Google Analytics Review

“Use Google Analytics to make valuable decisions about how and what to update your site.”

What do you like best?

I really think one of the best features with Google Analytics is the ease of use, and clear dashboards. You get keep insight into how people are using your site, where they are travelling to, and also how long they are staying on your site, where they are going to afterwards, and how they got to your site.

But the dashboards aren’t just the cool things.  One thing that I always make a habit of doing as soon as I install Analytics to a site is to exclude my IP from being tracked. Since I might be on the WordPress Website for hours at a time testing, I don’t want to skew the numbers. By excluding your IP, you are ensuring this.

If you need help doing this, let me know and I can walk you through it quickly.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I dislike is the navigation can kind of get lost. Administration of Google Analytics can also be a little tricky.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What pages to update the most, Where people are referred from, What countries are visiting the site.
