Agencies that help businesses grow online need web analytics. Their tasks are difficult, because now it is not only a matter of evaluating the return on investing in ads, but also a constant search for growth points in a dataset. To make it easier for customers to find a partner that is professionally skilled in web analytics, we have launched an agency certification program for Yandex.Metrica.

A new feature has become available in Yandex.Metrica – the beta version of the cross device report.

Online + offline + calls: track any conversion with Yandex.Metrica
16 May, 13:26

Customers often place orders online, but purchase the goods in person, or they find out about a service on a website and then call the business over the phone. Now these and any other conversions that happen off the internet can be sent to Yandex.Metrica. This means you can associate customer behavior online with their offline actions. Doing so will allow you to assess the impact of different traffic sources and better understand your customer’s journey. You can also use this method to appeal to customers that are active offline through targeted advertising.

Multi-step goal segments

User parameters: your questions answered
12 August 2016, 19:20

In wake of our user parameters workshop, we put together a list of the most frequent questions we received concerning the two ways to transfer data: online and offline.

Introducing the user parameters feature
12 August 2016, 11:40

Yandex.Metrica now has a new feature — user parameters — which allows you to analyze your audience more deeply by assigning your own customized attributes to your site’s users. Moreover, you can do this both during the session and after its completion.

Workshop. Transmitting user parameters offline
11 August 2016, 16:10

This article we will talk about uploading user parameters offline. This method lets you add information that you already have in your database (such as customer income or loyalty status) to your reports.

Workshop. Sending user parameters online
28 July 2016, 19:05

To add your own customer data to reports, you must transfer your user parameters to Metrica: you can either send them online (while the visitor is on the site) or offline by uploading a csv file. We'll discuss both methods in detail over two article-workshops.

New segmentation
30 May 2016, 16:25

Now you can also incorporate data from that unique user's previous sessions, as well as information that Yandex.Metrica has gathered about their characteristics. In other words, the new segmentation capabilities let you work with the user's entire session history saved on Metrica.

Why can't the traffic source be determined?
18 May 2016, 11:10

More and more sites are switching to the secure https protocol and this has become an inconvenient fact for many website owners whose sites are still running on http. Specifically, sites who have not yet switched to https are seeing higher percents of direct visits.

Heat maps for groups of pages
28 April 2016, 12:35

Say you want to know how visitors interact with your product pages, but you have a lot of different products on your site and each individual product page gets too few clicks to do an analysis. Now you can gather clicks from all your product pages and display them as one page.

18 April 2016, 14:00
