Most people, particularly those that have had any exposure to web design, have heard of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a robust set of tools created by Google designed to provide you with a multitude of valuable information about your site visitors. Offering more than just a simple counter, Google Analytics analyses your visitor’s behaviour. It shows you where they go in your site and how long they spend there so you can easily analyse what is working and what isn’t.
Google Analytics also offers extremely valuable information on where your visitors have come from. Have they found you through a search engine? Have they clicked on a link on Facebook? Have they come from a referral link elsewhere.
What’s even more impressive is that Google Analytics can offer you information on your visitors themselves! Where do they live? What browser did they access your site from? What device did they access your site from? What Operating System are they using? What age are they? What gender. All of this incredibly valuable information is available at your fingertips…..and the best part? It’s completely free.
