When users visit their site, how do you know which pages they are clicking on? In this short tutorial, I will show you how to find this out, visually, using Google Analytics. If you already have a Google Analytics account setup, it only takes a few minutes. If not, it may take a bit longer, but in terms of actual time spent, is probably still less than fifteen minutes.
Step 1: Install Google Analytics for Your Website
Step 2: Use Google Analytic’s Site Overlay Feature
There’s really not much work, here. Just follow the steps below to get to the site overlay feature. You can see a screenshot below.
1) Go to Google Analytics (analytics.google.com)
2) Click on you site from the list.
3) Click “View Report” next to your site.
4) Click “Content” on the left side
5) Click “In-Page Analytics” on the left under “Content”
6) And that’s it. You should get something like the image below (click on it to see a larger size). Be sure to select the date range that you want to analyze.
