Google Analytics Explained

  1. 1. @AlexF_Oliveira
  2. 2. @AlexF_Oliveira Why Install It? Analyze top metrics such as • Sessions • Average session duration • Bounce rate • Conversion rate
  3. 3. @AlexF_Oliveira and
  4. 4. @AlexF_Oliveira A few of the many questions about your website that you can answer using Google Analytics (GA) 1. How many people visit my website? 2. Where do my visitors live? 3. Do I need a mobile-friendly website? 4. What websites send traffic to my website? 5. What marketing tactics drive the most traffic to my website? 6. Which pages on my website are the most popular? 7. How many visitors have I converted into leads or customers? 8. Where did my converting visitors come from & go on my website? 9. How can I improve my website's speed? 10.What blog content do my visitors like the most?
  5. 5. @AlexF_Oliveira How to install Google Analytics First, you need a Google Analytics account. If you have a primary Google account that you use for other services like Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google+, or YouTube, then you should set up your Google Analytics using that Google account. Or you will need to create a new one.
  6. 6. @AlexF_Oliveira Install your tracking code Once you are finished, you will click the Get Tracking ID button. You will get a popup of the Google Analytics terms and conditions, which you have to agree to. Then you will get your Google Analytics code. This must be installed on every page on your website. The installation will depend on what type of website you have.
  7. 7. @AlexF_Oliveira Where to install it? If you have a WordPress on your own domain, you can use the Google Analytics by Yoast plugin to install your code easily no matter what theme or framework you are using. If you have a website built with HTML files, you will add the tracking code before the </head> tag on each of your pages.
  8. 8. @AlexF_Oliveira Set up goals After you install your tracking code on your website, you will want to configure a small (but very useful) setting in your website's profile on Google Analytics. This is your Goals setting. You can find it by clicking on the Admin link at the top of your Google Analytics and then clicking on Goals under your website's View column.
  9. 9. @AlexF_Oliveira Goals will tell Google Analytics when something important has happened on your website. For example, if you have a website where you generate leads through a contact form, you will want to find (or create) a thank you page that visitors end upon once they have submitted their contact information. Or, if you have a website where you sell products, you will want to find (or create) a final thank you or confirmation page for visitors to land upon once they have completed a purchase.
  10. 10. @AlexF_Oliveira Goals You will name your goal something you will remember, select Destination, and then click the Next Step button.
  11. 11. @AlexF_Oliveira Standard report features Most of the standard reports within Google Analytics will look similar to this. At the top right, you can click on the drop-down arrow next to your website to switch to different websites within all of your Google Analytics accounts. Or you can click the Home link at the top.
  12. 12. @AlexF_Oliveira Audience reports These reports tell you everything you want to know about your visitors. In them, you will find detailed reports for your visitors' age and gender (Demographics), what their general interests are (Interests), where they come from (Geo > Location) and what language they speak (Geo > Language), how often they visit your website (Behavior), and the technology they use to view your website (Technology and Mobile).
  13. 13. @AlexF_Oliveira Acquisition reports These reports will tell you everything you want to know about what drove visitors to your website (All Traffic). You will see your traffic broken down by main categories (All Traffic > Channels) and specific sources (All Traffic > Source/Medium). You can learn everything about traffic from social networks (Social). You can also connect Google Analytics to AdWords to learn more about PPC campaigns and to Google Webmaster Tools / Search Console to learn more about search traffic (Search Engine Optimization)
  14. 14. @AlexF_Oliveira Behavior reports These reports will tell you everything you want to know about your content. Particularly, the top pages on your website (Site Content > All Pages), the top entry pages on your website (Site Content > Landing Pages), and the top exit pages on your website (Site Content > Exit Pages). If you set up Site Search, you will be able to see what terms are searched for (Site Search > Search Terms) and the pages they are searched upon (Site Search > Pages). You can also learn how fast your website loads (Site Speed) as well as find specific suggestions from Google on how to make your website faster (Site Speed > Speed Suggestions).
  15. 15. @AlexF_Oliveira Conversions If you set up Goals within your Google Analytics, you can see how many conversions your website has received (Goals > Overview) and what URLs they happened upon (Goals > Goal URLs). You can also see the path that visitors took to complete the conversion (Goals > Reverse Goal Path). Speaking of goals and conversions, most of the tables within Google Analytics standard reports will tie specific data to your conversions. For example, you can see the number of conversions made by visitors from California in the Audience > Geo > Location report. You can see the number of conversions made by visitors from Facebook in the Acquisitions > All Traffic > Source/Medium report. You can see the number of conversions made by visitors who landed on specific pages in the Behavior > Site Content > Landing Pages report.
