Getting started using Google Analytics
This is part of a series on using Google Analytics.
Part 1 – How to create a Google Analytics account.
The following is a screen for screen showing how to signup for a new Google Analytics account.
Sign in or create an account.
The following screen shows up for me after I clicked create an account.
I clicked Add account.
If you do not have an Google account you will likely go straight from the Google Analytics screen to the following screen when you click Create an account.
Here you can choose to create a new Gmail e-mail address or use your own e-mail account.
After you have filled out the above information for a new Google Account and clicked Next step you will see this screen.
Click registration to continue.
Create a New Account. Here you can see example information that I filled in.
I made a new gmail account for this tutorial.
Go through and fill out and then click Get Tracking id. The tracking id is used for connecting SEO plugins to your Google Analytics account. Some plugins do the process automatic others you will need to login to your account and find the tracking id and insert it into the plugin.
We are now in the backend of Google Analytics in the Admin screen.
Clicking the left arrow beside the Area name (in the above screen). My site name is Easy web. One goes back one step to the (for me) My web sites admin screen.
