Analyze Your Web Traffic With Google Analytics: Video Tutorial

One of the most useful things you can do to better understand and improve the quality and quantity of web traffic on your site or blog, is to learn how to track, monitor, measure and make sense of the large quantity of data your web visitors leave on your server.

Comparing web traffic on via Google Analytics

Thanks to Google anyone can have easy, free and immediate access to one among the best and most powerful web traffic monitoring and analytics tool: Google Analytics. If you are not yet using it, I suggest you to give it a good try.

As a matter of fact, if you have no previous experience in web traffic monitoring and analysis, Google Analytics may actually scare due to the richness of its data sections and the good amount of new terms you are not going to be familiar with.

Even for more experienced professional web publishers Google Analytics may pose some challenges,
as some of the terms used may be different than what you have been used to elsewhere and getting to the hot zones of the traffic reports may not always be as easy as it should be.

To help you out on this front I have brought here for you two short video tutorials, produced by the official Goggle team and explaining clearly both the basics of analytics if you have never used it, as well as the fundamentals of how to go about doing some serious web data analysis on any site.

I must say, that even after many years of studying and using web traffic and monitoring tools I have learned a few new very useful things myself by looking at this two nicely produced videos.

Take a look yourself.
