Hi everyone, just a quick post to let you, the blog readers, know that I’ve gone Google. Starting in January I’ll be part of the Google Analytics team.
I wrote a small post on the Cardinal Path blog, but wanted to reach everyone reading this blog and add a little more detail about what I’ll be doing.
[ For those that saw the previous post, sorry for the duplicate content. ]
Before I tell you about my new role, I want to take another opportunity to that the team at Cardinal Path. David, Alex, John, Corey and Dave (in no particular order) have assembled a fantastic team and created a unique place to work.
Many people don’t know all the stuff that Cardinal Path is doing. But I can absolutely tell you that it’s some really advanced stuff, like measuring entire industries using Google Analytics. It was a really hard decision to leave…
With that said, I’m very excited to join the Google team! I obviously love their product and think they will have a significant impact on how companies use data to be more successful.
In my new role I will be externally focused and very hands on with GA. I’ll be meeting customers, going to conferences, blogging, etc. I’ll also help guide some of educational efforts.
My (tentative) new title is Analytics Advocate. I really like this because I’ll be advocating for everyone that uses GA. You got problems? Let me know!
In fact, I promise to resolve the following GA issues in my first week:
1. I will restore organic keywords and remove (not provided)
2. I will eliminate all sampling from GA
3. I will eliminate all tracking code and make the data magically appear in your account.
[ Those are obviously jokes. ]
But seriously, I’m super excited to join a team that can revolutionize how businesses function online.
