WHAT BUSINESS OWNERS LEARN FROM RAND:
What Google wants from you as a website owner in 2016, why Old School SEO no longer works and why it’s radically different marketing your website today as to what is was even a year or two ago.
Business Owners found out what is happening to their website if they failed to adopt the Mobile Revolution – and the urgent changes they needed to make if their website is still not Mobile friendly. They also found out about big changes Google wants website business owners to make to their domain and what this means for them.
Why are you being asked to switch from being http://www.yourdomain.co.uk to https://www.yourdomain.com?
Rand Fishkin uses the ludicrous title, Wizard of Moz. He’s founder and former CEO of Moz, board member at presentation software startup Haiku Deck, co-author of a pair of books on SEO, and co-founder of Inbound.org. Rand’s an unsaveable addict of all things content, search, & social on the web, from his multiple blogs to Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, and a shared Instagram account. In his miniscule spare time, he likes to galavant around the world with Geraldine and then read about it on her superbly enjoyable travel blog.
WHAT BUSINESS OWNERS LEARNED FROM MATT:
3 Google Analytics Reports that You Can’t Live Without
To most business owners, Google Analytics is a black box of mystery; countless charts, graphs, lists and seemingly unrelated bits of information are supposed to tell you where you are having success, what to improve, and how it all works together. But there’s one problem – no one tells you how to do it. You’re on your own, there are no instructions, and where is the big red arrow to show you the problems with your website?
In his sessions, Matt uncovered some of the mysteries of Google Analytics with his 3C’s of Analysis: Context, Contrast & Comparison, and then applies those principles to 3 Google Analytics Reports that You Can’t Live Without.
If small medium business owners ever wanted to find out how Google Analytics works, and how it can show them where to improve or where to find opportunity, then this was the session that gave them tons of answers and things to do! Lots of questions answered, businesses got informed, and learned how to utilize this powerful tool to improve their business immediately!
