Many Hours of Many Days
By Matt and Jessi
Given the simplicity of the book title, this book initially seems to be a bit on the lengthy side. There is nothing simple about the techniques for website optimization set forth here. The author gives you step-by-step instructions for actions to take on each day of the week (an hour a day) for several weeks.
Areas of focus include:
-Web analytics & testing tools
-Understanding visitor needs & behavior
-Understanding website conversions
-Optimizing for repeat visits
-Learning from your results
It's involved work, but that is to be expected when optimizing your website. Many of the steps and suggestions found in this book are not necessary in order to run a successful website, but following the guidelines and taking the actions that you choose to take is certainly worthwhile.
Be prepared to do some serious research and testing while testing your website. This book is a great companion on that quest.
