Google Analytics Master Class on Actionable Insights

Last week, I found out that Google is holding a Google Analytics Master Class on Actionable Insights at the Hilton Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. In plain English, this means that Google is holding a seminar with tips and insights from their speakers on how to better utilise the Google Analytics tool that is provided by Google.

Well, I registered for a RSVP and today, I received this confirmation letter from Google.

    Hi Mohd Elfie Nieshaem Juferi,

    Thank you for your rsvp. This is to confirm your seat at the event.

    If you are bringing a colleague along, please encourage them to register before Thu, 4 March. The more the merrier! Otherwise you may contact us at +603-2283-4288 or +6016- 336-3057.

    Please print this confirmation for registration at the event.

So yes, it looks like I will be going to learn more about Google Analytics. I’ve always wanted to learn how I can effectively utilise it in order to improve my SERPs and traffic to my blog(s). Did you receive a RSVP for the Master Class? Let me know. See you there!

    I want to become an expert at Google Analytics. Are there any great resources online that will help me accomplish this? Also, do I need a Gmail account to access Google Analytics? Can I use another Email account?

    I have a Joomla website and already set up a Google Analytics account, now how do I add the code to my website so that it will keep track of visitors etc to every page? Thanks!

    What is the reason of increasing new visits and decrease in total visits in google analytics?

    I have Google Analytics tracking code on my website. While it is certainly powerful, I don’t see anyway I can use the information on my site. Specifically I want to add some statistics such as pageviews, visitors, most popular pages. Is there a way this can be done without logging into Google Analytics and exporting the reports? This is extremely cumbersome.
    Thanks.

    So I set google analytics up on my etsy shop and I know that you put in a url of your goal, but how do I do this for an Item sold? Because I don’t know the url destination for a sold Item or the ones in between.

    Google analytics by default only gives the domain that linked to your site in its referring sites section. I have heard there’s a way to get it to tell you exactly which specific web-pages link to you but I have been unable to activate this functionality. Any ideas…?

    I’m looking at my company’s google analytics reports and I would like to figure out a way where under “campaigns” I can group our referrals into different groups, like “Partnership Referrals” or “Banner Advertising”, but I can’t seem to figure out how. I’m not sure if it won’t let me do this for campaigns that aren’t Google AdSense campaigns either. If this is the case, are there any other analytics sites that will? Thanks in advance!

    Basically I want for Google Analytics to show me the results of my website, excluding the times that I have looked at the website. I really just want it to start doing this, I really do not care about times in the past. I know I have to set up a filter of some sort, but I have tried that and can’t get it to work. I really just need some super specific and easy to follow steps. Thanks a bunch!

But when it get to the step where i have to create a new google account it keeps saying that they can not connect with Google’s servers because there is a connection problem or its a problem with my SIM card. What do i do now?

    Hi, i’m planning on using an HTC Aria/Wildfire on a plan that includes only 50MB of data a month (3g). All I really use 3g for is Facebook, emails and google maps. Does anyone know if the GPS on google maps will put a spike in my data allowance?

    Thanks.

    Is there a way that I can put different key words for different menus of each page?

    I have a website with many menu bars. Somehow whenever I click different sections, all the same google ads appear. Each menu has a different characters, so I would like to customize ads for each sections. Is this possible to have different google ads for each page? Thanks.

    It never did this before but whe I search images on google it throws all the picture on one page. I’ll scroll down and a little caption will show “page 2” “page 3” etc. What happen to the regular “Next”button? This new feature lags, and the images show up so slow, and scrolling skips pages and it takes ages to find an image.

    I know google has a new feature called instant search – turned it off. Went to picture search settings – no luck.

    How does Google, with it’s innovative culture (personal 20% time) and creative employees, make sure it’s employees remain loyal and do not run off with a great idea and embark on their own entrepreneurial start-up? If an employee has a great proprietary idea, is the idea his or Google’s? I don’t think confidentiality agreements and non-complete contracts are enough to prevent this from happeing. Anyone have an idea?

    I set up a site that has URL tracking on it. I am sending out emails that have URL tracked links. When I look in Google Analytics I see a certain amount of traffic from these links. But I also see a certain amount of traffic that comes from ‘referred’ sites. I am unsure if this is due to my activity or not. Figuring this out will help me determine how successful my marketing efforts actually are.

    I know how to use google for searching any keyword but when we search any keyword, search engines consider so many factors for SERPs such as back links, urls and titles of the pages. But I need to know how to search in google for the web pages which contain a specific phrase in the body of the page and not in the url or title.

    Hi,

    I want to be able to store a Google spreadsheet in a Gmail folder so that it can be accessed and updated from within Gmail- rather than having to come out of Gmail and go into Google docs.

    I’d be grateful for any tips on how to do this.

    Thank you.

    My Google toolbar disappeared and I have to download it evertime I go online. My Yahoo toolbar always opens so I would like to import my bookmarks into Yahoo favorites. I have tried all the tips on the Google help area to make the toolbar reappear and none of them work. I am using Comcast Cable as my internet provider if that makes a difference.

    How does a minor make a Google adsense legally? Does Google adsense take tax out of your check or do they take it out of the payee’s bank account?

    I was just reading on wiki about the hardware infrastructure of google. It sounds ridiculously enormous! So could this be a possible threat? Or is google pretty much indestructible?

    I just got a motorola cliq and have seen articles all over advertising the new update to google maps allowing navigation but when i go to google mobile it says to access the android market through my phone and download the latest google maps but when i do that google maps does not appear in the market. Is this becuase i am not on the Droid or is there some other problem that is not allowing me to find this new update?

    Google Analytics is really confusing me. Does it track all my pages for “page views” or does it only track my homepage? I think I know how to add more pages, but I don’t know if I need to if it’s already tracking them. Some help would be great!

    Google has started displaying a location under the search bar to the left. There’s an option to change the location, or to let Google auto-detect, but I don’t want a location displayed at all. How do I stop Google from showing what it thinks is my location under the search bar on the left?

    Hi,

    I have recently launched a new website. I just want to know how long does it take for Google to recognize backlinks to my site. I am currently generating backlinks by posting on different forums, blog commenting and directory submission. It has been a week now but still there are 0 backlinks to my site according to Google.

    Yahoo is relatively quicker than Google in recognizing backlinks. Does anyone have any idea how long does it take for Google to recognize backlinks to my website?
