Tracking Social Media Metrics
- October 21, 2012 at 11:18 pm #1205
A couple of qus please:
1. How you count your new social shares each month; and
2. How you measure page value (right hand column of your Analytics snapshot in the September earnings post).

Well the page value is just because I have setup custom event tracking. For example I track affiliate link clicks, email sign ups, resource downloads and have just applied a value to those but its actually meaningless for my purpose so I’ll remove it.
I used this as a base https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiynickQKBZldFVWMGNCdFVOd3djYmxzSG82dUhSbnc to track social sharesOctober 23, 2012 at 12:22 am #1232
Using seoquake plugin to count the amount of likes, tweets, shares,+1s to your page or site and add it to the above spreadsheet.

The problem with the SEO Quake plugin is you have to do it one page at a time where as the way I do it for my reporting is in bulk ^^
I’m yet to find a better way to do it in bulk =/February 15, 2013 at 6:30 pm #2750
Love the blog very inspiring. Have you done any work with Instagram? I use Instagram as the the main tool to drive traffic to my eCommerce Site piecesforpeace420.com. I was wondering if there is any sort of tracking software/Data Base Software out there to identify my “Customers Leaders” that comment, like and participate in contests the most.

You could use Google Analytics to create events/goals for when people take those actions and then create a custom report like this-March 19, 2013 at 6:23 pm #3436
I’m also using seoquake for tracking shares & likes of facebook, twitter & google + page…Best tool ever..April 23, 2013 at 12:32 pm #3948
Do you have a tutorial of how to use google analytics for social media in particulary for facebook. How can you set it so it reports the number of people clicking a particular link that you share on your facebook page and reaching your website.
Thanx!May 9, 2013 at 10:26 am #4422
I’m intending to create a dedicated analytics guide at some point.
But you can use custom reports/dashboards – I have a social media one for example.
