Why Should You Have Google Analytics?
The long and short of it is that Google Analytics helps you figure out precisely what you’re doing wrong and what you’re doing right.
It is a detailed report that tells you about all the types of traffic on your website. This information is crucial to help you make decisions about your content.
You will get to know what type of individuals visit your website and what they do on your site. This is the insight that you can utilise to built and improve your website regularly. Additionally, you’re able to measure any tactics that you’ve been using on your website and see how efficient they were at getting visitors to your website.
What Information will Google Analytics Give you?

- What your visitors do once they are on your website
- The types of content/website pages that are the most popular
- Which search terms are visitors are using most
- How many people complete specific actions (like adding to cart or completing a purchase)
