Or, “A case study in the dangers of relying on data that is easy to obtain instead of getting the data that is actually useful.”

In this presentation Calvin Powers will walk through his experience using Google Analytics to come up with strategies to build the audience for his podcast and how it went horribly wrong. He’ll show you how he got on the right track when he figured out how to collect data that is actually useful instead of just using data that is easy to obtain.

You’ll learn about the WordPress plugins he used to collect the right metrics from his site and how to use them on your site with Google Analytics. You’ll take away a better appreciation for learning to ask the right questions before you dive into all those snazzy looking Google Analytics reports.
