How to Set Up Google Analytics Tracking
If you’re launching a new website, one of the keys to its success is setting up Google Analytics.
“Why?”, You may ask.
Google Analytics allows you to see how people are viewing your site, what’s getting them to your site, how they’re interacting with your site, and you can see which pages are getting the most attention. Being able to establish these points will help you focus on your site’s strengths and show you where you can either spend more time developing or putting your efforts into how you get people to your site.
