Installing WordPress is just the start of any Web publisher or developer's journey. Knowing how your visitors' experience your website and/or blog assists you in making changes that can have a positive impact on your search results, keeping your visitors on your site longer, and converting more customers. And, there's no better (and free) tool for this than Google Analytics.

In this meetup, we're going to cover the basics of Google Analytics (GA). (Yes, this is for GA *beginners* only.) This includes:
- How GA works, setting up GA, and getting around GA's dashboard
- How to set up views with filters, understanding the basics of reports
- Setting Goals for conversion tracking in GA

We're happy to answer questions, but there won't be time to stop the class for technical issues. We may be able to help you at the end.
