You know what’s cool about social media? Posting a question on Twitter to the guru of all things Google Analytics — Mr. Avinash Kaushik of Occam’s Razor — and having him respond by DM immediately, followed by a personalized and thorough email. Avinash gave me some great tips on understanding analytics even more, especially when it comes to your questions about feed readers, keywords and different plugins (see “Analytics Part II: Who, What, When, Where“).
I’ll be posting Part III in the coming weeks, so stay tuned, and please let me know what other questions I can help answer — that’s what my “Ask Me” page is for!
Five For Friday time!
