You analytics data becomes infinitely more useful once you start tracking conversions and revenue. Revenue tracking helps you truly understand what your most valuable pages and traffic sources are and how to improve your website.
Unfortunately, setting up revenue tracking is usually complicated and requires some custom coding. If you're not ready to take that step yet, here's the simplest guide you'll find to start tracking revenue (almost) no matter which analytics tool you use... and all without touching a single line of code!
No matter what analytics tool you use for your website, it's safe to make two assumptions about it:
If that second point surprises you (or you disagree), watch this video to see what the problem is and how you can fix it.
Take a look at the current state of the WordPress themes marketplace and you quickly come away with one conclusion: if you want to sell a premium WordPress theme, it should be ultra-customizable. In fact, it should appeal to everyone and be suitable for every type of website imaginable.

With our new Landing Pages feature, it's easier than ever to create conversion optimized pages... which might lead to the question: do you even need a theme anymore (especially considering that we'll continue adding new page templates for different purposes)?
In this post, you'll discover the difference between landing pages and theme pages, so you'll know exactly when to use which, for the best results.
This post is a public service announcement. We must stop the widespread abuse of progress bars and animated counters and only YOU can make a difference!
We recently introduced progress bars, animated counters and fill counters as new design elements (short codes) in all our themes.

Your "page not found" 404 page is one only a small fraction of your visitors will ever see. It's still a page that can be worth optimizing, though and since it represents an error, it's a great opportunity to help your poor, lost visitors out and re-engage them.
