GOAL TRACKING IN GOOGLE ANALYTICS
Using Google Analytics for goal tracking is tremendously important for the following reasons:
- It tracks user data from all sources, not just dedicated ad platforms like Google AdWords and Facebook, and so it can put conversion data in the context of total conversions, giving you a better understanding of the client’s business.
- It tracks conversions using different methods than Google AdWords as well as Facebook and LinkedIn, which means that it can serve as a backup method in the event that your primary conversion tracking fails.
- All Google Analytics conversion data can be imported into AdWords, if necessary.
- Some data ONLY exists in Google Analytics, which means you increase amount of data you have to analyze, which ultimately helps you optimize your campaigns more effectively.
