    wow, interesting and disturbing – shows you can’t just assume the all powerful google analytics are telling the truth ALL the time

      Thanks Daniel! Google Analytics wasn’t designed for these devices. The information itself is correct but lacks granularity.

    Hi Priit,
    This post used to contain a URL conversion tool but it seems to have disappeared. Will it be coming back??

    Thanks for this, I’ve been using the URL builder for a while and it works great. But I have never used it for tweets. You say that tweets from desktop clients register as direct, I have recently switched from to using bitly to monitor tweets, do you know if these bitly links also show up as direct?

      Roisire, we use tagged URLs and shorten them with The visits will apear under traffic sources > campaigns.

    Google Analytics is a tech oriented analytics suite. It measures technical things mostly.

    Systems such as KissMetrics and Kontagent will measure consumer-focused and business-oriented things, and is much more interesting to understand how your social business actually performs.

    What would be very useful would be a comparion of different free and non-free solutions out there for social/online services – where the focus is on understanding the performance of your serivice rather than “page-views” and referrals/traffic.

    Any good tips here?

    It’s a really good way to measure social media success. Thank you for sharing it but I hope you will make a video about how to set up it, cause it seems like a bit confusing but I’ll try :)
