Here’s a scenario: you’ve spent countless hours on the design of your website, with the input of several experts. You’ve based your design on the knowledge of your Web designer and the marketing and business savvy of either yourself, your team or the execs. You’ve even invested heavily in search engine optimization, Pay per Click and social media to ensure people are coming to your site.
Six months in, you find your rankings are high in the search engine results page (SERP) and you have a fair amount of traffic, but the time users are on your site and high bounce rate is painting a very different picture of the success of your website.
People are coming to your site, but they are leaving it quickly without taking any action. This means, you’re ready for the next step in Internet marketing: conversions. It’s time for landing page optimization. Without it, your money and your efforts for your site are going down the drain.

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.

Good morning and welcome to the final day of SES San Francisco. We have another full day of coverage planned for you starting with the very excellent Tim Ash (@tim_ash) CEO, SiteTuners.com and all around smart guy.
Mike Grehan once again welcomes us to the show. Conversion Conference is going on today. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Tim jumps up on stage with a cheerful “Good morning, everybody!” and then mocks the room for failing to respond enthusiastically. Hee.
The four pillars of building trust online: It’s not about technology.
The most important things you’ll learn about marketing have nothing to do with technology. Marco Polo brought silk back from China and everyone went, “Ooh cool.” Radio? “Ooh, cool.” We’re still the same. It’s not the technology.

This session began with a 30-minute technical delay because Bryan’s iPad bricked and his presentation needed to be downloaded, converted to PPT and put on the conference machine. Now in desperation, we are going to go through his brother’s version.
Webinar version is available on Market Motive, so don’t worry that he will be going very, very fast to do 21 secrets in 31 minutes.
Bryan starts with Q & A.
