Here are five simple steps…

Turn on BOT Filtering


If bot traffic is included in your Analytics metrics, you won’t get the most accurate view of how real users are interacting with your site.

Check your tagging


Are you sure Analytics is measuring all your site’s traffic? To be certain, check that you tagged your site properly.

Activate Google Signals


Gain a full understanding of customer behaviour by learning how customers engage across devices. When you activate Google signals, you can access four new reports about cross-device behaviour.

Review your insights and reports


Regularly checking your Analytics metrics, such as Behaviour and Conversion reports, helps you understand how your users are engaging with your site. You can make it easier to keep tabs on your account by setting up scheduled email reports.

Link your google ads accounts


If you have a Google Ads account, you can link this account with Analytics in order to use customer insights to show more effective ads.
