Google Analytics Setup & Reporting
What Is Google Analytics? Google Analytics is a world leader when it comes to getting an overview of a website’s performance. It is available with free and subscription services, which can integrate with other platforms.
Once the tracking code is inserted into a site a wealth of information is provided which allows web site owners and operators to create better strategies on their digital-based storefront. In doing so allows for a better-informed decision, which leads to an increase in sales and conversions.

It helps identify the number of visitors on our site, the path that people took to get there, the locations they came from and behavioural attributes such as user path, visitor duration, bounce rates and exit pages”
