Course content

  • The course will start with walk through the interface, this includes showing you how you can remove your own traffic from your Google Analytics reports before an overview of the account metrics - so right from the start you’ll know your bounce rate from your conversion rate.
  • Before going into individual reports we’ll concentrate on the one factor that is commonly cited as the reason why most companies fail at web analytics: goal setting.
  • This course will walk you through step-by-step how to identify, set-up and manage website goals in your Google Analytics account so each participant walks away with goals injected into their account and ready to use.

What does this mean?

It will help you identify the good quality traffic from the poor quality traffic so you can use the reports to get more quality traffic back to your website.

After goal setting we will look at all the different way’s to view your customers and you’ll be given a deep-dive into the main Google Analytics reports and learn how to look for and use actionable insights over vanity metrics.
