After reading about Google’s new Analytics tool yesterday, I signed up for an account and got spiralbound.net and twistedstitches.net logging to it. I quickly logged in this morning, all excited to see my reports (I’m pathetic, I know) but there were no reports to be seen. DAMN! Anyhow, I figured out that I have to have a “Conversion Goal” in order for it to start tracking statistics. I’ll RTFM next time.
“Conversion Goals” are really meant to track how what people got to what pages, but they can be as simple a my “Someone is at my site” goal which is a simple count of anyone on any spiralbound.net page. I also set up a conversion goal to track comments. We’ll see how it all plays out. According to Google, it will take 12 hours before I see anything.
