Why I Created this Tutorial

It's been a couple of years since I set up Google Analytics for a new website and the interface has changed so much in 2021.

It took me a while to figure out how to get my UA-Tracking code on Google Analytics - and then I found I didn't need to copy and paste over into All-in-One SEO because all you have to do now is connect Monster Insights.

Monster Insights connects to your Gmail address, grabs the code on your behalf - and then makes your Google Analytics available within your WordPress dashboard.

Why Set Up Google Analytics?

When you have a new website, it's important to set up Google Analytics to track various metrics on your site, such as website engagement, audience demographics, traffic sources etc.

Hi Lauren, long time!

I had both my sites set up already, but when I checked today, there was only one site in Google Analytics! So I followed your instructions and the 2nd site is all up and running in Google Analytics now.

Thanks a lot!

Here's to our success....

Yes, I would also like to add my thanks. I have put off setting up GA on my new site because of all the changes.
