Happy new year! Although a lot of people were complaining that 2017 were as bad as 2016 but I have to disagree. It was awesome in various perspectives. This gives us hope that 2018 will be at least at the same level of awesomeness. But before we jump straight into 2018, here’s the last batch of useful/interesting/controversial articles I’ve found in December 2017.
This year has almost come to an end. I had lots of challenges but also lots of victories and really positive moments, in both personal and professional life.
To name a few, my 2nd child was born, Omnisend (an email marketing startup that I work in) is rapidly growing, and let’s not forget Analytics Mania.
Believe it or not, but this blog received merely 320 sessions/month in January of 2017. Today, less than 12 months after, it has grown to 35 000 sessions/month and continues to expand, which is fantastic!
Positive feedback from my readers is the best fuel which drives me further and keeps motivating. Thank you!
I am already planning what to release in 2018, how to better serve my audience and I really hope you won’t be disappointed. But first, I’d like to take a vacation until the end of 2017 (for almost 3 weeks) and spend more time with my friends and family.
I will continue checking blog comments, my email, and social media profiles so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I’ll answer them at the earliest convenience.
That’s it for now. See you next year!
Data Layer is one of the main Google Tag Manager concepts which ensures maximum flexibility, portability, and ease of implementation. Without it, there would be no variables or triggers in GTM, therefore no tags would be fired. It is what keeps your tag management running properly. It is the key to unlocking Google Tag Manager’s potential.
In this blog, I’ve already published several articles related to this topic but they are pretty much scattered. That’s why I decided to collect all important resources, tips, and knowledge (that I’ve accumulated so far) and put it in one place. This is an extended Google Tag Manager Data Layer tutorial which explains what the Data Layer is, why is it useful, how to use it, what are best practices, etc.
This time I’m a bit earlier with a roundup than usual. Even though the month is still not over, I hope you don’t mind to get this compilation. If something super awesome is posted today/tomorrow, it’ll be included in next month’s post.
In this month’s web analytics link roundup, a bit more of attention will be drawn to SEO. There was some controversial content published which shook the entire industry, igniting a lot of discussions, questions, etc. Even if you’re not into search engine optimization, this whole situation was indeed interesting to spectate. By reading responses and comments, I learned much more than I expected!
Without further ado, here are my top picks from November of 2017.
