To set up your Google Analytics account go to google.com/analytics/ and register your account.
If you don't have any accounts connected with your Google Account you will see this screen:
To create Google Analytics account fill in the form with:
- Account Name. (Note: One Account may have a few tracking IDs so it can be one Account per one organization/company with many websites.)
In the next step create your unique tracking ID:
- Insert Website Name, Website URL and Reporting Time Zone. (Note: Correct time zone is crucially important - in the reports your data will be divided by date using this value).
