4.0 out of 5 stars Third Edition is Good But Not Great 11 Feb 2010
By Mister Fenster - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
New technologies like Google Analytics change so fast. I purchased the third edition of this book from among a group of three or four books on this subject because it was the newest release. A second consideration, for me, was that I wanted a book specific to Google Analytics rather than a book focused on the larger subject of Web analytics. I wanted a book that would point me at the important features of this tool without reading an extra 300 pages of analytics theory.

This book delivers as a quick start guide and reference to Google Analytics, but it also has some minor flawed. The coverage of advanced applications of Google Analytics is good. It presents clear examples of how to use all the features of Analytics, and puts all those features in a larger context. The book is both a blueprint for setting up your site analytics, and a reference you can revisit later. That larger context of how to set up your first analytics program is what makes this book worth buying. There are plenty of topics on the Web about using Google Analytics, but you don't get a good guide to the big picture of how to set up your analytics program from a bunch of disparate topics scattered around the Internet.

This new edition has some flaws. Especially in the first third of the book, some topics aren't very well written. For example, in the introductory section of the book, where they compare Google Analytics to log file analyzers, some of what is said seems to be wrong, and the information on setting up your tracking code is a bit outdated. Minor problems but worse than what I would expect in a published book.

Bottom line, it serves the purpose of an introduction and guide to Google Analytics. I'm using it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Google analytics back to back. 21 Oct 2010
By Usama Qasem - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good book that explains Google Analytics in a really good way.

Two things i have against the book:
1- Doesn't really say much about web metrics.
2- Google Analytics is a product that move very fast and I don't think there is a book that can handle that.

My advice: read the book but keep your self busy with the tool it self for better understanding.

3.0 out of 5 stars analtyics 23 Mar 2010
By Dinah R. Berch - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I manage the analytics account for my company and really wanted some helpful assistance for using the more complex functions of analytics - like event tracking and custom reports. Unfortunately, this book assumes a higher level of knowledge of javascript and web-lingo than I currently have, and just doesn't break things down as much as I was hoping.

Thought out well. I am a web hobbyist who likes to get the math right before putting more time into web design. Now time to go back over each chapter and implement.
5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Book for Google Analytics 26 Aug 2013
By Mahahind Charan - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It took me a long to read the full book and apply it for my business. And I came to conclusion that its really great book but there are too much of graphs, comparisons and other stuff which makes it difficult to understand for beginners. Overall its a great book for SEO guys.
