Google Analytics is one of the finest services coming out from Google for those who are actively managing websites. Magento Analytics allows them to pay more attention towards important ratios, like tracking and conversions, of their websites.

There are many Magento store owners who are not properly aware of the tracking related services offered by Google Analytics. It offers in-depth insights on website traffic, visitor segmentation, demographics visualization, and goal related tracking. All these services give a new dimension to your ecommerce business.

Magento Google Analytics gives its users a wide range of services like tracking data and managing visitors records and sign up on the website. However, tracking the data and then collecting it, simultaneously, for an ecommerce website is a complex task to do. In order to make it simpler for you to track and collect ecommerce data for your Magento store, follow these steps:

If you are using an older version of Magento, then you might face problems in tracking the data.
