Why Have A Blog: Easy Analytics

Once you’ve accepted the importance of analytics, the question becomes how best to begin gathering data.

Fundamentally this comes down to installing tracking code on every page of your site. Yes, every single page.

This means if you haven’t installed tracking code yet, or you want to change what you’ve got, you’ll probably need to go into every page, one by one, change the code, and hope you don’t miss anything.

This allows you to move quickly beyond the technical aspects of setting up your site, and focus on creating content and using the data you collect to improve your business.
