So, ugh, what is Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is an analytics tool from Google which can be used to obtain detailed reporting of visitors to your portfolio. It’s capable of reporting on a wide variety of data. For example, Where are the visitors located? How did they find your site? etc.
Sounds good! How do I set it up?
If you don’t have one already you’ll need to sign up for a Google Analytics account. Go to the Google Analytics home page and create one then create a new profile for your Crevado Portfolio:
Enter the address of your crevado portfolio (in the case of this case, demo.crevado.com) and ensure you pick http:// from the dropdown:
Once you’ve created a profile for your portfolio you should take note of the tracking number:
Note: The above tracking number is just an example- you must use your own tracking number created for your own Portfolio or it won’t gather any statistics!
Once you have a tracking ID, jump back to Crevado Admin and click on the Settings button:
Scroll down and click on the Google Analytics section:
Then click on it and enter your Analytics Tracking ID:
Note: The insertion of tracking code from Google is NOT necessary, Crevado inserts the necessary code automatically once you enter your Analytics ID - pretty neat, huh?
Finally, click Save. Congratulations! You’ve just enabled visitor tracking and from now on visits to your portfolio will be tracked and reported on in Google Analytics.
