Web Analytics Strategy

November 1st, 2010 No comments

I was doing a talk in Swinburne University a few days ago where I discussed the best strategy for Web Analytics. Now there are multiple ways around this but the best results that we see are when we follow this pattern

Define your target online segment

You don’t want to track everyone who lands on your website. Define that online segment who have the highest chance of conversion.

For us, Melbourne and Sydney visitors are our target market.

Define your conversion and goals metrics

What is conversion for you, be clear with that. Then build some goals around the conversions. It might be selling a product, subscribing to a newsletter, downloading a whitepaper. Then build some goals around your conversion metrics.

  • For whitepaper downloads it might be number of pages viewed per visit
  • for Newsletter subscriptions it might be number of information pages viewed per visit
  • For Product sales it might be how many product pages viewed per session

Define your conversion steps

Build all of your conversion pages following best practices and define the steps clearly. Such as for an online store
Categories/Search Page > Product Page > Cart/Checkout Page > Payment Page > Confirmation Page

Put Call to Action buttons/ links

Put call to action buttons/links on all the pages. Make sure that every customer knows how to buy a product from you, or to subscribe to your newsletter or to download that whitepaper whatever conversion is for you.

Create Conversion Funnels in Google Analytics

Build Conversion funnels in Google Analytics based on your conversion and track them periodically

Create Goals in Google Analytics

Create Segmented Report in Google Analytics

Make changes based on analytics Data

Review the site monthly and make changes on

In-Page Analytics: Visualising web analytics

October 19th, 2010 No comments

In-Page analytics in Google Analytics

Google Analytics have just released the beta version of In-Page analytics. This tool helps your visualise user engagement on your website visually. This report is similar to the overlay report but adds multiple layers of depth and customisation to your reports.

The report shows the percentage of clicks against any link and when you hover on top of it, it will show the clicks, goal value and a breakdown of all of your goals.

In-Page analytics supports image maps, advanced segments, and also outgoing links.

Figure below shows In-Page analytics in one of our partner sites www.fbfolio.com

Accessing In-page analytics from Google Analytics

 

To access In-page analytics from your Google Analytics account, please click on Content > In Page Analytics

Accessing in-page analytics

 

Using In-Page Analytics

 

There are some cool things you can do using In-Page analytics. Here are a few of them

Visitor pathing analytics – Go through the whole website

Click through your whole website while in In-Page analytics mode and try and determine what paths users take.  Pick your front page (or your most popular landing page) and If you look at the top percentages on each page and follow that path, you are following the most popular path that visitors take on your website.

Have a look at how clicks affect on pages depending on where a visitor is.

Advanced Segments Breakdown

Click on the top right and bring down the advanced segments and see how your segments interact with your website. Do new visitors tend to click on about us more than returning visitors for example. You can also view any advanced segments that you have created on your Google Analytics account.

Advanced Segments in In-page analytics

Toggle Full Screen mode

Toggle the full screen mode to view the whole of your website without the sidebar

Use Filters for advanced analysis

You can click on + Add Filter to filter a subset of your visitors for better analysis.

Filters you can use are:

– What type of a visitor it is
– What Geographic location that visitor has come from
– What campaign did that visitor originate from
– What is the source of the visitor

and other filters such as browser, screen resolution, operating system etc

What actionable information does In-Page analytics provide?

In your website, In-Page analytics answers questions such as

  • Are your call to action giving you results
  • Which links are your visitors clicking
  • What path are your visitors taking in the site
  • On any page, are your visitors doing what you want them to do

Keyword Conversion Tracking – Analytics

September 18th, 2010 No comments

Keyword Conversion Tracking – What is it?

The most important stat for a website is conversion. A conversion might be a purchase for an online store, a filled enquiry form for a services company, a whitepaper download, etc etc. Keyword Conversion tracking helps you understand the most important thing that contributed to that conversion. The keyword that the visitor put into the Search Engine, landed on your website or microsite and triggered a conversion event. These are the visitors that are doing conversion on your website. Lets look at how you can track this.

Keyword Conversion Funnel – Customer Conversion LifeCycle

Lets have a look at a customer conversion lifecycle. 

What you have at the Traffic stage where most of the data gets analyzed is a lot of noise. At this stage, you have visitors coming from multiple sources, referrals using multiple keywords. When Visitors land on your page, some bounce back. Some move into research stage where they are consuming the information.

