There are 4 main benefits of Google Analytics :

Traffic and conversion: Google Analytics is basically an endless source of parameters, comparisons, insights, and combinations to discover how your pages perform. To make your marketing campaigns more effective, you need to learn how to use it effectively. At first, the number of options might look terrifying but it’s crucial to embrace them. After all, this is how you can check, for example, which posts convert the most, what the bounce rate at the registration form is or how your website’s SEO performs.

Social media performance: It collects all online mentions of predefined keywords from social media, blogs, websites, news sites, discussion forums and other places. It means that, after choosing the right keywords, you can use the tool to monitor your reputation, social media, competition, customers seeking assistance, find potential customers and more.

User behavior: Using Heap, you can discover all leaks in the funnel just like we discovered our registration form sucked. You establish events, create funnels and analyze visitor behavior. The possibilities are basically endless and they let you understand how your visitors behave.

Key progress indicators: Search engine optimization is one of the most fundamental parts of online presence. SEO should always be at the back of your mind while creating any content for your sites. In order to develop a good SEO reputation and become discoverable in search engine, you need to create a list of keywords relevant to your business you want to rank for.
