Here at Vertical Measures we’re always being asked about our link building methods and what secrets we are holding back. Even though we have developed some proprietary tools and methods, the truth is this: there just are not a lot of secrets.

Last month I attended a couple of Google Analytics classes and they explained that one of the most underused areas of Google Analytics is Intelligence. It was introduced in 2009 and yet many claim to not know about it or just don’t use it.
Intelligence is so smart that it keeps track of events behind the scenes, and when something unexpected happens it sets up an alert to let you know, “Hey, something occurred that you might want to investigate, even though you’ve already played 72 holes so far this week.” These alerts are on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. So when you don’t have time (should have used my 9 iron) to go in a view all the reports in Google Analytics, a quick glance in Intelligence can give you snapshot of any anomalies that have occurred.
