Google Analytics is a powerful tool that can help you better understand your website’s visitors.

In this section, we will be going over how to set up Google Analytics for your website.

First, you need to sign up for an account with Google Analytics. Once you have done so, it will ask you to create a new property. The property is the name of your site and it must be unique to avoid confusion with other sites on the same account.

Next, once you have created the property it will ask you to choose a tracking code which is what allows Google Analytics to track traffic data on your site. The tracking code will be placed at the head of every page on your site and it should not be changed unless absolutely necessary.

Let us see in detail the set up process of Google Analytics

Step 1: Create a Google Account

Google is the world’s most popular search engine. It has many services, such as Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Drive.

Signing up for a Google account is easy and free. You can sign up with your personal email address or with your work account. The first step is to create an account by clicking on the “Sign Up” button on the top right corner of any Google page.

The next step is to enter your personal information, such as your name and password. You can also use your work email if you are signing up for a work account. After entering this information you will be prompted to agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy agreements before proceeding with the registration process.

Step 2: Set Up Webmaster Tools

Webmaster Tools is a service that Google provides to webmasters for free. It helps them monitor their site’s performance, diagnose problems, and maintain their site’s quality.

Webmaster Tools is not a tool for SEO or marketing. It is a tool that helps webmasters improve the experience of visitors to the site.

Webmaster Tools can be accessed through Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster Central).

It is important to verify the contact information for your site. In order to do this, you will need to fill out a contact information verification form on your Google My Business page. This form will ask you if your contact information is accurate and up-to-date. You will also need to enter the website’s address, phone number, and email address.
