Google Analytics For Cross Device Measurement

Multi-Device

User behavior is not limited to a single device, and very often people jump between devices expecting a smooth transition. As Michal explains (did you buy her book already?), there is a myriad of techniques to create rich experiences that can satisfy (and hopefully amaze) them. But how can we be sure that those techniques are bringing the desired outcome? Using Analytics. Data is the best way to understand how people behave online, what they like and what they don’t.

As I mentioned in the Web Analytics Process framework, the first (and most important) step when approaching analytics is to define goals and build a set of Key Performance Indicators before you start worrying about data collection. And this is not different when it comes to cross device measurement, maybe even more accentuated as we have multiple sets of goals (one set for each device).

So, before we get into how to collect cross device data and which kind of reports you will have access to, here is a table I believe you should use in order to define some of the goals for each device. As you can see, I divided it into Micro and Macro goals, so that you know which are the most important goals for each device.