Once satisfied, some visitors will move into a consideration stage, and with the right information in front of them eventually move into a conversion stage. This is where you want to track what your users searched for to eventuate the conversion.

Keyword conversion tracking

Using Keyword Conversion Tracking with Web Analytics

You need a fairly robust analytics solution to track Keyword Conversion. You need at least Google Analytics or Piwik Web Analytics at the free end. At the paid end, you get more robustness, flexibility, analysis and offline data analysis through platforms such as Adobe SiteCatalyst powered by Omniture, CoreMetrics or WebTrends.  Please view our post on the list of Web Analytics Platforms for more information on these providers.

Google Analytics Keyword Conversion Tracking

  • Set up Goals in Google Analytics (against your conversions)
  • Click on Traffic Sources > Keywords
  • Click on the Goal Tab that refers to your conversion
  • View the report (Note: click on the heading of your conversion name to sort it)

Piwik Web Analytics Keyword Conversion Tracking

  • Set up Goals in Piwik Web Analytics
  • Click on the Goals Tab and pick your specific Goal
  • Select  a suitable date range
  • Click on keywords > Conversion Rate to see the most popular converting Keywords

Keyword Conversion Tracking Outcomes

So now you have the data! But what do you do with the data?

  • Focus on converting Keywords
  • Focus on optmising our landing pages to those Keywords
  • Review Visitor Traffic Path
  • Optmise Visitor Traffic Path.

Source Conversion Tracking & Referral Conversion Tracking

Similarly, you need to start tracking your source and your Referrals for best way for conversion.

Accessing Google Analytics and Piwik through Adobe Air applications

July 22nd, 2010 No comments

Everything is great about analytics but over time analytics loses its value because of these two problems

  • It is hard to access
  • You do not know what actions to take based on the reports
  •  

    Making Analytics easy to access

    We’ll look at how we can solve the first issue on this post, being hard to access.

    Google Analytics has a great way of setting up alerts and scheduling of sending reports that makes it easy for you to access data. The problem with things being sent to you is that you are not motivated to view them. For me, my analytics reports land on my inbox once every 2 weeks and I barely look at them. What I really do to view what my visitors are doing is use custom applications that read analytics data and I can access information that is important for me through these. Here are a bunch of applications on iphone and Adobe Air that you can use to keep track of your analytics.

    For this post we’ll mainly focus on free applications:

     

    Google Analytics – Adobe Air applications

Are you Tracking Outbound links? Google Analytics link tracking

June 18th, 2010 No comments

Google Analytics Outbound Link tracking

If you are using Google Analytics and not tracking your outbound links, you might be not getting enough intelligence on your website. Here are some of the things that outbound link tracking can tell you

How many times someone has clicked on your email link (in contact us) compared to how many emails you have received.

If you have a high number of clicks, but a low number of enquiries, it might make sense to create a contact us form and use that instead.

How many times are your PDFs getting downloaded

Have you got documents in your website. If any of your PDFs have a very high demand, it might make sense to ask the user for their email address before they can download the PDF. This way you are capturing more data about your visitors

Are you sending a lot of traffic to your affiliates

You can essentially track if you are sending a lot of traffic to your affiliates and if you are, and if they are turning into sales or enquiries, you should charge commission on that traffic.

Outbound links tracking

Even your general outbound links (such as maps, review sites ) etc, you can track them to see if any of your investments are turning into action for you.

One of the things we had to do to get the Qualification was complete Conversion University that takes you through all the ins and outs and setting up of a good Google Analytics system on any site.

The test was fairly hard with 70 questions and 90 minutes of time. We would not recommend doing the test unless you have read through the university slides at least a few times and can remember code snippets as well as set up information.

Google Analytics – Advanced Segments – Returning Visitors from Australia

March 14th, 2010 No comments

google-analytics-logo

Advanced Segments in Google Analytics are very powerful. This allows you to drop your website visitors into separate buckets/segments and view reports around those particular segments.

An Example of Advanced Segments in Google Analytics is

All Australian Users who have been to the site before

For DzineClub, these are high value customers for us. So we analyse this segment to see what they are doing. Some information that we can now find out about them are

– where did they originate (this will help us target more on that source so that we can generate more loyal and local customers)

– Goal Conversions (how is the goal conversion on our local and loyal visitors)

– What pages do these segments go to

An interesting fact for us was that our Australian Returning Visitors segments browsers were majority of Firefox and Chrome browsers. So we can assume that they are a bit more tech savvy and we can provide content which could be a bit technical.
