Using Google Analytics is like understanding a visitor's journey through your website. You can apply measurement, collection and analysis of data to determine the key drivers of your traffic and to optimize your site's performance. Using the efficient yet comprehensive insights and tracking tools Google provides can be one of the most effective keys to truly maximizing your presence, engagement, conversions and user experience. Since real experience and practice is the main enabler of proficiency with Google Analytics, we make sure you have the opportunity to set up a profile, add a filter, analyze trends, segment your data, understand where traffic originates (and why) and discuss the impact of your data as it pertains to your own website(s). All attendees will leave class ready to implement Google Analytics back at their own workplace.

In addition to mastering the skills of Google Analytics, students will be able to take and pass the Google Analytics Individual Qualification exam. Passing this exam makes you certified in Google Analytics and shows your company and clients that you are truly an expert using the Google Analytics tool.

*Please note, if you are taking this class as part of the St. Louis University Certificate requirements, there is a $500 fee to claim your certificate once you have completed ALL requirements.
