When we start working with a new client we always like to get access to their Google Analytics account so as we can see things like how visitors their website gets and what percentage of them are converting into customers or prospects.
Often we find that there are no goals configured in Analytics and so then we have to create these – and for that, we need to have admin access to the account.
A lot of the time we find that clients (and sometimes their web designers!) are unsure how to give someone access to Analytics. So if you need to give us (or anyone else) administrator access to your Google Analytics account, you might find this step-by-step guide useful:
- First you need to go to http://www.google.co.uk/analytics and sign in.
- Click the Admin button in the top right hand corner of the page.
- From the list of available accounts (there may only be one anyway) click on the one you want to grant access to and you’ll then see something like this:
- Click the Users tab and then click the New User button.
- Enter the email address that was given to you by the person that needs the admin access to your account.
- Select Administrator as the role.
- Tick the box that says “Notify this user by email”. The screen should now look like this:
- Click the Add User button at the bottom of the page.
That’s it – job done!
