WordChicks Melbourne - the Google Analytics version

Hey Girls

I am channeling my inner 'Olivia' right now and singing Let's get Analytical, Analytical.. I wanna get Analytical.... oh and "Let me hear your Google talk..."

Hah... now try and do that without a vision of leotards and hideous 80s jazzercise videos!!!


This month we have the inimitable Melinda Samson coming along to talk us through Google Analytics 101.

You've got Google Analytics, right? So then what?

Exactly, Melinda's going to talk us through the then what including,

- What the key statistics mean
- Which are your best and worst web traffic sources
- Which blog articles rocked and which ones bombed
- Plus loads more practical tips for using your Google Analytics data to improve your website.

I first heard Melinda talk about such things at WordCamp Melbourne in 2011 and her information was invaluable then, as I'm sure it is now! So RSVP and come along to hear what she has to teach us, you won't be disappointed!

BONUS:: Melinda has also offered to go over one lucky site owner's site and give some insights and advice on what Google sees on your site and how you can leverage that information to improve your site.

To be eligible for this review you'll need to RSVP AND to be present on the night... so sign up, put your site's url in the comments!  We'll be in touch for some relevant details before the event and we'll announce the lucky recipient at WordChicks in September.

6:00 - arrive, mingle chat (no rush, festivities begin at... 6.30, so don't sweat finishing late at work).

6:30 - News and updates from the WP Community.

6:40 - Melinda Samson - Google Analytics 101

7:30 - Hare and Grace for drinks/snacks and ongoing conversation!!

    It would be great to get some expert input on how Google sees this site. I have recently done a lot of SEO work on this site, but feel like I'm flying blind.

    FTP credentials required to load a theme into a site on my MAMP. Heelp! I've done so much hunting for a solution but can't find anything that works. Works perfectly other than that. Anyone else had this problem?
