Plugging Away – Depth of Knowledge for March 2015

Depth of Knowledge Newsletter
Volume 3.2
March of 2015

Hey Friend of Jeffalytics!

March was an awesome month, capped off by two weeks in Europe for vacation and a speaking gig at SMX Munich. It was refreshing, relaxing, and just what I needed.

Getting back to work after that type of vacation always takes a few days, but now I am plugging away at creating my online empire (or something like that).

Funny how difficult it is to transition from unplugging from our devices to plugging away at our long term goals. Of course, I think both are necessary to achieve balance.

Analytics Tool Watch

Here are some analytics tools that I have come across since we last spoke. Some of these are startups, while others have been around for years. By linking in this newsletter I am not personally endorsing these tools.

  • Filament ( – Analytics tool for measuring blog engagement.

More Cool Tools and Startups

All Analytics and no play makes Jeff a dull boy. Here are some interesting business startups and tools that I have recently come across that I thought you might enjoy.

  • Keyword Tool ( – This is a fantastic interface for obtaining Google Autosuggest results. Highly recommended.
  • ( – The founder of this tool was prominently involved with SMX Munich and the SEO community in Germany. Good looking product!
  • Monitor Backlinks ( – New tool working on automated link discovery through your Google Analytics account.
  • Mass Planner ( – Social Media automation suite. I currently use SNAP for this out of WordPress, but always looking for more.
  • Talkwalker Alerts ( – Google Alerts alternative. Because yes, I think having alternatives is a good thing.

Popular articles by Jeffalytics

Since I was traveling much of the month, I decided to write fewer articles and focus more on high quality pieces.

The biggest piece was my guest post on Moz, which showed Advanced Content Analysis in Google Analytics. This article was well received, which made writing it from my hotel room in Munich totally worth it.

I decided to tone down my posting at Knowledge Land to see what would happen. Nothing really happened at all (good or bad). If a tree falls in the woods with nobody around… Here is the only article that I managed to write: How Can I Increase the Conversion Rate for My Clients Website?
