How to Track your Google Analytics in 2020

Are you ready to start tracking your google analytics on your Squarespace or Showit site but have no idea where to start?

I break down the important metrics to track so you can easily make sense of it all and start CONVERTING!

*Update*

Is this still applicable in 2021? YES! I still do the same tactics… and I still have a bounce rate that is embarrassingly high… so what steps am I taking to fix this?

  1. Adding a Call To Action/ freebie at the bottom of every blog
  2. Adding a sidebar on the blog with helpful Categories where they can find blogs about that topic (like Showit or Squarespace)
  3. Linking related blog posts in each blog post I write
  4. Session duration is low

What’s encouraging from a year ago…

  1. I have doubled my users and sessions!
  2. Monday is still super popular for me so I will continue sending out emails on that day!
  3. There are a lot of page views for my website in a day service I started a year ago! It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment decision to create when the Pandemic hit and has brought in more than 10k in revenue to my business!
  4. My organic search has SKYROCKETED! Over 100 more people. Just goes to show you that blogging is worth it!

What I found interesting

  1. THIS BLOG IS SO POPULAR! It kind of drives me crazy because I don’t work with Shopify (other than Shopify Lite with Showit), but it just goes to show you people are as frustrated as I was with figuring this out!
  2. I still have primarily a LOT of new visitors coming to my site which I love!
  3. Instagram used to be my highest almost always, but Facebook has (shockingly) surpassed it. Considering I invest almost no time in Facebook, I have no idea why this is the case. YouTube is my second highest and Instagram is my 3rd. So what does this tell me? I need to be investing a heck of a lot more time in my YouTube videos and Facebook group Showit & Squarespace for Creatives!
  4. When it comes to referral, my best source is Paige Brunton’s blog where she featured me! This shows I should spend more time pitching myself to bloggers that have good SEO.
