Feedback is always a good thing. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you are doing; you will always want to hear that you’re good at something or even be constructively criticized. This can refer to your love life, friendships, or job, which are all important aspects of our lives that we want to improve. But today, we will be talking about feedback regarding your website. Why? Well, because the only person who can fully see and improve the downsides of your website is you.

To keep it simple, web analytics is all the data regarding your website. It can be anything from how many page views you got to how well you sold your products. The options are endless with web analysis tools. The information that these tools give us is amazing. Through it, you can exactly see where the problems are on your website (i.e., checkout button not working, slow loading times, etc.), where most of your customers or visitors are from, etc.

You can then use this data to your advantage. For example, when you see that most of your customers are from a particular country. The next thing you would do is advertising; in other words, you would target people from that country even more because you know that is profitable.

Once you learn how to use these tools and understand the different types of metrics, everything else will fall into its place.

With that said, now, we will present to you the top 5 web analysis tools you can use to monitor and improve your website!

Many people think that its dashboard can be kind of hard to maneuver, but some people enjoy it.

One of its more popular features is called “row evolution”, which lets you put your cursor over any event, link, etc., and see detailed data history from specific periods. You can also put these rows side by side and compare them to see why some aspects of your website are doing better or worse than others. Doing this gives you insight into what to fix or optimize on your website so it can function better.
