Google Analytics

Analytic information (such as how many people are visiting your site and how much time they spend on various pages)  is extremely valuable to making sure your site is accomplishing what you want it to accomplish.  The Google Analytics tools (see sample screen below) are free and they are world-class... that's a great combination you don't often find.  Here's how to use Google Analytics with your Web site.

Adding Google Analytics to your site

  1. Go to www.google.com/analytics and sign up for an account.
  2. On the Google Analytics site, get your tracking code. This Google article explains where to find it: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1008080
  3. Login to your Elexio Web site, open the Site Settings area, and click on the General Settings tab. (For more see Site Settings).
  4. Paste the entire tracking code snippet provided by Google in the Google Analytics Code text box. This will automatically place the tracking code on all your website pages for you.
  5. Click Save Settings and you're done.
    • Typically, Google Analytics will begin to generate analysis reports within 24-48 hours.
