Guide for Google Analytics

Ok, I've recently figured out how to use google analytics as a really powerful web site monitoring tool. And it's also really fun to explore and find out things about your web site. I use it to track my blog stats (but unfortunately, I can't watch you through it). I'll tell you how to make a profile and set up a web site in it. It's actually quite easy.

The first thing you need to do is make a Google account. If you use gmail, you already have one. If you don't, all you have to do is sign up. Once you do that, sign in. After that, you have to add the web site you want to monitor.

To set up the web site you want to monitor, look at the Web site profiles area and select "Add Website Profile" (in the top right corner). Right now, you want to add a Profile for a NEW domain, so stay with the default. Next, put the address of the web site you want to monitor (for me, it was "scienceonlooker.blogspot.com". Country and time zone I'm pretty sure you can figure out.

Next you have to install the tracker code. Since I have a blog, all I have to do is add it to my template, since the template is used for every page. However, if you're adding it to an actual web site, you need to add it to every page you want to track. If you want to track your web site, this step is essential, no matter how you want to do it.

And there, you have your web site set up for monitoring. I'll soon post about how to actually use the interface to find really cool stuff.
