Let’s get started

If you aren’t already using Google for Nonprofits account I highly recommend you to sign up. We create about it a Tutorial: Setting account where you find all information and tips helpful in creating Google for Nonprofits account. With Nonprofits’ account, you will have access to many tools like Google Ads, G Suite, Maps, Youtube and many many more

To track traffic on your site you need a Google Analytics account. To sign up account you will need an email. If you don’t have a formal Google email you should create it. During setting the account you will get a code to paste in your website. You have to insert it in every header on your page. If you don’t know how to do it, it will be better if you ask a developer. The situation is easier when you have a site on WordPress. Then you just have to install a plugin that helps add the code to all your pages. I think that MonsterInsights is good and easy to use. 

When you do this you can start with Analytics and gather data from your sites and pages. It takes time when you socialize with all these statistics and information about your site. However, you should know and use a few simple statistics which help you in basic actions. While using the tool, it will be easier for you to estimate some decisions and think about the next campaigns.

Two categories of statistics

In Google Analytics is 2 main groups of statistics: quantitative and qualitative. The first one is answering the question: How many? And the next one is answering: How good? 

In quantitative statistics focus on 3 the most important metrics:

  1. User 

  2. Sessions

  3. Pageviews

Each session is one visit so it will be higher than a number of users. Each session can have multiple page views. It happens when a user starts with the main page, then visit your blog then something else etc.

In qualitative metric the most important are:

  1. Bounce Rate

  2. Exit Rate

  3. Average Session Duration
