Hopefully by now you’ve built a website that you’re at least partially happy with. And if you’ve installed a site counter then you’ll at least know you’re getting some visitors. But where are those visitors coming from? Are they clicking through from another site, or are they coming from Google? And which pages are they looking at on your website? And how long are they staying there?

To answer these and many more questions you need to install Google analytics on your website. Google analytics is one of the best web analytics tools, and best of all its free. Here’s how to set it up on your WebEden website.

How did you get on? What have you found out about your visitors?

We’ve added more tutorials on this series on Google analytics:

    Yes – have google analytics running on all the sites that I build for clients.

    I have a single google account and all the websites are added to that account. The upside for me doing it this way is that I don’t need to keep logging out and in to get reports for different clients (with different accounts/passwords).

    The downside is that if they don’t want me to maintain their site after a year or so (pah! that will never happen!) then their statistics are lost when you create a new, standalone account for it.

    The Dashboard has some great analytical tools on there and I very much look forward to Webeden helping us explore them :-)

    Hi Sean,

    Usually Google analytics take a day or two between putting it on your site and it saying that it is receiving data.

    Is this problem now solved?

    If not, what’s your website address?

    Thanks,
    Ken
