Tracking Visitors to Your Crevado Portfolio Using Google Analytics

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, 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.
