The first thing you need to do is to sign up for Google Analytics. This is so easy to do if you already have a Gmail account. If you now have a Gmail account. You can now sign up for Google Analytics to get started.

 



After you have completed the sign up process, you will be provided with a code that you need to add to your website so that analysis of your website can start in earnest.

 



One thing is that if you are using a self-hosted WordPress site, you will not need to place any code. I will recommend that you search for ‘Google Analyticator’ in your plugin library. What you will just need when using this medium is to get an API that you are going to enter in order to authenticate the Plugin to analyse your website.
