Attribution – Last is not always the best

Speaker: Russ McAthy, Stream:20

Within this presentation we will discuss the different types of models, how you use each type of model. And how to communicate through the jargon to explain them to a business person. Attribution should not be a black box – we will open the box and uncover what people have been hiding.


Paying for it

Speaker: Nicholas Redding, Hargreaves Lansdown

Google Analytics changed the Digital Marketing landscape, and opened up Web Analytics to the masses. But as organisations grow their online presence, a free tool may not be enough.

Attribution analysis vs attribution modelling

The goal of this session is to discuss what attribution analysis and modelling really mean and how they can be applied to help businesses make intelligent decisions.

Getting to the People behind the Keywords

Speaker: Carmen Mardiros, Mardiros Marketing

Popular keyword analysis techniques often lead to more questions than insights. This is because they’re numbers-focused rather than people-focused. As most good SEOs know, the power of keywords lies in the underlying intent of the searcher. But there is little information for us, practitioners, on how to actually determine meaning and intent in large keyword portfolios (often hundreds of thousands of rows).

In this session, I’ll show one possible approach for breaking down keyword portfolios into different intentions using the meaning of keyphrases. It is my hope that we can develop an analytical approach that applies to various verticals and is practical to use with large sets of data.

The Digital Analytics Association (DAA)…What’s in it for me?

Speaker: John Lovett, President DAA (and Web Analytics Demystified)

The DAA has been advocating for the web and digital analytics community since 2004, but are they really representing a global perspective? Many think not.

Discovering the WHY, not just the WHAT

The why behind the what, a somewhat tired adage now days. I’m keen to open the discussion up to look into the ways we investigate and resolve site and customer experience issues on a day to day basis, the tools we use and of course introduce some of the approaches we have seen in practise.
