What Is Google Analytic?
Google Analytics is a freemium web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google started the service in November 2005 after acquiring Urchin. Google Analytics is now the most widely used web analytics service on the Internet.

Compact with AdWords, users can now review online campaigns by tracking landing page quality and conversions (goals). Goals might include sales, lead generation, viewing a specific page, or downloading a particular file.
Google Analytics’ approach is to show high-level, dashboard-type data for the casual user, and more in-depth data further into the report set.

It also provides more advanced features, including custom visitor segmentation.
