Deep integration between CONJ and Google Analytics enables you to get detailed insights into your shop’s traffic and eCommerce events so that you can improve your sales funnel and drive more revenue.
Google Analytics is a free website tracking service offered by Google Inc. that reports website traffic, conversions, user behavior, and more. In addition to that this service can show you how much traffic your website receives, where that traffic is coming from, and how visitors interact with your site once they arrive.
Google Analytics includes advanced features to complement your shop stats. Funnel reports help you track the path visitors take through your site, and goal conversion lets you measure how visitors complete specific tasks (such as reaching a product page or contact form). In case you are already using Google Analytics with other projects, you’ll be able to see all your stats in one place.
