  • It’s part of my members site, I will PM you on G+ rather than get pitchy here….

  • Hey Chris, you mentioned a new tracking script… where does one find that? 

  • Hope you can make the panel for the next show Travis…

  • Nice work as always Chris. Thanks for all you do to educate the community!

  • Great webinar Chris. I’m looking forward to implementing Google Plus Analytics.

  • That pesky Google did it again: cannot stand still lang enough to read the instructions before there is something new, to Plus, Analytics, Search…you name it.

  • I thought I could get this done in 30 minutes Vegard, but Google kinda threw me for a loop by updating the interface and adding a ton of new reports. This is probably going to end up being a 3 part series, with a indepth look at social reporting, link tracking and then a deep deep look at conversion tracking and sources.

  • My best friend Boomhauer painted those for me Thomas, still on the fence as to if I want to add a URL. Love to have you for the part 2 analytics tracking and part 3 conversion tracking . Getting the show notes up today!

  • Google Plus Analytics Webinar is an intro only; more is to come. The important point here is to start to use it, as it is about to get better.

  • Great hangout Chris. Sorry I missed it live. I’ll be sure to catch the one next week. Thanks very much.

  • Most people haven’t a clue about what to do with Google + Analytics so it’s great to have you showing us the way. When I was in the corporate world, the first thing they did was train you how to look at the stats to figure out your business. Social Media and IM is an enigma when it comes to figuring out how to find them in the first place, so THANKS Chris for filling in the gap!

  • I need Circles on my door!

    Nice video Chris. Enjoyed being involved.

  • Thanks for the good words Rocque! Margie and I just watched the show on our Google TV, I am rather proud of the real information I shared. Just goes to show you that a working class guy can get the job done, even though he is not the polished professional that the world seems to expect… or I wish I could be.

  • The Google authorship part is really interesting and how to integrate Google Analytics since most people can not explain this. You give a wealth of information in exchange for just a bit of time. It is great to know that I can incorporate Blogger now, and I guess it is time to start using Picassa. Thanks for this share, and I look forward to part 2.
