Analytics & Tracking

 

Google Analytics

Free – Website: https://analytics.google.com

A must-have for any website. It tells you everything you need to know about your blog. Where your traffic is coming from, what type of traffic, which page is performing the best, which country they’re browsing from, the device they’re using, etc.

Google Search Console

Free – Website: https://search.google.com

Similar to Google analytics, but as the name implies, it’s more for search. It’s a free tool that helps you monitor how Google treats your site. It tells what keywords you are ranking for, where they rank in the search results and which pages of yours show up when people search those terms.

Quick Tip: Go to the “Performance” tab on the right. Scroll down and click on the filter icon and filter for a position greater than #10—afterward, sort by impressions. You’ll be able to find queries that are ranking on page two of Google and still receiving tons of impressions, which you can optimize for quick wins. Another easy way you can do this is through here: https://codingisforlosers.com/quick-win-keyword-finder/
