Setting up Google Analytics

If you’re serious about achieving the most out of a new website, you will need to run through a checklist of tasks to make the site effective and your efforts measurable.

One of these is to set up Google Analytics, since Google dominates the search industry, by far most of your potential customers will come via Google.

Google Analytics set up needs to be integrated into your site during its development, or within a few days after launch.

First, what the Dickins is ‘tracking’ on a website? It’s how you measure success on the site, such as events like clicking certain action buttons and it obtains information of use for you about the visitors who come to your site, which is then handily available for detailed reporting in Google Analytics itself. Google Analytics is an online product provided by Google.

It’s all part and parcel of making a website goal orientated.

The tracking itself is achieved by placing a piece of tracking code into each page you want to track.
This bit of code is also provided by Google.

To put it into your site, you need to be quite comfortable in HTML, or speak to a developer. The code is a piece of script that enables Googles search engines to ‘work’ efficiently with you regarding the visitors it’s sending to your site and then record and pass information to your Analytics account.

After you have installed the code, you then need to activate tracking in the Google Analytics account itself.

There are many things we can do with tracking. Newsletter signups, transactions and enquiries can be tracked and many more. We also can link AdWords, which is Googles tool for advertising, so that we can track how many people come via adverts to your site.

If you need any help with building a new site, then it’s well worth getting a good design house to apply all these steps for you, preferably whilst building a modern Responsive website to your needs.
