  • Title: Bryan Cranston on User Experience
    Descriptive info: It may not surprise you but.. Bryan Cranston.. hasn t.. written exhaustively on the subject of [web] user experience.. In.. a recent interview with Fast Company.. , he made some very relevant and interesting points about how to work with new people on the team.. He describes his notion of poison created by poor attention to detail.. I think this translates perfectly to describe the additive effect of a poor user experience on a web site:.. My thing is to be the honesty police and help out these directors by saying, “My side of the bed is over there.. We have to adjust your shots in order to keep honesty to the character.. What married couple  ...   if you didn t do that, it would be what I call a pinch of poison.. You give the audience a tiny pinch of poison.. They can take that.. They can take two or three or four pinches.. But they might not feel great.. They might not be able to articulate why they’re not attaching themselves to the show.. But they might say, “Why did that happen?”.. One broken link, your user can take that.. Expose them to two or three problems and they might not feel too great and certainly might decide not to visit again or to buy from you.. Tags:.. Leave a Reply.. Click here to cancel reply..

  • Title: Other traffic sources that contribute to your direct traffic numbers (Google Analytics)
    Descriptive info: It s worth knowing what makes up.. direct traffic.. in your analytics reports.. Why? I ve been seeing a strange set of numbers in Page traffic reports in Google Analytics recently: when comparing traffic sources for the homepage, I ve seen much higher bounce rates for direct traffic than for.. organic Google referrals.. Direct traffic is.. usually defined.. as traffic coming from:.. people typing your address directly into their browser s url bar.. bookmarks, and.. Google search auto-completion.. When thinking of direct traffic in this way, it s hard to understand why direct visitors to your homepage would bounce more often than those finding you via natural search.. Surely people who know who you are and have taken deliberate action to visit you would be more likely to get beyond the homepage?.. Possibly visitors are simply coming for your phone number or street address, finding it in your header or footer and then disappearing.. Or maybe you happen to own a national daily newspaper and visitors are just scanning the headlines before leaving again.. These behaviours might explain some of the direct traffic bouncing but surely not in the quantities I  ...   should be able to take action to correct it.. So, what other links can count as direct:.. Links from PDFs and Word docs.. Links from offline apps (e.. g.. Outlook, Tweetdeck, etc.. Missing tracking.. Untracked AdWords campaigns.. Untracked 3rd party shopping cart.. 302 directs.. Server stripping the gclid.. Javascript encoded links.. Obviously broken or missing links and IDs should be fixed, but how about those links from PDFs, Word and other offline apps? Step forward the.. Google URL Builder.. Simply by creating custom links via the URL Builder, you can easily share urls that will make much more sense in Analytics later.. In the following example:.. t75.. org/2012/06/when-you-should-ignore-bounce-rate-and-when-you-shouldnt/?utm_source=twitter utm_medium=social utm_campaign=BounceRate.. I ve created a link to my earlier.. article on bounce rates.. that I can share via Twitter.. Breaking the url down, you see at the end the three attributes GA uses to differentiate this link:.. utm_source=twitter.. utm_medium=social.. utm_campaign=BounceRate.. Using this bespoke link I ll be able track visitors from Twitter much more effectively.. Furthermore, these Twitter visitors will now be removed from the catch-all direct traffic pot, thereby making that collection of visitors much more accurate as well.. Double win!.. google..
