Do you know what people do when they get to your site? Google Analytics tells you things like how much time someone spends on a page or how quickly they bounce; but using events, social tracking and in-page analytics, you can follow them as they navigate your site. Want to know where people are getting stuck? What actions are they taking and where? How do they move through your site? How can you optimize your site based on this information? We’ll teach you using a case study from YourFuckingPollingPlace.com to show you how we tracked and optimized in real time.
