Excellent Web Analytics for Free

 Website Design,Management, SEOWell, I have been researching the internet on how best to monitor my website. I searched around and found that there are a few monitoring tools. The best I could find is free!

First of all, it is important to understand why analytical information about your website is necessary. What is there to know? Good analytics help you learn about where your visitors come from and how they interact with your site. And from this information it makes it easy to improve your results online. Write better ads, strengthen your marketing initiatives and create higher-converting websites.

Google Analytics is the best. You simply go to http://www.google.com/analytics/index.html and either sign in with your Google account or create a new account.

For me, it has been a real blessing because I had no idea where people were coming from. Now, I know where they are coming from and that helps me target my marketing efforts towards the most cost-effective marketing strategies.

So, after you create your Google Analytics account, you have to add the analytics code to each of your web pages. After this is done, Google will begin tracking your site and reporting to you.
