Google Analytics has grown to become a powerful web analytics tool for traffic measurement, audience segmentation, e-Commerce tracking, and mobile analytics. Millions of businesses, large and small, rely on Google Analytics to understand customer preferences and create better experiences for them.

  2. Click the Admin Gear in Bottom Left of screen
