If you are new to Google Analytics or looking for better ways to follow and understand web traffic to your site, a short, but very practical post by Darren Rowse called How I use Google Analytics ‘Compare’ Feature to Motivate Me to Grow My Blog is worth reading.

I like how Daren took a relatively simple topic and in a few short steps, including screenshots, demonstrated how to put it to practical use.

Try out his technique on your website and I guarantee you’ll learn something new about your site.

If you aren’t familiar with Darren Rowse, I highly recommend watching his talk from WDS and getting your dreams back (if you’ve lost them).
