C34 google analytics worksheet

  1. 1. Google Analytics © 2009, Patrick Schwerdtfeger Create a Google Analytics Account □ Google the phrase “google analytics” and sign up for an account. □ Add your website details and get the snippet of code it provides to you. Notes Install Google Analytics □ Add the snippet to your website code just before the </body> tag. □ If you’re using WordPress, add it to the Footer.php file and you’re all done. □ If you have a custom HTML website, ask your website developer to add it. Notes Explore the Data □ On Google Analytics, click ‘status’ to ensure it is ‘receiving data’ okay. □ Wait a few days for the platform to accumulate enough data to be meaningful. □ Take an hour and click on EVERY link you can, exploring the data available. Notes Easy Opportunities □ Look for the pages with the highest ‘bounce rate’ and improve those pages. □ Use the ‘site overlay’ to see what gets clicked on, and delete what doesn’t. □ Use the ‘content’ tab to see which pages are most popular with visitors. □ Set ‘goals’ and use ‘funnel visualization’ to understand website conversion.
