Absolute Beginner's Guide - Google Analytics879

As the title of the thread suggests... from the wizzes at MOZ.

An absolute beginner's guide to Google Analytics.

yes, you need Google analytics.

No analytics is like riding a bicycle without an odometer.

Analytics will help you know what you are doing right and wrong.

Numbers are impartial feedback ... unkind. You just need to know what to look for and how to react.

What I hate about Google Analytics - it that it gets so addictive and I end up not doing real work :-)

Also makes me angry of all the bots crawling with no real visitors but just ending up making the whole report confusing :-(

I am addicted to numbers as well.

there is a WordPress plugin that will filter out some of the spam bots. And the ones that don't get filtered can be thru admin at Google Analytics. It's a hassle but can be done.

My site is not wordpress, but I use the exclude self and sort of started to weed out bots based on some info like device, network . . .

I do plan on wordpress blog, so I will try that too.
