A Guide to Google Analytics

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a tool that can be used by webmasters to monitor traffic patterns among users. It can provide broad information, such as how many people visit a site in a day or week, but it is also able to track very fine details, such as the amount of time users spend on a specific web page. This information can then be used by webmasters to make a website easier to navigate and more attractive.

If you are a webmaster you may be overwhelmed by the amount of information that Google Analytics throws at you. There is a lot of data to go through, and while Google does a good job of providing the data it doesn't offer much advice as to how to interpret it. Our guide "Using the Google Analytics Dashboard" can help you get started with using this powerful tool.

If you are a not a webmaster you may want to find ways to disable the ability of Google Analytics to track you. Some users believe that the detailed information that Analytics gathers is a privacy concern. There are ways to fool Google Analytics no matter what browser you use, and we have a guide that covers this topic as well.
