  • Tech Cafe | WordPress & Google – better together!

    Salt Spring Island Public Library

    For better or worse Google is pretty much synonymous with 'the internet' In this meetup we will look at the Google 'universe' and how to make the most of it with Wordpress. For the following Google tools we will take a look at what it is, how to integrate it into your Wordpress website, and what it can do for you: • Analytics • Campaign URL Builder • Search Console • My Business • Merchant Center • Adwords (and Keyword Tool) • Trends • Other suggestions welcome (I am deliberately skipping Google+) It would be useful if you set up a google account (https://accounts.google.com/SignUp?hl=en) if you don't already have one (if you sign onto gmail or any other google service you most likely have one!) I will try to keep the presentation at a high level and allow time for you to get hands on and set up these services for you own sites. And it will almost be Christmas, so I may even bring mince pies (http://www.whychristmas.com/customs/mincepies.shtml).... See you there!
