Tracking Traffic and conversions with Google Analytics.
A real boom for internet marketing, the Google Analytics service collates detailed statistics about the amount of traffic experienced by a website. The service not only shows where people found the link to a certain website, but what pages they visited once they were there and what activities take place, giving businesses information that is very useful when it comes to increasing web traffic and the monetising potential of a site.
Web analytics was originally the preserve of information technology professionals and webmasters, but Google Analytics is specifically aimed at internet marketing – and it has been a great success, soaking up some 57 per cent of the website statistics market.
Google Analytics is able to track visitors to a site coming from all forms of referral, such as other search engines, email marketing, links within documents, display ads and Cost Per Click CPC. When used together with AdWords, internet marketers are able to review the success of their campaigns, using the service to track the amount of users hitting the landing page and seeing all the conversions that are made – whether they are direct sales, downloads, specific page views or the generation of leads. When it comes to Search Optimisation, Google Analytics can show which keywords are performing best and tailor their online advertising accordingly.
The way that Google Analytics works is to give casual users – such as website owners or business owners – the data in an easy to scan “dashboard” format, with more technical and advanced levels of data analysis available to internet marketing professionals and computer experts. This analysis is able to show which pages on a site are the best and worst performing, while the data on where visitors to a certain site come from is very useful when it comes to targeting markets and planning internet marketing campaigns in the future.
