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:

I cannot say enough about Graticle Design. I recently wrote a book called The Daily Challenge. It is a daily devotional about the ministry with orphans and widows we work with in a number of different countries. I was stumped as how to promote it or the cover style that would be on it. Shawn developed the magnificent cover that literally sells and promotes the book. I have had nothing but positive feed back on the cover and the content of the book. Thank you Shawn for your commitment to our work.

As a Marketing Consultant, my business depends on reliable freelancers that I can call on when needed. Having Shawn as my lead designer and developer for all of my client work allows me to deliver amazing work every time!

I have him do all the design for my own needs, even though I have numerous other designers I work with as I love his style and “can-do” attitude.

All of my clients love working with him after my projects are done, too.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a designer that has his skills and his responsiveness, which make him a big value to any team!
