View Google Analytics As You Browse Your Website

February 06, 2015    Reading Time: < 1 Minute

I use Google Analytics every week to track statistics on a variety of websites that I manage, including this one.

Now, I’m fairly fluent with the interface of Google Analytics, but it’s still not as intuitive as it could be. You’re completely disconnected with the visual aspect of your website and staring at numbers. It can be hard to stay awake.

The Page Analytics extension for Google Chrome changes that.

This extension allows you to see how your customers are interacting with your website visually.

Once you have the extension installed, you can load up your website and view your statistics as you browse.

Here’s an example:

#2) Google Chrome. If you don’t have the Chrome browser, please do yourself and your internet experience a favor by downloading it here.

#3) Last, you’ll need the Page Analytics Extension which you can download from the Chrome Web Store.

Did I mention everything above is free?

Enjoy a more wakeful Google Analytics experience.

Shawn designed my business website and business cards with the vision I wanted and he did an outstanding turning it into exactly what I wanted.

He made himself very available and answered all of my questions I had about content and design, and instructed me with very easy steps to add content and pictures to my site when he was finished.

I would recommend him to anyone!

Great service and response time. We set up an appointment for some company branding and I was asked some very specific questions and we went over some images, they created a perfect design and a quick turnaround. Graticle is definitely who we will use for all of our design and I will recommend them to anyone needing their service.
