Hi Pete, nice blog thanks for posting.
For me not addressing potential issues with duplicate content is a common error which leads to lots of duplicate URLs then having to be addressed.
It's more than using the canonical tag as well, it's about understanding things like session IDs and URL parameters and knowing which ones to block from being indexed vs. which ones are actually valid unique URLs that should be indexed to support SEO.
I guess it relates back to the core IA point.
What's your view on handling duplication (small subject!)?
cheers

Afternoon all,

I'm also planning a talk about attribution but not from the analyst/modelling angle that +Russell McAthy is, mine is from the commercial side as that's where I sit.

The aim is to look at the difference between attribution analysis & attribution modelling and discuss how analysts/consultants can help Client side teams understand the value to their business.

Does that sound interesting enough?

Thanks, james

Yes - we can get bogged down in the geekiness of the model but actually the outcome (change in behaviour, thinking) that results from use of the model is the interesting thing.  Is there a way to show what the outcomes might be of using particular models - in terms of how they influence the read of the data onwards?

Story
Tagline
London UK based Ecommerce & Digital Marketing Consultant
Introduction
Experienced Ecommerce chap with over 10 years digital experience Client and agency side, in B2B and B2C. Keen to connect and exchange ideas or engage in random banter.

Since 2009 I have worked as an independent Ecommerce Consultant, helping companies to plan, develop and enhance their ecommerce channel. I do this via consultancy projects as well as hands-on delivery in areas such as digital marketing and web analytics/optimisation.

I either deliver work myself or use a network of talented freelancers and agencies to ensure my Clients get the best possible skills.
