Katrina over at PushONline Marketing has a great post on the differences between Google analytics and Urchin. If you use either, you may find her post incredibly useful and interesting!
Jeremy from PPC Discussions has written a post on the accuracy of the new Google Adwords keyword tool feature that is showing numbers of actual searches performed per keyword level. A test he performed showed Google was surprisingly within 5% of what his June keyword impressions were. Nice Google!
The great thing about PPC is that it is easy to track and measure. When you link your PPC account with Google Analytics or other data program, you can exponentially expand your wealth of data to really understand who your user is and how they are finding you. All of this is great, but the data doesn’t do any good unless you use it. Don’t wait until your account is in trouble, looking into data now can help you stay on top of small changes in your account and identify opportunities for expansion.
