  1. what i am getting is , Google analytics is a just a medium of getting the number of viewer or visitor on the page of the website . so, is it related with the Linkedin which tells about the the number of viewer on the profile or is it related with the number of user who is online on facebook ?? or is it something else???
    Please clear it.

  2. Thanks Siddharth for sharing your views…. Google Analytics is a powerful tool provided by Google to help you analyse your website… It is not directly related to Linkedin, Facebook or any other social media platform for that matter, however, Google Analytics helps you identify which of the social media campaigns are sending the maximum number of users to your website… That way, you can allocate your advertising budgets to these platforms accordingly….

    Similarly, Google Analytics provides you with other useful analytical information for your website on basis of user behaviour. This information, if adhered to in the correct manner can help your website improve it’s ranking and overall performance.

    Hope the above information solves your query. Feel free to comment in case of any other doubts.

    Cheers
