Get started with Analytics



To start collecting basic data from a website:

  1. Create or sign in to your Analytics account:
    • Go to google.com/analytics
    • Do one of the following:
      • To create an account, click Start for free.
      • To sign in to your account, Click Sign in to Analytics.

  2. Set up a property in your Analytics account. A property represents your website or app, and is the collection point in Analytics for the data from your site or app.

  3. Set up a reporting view in your property. Views let you create filtered perspectives of your data; for example, all data except from your company’s internal IP addresses, or all data associated with a specific sales region.

  4. Follow the instructions to add the tracking code to your website so you can collect data in your Analytics property.

 

Next steps
