A Beginners Guide to Google Analytics

A Beginners Guide to Google Analytics

On the subject of statistics that we went over last week, I find that Google Analytics is a powerful tool in finding out about your website and the people who visit it.

You can even have multiple websites that you can track which is ideal if you have different businesses.

Unfortunately it cannot backdate any stats so I advise setting up as soon as you can. You have to give it some time to gather data so I remember leaving it at least a week before you go back and look.

Remember it’s good to check your stats but you shouldn’t spend your whole day on there so it’s best to have a set time to check them. As I said in the last post, I like to check and record everything on the first of every month.
