Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics


“Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics” is an interesting book for digital marketing agents. It covers Web Metrics with Google Analytics as suggested as the book title does. However, the knowledge goes much deeper and explains what you need to understand and beware of as a digital marketer. On top of that, it also gives you insight on how to run a proper digital marketing team.


The book is written in textbook style. It points lots of knowledge you need to know as part of a digital marketing team. The book is designed for team players who are:

  1. Marketer
  2. Data Analyst
  3. WebMaster
  4. Manager

The book are written in 4 parts which covers:

  1. Measuring Success
  2. Using Google Analytics Reports
  3. Implementing Google Analytics
  4. Using Visitor Data to Drive Website Improvement

It is a pretty well written book and it goes through theories which are both fundamental and advanced. However, Google keeps updating Google Analytics and the User Interface is quite different now. But, the book is still good for understanding the basic and some advance knowledge on how to use Google Analytics.


The book is classified as Management and Sales & Marketing in my blog.
