Google Analytics Training enables you to optimize your website* in order for your site to get more targeted traffic, increase leads, sales and revenue.
Google Analytics allows you to track what visitors are doing on your site. Do you want to know more about your visitors and how your content is performing? Whether you run a website for a home business or a large corporation, Google Analytics is the gold standard for tracking, analyzing, and reporting site data: where are the visitors to your site coming from, what are they looking for, how do they flow through your site (which pages are they visiting), how much time do they spend on each page, where do they go after leaving your site and much more…
