Geeky Discovery - Web Analytics (Google Analytics)


When I was working on my Etsy shop yesterday night, I found this new feature called Web Analytics under my Shop Setup. Being the curious me, I decided to check it out.. I STUCK GOLD! I was directed to Google Analytics which I signed up and add the tracking id to my shop.. I was trying work out all the features and goals stuff.... but nothing appeared on the reports..

The next day (which is this morning), I logged on to my Google Analytics again to see if there were any information on my reports and there were!! This is what I found out the following and more! I was really happy that I stumble upon this feature and it's ABSOLUTELY FREE. I hope they don start charging once this feature gets more popular.
  • 31 unique visitors to my shop that day
  • Most of them are from the States
  • 4.32 average pages viewed in my shop
  • Most of them were from direct traffic

I strongly encourage everyone to check it out!

You can check out the videos on Youtube on how to use this feature.
