Google Analytics Integration

Google Analytics is an industry leader in web analytics. It gives you the required tools to better analyze your website as well as your customers’ activities. Through intuitive dashboards and reports, Google Analytics gives you relevant insights that can help you improve your product as well as customer experience.

What You Can Do with Google Analytics

  • Track website activity such as session duration, your site visitors’ bounce rate, and much more
  • Know your website traffic sources
  • Identify poorly performing web pages through effective funnel visualization
  • Integrate with Google Ads, where you can track and analyze online campaigns
  • Integrate with Google Tag Manager to track events and goals for conversion optimization

Integrating Google Analytics with your website on its own can be quite challenging. For collecting in-depth information about your website such as visitor activity, user attributes as well as the relevant eCommerce information, you will need to install custom webhooks into your website. In addition, you will need to know the Google Analytics API methods and data formats. Similarly for mobile tracking, any custom or eCommerce events need to be tracked manually, which can be quite a hassle.
