ShareTweet Meaningful SEO Metrics – Going Beyond the Numbers Moderator – Brian Clifton Speaker – Matthew Bailey Speaker – Peter Young Brian Clifton introduces the concept of web analytics by saying that for many it can be off-putting, however Brian defines it as “measuring the user experience” in order to improve it. Two types of tools – on and off-site analytics. On – what happens when a visitor comes, what do they do, how do they engage? To a large extent it is site-determined, and within our control.
