This year again, I was invited to talk at Superweek, the premier Analytics/PPC conference in Eastern Europe.
I talked about tag management best practices and mentioned my Google Tag Manager setup for WordPress. In this post, I am sharing my setup with you.
Hi folks, get ready for more Raspberry Pi and Google Universal Analytics goodness
As you’ll see, I had a little spare time on my hands, so I shot a screencast on how to capture system events such as boot, reboot and shutdown sequences in Google Universal Analytics (UA). This can be useful when using UA for performance monitoring.
Damion: I’m sorry, mate. I’m afraid I have bad news and good news.
The bad news is: I don’t own a dog so I’m not sure as to what I’d want to track.
The good news is: I can give you pointers on how to do it. I have done enough tinkering in the last 2 weeks so I’ll let by blog readers do it this time around. You guys get to test (and prove) the concept yourself!
In this experiment, you will attempt the following: track your dog’s location (in 5 minute increments), in relationship to your house, with Google Universal Analytics.
I have a few ideas about that and I’ll be sharing them after the jump.
revolutionizing analytics measurement with a unified protocol,
giving you a better, user-centric view of the customer experience via multiple platforms and devices,
giving you access to custom dimensions and metrics,
tracking offline activity (although you need *some* connectivity to send data home to the GA mothership)
In this post, I intend to share a technique / proof of concept for on-the-fly measurement of PDF files downloads with Universal Analytics.Without Javacript.

Google just updated its real-time reporting capabilities in Google Analytics.
Obviously, real-time reporting only serves as a snapshot of your site’s traffic but Google managed to make it fun and useful – again.
