PVAEC announces new online course - Introduction to Google Analytics [PVAEC - Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative]

Nearly every business and non-profit organization has a website, and probably a Facebook page and a YouTube channel. Individuals have them too, to promote ideas, to share a vision, or to educate the public. No matter what brings you to the Web, your hope is that a lot of people see your website, your wall, your tweets, and your videos. Why else go to the trouble of sharing them?  

In our new online course, Introduction to Google Analytics, you'll learn  how you can track not just the traffic to all of your online content, but also determine which content is the most appealing, where your visitors came from, what devices they used, how long they stayed, which links they clicked, and where they went when they left. 

This is a 6 week 24 hour online course.  Choose one of the following start dates:
6/19, 7/17, 8/21, 9/18, 10/16, 11/13, 12/11. $99.
