The most effective method to introduce Google Analytics
To begin with, you require a Google Analytics account. In the event that you have an essential Google account that you use for different administrations like Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google+, or YouTube, then you ought to set up your Google Analytics utilizing that Google account.
