Meet the New Google Analytics Partner Gallery
Google Analytics is lucky to have a vibrant ecosystem of analysts, advocates and developers who like to share, teach and talk with other users. To make it easier to find services and apps that are important to your business, we’ve re-launched the App Gallery as the Partner Gallery. Learn more.
Segmenting Brand and Generic Paid Search Traffic
Many advertisers with paid search campaigns advertise on queries mentioning their brand (like “Motorola smartphone” for Motorola) and also on generic searches (like “smartphone reviews”). To make analysis of both as accurate as possible, we've added a new feature which automatically identifies brand-aware paid search clicks tracked in Google Analytics. Learn more.
