    I have just finished reading an interesting and informatative hub by Glen Stok. Well, I decided to follow the steps outlined about Google Analytics. I did step one.However, when I got to step 2 I found tracker.

    Does this mean I did not set up an account as an affiliate; or am I missing something in the hub? Based on the comments, it seems as if other hubbers have questions too. Please explain what I have neglected to do because I cannot go to step 3 in Glenn Stok's hub and find Google Analytics.Thanks.

      aoiffe379, I just found this post you made a while back. I am not sure which of my hubs you are referring to as I never wrote in detail about Google Analytics yet. I have a hub on Google Adsense and a few of my HP Progress Reports where I made brief mentions of Google Analytics, but nothing with steps to open an Analytics account. I would like to help you in case you still didn't figure it out. So please tell me which hub of mine you are referring to so I can post a better response here for you. Or if you want to shoot me a question, you can email me via my profile and I'll be glad to help.

      Another straight forward answer,
      There should be headline on main forum page
      """ Go to help section, If you were a beginner"""

      So, that Relache workload will decrease.

        Google analytics is not an affiliate program. It gives you info on your visitors,

        Like everything from Google it is incomprehensible if you read about it on Google. It's best to find a site that gives an outline of what it does eg

        Tells you visitor numbers
        where they come from
        how long they spend on your page
        what keywords they use to get to your page.

        Best thing is to sign up and play with it. It helps you understand what you are doing right or wrong in your hubs.

    Yeah check out the link above, Google Analytics is a great free piece fo software which will let you track everything from adsense revenue to how long people stay on your website.

    The good thing about Google Analytics is that ti can be as simple or as complicate as you want to make it.  So if you are a beginner you will be able to find the basic information you need, however when you start to track traffic through sites from different sources, Analytics has the power to help you!
