Start Using Google Analytics for Website Statistics

Written by Andrew Wright

Once you have started building a website, you will start to become curious about how many visitors you are getting.  For this I would recommend using the Google Analytics application.

If you’ve listened to me and are using WordPress to build your site, then setting up Google Analytics appears to be a simple process, since there is a WordPress plugin you can use to set up the scripting on your site.

In addition to just the number of visitors to your site, you will also be able to see where the traffic comes from, where in the world the visitor is located, and how much time each visitor spends on your site.
It appears that there is a lot more to the Google Analytics package, but this is all that I am interested in for now.  I will make additional pages on this topic as I receive enough traffic to really start to analyize.
