The first step in improving your website’s conversion rate is to perform a Google Analytics audit. This involves taking a look at your Google Analytics account and identifying issues with the way you’re tracking and collecting data.
Why you need to audit your Google Analytics account
You need accurate data to be able to make data-driven decisions. Auditing your Google Analytics account ensures that:
- You can trust your data because it’s being tracked properly
- You’re tracking data that can help you improve your business
Here are three warning signs that you should perform a Google Analytics audit as soon as possible:
- Google Analytics shows that your website has a very low bounce rate (less than 20%)
- Transactional data doesn’t align with actual business performance
- There’s misalignment between Google Analytics reports and third-party systems such as Facebook Ads
All of the above points to issues with tracking data in Google Analytics. Auditing your Google Analytics account will help you uncover all of the issues that are holding you back from collecting accurate data and allow you to make the right decisions for your business.
