Analytics and Google Analytics specifically is something we all probably use, on a daily or at least weekly basis.
But how much do you really know about it?
How well do you really make use of all that data?
Google has just announced an online course to make you a Google Analytics Guru.
Or at least a would be ninja.
The course registration has already been opened, so go ahead and at least get on board.
You need to have a Google Account of course, and it would be obviously beneficial to have Analytics :>
The first lessons are being released on October 8th.
The following is copied from the course outline and shows what the highlights are and what each unit will contain
The course unit contents
So without knowing the details you can see that the course will teach you a lot of useful and actionable stuff.
Google has made quite an effort on this from what I can see and they intend to include
At the end of it all you can take a final course exam for certification. Why not get yourself a Google Certification I say!
People love courses, certifications and experts, so your customers will love it and you will learn a lot from it too.
Go register now and you can start it next week or at your own pace afterwards.
