Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics about a website's traffic. I offered training last week to HMS teachers looking to set up a teacher Google Sites blog for their classroom. Google Analytics plays well with the Google Sites environment and will provide you with some real time data about your website visitors. Some of the data includes, but is not limited to:
  • Number of page visits for the Month
  • Number of visitors and page views for the day
  • Demographics of visitors
  • Browsers used to view your site
  • Desktop Viewers vs. Mobile Viewers
  • The average time users spend on your site
  • 6 month comparison of the data
  • Keywords used to find your site
  • How much of your traffic is generated via. Social Media
The screenshots were taken via the Analytics app for iPhone. The app is currently 99 cents and be downloaded from Apple's website. It is well worth the money.
