Don't use the Google Analytics default for measuring your website's conversion rate. Do this instead: http://bit.ly/1EmQgqQ. 
Conversion rate is one of the best success metrics you can use, but it's often used the wrong way. Here are the best ways to calculate your conversion rate.

Proof that Bing loves Google: http://bit.ly/1E9Rnu4. #searchenginemarketing  
Bing and Google are rivals, right? Well, these 4 searches prove that Bing actually loves Google a lot more than you might think.

The team at First Scribe did a fantastic job creating our new web site. They listened to our needs and requests, then used their amazing creativity to build a perfect web site for our business. Even with several changes and delays by us throughout the process, they never wavered from a high level of customer service and creative thinking. And maybe best of all, their pricing is very competitive and fair. We would highly recommend First Scribe to anyone looking to create, update, or maintain a fantastic web presence. Thanks First Scribe!

First Scribe is the best! I've personally been working with for over a year and I can't say enough good things! Tracking, reporting, redesigning our website and just 'holding my hand' when I have questions. They are always friendly, helpful and respond timely to emails. I would recommend First Scribe to anyone who wants help making their website perform the best that it can!

From start to finish, First Scribe listened to our ideas and goals for our new website, and followed through with a very successful product. We couldn't be happier with our new site, and continue to get positive feedback from our peers. The most asked question... "Who did your site, and can we have their contact information."

Great people with a great methodology. First Scribe took the time to meet with our team to gather and understand our requirements. From there, they designed a well thought-out solution for our marketing web site and put together a detailed project plan. Our roll-out has seamless without any issues and we immediately experienced an uptick in our web traffic. We strongly recommend First Scribe as a business partner.

Excellent Service, our design was great and the people of First Scribe are great to work with!!! High level of professionalism, quick responses and modern approach. The designers were able to translate our vision and create a site that embodied the culture of our organization and that worked with the goals we were trying to achieve. Great work!

We needed some custom Magento development work done, which honestly should not have taken them ultimately longer than a week or two at best. I understand that First Scribe has lots of other clients, but it was apparent that we were at the bottom priority for them as our small list of development items they somehow stretched out nearing a year to complete. Trying to get any information or status updates from them felt almost impossible the vast majority of the time, if they provided info at all. It was like they would respond only to get us to go away again, and repeatedly didn't provide the development work or updates on what was going on by the dates or within the timeframes they themselves had stated. It was very frustrating to work with this company as they provided us an estimate for the completed work (that is, all of the development items we wanted complete) and yet only finished half of them. Then in addition to all the time delays and excuses, they came back saying they wanted more money... when not even yet half the work was done. Some of the times they tried to shuffle the blame for their own functionality they developed out being broken onto us, although we weren't even touching anything with our Magento site the entirety of their development period. At one point they claimed their development was complete, but our staff continued to find errors directly related to their shoddy work. First Scribe was an expensive mistake for us not only for not getting everything they had promised to develop in the budget they quoted, but also for the huge delay we had in finishing and launching our new website. We only ended up with half of what we'd asked and ultimately, had to hire a real Magento developer at extra cost to finish up the rest of what we needed, as well as fix their work. We did not utilize their SEO services, although they seemed to push us hard at times to try and get us to purchase those services from them. It should be noted within the development we asked for was for us to tweak additional meta and social sharing info on our end, which was botched by them, doesn't work as they claimed - in addition to them simply installed an AddThis extension (which should be a red flag to any others with actual developer knowledge who have encountered that service's hijacking issues over the years). I'm really disappointed in our entire experience with this company and would not recommend them to anybody. They were really frustrating to deal with and very trying waiting to hear any correspondence or real update info from.
