This week we talked a lot about google analytics and where you blog is at. I sincerely wish that I had been using this tool throughout my last few years of blogging because it is seriously amazing. I’m still tinkering away on it but i’m finding a lot of trends that I wouldn’t have expected and a lot of spam that i’m not liking that much. However, having this tool is a really interesting way of knowing what to post, where people are coming to my blog from and how they are finding me, and how much cross posting to other social media accounts really does make a huge difference.
As Alexis Madrigal puts it in “Dark Social“, web analytics information is limited. What I like is learning how each social media site has it’s own version of analytics that I can use and delve into in order to gain more information. I’m hoping to keep using it to my advantage and weasel my way into everyone’s life on the internet
