2. Google Analytics
Google Analytics is the greatest tool around for analyzing how people use your website. Once you sign up, information about visitors will start pouring in. You will see how people get to your website, what computer they are using, which pages they like to see, how long they stay, and much, much more! Learning how others use your site will give you insight into what you need to fix, and what you need to promote. And did we mention it’s free?
3. Google Webmaster Tools
This is Google Analytics’ more technical brother. Webmaster Tools is great for learning about more technical issues with your website such as the code, sitemaps and links. It also allows you to see the exact search terms people put in Google to find your website. We highly recommend linking Webmaster Tools and Analytics together to share information, which will give you even more info on visitors to your site!
