How to Setup Google Analytics on WIX
Google Analytics is a FREE web analytics tool offered by Google to help you analyze your website traffic. It's really easy to install and the best part is, you can see how your customers interact with your website, where they come from (e.g. Local Search Results, Google Ads, Email Campaign). It's a great Tracking Tool all-around.
Google Analytics puts several lines of tracking code into your website. The code records the various activities of your users when they visit your website, along with the attributes (such as age, gender, interests) of those users. It then sends all that information to the GA (Google Analytics) server once the user exits your website.
Next, Google Analytics aggregates the data collected from your website in multiple ways, primarily by Four Levels:
User level (related to actions by each user)
Session level (each individual visit)
Page-view level (each individual page visited)
Event level (button clicks, video views, etc)
