Web Analytics: Why Accuracy Matters
Chances are good you’ve got a data problem. As an analytics company, we recently surveyed the Google Analytics accounts of nearly 150 businesses across industries and found critical errors:
- Over 30% had outdated or improperly placed tracking code.
- Over 50% had misattributed or artificially skewed data due to improperly customized tracking code.
- Nearly 50% were failing to utilize key features (like custom segments & event tracking)
- Over 30% were not properly tracking marketing campaigns.
- Over 30% had misused or failed to use settings for data cleanup.
Making decisions based on inaccurate data means you might misallocate budget, miss out on huge revenue opportunities or watch marketing initiatives crash.
