Google Analytics is a fantastic free resource for measuring and tracking what’s happening on your website. It can be considered as a tool that analyses your website traffic and the effectiveness of your digital marketing strategy.
How Does Google Analytics Work?
There are two types of data that you can collect in Google Analytics. They are:
- User Acquisition Data. This is the data about your users before visiting your website.
- User Behavoiur Data. This is the data based on your users’ behaviour when they are on your website.
