Working in the Silicon Valley definitely has its advantages even though it sometimes takes a toll on you :) . Search Marketing and Analytics conferences take place right in our backyard and we need to be there (we really don’t have to, but we like to!).

In the last two weeks, we had back-to-back conferences and it was great to meet friends and learn and share experiences with the brightest minds in the industry. We participated in SMX West and had a one-day Google Analytics workshop in San Jose. We then participated in eMetrics (and the Web Analytics Association Gala dinner) and co-sponsored and spoke at the first Google Analytics User Conference GAUGE 2011 in San Francisco, (and somehow still managed to get client work done!).

I wan to specially thank the workshop attendees at both SMX West and GAUGE for their commitment and investment in learning Google Analytics and the great questions and discussions we had. I promised to provide a list with a number of useful posts and help topics, so here it is. Enjoy! :)

Thank you again for participation and attending the training sessions and I hope to see you soon!

    Hi Feras and everyone,

    I’m trying out the new version of Google Analytics, and I cannot seem to figure out how to show a view that includes goal conversion rates along with number of visits, so that I can compute # of goals by traffic source. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Also, is there a resource to ask these types of questions anywhere? Not the ‘how do you set up goals in GA’ types of questions – there is a ton of content written around that kind of thing – more like the confusion of the web interface, and how to learn my way around it.

    Thank you!

    Hi Terry,

    The team here also experienced the same problem you did with visits and goal numbers/percentages not being in the same view.
    We provided input to the GA team about adding the visit column, and I’m sure we are not the only ones who want that type of view.

    As for a good resource to ask questions, the GA help forum is a great place to ask questions.
    I’m sure some of the questions you have are already on the forum.

    There is also this GA report finder you can use to find your way around the new interface.
    We certainly found it useful!

    Thanks for your useful information. I want to track internal campaign using the GA Site Search. Is it possible.

    Thanks for the comment. You can definitely track internal campaigns within GA using Site Search, here is a link to a very good article on the topic by our friend Justin Cutroni: Internal Campaign Tracking using the GA Site Search.

    Thanks again,
