Ever have one of those days when the next big thing has just launched and everyone is waiting for the good news, but instead of spiking, Google Analytics seems to suddenly have flat-lined? Before you have a coronary there are few things to keep in mind.

Our dashboards and monthly reports feature traffic source pretty prominently. You are probably well aware of how much of your traffic is from Direct, Search, and Referrals - if you're not, learn more about Traffic Sources in this Google Analytics Training Video. Google Analytics reporting devotes an entire section to Traffic Source, but if it isn't meaning much to you perhaps there is something missing from your reports.

11-week Intensive Training
We launched our next 11-week Intensive Training in September with 10 stations.  This is our second group in the Knight Foundation supported training initiative – just five more training sessions left!  Apply today for a spot in 2013. 

Thanks to our spring training group we have a better program lined up for the fall. We’ve refocused our photography sessions and added more critiques for stations. Stations that took part in the spring training shared some nice words about our work with them.

“The NPRDS/Knight training proved to be invaluable to our work at KUNC. We not only got the chance to connect with other like minded stations at the leadership conference, but the 11-week training sessions brought both a broad overview of the digital strategy and a practical application of it to our newsroom staff & management.” - Jim Hill, KUNC Digital Media Manager

We’ll continue to update and modify our training curriculum to better serve stations!

Fall 2012 11-week training participants: KERA/KXT, KUT, VPR, WABE, WBHM, WESA, WKAR, WLRN, and WUWM.

Spring 2012 11-week training participants: Delmarva Public Radio, KCUR, KETR, KUNC, WFPL, WFSU, WNIJ,and WSKG
