Been Dazed & Confused about GA, but not anymore!

Actually I’ve been doing pretty good with GA since I started using it about a year ago. I’ve created my own dashboards thanks to a tutorial/article by Jill Whalen. I’ve read a lot of information and can finally do a lot of amazing things with GA not only for myself but for my clients. It’s nice to finally use a metrics package on an ECommerce site – joy!

But today I found a period chart of the elements regarding GA. Too cool! Much like the one SEL put out years ago regarding SEO (and they constantly update it), it’s simply amazing.

It was made and published by a certified GA expert by the name of Jeff Sauer @ Jeffalytics. The GA elements have been split into four main categories: Product, Metrics, Reports, and Features. I’m hoping to squeeze more info into my automatically generated reports that are sent out by GA to my clients.

Here’s the one for SEO by SEL.

Such good information! I have so much to do but will probably spend the next hour just absorbing all the information it has.

Here is the full article.

We Currently do not Support the Location

Blumenthal saves the day again with this detailed post how to get your map in order should you receive the dreaded “We Currently Do Not Support The Location” message in the Google MapMaker. It happened to me once before, I did nothing and it fixed itself, this time I’m not so lucky. I’ll be trying this later on to see if I can reclaim my place on the map and more importantly my reviews!

G+ for all your Google Places Needs

Google Places is now Google+Google Places has never been a 100% working product as far as I’ve seen and I’ve managed PLENTY of accounts for clients since October of 2010 when it seemed like *the maps* were here to stay. Now Google has decided to make G+ the “Center of Gravity” for local search… I’m not sure what to think at this point, I just hope it works. Here’s a collection of articles regarding this recent turn of events. I’ll add more as they come in.

Regarding this link… the author has to say:
“*Disclaimer – If you absolutely must tinker with your Google+ Local page right now – check out this little write up. I think we should all hold tight for a while to see what happens while a lot of the kinks are worked out so things don’t get really screwy. Anyway, if you are one of those kind of people that cant help but mess around with stuff – Check out this post first for a little help.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself…
