  1. Liz,I’m coming via Jules Taggart. Thanks for the 3 clues. I passed, but always good to check these things. I use WordPress, so I was pretty confident of the setup.

    Thank you, Liz, for these tips!

    I have a question for you:

    After I have installed the WordPress Google Analytics Plugin by Yoast and I have checked that in the status of my Google Analytics page says that my tracking ID is also installed, do I have to do something else in order to start viewing the statistics? I don’t know if I also have to copy and paste the code provided by Google Analytics in my website. If so, in which files should I paste it? As you may have noticed, I am giving my first steps in WordPress. :)

    Thank you!

    Fernando

    Regards,

      Hey Fernando – if you’ve put your tracking code in the Yoast plugin, you should be good to go! Google Analytics can take up to 24 hours to start showing data for you. Hope that helps!

        Thank you a lot, Liz!

        I’ve noticed that, in my previous comment, I put my name twice. I am not an egocentric person, believe me! ;)

    Hi Liz,

    So glad to have found you. I know the power of google analytics is there but I have had a hard time finding relatable resources to learn about it. I have just started to follow you and watched the above video and I passed on 2/3. Oursite/referral is the 2nd largest source. What does that mean, and how do I fix it? Do you have further resources on that? Thank you!

    Call me dumb, but I have installed google analytics and I find no way (on the site) or clue to to access data.
    Thank you for your help.
