics Advanced Segments – Tips for Success

I’ve been doing quite a bit of training in Google Analytics lately.

Though I will note, a client recently suggested that there should be a drinking game for real-time reports, which I say, why not? However let’s not digress, drinking games with analytics tools can be fun, but we’ve got a job to do! One thing I’v...
