Back to Basics: New Getting Started Guide for Google Analytics

Monday, March 09, 2009 | 3:54 PM


Hot off the presses, the Google Analytics Help Center has published yet another informative online resource - the Getting Started Guide. The guide's purpose is to walk new users through the basics of having an Analytics account, and it also picks out must-know definitions like goals and funnels. It also has a diagram of the reporting interface so first time users can follow along and learn about the various reports and features. Finally, the guide also provides practical set-up and implementation instructions in the 'Installing Analytics' section, as well as tips on how to set up your reports and interpret the data once you start receiving it. 

If the Getting Started Guide is too basic and you're ready to get started on more advanced code customizations or look through videos on tips and tricks, you can browse through the 'Other resources' section at the end of the guide.

We hope you find the guide useful - feel free to bookmark the Getting Started Guide for your own reference or share it with others!
