This has been a popular session for about the last 6 years and this year’s panel looks to be a great group. Rob Garner will speak first today, then Todd Friesen and lastly will be Ray “Catfish” Comstock.
Rob will start us off today by talking about measuring SEO success. He shows a slide that says, “Paid vs. SEO: the 90/20 search budget conundrum”. This basically says that 90% of the search channel budgets go to paid search while paid search only gives 20% returns. On the flip side, 10% of budgets go to SEO and those playing in the organic space will usually see about an 80% return on all revenue.

On today’s show, we revisited “Web Analytics In-Depth,” a popular show from September 2009, where guests Avinash Kaushik, Jim Sterne and Daniel Waisberg – all leaders in their field – discussed analytics in the present and the future (with that future being the present).
In the first segment, Avinash and Daniel talked about points made in a co-authored two-part paper they wrote: “Web Analytics 2.0: Empowering Customer Centricity” and “Web Analytics 2.0: Empowering Customer Centricity – Part II.”
The paper touches on things like standard practices of analytics and also dives into a new, holistic way of looking at website analysis, dubbed “Web analytics 2.0.” And now that we’re in the present that the past show was referring to (Confused yet?), are the action items Avinash and Daniel deemed important then, still relevant now? You betcha.
