Google Analytics/Webmaster tools and Going Beyond the Customiser

We bring you another two great talks this month: an SEO themed talk on Google Analytics/Google Webmaster tools and a talk aimed at beginners on how to get more control over your website without coding.

As always we'll be in the upstairs room of The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer from about 6.30pm. There'll be plenty of chance to chat with our other friendly and welcoming members and to ask questions if have them both before and after the talks.

We hope to see you there!


----------------

Supercharging your Google Analytics and Google Webmaster tools setup on Wordpress

Phil Pearce - Freelance PPC / SEO / Web Analyst

Phil will give us an SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) themed talk first. He will walk us through the auto configuration files for Google Tag Manager which outputs Google Analytics and recommended Google Webmaster settings. Also Phil will cover enabling structured data (JSONLD) which will improve your organic traffic.

It promises to be a really interesting talk on a subject we haven't covered before.

Level: Intermediate +


----------------

Beyond the Customiser - learn how to get more control over your website without coding

Rob George - Web developer and business owner

Do you need to make a change to your WordPress theme but there just isn’t an option in the menu to do it? Do you want to backup your site but are flummoxed by the array of plugins and code out there available to do it? Then this talk is for you!

Rob will cover how to perform really useful actions without special software that will take your WordPress site to the next level. Learn how to:

* set up and edit a child theme from the browser

* backup and restore your website with complete confidence

If you’re already an expert then see how these tools can be used to allow you to help out non experts when they don’t have a local copy of the website or a child theme.

Level: Beginner +


----------------

We will be upstairs in the function room, here is a handy video showing you how to get there...

    With lucky timing, appsumo have come out with a deal on a Google Analytics course. It's enough to get certified for $39.

    I'm 1/3 of the way through and it's fantastically thorough from the very fundamentals. I thought other attendees might also be interested:

      Added website link - which contains details of all social etc... As the Facebook group is invite only, we are not promoting that so much :)

    Dear all
    I really hope to come tonight but currently am feeling very unwell, so I may not make it. I'm not going to cancel my spot because if I perk up I will definitely come, but if I don't make it I apologise but seem to have come down with a bug :(

    September 6

    • Simon P.

      Hope you feel better soon Helen. If you can't make it keep an eye on Twitter as we will try and live stream the talks. See Martin's comments in here for more.

    Hi All, This next couple of talks sound right up my street and I'd like to come, but I am a bit concerneed about access at the venue, (which is why I've not attended any sessions before). I have mobility issues and have noticed on the instagram video that there is quite a steep set of stairs to the upstairs room and no handrail. Does anyone know if there is a lift or any other entry point? (Otherwise I think I might be sliding back down the stairs on my bum! ;-) )

    • Helen K

      Hi all, I think that since there is now a plan to live-stream and there will be YouTube videos available later, I will skip the concerns about getting into town and about access at the venue this time around. I'll change my RSVP so that someone else on the waiting list can enjoy climbing the stairs! ;-) Hope all the technicalities of filming go well.

    • Hannah S.

      Sorry we won't get to meet you this time Helen - but do feel free to ask questions / get involved using our social media channels. More info on those here - http://wpbristol.co.u...­

      September 6

  • Martin O.

    I'll try to live stream this on periscope - when we start broadcasting, the link will be posted from my twitter and periscope accounts @martinoneillco If you post a question on periscope or here, I'll ask it to the presenter for you. The videos should be available on bristolwordpress youtube channel a couple of days later

      You're a legend Martin - thanks for sorting this out for us! :0)

      September 6

  • Hannah S.

    We're filling up really fast for this event so I've upped the attendee limit.

    We'd be so grateful that if anyone can't make it they do change their RSVP so others can take their space. Looks like we've got lots of new members signing up too which always makes for a fabulous session. Looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks time!! :0)

  • Beth

    Wish I could be there. Away until the 14th visiting family. If someone writes up the highlights afterwards it would be hugely appreciated!

    1 · August 16

    • Simon P.

      We will be sure to post any links to slides on here and Twitter etc... Possibility we might film things as well :)
