What is Google Analytics?
That should be the first question many might ask, “what is google analytics “. Well according to Wikipedia, it defined Google analytics as a free-premium web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic, currently as a platform inside the Google Marketing Platform brand.
Google Analytics is now the most widely used web analytics service on the web.
Yeah! I remembered when I said it is a free-premium web analytics service, this actually means that the tool has all you need as a blogger and all you need in order to get the best and most out of your site which requires it to be paid for but Google actually made it free to all bloggers and website owners.
Yes, it is free and so don’t pay anyone trying to trick you into buying a Google analytics account which is very impossible to sell.
