Here’s again the last post of the month saved for the top 5 interesting Google Analytics related resources I found on other sites. Here are the five for May – you may want to bookmark those as they can be very useful:
The first 3 are from Simo Ahava: earlier this month he created a web app to filter the spam referrals we all get. You need to download it, grant Edit access to your GA views and it will create exclude filters automatically for all known spam sites as of this moment.
Here Simo argues about data quality and explains 3 rules: the rule of data passivity, the rule of data subjectivity and the rule of data scarcity. Check out how to make sure you’re gathering meaningful data.
This one is short, but contains great guidelines how to properly post your Google Tag Manager – related question on support forums like Google+ Google Tag Manager community, the official forum or Stack Overflow.
The Lina Metrics guys updated the Youtube tracking with the latest changes in Google Analytics and GTM. It contains a detailed step-by-step instructions how to create the tags in Google Tag Manager.
Here’s a list of over 50 GA resources in all kind of areas: getting started with GA and GTM, specialized tracking, cross-domain tracking, enhanced ecommerce, attribution modelling and GA debugging. All from Himanshu Sharma.
P.S. Got a Google Analytics question? Send it to me and I’ll try to answer it on the blog.
