Google Analytics is a service for tracking a website’s comprehensive statistics about the number of visits and any relevant information that a website owner will need. This feature tracks the visits of previous visitors on your page so that you will be able to know which page you need to enhance and which pages are not being visited. The main objective of a web merchant in developing the design of the entire website is that every page needs to be visited so all its products are sold and a business will gain maximum exposure.
A comprehensive list of products and services being offered by a website need to be maximized since the more pages that have, the more you will have to update and pay for. The website owner needs to recover their costs by optimizing each marketing page. This means that visitors need to be induced to enter the other webpages of the website and not just a specific webpage.
The analytics typically include:
- Traffic sources overview
- Average time on the website
- Rate of bounces
- Page views
- Which page is visited the most
