How to Filter Keywords in Google Analytics



Using the wrong keywords is like drinking unfiltered water: you are doing what you need to do–targeting keywords for organic rankings/drinking H2O–but you may be slowly poisoning your campaign/body with the unwanted minerals/traffic. Now, I don’t know too many folks who have been seriously poisoned by unfiltered water (not one of my Google Alerts), but I have seen organic search campaign eventually tank because they didn’t correctly filter their data to determine good keywords from the bad. Good thing we have Google Analytics.

This Week in Drupal SEO News: Drupal 7 Beta Release, Drupal Gardens Goes Open Beta, and Drupal's new iPhone App: Drupad



As you can see from the photo above, Volacci's DrupliPet found itself amongst a wide array of friends this week. Our eccentric and often times culturally-obscure Content Manager babysat DrupliPet on his desk, and exposed him to a slew of vinyl characters, action figures, and PEZ dispensers. Let's just say we lost a week of training with the DrupliPet... but I digress.

The Drupal community has certainly been busy this week: Drupal's iPhone App was released, Drupad, Drupal Gardens was released in open beta, and Dries gave an intriguing interview at the Open Source Convention in Portland, with remarks concerning the Drupal 7 beta and full releases. Join me after the jump for: This Week in Drupal SEO News.

This Week in Drupal SEO News: DrupalCon Copenhagen Initial Program, Drupal.org Redesign Deadline, and Life In A Day Experiment

If any ounce of your body is infected with "nerd" than you are aware that Comic-Con is currently underway at the San Diego Convention Center - conveniently where this photo was taken. What you are looking at is a trolley sign outside of the Comic-Con. Can't read it? Try busting out your Klingon Translator. That's right, in order to avoid any unnecessary discrimination lawsuits and (inevitable) bloodshed, the trolley signs outside the center has been translated to Klingon. Not only am I proud to be a Trekkie right now, but very proud that nerds are rising up to certain level of awesomeness that can only be measured in light years. But I digress. Good news for all you Drupal fans. Join me after the jump for DrupalCon Copenhagen sessions, news for the drupal.org redesign, and a experimental and historical video contest of sorts called "Life In A Day".

This Week in Drupal SEO News: DC Copenhagen Keynotes Announced, DrupalCamps Organizer Survey Results and Google’s App Inventor



Do you want to know why there is a lion in that photo? So do I. Maybe he is earning money to buy a ticket to DrupalCon Copenhagen. If I was a lion, that’s probably what I would do. Or I would just walk in. Because I’m a lion. What are you going to do, ask to see my badge?! I would probably eat your computer first. Then chew up your power cord so you had to rush to an Apple store. But I digress. (Did I ever progress?)

Join me after the jump for DrupalCon Copenhagen keynote speakers, the DrupalCamps Organizer Survey Results and Google’s new App Inventor.
