Google Analytics Tips – Discover What People Click On Your Web Site

You don’t know it yet, but you’re going to benefit from learning a few Google Analytics tips to make the most of your web site.

While it’s easy to set up Google Analytics, unless you spend a lot of time checking your web site stats, you probably don’t know what a goldmine of information you’re gathering.

In this quick Google Analytics tips video you’ll learn what people think of your web site, and what they click on every page!

Google Analytics Tips to See What People Click

Once you know what people are clicking on, you can optimize your navigation tabs and create more compelling graphics. You can also streamline your options and remove unpopular ones.

Note: The Google Analytics tracker looks for links, and chances are your opt-in button is not a link but rather a “button”. That’s why it’s important to track opt-ins using goals, and looking in your email management system per opt-in form.

    I used to not know what to look for – so that was frustrating. Then I used to get obsessed – I’d check my stats at so many intervals throughout the day. Not I get a traffic report daily if my traffic spikes beyond a certain point. And I’ll check my stats a handful of times per week.

    It’s nice when you can hone in on what’s working, spot a trend and then hone in on it to increase both traffic and conversions!

      @Ricardo Bueno I went through the obsessed over stats phase too. ;) The pendulum can swing back and forth on that one!

    This was my first time ever trying this. I have not really spent much time in google analytics, much of it is still like learning a foreign language. For example, bounce rate and % exit stuff.

    I was most surprised that 29% of my traffic is reading my about page.

      @Lori Painter It is like a foreign language, isn’t it?! I love that 29% of your people are reading your about page. Pretty cool stuff. :)

    Nice tip Nathalie! 50% hit my home tab. I recently wrote two popular posts that were also a high percentage. It then drops down to 1’s and 2’s on various categories. Not sure what to make of this. Keep up the great vids and Happy New Year!

      @buckinspire Thanks Buck! It’s good to know your popular posts are getting some that clicking action. It just goes to confirm you’re doing good work. :)
