Recap: GOVTalks Spring 2020 - Measuring the Performance of Your Website

Read about DSGa's 13th GOVTalks conference, sponsored by our web analytics partner, Siteimprove. For this, DSGa's first-ever virtual event, we introduced the Siteimprove dashboard, a tool that enables agencies to monitor, measure, and improve the performance of their websites and deliver a better experience for users. 

How to Define the Success of Your Digital Properties

In his keynote for GOVTalks Spring 2020, Chief Digital Officer Nikhil Deshpande gave attendees a detailed look at digital metrics strategies and the critical role they play in helping agencies measure, analyze, and report on the effectiveness of their digital properties. He also discussed the ways that GovHub, the state’s official content management system (CMS), and its performance measurement tool, Siteimprove, give agencies everything they need to monitor, evaluate, and improve their website’s performance. 

GovHub and the New SEO

At GOVTalks Spring 2020, DSGa’s Amanda de Zayas, Content Strategist, and Ericca Farrington, Outreach Coordinator, teamed up to talk about Search Engine Optimization (SEO). We learned what SEO is, how search engines work, and what makes up a search ranking. They also explained how agencies can use Siteimprove’s SEO tools to help constituents find their websites quickly and easily via search engines, like Google, Yahoo! and Bing.

Journey to the top of Maslow’s pyramid with GovHub

The DSGa team just finished migrating 80+ websites to GovHub, Georgia’s official digital platform powered by Drupal 8. While this may seem like the end of a long trip, the real journey is just about to begin!

Added Security with Federated User Authentication

Digital Services Georgia is introducing federated authentication for all websites migrating to Drupal 8; providing content management access to multiple sites on the GovHub platform through a single set of login credentials.

With the People: Introducing pilot.georgia.gov

The Digital Services Georgia (DSGa) team is excited to launch pilot.georgia.gov. This pilot site is more than a facelift to the existing Georgia.gov website; it’s a modern way of managing content and interactions.

What To Expect With Your Migration

DSGa's new digital platform was built to ensure our agencies have everything necessary for their users - the citizens of Georgia. Citizens won’t lose access to your site with the migration to Drupal 8, but they will notice the changes when you migrate your agency’s website to Georgia GovHub.

Building Georgia’s Digital System

Digital Services Georgia (DSGa) is building a new digital system for the people and with the people, working with the agencies we work with to assist the Georgians who will be interacting with this system.

Built With the People

The mission of Digital Services Georgia (DSGa) is to make people’s interaction with Georgia state government frictionless, empowering, and symbiotic!

Stop Preaching, Start Supporting

Support is best served as a collaborative, team effort. Recently, we changed our support process and are excited about the changes and how it has empowered our users to answer their own questions.
