We all love Google Analytics, right?   It gives us an abundance of data, but it can be hard to sift through it and know what to truly focus on.   In my recent blogs, we’ve looked at the hidden potential of your analytics and we even took a closer look at bounce rates.   This time we’re…

Do You Understand What Bounce Rates Mean for Your Digital Marketing?

Have you ever clicked on a website only to realize that it’s not what you wanted or needed? Maybe a quick glance at the home page and you knew that you were in the wrong place. Or, maybe you clicked an ad by mistake. Either way, you clicked the “X” instead of interacting with the…

Case in point… I…

Instant Gratification

People are not very patient. Actually, let me rephrase…I am not very patient (although I doubt I am alone in that statement). As a consumer, I rely on technology every day and I’ve come to expect quick results. If I have a question, I don’t drive to the library – I consult Google. If I…

Keeping up with Google

Where Google goes, we will follow. With over 2.3 million Google searches each second, it’s easy to see why – Google rules the internet.
