Set-up Google Analytics for your kvCORE website

Adding Google Analytics to your kvCORE site is super simple. And thanks to google this is free and easy!

What is Google Analytics?

It is a free (for anyone with a google account) tool to track website performance and customer insights. I use it for both my kvCORE website and my custom WordPress site. It holds great information like: How are people finding the site, organic search? paid search? direct? etc. or Which page is getting the most traffic? How much traffic do I have since I started an ad? So much data is contained in google analytics!
