Google Analytics

Overall Satisfaction with Google Analytics

While Analytics has a laundry list of really great features involving real-time audience tracking, behavior factors on website visitors, and various event tracking services, I primarily utilize it to find origination points in our client pipelines. It is important that we are able to tell if a recent blog entry is doing exceptionally well, or if a referral source is seeing a traffic spike. Analytics, like most of the offerings in the Google ecosystem, is extremely easy to pick up and use but has a ton of complexity under the hood.
  • Tracks clients along digital pipelines well.
  • Follows client behavior on your website effectively.
  • Excellent support for multiple websites.
  • There are some redundant systems in place.
  • Tracking isn't always consistent, but it's more accurate than competitors.
  • Google Analytics allows me to track customer behavior so I can double down on what works.
Realistically, Google Analytics is in a class of its own. While there are competitors in the space, none are really worth mentioning in comparison. Analytics has every single tool a webmaster could need to effectively track website visitors' behaviors and origination, wrapped up in an extremely easy to use interface.
Google Analytics handles every level of the user experience on your website exceptionally well. It is easy to jump quickly between a macro level view of every visitor currently active on your website, to a micro level view of a user on a specific page from a specific source. I genuinely have no complaints when it comes to Analytics doing the specific job it is built for.
