Google Analytics is the #1 resource for analyzing your website’s traffic.
We started using Google Analytics in 2011, so we could evaluate our marketing strategy. Below is some information that we are currently using to help increase revenue and traffic to our site. We hope you can use it to help your business too!
We will update the information each month.
1. Number of visits: This is very important because a company needs to know how many people are actually visiting a website. We are pleased with our progress attracting visitors to our site and hope to make even more improvements in the upcoming months.
2015 (January – March) 115,000 page views.
2014: 369,370 Visits
2013: 163,267 Visits
2012: 32,589 Visits
2011 (October – December): 1,351 visits
Analysis: We are improving with organic searches and we are increasing traffic each year. The value of our pages allows us to create sponsor opportunities for companies looking to connect with our targeted audience.
2. Top Page Views: A company also wants to know what people are doing on a site. What are the most popular pages? With this information, a company can analyze what makes pages popular, determine how people are arriving at these pages, adjust web design, and evaluate marketing based on the results.
Our Top Pages are Find a Tutor and Become A Tutor. Below is the list of the next 10 most viewed pages for 2014. There are several pages that are looking for a sponsor.

3. Location of Visitors: We are a national directory of teachers who tutor. We are looking to expand nationally, but right now we are targeting Massachusetts (@mytowntutorsMA). Google Analytics provides a great map with darker colors representing the most visits. There also is a numerical listing of the visits. Our top 3 states are Massachusetts, California, and New York.
We can even analyze more closely by clicking on the state to see what towns are visiting the most.
4. Real time: This is a very helpful tool that allows a company to see the current page views, locations, traffic sources, content, events, and conversions. This will be very helpful on March 14 as we analyze our Pi Day Marketing Campaign which includes:
