Google voice search on my Nexus 5x is amazing. The choice of music, not so much. Am paying for Google Music and actually have "Beethoven" in a few playlists. How is it possible that Google Music launches and plays offensive music from an "artist" that I have never listened to, let alone know about?

Is this a machine learning fail or somehow my account got compromised?

Making use of the Google Analytics Embed API to visualize Multi-Channel Funnel conversions. You can try it on your own data from the comfort of your browser:

Just finished reading +Daniel Waisberg's new book about Google Analytics Integrations. I was confident that I would pick up some tips and tricks and wasn't disappointed!

A couple of things in chapter 11 - Email Data Integration - were not quite clear to me.

First, there is a method about tracking email opens. In the example, the mailchimp uniqid is used for the cid. Do I understand correctly that you are just using this approach for the sake of getting a cid? In other words, you are not trying to actually identify the same visitor who may have signed up on your website and then opened an email from mailchimp. You "just" care about aggregate data for an email campaign.

The second confusing aspect for me is that in the same chapter 11 the mailchimp uniqid is then used for setting the GA userId not the cid. Should you really do that?

Trying to learn about the updates in the new Search Analytics report in Webmaster Tools, but impossible to click the Learn more link. How cruel!

Anyway, here is the link https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6211453#search_analytics after some digging!

Anyone know any Shopify retailers that might be interested to beta test a new analytics app we are working on?

Note to self: geo-targeting is not an exact science! Maybe stick to state level...

In many ways the browser-only Content Experiments approach is more elegant than the standard UI based approach that uses page redirects.  It can be quite difficult to create an actual B page and downright problematic if you want to test a product page.
