Gosh! I Love Google Analytics!

Last Update: December 08, 2016

Hello WA Family

The beauty of being in this wonderful community is that Wealthy Affiliate teaches tons of awesome stuff, don't you agree? :)

Google Analytics is so awesome .. it is not only a fantastic way to monitor how much traffic our sites are getting and where is it coming from ....

But if we are able to use if properly we can get so much information including our bounce rates, where are our popular pages or articles are; and even our conversion rates. Isn't that amazing?

You can even set goals in Google Analytics to find out the specific traffic source, the specific action you want people to take, etc..

And once you know where the traffic comes from and how many people saw your offer and took action, you will be able to focus best on your marketing effort.

Wonderful, isn't it?


Take for example, if you want to know the source of yr traffic, you just have to go to:

Google Analytics --> Acquisition --> All Traffic --> Source/Medium

You will be able to find which sites send you the most traffic! Awesome, isn't it? :)

And now you can focus where to put yr marketing efforts on!! :)

Here are some amazing training on Google Analytics :

Google Analytics

Beginner's Guide To Google Analytics

Analyzing Traffic For Content Idea Sales

I will share with you this quote I like by Sun Tzu :

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

This quote may not be appropriate but my point is ... know yourself and know where yr visitors come from.:)

That is all for today, my dear friends!!

Have a nice week!

Hi Jewel, I have followed Jay's training for putting goals and affiliate links on Google Analytics and have followed it all fine until you put the events code to your affiliate link. Do you have any idea on how you do it or should I contact Jay direct?

Knowledge is power. I love that Google allows us website owners to use Analytics and Search Console for free. They are very beneficial to our success.

So true, without google anayltics, we probably have to purchase some paid verison tool. Thank you Robert.:)

Thanks Jewel! I am still struggling to learn. Last night I was so excited to have verified in Google A. that I tried to do the Fetch thing, had just seen some training on it. It was late at night, probably not a good time. Now I find I have managed to capture that pesky ///, even though I was trying to be careful! Here's a shoutout to many who tried to help me get verified yesterday: Double Tap; Boomergp08; Loes; paulgoodwin; and one more who monitored the WA Affiliate Program classroom and responded with a link for me. Name escapes me, apologies! Thanks again, Lynne

I really like the quote, Jewel.

One Question. Have you noticed how many visits are coming from Russia? I have had a lot of visits from there and from one spot in particular. I find that quite weird.
Reply
JewelCarol Premium
I didn't receive such visits, Wayne, you may want to filter them:
Reply
Wayne66 Premium
I don't think that what I am seeing is spam because I'm not getting any comments. The visits have dropped off a bit. I have invitations to leave comments at the end of my posts but none are coming. Don't quite understand that. There is space available at the bottom of my posts so ?????
