November 16th The Benefits of Adding Google Analytics to your Website

Google Analytics

Good morning friends!  Today is Friday November 16th

NATIONAL FAST FOOD DAY

What is your favourite fast food restaurant?  Every once in a while a MacDonald's Happy Meal is my weakness.  I usually keep all of the toys or books and give away to the children at the Orangeville Food Bank.  I think Fast Food is OK once in a while - but certainly not healthy for you everyday.

 

 

BUSINESS TIP OF THE DAY - USE GOOGLE ANALYTICS

My business tip for the day is - make sure that you have Google Analytics installed on your website or blog.

WHAT IS GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Google Analytics is a FREE tool offered by Google which will gather Analytics  for the purpose of understanding and optimizing web usage i.e basically observing and analyzing a  visitors behaviour to a website.

HOW DO I INSTALL GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Using a gmail account - which your business or blog would benefit from having anyways - go to www.analytics.google.com

Sign up for a new account and follow the steps to add your website.  Once you have set it up Google will generate a unique code for your website.  You can provide your webmaster with this code and they should be able to install it onto your website.

I use WordPress for most of my projects and there are multiple WordPress plugins that will allow you to quickly & easily install the UA code to your site.

BENEFITS OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

  1.  Analyze your sources of traffic
  2. Analyze the visitors to your website
  3. Monitor specific page traffic (i.e. one that is really popular?)
  4. Watch bounce rate
  5. Understand traffic flow
  6. Review historical data
