Google Analytics Introduces Many New Features, Including Content Experiments

Posted by Rainey

Google has been putting some serious muscle into Analytics lately.  I have never been so excited about statistics in my life, seriously.  And yes, you did catch me reading the Google Analytics blog.  I have long been a fan of Analytics, but these new features are pretty awesome. Let’s dig in.

 

Events Flow

This feature is for anyone needing help understanding how users navigate a website? Now, I can see how people navigate the website and where they leave.

Social Value

Measuring the value of social media has certainly been a challenge.  Google Analytics Social Value quickly shows which networks are delivering the best results and which are converting to earn the most cash.

Content Experiments

I saved the one that I am most excited about for last, Content Experiments.  I was already ramping up to some A/B testing for a site that I run and this should make that process much less painful; so long that it works as it does in the video.

The idea:

  • Create a couple variations of an existing page.
  • Add these pages to Content Experiments and decide how often to show the new pages.
  • Add the generated code to the website.
  • Sit back and let Google decide on a winner!

I will be trying this out soon and will post an update on how things go.

These are the 3 updates that I am most excited about.  Let me know if you have a favorite that I did not mention.
