    I find the new analytics interface quite confusing, and I am usually quite good at getting my head around these types of services. I think they tend to over complicate things sometimes.

  2. Any reason you all do not have a LinkedIn like button. I don’t have to tell you that you may be missing out on some free publicity for great articles!

    • Yeah – it was a hard decision. We didn’t want to clutter up the blog with too many social media buttons.

  3. I think the information you present on your pages is great, but why do you have to use video? This video is 5:27, which means I need to allocate 5:27 to read it. If it were a text article, I could skim it and find the bits relevant to me much quicker.

  4. Amazing stuff on Google analytics. Your video is very helpful for me as i am new to internet marketing industry and your video teaches me well to make a good use of analytics. Very helpful.

  5. Brian – Great advice and thanks for the shout out! We’re glad you found Cyfe to be useful. :)

  6. Not really any secrets. Cyfe is good suggestion but this is simply a basic introduction to dashboards.

  7. Good video – great intro to dashboards :)

  8. Great video and awesome dashboard templates. Thanks for sharing.

  9. This is RETARDED….Can u please tell me WHY THE HECK KISSmetrics is something speaial? We are advanced users…This kind of tutorial is not helping!
