If you don’t grow your website, sooner or later competition will run you out of business.

One of the best ways to grow your website is by analyzing it. When you know more about your site like how many visitors you’ve got in a month, the sources of those visitors, what’s your bounce rate, and so many other important information, then you can plan and execute the right strategy based on the data collected.

Analyzing websites requires a good analytics tool, and there are only a few who can match Google Analytics. Launched in 2005, Google Analytics has since transformed into one of the most-used analytics software in the world. 

What sets Google Analytics apart from its competitors is the simple fact that with all of its awesome features, it’s still totally free to use. Not many web analytics tools, if any, can say the same.
