After months of planning, our web and print teams have set up afresh so that each can concentrate on what it does best. Our web team, Laura, Chris and Robert, are now Form & Function Digital Co-op based in Leith. Design and print continues under the graphics.coop brand with Ross and Steve from our new office at Fort Kinnaird.
Most of our clients want a method of seeing how successful their site is in terms of visitor numbers and other metrics. Using Google Analytics is a popular way of doing this.
Some of the stats Google Analytics can measure are:
- How many visits you get in a period of time
- How long visitors stay
- Which country your visitors come from
- Popular times of day they visit
- What device they use
- How many pages visitors view in one session
Google Analytics works through adding a piece of code with a special tracking ID to your website.
Google have recently announced important changes to the Google Maps API – the interface which allows you to embed Google Maps on your website.
Beginning on June 11, 2018, you’ll need to enable billing with a credit card and have a valid API key for all projects.
What this means for you
