Web analytics is the measurement, collection, and analysis of web data. Web analytics tools provide useful information about website traffic. This feature is incredibly handy because it shows you how a user interacts with the site, and what content they engage with the most. If you didn’t need more convincing as to why you should be utilizing Google analytics, we came up with a list of the three most important reasons why you should use analytics:
- Helps you take data-led decisions – You can see first-hand the way your website and social channels are performing.
- Makes Reporting Easier – Having the data readily available to you is a big plus. You can easily share with others how your campaigns are performing. You can do this by measuring and acting on the data trends you observe using web analytics software.
- Helps you find the story behind the data – Web analytics helps you understand who your customers are, where they’re coming from, and what their interests are. You can use all this information to improve the experience on your site for the consumer and to optimize the channels that consumers use to visit your website.
Google Analytics Tools
There are many analytics tools on the market. While some of them are free, most of them require a paid subscription. Paid analytics products and free products vary greatly in terms of functionality, features, and support. Google Analytics is the most popular analytics program on the market. It also comes with a free version for those who want to test out the product before they pay for the subscription.
The paid version is known as Google Analytics 360. Google 360 offers additional functionality in terms of report validity and sample sizes. This is mainly for websites that receive millions of page views a month. If your website isn’t receiving that much traffic, it might be beneficial to use the free version of Google Analytics.
Google Analytics can track the user or consumer journey, providing rich data around channels used, locations, and devices. These journeys can then be tracked through to on-site activity, goals achieved, and exit point, as well as returning visitors, which indicates loyalty. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of Google Analytics:
- Easy to install and use.
- User-friendly interface.
- Customizable reports, dashboards and data collection.
- Seamless integration with other Google products.
- Extensive and valuable insights into web behavior.
One of the biggest advantages of using google is that you can seamlessly connect other google products.
