Google Analytics


Getting Started with Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a free tool that provides you with insights on how potential customers found your website and what they did once they got there. With the information you get from Google Analytics, you can better understand how potential customers interact with your website and make changes that encourage them to stay, make a purchase, or contact you.

With Google Analytics, you get answers to key questions like:
1. How many people visited my website?
2. How much time did they spend on my site?
3. Did they find my site through Google, other search engines, or other websites?
4. Were they local, from other parts of the county, or other parts of the world?
5. Did they purchase something from my site, or take another desirable action?
6. And where did they leave my website?

Top 3 Reports
The following three reports may provide you with useful insights:
1. The Visitors Overview report provides a nice snapshot of your website’s overall performance, with information like:
A. How many people visited your website and whether it’s their first time on your website
B. How many pages people looked at and how much time they spent on your website
C. The percentage of people who came to your website and left without exploring your website beyond the page that they landed on (also referred to as bounce rate)

2. The Location report shows you where your website visitors are located, such as the city, state or country. To access the report go to Visitors > Demographics.
