The Create Google Analytics Dashboard tool allows you to display your Google Analytics statistics for your website, right on your Create Dashboard! Available on each package, this tool allows you to see all the latest hits, page views and other important visitor information about your website, at a glance, right in your Create account.

You will be able to see:

  • Visits and page views
  • Top Referrers
  • Top Keywords
  • Top Pages
  • Visitor Location

Furthermore, linking your Google account to your Create account will automatically add tracking code to your shop checkout. This will mean that you can set up some specific goals and funnels in  your Google Analytics to track your sales. You can read more about setting up Goals in Google Analytics on Google's help pages here.

If you have not done so already, before you start, you will need to link your Create website to your Google Analytics account. You can read how to set up Google Analytics to track your Create website here.
