Find Out if Your Online Marketing Efforts are Getting Results with Google Analytics URL Destination Goals
OK, so here’s the how to setup Google Analytics URL Destination Goals, do you know your website’s desitination URL’s? Where are you trying to get things to ‘happen’? Oh, you don’t well ask the marketing team they know.
Just review the plan you have for the website, and that will show you the desination URL’s that you intend for people to visit. The About Us page for instance and so on, make that list and then using this good information you can setup 20 different goals.
And yes, we talk about goals for websites with users on a nearly regular basis, to answer the ‘why’ questions that come about.
Sometimes in ‘surfing’ you find a page with an issue of some kind or another, and the question I have is did you tell the site owner about it? Send an email to them via their contact page (unless of course that’s the issue) or even better call them on the phone? If the ‘what goes around, comes around’ is true, then each time you help out another webmaster’s project they also can be charged with paying their dues and corrections can be a part of what they do.
I was just on the phone pointing out an error in anchor text to a customer, they thanked me, and for the days that we don’t make lots of money, thank you’s will have to do.
In the coming month’s class I’m preparing called “Help your Website Everyday – Have A Right Start” part of that was presenting best practices for usability, and that research led me to this presentation, a book that to this day I refer people to so that they too won’t make me think. Here you go, look and then decide if you agree that this is indeed timeless information from Mr. Krug.
http://developer.wordpress.org/ Mullenweg announced the creation of a developer resource website. It’s not quite ready yet so if you go to the URL, it will redirect to the WordPress.org site.
Magazine Basic was a first free theme for WordPress. To date, over 430,000 people have downloaded it from WordPress.org
and the response has been unbelievable. Finishing touches on version 3.0.2 were applied by the creator to take advantage of all the amazing new features in WordPress and to now make Magazine Basic fully responsive for all devices. The theme was rebuilt from the ground up using HTML5 and the Gridiculous responsive boilerplate.
