Google Analytics allows you to track and understand your customer's behavior, what they're looking for, and whether your business is addressing their needs. Its allows you to use its technology to dissect and study your online business so you can cater well to your customers.


With this tutorial you will learn how to setup your Google Analytics account, so you can get vital traffic reports right on your store builder dashboard. 


This integration is probably the most complex of all, but it's well worth it. As you do the integration, we just want to let you know that each Google Analytics account can have up to 50 properties. Each property is basically a store.


So a single Google Account integration will allow you to easily get data on your store builder dashboard for up to 50 stores and that's why this integration is well worth it.


Phase 2 of the video and steps shows you how to enable ENHANCED eCommerce tracking for your Google Analytics account. You can learn more about that here.


Enabling enhanced eCommerce in your Google Analytics account will allow the platform to report the following vital data:

  • Product clicks
  • View of product details
  • Adding products to a shopping cart
  • Remove products from a shopping cart
  • Tracking checkout process
