If you’re like the majority of bloggers, you most likely have Google Analytics happily installed on your site.  I know I do!  And the data presented can be quite useful indeed….but I’ll bet you weren’t aware of these five super tips courtesy of Beyond the Dashboard: 5 Tips for Data Diving in Google Analytics:

  • Instead of the default “last 30 days” view of your analytics, try exploring different extended date ranges.
  • Explore the Traffic Sources reports to get a better understanding of your traffic “mix.”
