What Is Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is a free tool that gives you insights into how users find and use your website. This tool is used to track and monitor traffic to your website; providing you with valuable information about your website’s visitors.
Google Analytics makes it easy to keep track of your customer’s journey by connecting customer behaviour, channel performance, and more across your website.
What Does Google Analytics Tell Me?
Google Analytics records and displays the following:
- The number of visitors to your website on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- The number of new visitors to your website.
- How popular each page on your website is and what traffic it gets.
- On average, the amount of time spent on your website.
- The pages that your customers enter and exit your website through.
In addition to the information mentioned above, Google Analytics can also track referral traffic. I.e where the visits to the website come from. For instance, visits from search engines, direct visits, website referrals and marketing campaigns including Pay-Per-Click advertising, social media and email marketing.
How Does Google Analytics Track Data?
Google Analytics tracks all of its data by a unique tracking code that we install on every page of your website.
