"Integrations are among the most important value adds that Google Analytics provides, making it possible to combine both pre visit and visit data to paint a complete end-to-end picture of a visitor's journey through a business. Integrations provide several kinds of important insights/analysis ranging from providing deep insights into what ads lead to high quality traffic (e.g. AdWords integration) to how to better monetize your content (e.g. AdSense integration). Also, Daniel is one of the best people to educate folks on the value and power of these integrations. I have known Daniel for several years now and he is easily among the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to Analytics. He has worked closely with several businesses and publishers and helped them succeed and it is great to get these deep insights directly from him."
