Today I attended a webinar on tracking traffic. Three (short videos) were presented on the use of Google Analytics. These videos provided instruction on setting up your Google Analytics account and placing the code (correctly) on your website. The code should go just above the body tag (opening or closing). My instructor indicated that before the closing body tag was the preferred placement.
This appears to be an easy and straight-forward process. One caveat was given. Be sure you obey all of Google’s rule or you may be shut down. Another important buy cialis online tip that was given was to place the code [Google] on all necessary pages—especially the home page and the download page. The video demonstrated how to obtain the code.
A future session in this training will cover interpretation and understanding the data that Google Analytics provides.

The effective use of tracking data enables the entrepreneur to identify factors that pull the most attention and resultant conversions. Another tracking program, Prosparent.com [http://prosperent.com/ref/400328] was discussed. A free version of this program is also available and there is not the threat [danger] of permanent shut down as exists with Google. Regardless of the tracking system used, it is important to track and compare results to facilitate intelligent decision-making. This is the main message of this blog. More on tracking and conversions at a later date.
