    Post Tracking Your Traffic

    We all love traffic coming to our website. The more the merrier in most cases.

    However, as a marketer, that isn't the case. Marketers want targeted traffic and they want to know where it is coming from. Not knowing where your traffic is coming from means you don't know which traffic generation methods are working.

    The majority of marketers make no effort to track their traffic and are grateful for any visitors to their website.

    If you are paying for advertising and not tracking your traffic you are throwing money away! You have to know which adverts are working and which are not. This way you can do more advertising that is earning you money and less of that which isn't.

    Tracking your traffic doesn't need to be complex and can be done very easily. You can invest in scripts and services that will track your website traffic for you. These vary from the cheap to the expensive, the good and to the brilliant.

    You don't need to have a script or service to track your traffic, but it can often make it much easier for you.

    A simple traffic tracking method is to use Google Analytics. This is a free to sign up service that many marketers are using. The good thing about it is that it offers in depth stats and can track almost anything. The downside of it that it offers in depth stats and can track almost anything!

    The complexity of it is a good and a bad thing because you can find out so much about your website that it will initially confuse you. However, once you have spent some time analysing the results it will prove very useful.

    Firstly you have to add the code to your website. This code is unique for each of your websites and needs to be inserted at the bottom of each page in your website just before the closing body tag.

    Once it is reporting data, you need to drive a decent amount of visitors to your site to get some good results.

    Analytics will report on all activity on your website and even go as far to overlay where people are clicking to help you understand the activity on your website. You can link your analytics account with your Adsense and Adwords accounts to further help you understand how well they are working for you.

    One of the biggest benefits of Analytics is that it can provide goal tracking to track sales and sign ups to lists. It can be a bit tricky to get working behind scripts and membership sites, but is worth using.

    The big appeal to most marketers is the fact that it has a lot of features, more than many scripts and is completely free. Of course, Google get to understand exactly what happens on your website, but that is a small trade off for such in depth analytics.

    Using Google Analytics will give you a good understanding of where your traffic is coming from and what it is doing on your site. Through this you can improve your conversion rate, and in turn, your profits.

    Tracking website traffic is a key aspect in online marketing and a very important ingredient to success in your online home business. Internet businesses survive on traffic (people who visit your website) and traffic generation is what every success-conscious marketer does, from time to time, to grow their businesses. But do you know what your visitors do when they are on your website? Do you know how they behave on your site?

    Tracking your blog traffic could be the best thing you ever did if you aim to rank well in search engines. There is one simple reason for me to say this. That reason is “link clusters”. Courtney Tuttle wrote a great post on link clusters and what they can do for your rankings the other day.

    There is no point in repeating what he said, since he explains it all too well already. But I wanted to touch on this and show you how to take a step back from what he recommends you do and actually track your traffic with ease.

    Finally, if you really want to benefit from your online business, it's important to have a tracking system that enables you to track your website traffic as well as your marketing and advertising campaigns. Traffic generation is what every online marketer targets and it's therefore important to track your website traffic to work on your online business gainfully.

    For tracking site's visitors I must say Google analytic's is simply just amazing and it does really presents quality and actual results . But let me just say as other might differ from me but at some stages it does really shows different results like as compared to MOZ.
