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 worked with Shawn on my company’s website and he was very helpful and generous with his knowledge and time. He was responsive when I had issues or questions. The input he provided on concepts and trends that make some sites better or more visible than others was great as well. I would feel good referring Graticle to others and was pleased with the services they provided to us.
