How To Create A Google Analytics Account For Your Website

Need a Google Analytics account, but don’t know quite how to do it? In this blog, we will walk you through how to create a Google Analytics account for your website, step-by-step.

By setting up a Google Analytics account for your website, you will have access to the data that reports how users are finding your site, what keywords they use to search, what pages visitors spend the most time on and lead sources such as other sites and social media. Using Google Analytics can better help you understand the effectiveness of your marketing efforts, visitors and help you to optimise your conversions and sales.
