Google Analytics, Bounce Rate, etc
While dropping ECs, I read some posts where people complain about their blogs' high bounce rate. I didn't know what they were talking about so I turned to Google of course. I discovered Google Analytics and I'm still learning how it all works. If blogging is just a hobby for you, then the data collected by Google Analytics is not that important. If blogging is your business and a source of income, then I suggest you read up on it. You'll also learn about conversion rate optimization or CRO, the art and science of persuading your site visitors to take actions that benefit you, by making a purchase, offering a donation, or subscribing to a newsletter. You should also check out Google Webmaster Central, it has a lot of tools you can use for your blog.
