Are you Heatmap Tracking your Website Visitors?

This is an overview of how the heatmap tracking works with Crazyegg.com. In this video I use a local Tourism agencies website to show the traffic data onto the website. We monitored and found that by moving a button higher on the page it increased the website traffic to that page by 18%.

Getting to know your Google Analytics

Today was a very digitally productive day here at the office. I was scanning through the monthly Google Analytic reports that I send out to my clients and I realized that I still didn’t have a solid video that explains the Google Analytic reports. I’ve created numerous blog posts about this but most people tend to click on the link and then immediately get turned off by the fact that they need to read the explanations. So, I decided it was time to create a breakdown video of the typical Google Analytic Report.

Google has recently released their new and improved analytic interface which I’ll create a video on later in the month. For now, enjoy the video and happy Googling.

Make sure to open this video in full screen or else you’ll never be able to see the text on the report. Click the enlarge button in the bottom right of the player window.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

Google Analytics gets a Facelift

Google Analytics gets a Facelift

We’re excited to share that the new version of Google Analytics will soon be active on all Big Boom Design accounts. In addition to a redesigned interface that makes it even easier to explore your data, you’ll also notice some significant new features. Here are a few of our favorites.

Google Analytics Real-Time

Real-Time reporting shows you what’s happening on your site – right now! The reports are updated continuously and each pageview is reported seconds after it occurs on your site. You’ll find Real-Time reports in the ‘Home’ tab.

Google Analytics

Multi-Channel Funnels

See which channels your customers interacted with during the 30 days prior to converting or purchasing. Conversion path data includes interactions with many media channels, including clicks from paid and organic searches, affiliates, social networks, and display ads.

Mobile Reporting

More and more, visitors are using mobile devices to browse the web. Mobile reports in the new version of Google Analytics help you understand how mobile visitors are interacting with your site. You can even see which mobile devices your visitors use and optimize for those devices.

Flow Visualization

Flow Visualization is a beautifully designed and highly sophisticated tool for graphically showing how visitors navigate through your site. We’ve completely re-imagined and redesigned the navigation tools available in the old version of Google Analytics.

Over the next few weeks as we make Google Analytics v5 the default for all users, we are simultaneously rolling out the report email scheduler and PDF export.

Need to check something in the old version of Google Analytics?

We think you’ll enjoy all the features of the new version but if you need to refer to the old version, there is a safety latch.  Look in the top right corner of Google Analytics and you’ll see a link for Old Version. Switch back and forth as much as you need, but keep in mind, that the old version will only be available until early next year.
