Google Analytics is awesome

Using this amazing keyword data I am able to customize my site based on traffic trends

Dont even get me started. I fucking fucking hate that shit.

Literally 97% of my keyword say that because I target a tech crowd who is always logged into Google.

Worthless.

This whole "privacy" thing is bullshit. How would they be releasing private data if the data is anonymous? SHOW ME THE GOD DAMN SEARCH TERMS.

I still get my keyword data, using other analytic software though. So nice to be able to see exactly what phrase they searched from, etc. But man that’s kind of shady on G’s part.

Wait serious?? How do you do that? What tracking software?

In for this.

Don’t hold your breath.

If you were holding your breath you should be happy to know…

$10/month. PM me for $5/month coupon discount. Plus includes Heatmaps, etc. Literally everything you could want in an amazing design too. MediaTemple used to own this, then it got bought out. Can see keywords, searches, etc sort by volume, bounce rate, etc. Pretty much everything. All while I keep my own data private.

Oh did I mention it’s real time too. , and I can see what pages people are on instantly. Oh and I can nametag people too, so I can track who’s on my my site, etc.

What about that huge chunk of the pie chart that says "Other"? I assume thats the Google hidden keywords?

Considering google doesn’t pass that data…how are they getting it?

They pass the keyword only on non-https requests, and in the case of someone clicking an adwords ad. (So if you’re paying for traffic for those keywords that’s why you’re see it)

Nope, nothing is hidden. Those are ones that only got 1 hit each. So it complies them all into other. Can see the full list of everything..

ie.

Coming to my site. I’m assuming the software extracts it.

/#hl=en&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=next+luxury&oq=next+luxury&gs_l=hp.3..bunchofnumbers..

So it can see what refer is sending traffic my way, records links, etc.

I don’t question it because it works,

No idea how it works but if I get 100 visits, I can every single 100 keyword/search phrase used (assuming it’s 100% search traffic). Mad accurate too, reverse search for those keywords lets me know where they are coming from or what image, etc.

I’ve been thinking about using Piwik () for a while (open source) but it looks a bit of a pain to setup.

Going to have to get some stat software soon, not using google analytics, don’t trust them. That one komplex posted looks pretty nicer though, real time stats an all.

Setup on reinvigorate is a breeze, paste it in with clear and easy to understand instructions. They also have a wordpress plug-in too (I use that). And like 2 other ways to do it.

Love that site!

Did you do some design work lately? Looks just awesome. Seriously professional grade! In my bookmarks toolbar now.

Yep designed and coded whole thing from scratch. Thanks, that makes my day!

The last thing i designed lately i suppose would be spotify.io ….. but dont share that until i finish, dont want to blow my load until its complete. I designed and coded in about 4 days, and the backend is like 60% done.

its responsive too

Leaving the keywords aside, analytics + webmaster together is pretty boss, especially considering they are both free.

Sometimes I feel guilty using all these resources from Google for free, so what I do is click on ads as a way of paying them back. If I search for a kw and get both organic and adwords, I’ll always click on the ad.
