Whoever reads this book will realize how much data Google Analytics can yield. Of course, data overkill can lead to analysis paralysis. For this reason, Mr. Clifton emphasizes that acting on the data is the single most important aspect of web analytics. Yet it is this that most people do not achieve. Furthermore, Bill Hunt, CEO of Global Strategies International, who Mr. Clifton quotes at the beginning of his book, observes: "Eight out of 10 implementations of web analytics solutions are incorrectly set up." Search engine and web site optimization requires time and resources dedicated to this endeavor.
In conclusion, Mr. Clifton shows with success how web analytics can be used to improve the key performance indicators for one's online success without minimizing the amount of work required to get it done.

I did not read this book but just the fact that the e version is $10 more than the print version is enough to give it one star. Can anyone explain the thinking behind making a product that requires no additional materials, shipping, storage, etc, more expensive than the print version?
So, if you spend quite a bit of money on a Nook, then as your reward, you get to pay more for your ebooks than the print version. Come on B&N, you can do better than that. Of course there's always the Kindle and Kindle apps. FYI the Kindle version of this ebook is $12 cheaper than here.
