Prerequisites: Affiliate Marketing 101 Course (free!)
Welcome to the last day of the Affiliate Website section of the Challenge! Today, we’re going to talk about monitoring your traffic, and what it’ll mean for your business!
Keep in mind, not all traffic is created equal. And since we’ve done our keyword research, we know exactly what most of the people coming to our website are looking for!
So it’s our job to give it to them so they click our affiliate links and buy something…
Let’s get started…
Get Into Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a wildly useful, free tool that Google puts out to give you insights into how your site is doing, what the most popular pages are, etc.
Like everything Google, all you have to do to sign up for an account is use your Google ID to sign in. After that, it’s just setting up your site to hook into their platform.
For that, you’ll need a WordPress plugin.
Getting Your Analytics Plugin
Google itself doesn’t make a WordPress plugin, but there are lots of developers who do. My favorite plugin to use is this Analytics Plugin by Yoast.
It’s easy to set up and integrates perfectly. You don’t every have to worry about it after it’s going.
After your plugin is set up, give Google Analytics about 24 hours to start computing data, and you’ll be able to see exactly how people are interacting with your site!
