Google Analytics: Goals

Ok, this is going to be a very short post, because I have no use in goals, and I don't think you would either. This post is going to be mostly a discussion about what goals are. Goals in Google analytics are not what you think they are, where you set a point that you want to reach in some area. Goals in Google Analytics are web pages that you designate that count how many people reached them. These are most useful for shopping carts, where you want to know how many people finished checking out. Since I don't have a shopping cart, and chances are you don't either, I'm not going to go into this category.

Well, we finished the basics of Google Analytics, next we'll be going into some advanced usage of it. If you've played around with it enough, you would probably already know some of these, but if you haven't, this would be a good opportunity to learn. See you next time!

I wish wordpress would allow Google Analytics.
