How many of you using Google Analytics? I have use Google Analytics since June 2006. Before this Google Analytics only can be sign up by invitation only but now you can sign up Google Analytics for free.
What is Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is another service from Google which will display eveything about your website. It is actually a site counter anyway but more advanced. With Google Analytics you not only know how many visitors visit your site but you also know how the visitors come to your site, what is their computer resolution, which link get more clicks, etc.
Google Analytics tells you everything you want to know about how your visitors found you and how they interact with your site. You’ll be able to focus your marketing resources on campaigns and initiatives that deliver ROI, and improve your site to convert more visitors.
When the first time I use Google Analytics, the statistics page load too slow. Maybe because heavy traffics bump to Google Analytics server. Anyway, right now the statistics load faster than before. So you don’t need to wait long.
Google Analytics in WordPress
If you have sign up for Google Analytics, I recommended you to download and install this WordPress plugin. This plugin will give you report without you have to login to your Google Analytics account. You can view the reports directly in your WordPress admin dashboard. 🙂
