Measure custom marketing campaign into Google Analytics using campaign tagged URLs.

Campaign tagging inbound links for your campaigns allows you to compare the performance of your marketing and also understand how people interact on your website.

Campaign tags include:

Medium – how the message is communicated
Source – where the message is seen
Campaign – the overarching name of the marketing initiative
Content – optional tag to distinguish different ad variations
Term – optional tag to use for non-AdWords CPC keywords

Back to basics: use Google Analytics to measure conversions

Goals allow you to measure macro and micro conversions, allowing you to understand which marketing channels are performing for your website (and mobile app). There are 4 different types of goals you can setup with +Google Analytics:

1. Destination for people viewing a particular thank you page
2. Event for triggering a conversion based on an interaction
3. Duration for how long someone spends on your website
4. Pages per session for people engaging with your content

Learn about the different goal types in more detail at http://www.lovesdata.com/blog/2015/google-analytics-goals/

Google launched 'Fi' wireless service in the US. Would you move to Google's wireless service?

Key benefits:

1. Ability to automatically switch between networks and Wifi depending on signal strength
2. Competitive pricing at $20 USD per month (plus $10 USD per GB for cellular data)

Read a quick rundown at http://www.lovesdata.com/blog/2015/google-launches-wireless-service/

I recently got a new non-N6 phone. If they were to relax that requirement and allow other devices to be used, I would be an Apple fanboy camping out in front of the store in sub-zero temps to be the first to get on... But for me, it's just a little to soon to drop like $700 on new hardware. Course that didn't stop me from putting an invite request in.

Time to get secure! There are a number of ways to keep your Google Accounts secure, including these 3 tips:

1. Choose a strong password: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32040

2. Set up 2-step verification: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/180744?rd=1

3. Perform a security checkup: https://myaccount.google.com/

You can also use a special USB security key for 2-step verification. This allows you to plug in your key instead of having to type in your verification codes from your phone. Read this post on Digital Inspiration for an overview (http://www.labnol.org/internet/google-usb-security-key/28868/) and Google’s support section for more details (https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6103523?hl=en&ref_topic=6103521).

Setting up a meeting with someone you haven’t met? This app helps you understand how to talk to them and gives you insights into their personality.

Learn how to use Crystal in this article on +The Next Web by +Owen Williams at http://thenextweb.com/apps/2015/04/15/creep-on-your-friends/

Apparently I’m “extremely perceptive, inventive, and forward-thinking, but lacks patience and might seem aloof at times.”

What does Crystal say about you?

Pizza in the alley: Surprisingly pleasant spot to sit and enjoy pizza. BYO a cold beverage and find a little stool to perch. Very friendly staff. I enjoyed the mushroom pizza the most!
