Rapid Fire Web Analytics Q and A with Avinash and Nick

Thursday, October 15, 2009 | 1:40 PM


Recently we started an initiative to ask you to share your most burning questions via Google Moderator (link: Google Analytics Google Moderator site).

This week, Avinash and I sat down to do a rapid fire Q&A to answer your questions. Rather than do a dry text Q&A version, we chose to do a video, and we think you'll find it educational and entertaining.

In this episode we discuss:
  • How is bounce rate calculated
  • Effect of search bots on data collection
  • Finding a benchmarking category for sites that don't fit into any particular benchmark category
  • What is the best way to identify landing pages with high bounce rate
  • How to find new keywords to improve content performance
  • Effects of private browsing and incognito mode on data collection

Here are links to resources we discussed in the video:

We will answer your latest questions in a couple of weeks with yet another entertaining video.
