Create data reports in a non-technical format so your organization's leadership can make more informed, strategic business decisions analyzing more accurate data.
A proper web analytics implementation ensures increased data integrity (i.e. more accurate data). We make adjustments to your analytics setup ensuring highly accurate reporting.
For example, if employees or business owners visit the website, we make sure those visits are not confused with customer visits. We exclude those visits from the data entirely. We can set preferred locations according to customer locations.
We categorize visitors into groups according to what web pages are visited. For example, if visitor A views information about "Product B" we place that visitor in the"Product B" remarketing category. This allows us to show advertisements based on product B leading to increased sales. We create custom, non-technical dashboards for business owners to review and analyze the information.

Analytics Test For Business/Website Owners
This will check if an analytics install is positioned properly. The analytics script should be located at the very top of the page beneath the head tag.

- Right click anyhere on the page and select "View Page Source". This will open a new tab with the source code.
- Hit "Ctrl+F" on your keyboard and type
- The next line should contain
<script>followed by your analytics code
That's it. If it's not there, it does not mean an improper installation. It does mean your analytics platform is not optimized.
Analytics Service Features
Exclude Employee And Executive Web Traffic
If your company has an inhouse web developer or development team, in many instances your entire dataset is rendered useless.
For example, a web developer might work on a company website six to eight hours per day. Imagine what that will do to the "Average Time Spent On Page" Segment. Company employees spend more time on company websites than other visitors on average. If we don't exclude that traffic specifically, the website time metrics will be incorrect. Metrics such as acquisition, engagement, behavior and conversions and many others are incorrect. Not only incorrect, business owners make unknowingly poor decisions based on that information.
Google Analytics Code Placement
If you have installed Google Analytics on your website, go to your homepage, right click and select "View Page Source". This will show the website's source code. Hit "Ctrl+F" on your keyboard and type
<head> in the search box. This will highlight the
<head> tag in your webpage. The very next line should contain your analytics code snippet.
Remarketing allows us to show advertisements to website visitors based on interest. For example, if a website visitor spent time viewing the "product A" page on your site, we can show them advertisements featuring "product A" to increase the likelihood of future purchase.
Block Unwanted Bot/Spider Traffic
The optimization service blocks malicious bot and spider traffic to your website. A bot is a program that scans your website, and we make sure we block potentially malicious programs. These programs also increase innaccuracies within our analytics reports.
Create Non-Technical Custom Dashboards
Dashboards are reports created within analytics that show data important to your business/website. These dashboards can feature any data that your organization deems important.
We are able to track particular events to track important content. For example, if you just released a video on your website we can track what kind of customer pressed play (or didn't press play). You might learn that a particular video is popular with females between 18-45 that lived in a specific area.
We can label customers according to how they interact with your website. For example, a customer visits the "Men's Footwear" section of your website. We can then label that visitor with a "Men's Footwear" label. This creates targeted remarketing efforts for E-mail marketing and/or advertising campaigns.
Social Media Profile Integration
We integrate your social media profiles with your analytics setup to track how social media platform effectiveness.
Additional Search Engine Integration
We want to track traffic and visitors from every search engine, not just Google. So we add additional search engines like Bing and Yahoo to accomplish this.
Referral Traffic Categories
