  2. 2. Introduction • Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content.
  3. 3. Why Google Analytics? It generates detailed statistics about: • A website's traffic (visits, unique visitors, Pageviews, Avg. Visit duration, Bounce rate etc.), visit location, device used etc. • Traffic source (search engine or referrer) & medium (paid or organic) • Measures conversions (sign ups, form fills etc.) & • Measures Sales (for e-commerce websites).
  4. 4. How does it work? • Google Analytics works by means of a small snippet of code that you include on all of your website pages. • The tracking code contains a unique ID that corresponds to each Google Analytics property. • This code snippet activates Google Analytics tracking for your site, which collects and sends visitor activity to your Google Analytics account.
  5. 5. ACCOUNT, PROPERTIES & PROFILE Accounts: You are required at least one account to identify the properties you want to track Properties: In an account, you will have to add a property of the site from which you want to collect visitor data. After adding a property you will be given a tracking code/snippet which you will have to install into your website. Profiles: A Profile indicates a classification of data from a Property Account Property Profile

  8. 8. GOALS • You can set up individual Goals to track discrete actions, like form fill, transactions with a minimum purchase amount, the amount of time spent on a screen & number of pages/visits. • Goals are limited to 20 per reporting view.
  9. 9. Metrics & Dimensions • Metrics: Measure data Metrics are individual elements of a dimension that can be measured as a sum or a ratio. Eg. Visit, Pageviews, Pages/Visit, Avg. Time Spent, Bounce rate etc. • Dimensions: Describe data A dimension is an descriptive attribute or characteristic of an object that can be given different values. Eg.
