4 Reasons To Use Google AnalyticsDo you remember when you first learned to ride a bike?  It sort of seemed overwhelming and difficult.  You had to remember to watch what was ahead of you, pedal, keep your balance, and watch for traffic all at the same time.

But in time, you learned to ride a bike and do it well. Analytics is a complex tool, but that makes it incredibly useful. Yes, it takes a bit of getting used to. It’s not one of those intuitive, at-a-glance tools that put everything right at the fingertips of the average user.

Using Google Analytics is sort of the same.  Analytics is a complex tool, but that makes it incredibly useful. Yes, it takes a bit of getting used to. It’s not one of those intuitive, at-a-glance tools that put everything right at the fingertips of the average user. But then again, YOU are not average!

Top Four Reasons to Use Google Analytics

Analytics can be used to:

  1. Track traffic sources
  2. See which keywords people are using to find your site
