2 Google Analytics Demo Account
Wondering what a sort of information you might get through Google Analytics? But you want real life data and not some enthusiasts view on it? Or are you convinced already but you just want to have an example to look at? Need to convince someone else in your organisation? Look no further.
Google finally enabled public access to the Google Merchandise Store’s Analytics account so that everyone can see, smell and play with the sort of data that a proper Google Analytics setup enables. You will get into the Google Analytics Demo Account in a few simple steps explained here.
Google Analytics Account Structure
First, once you have access, observe the way the account is structured. There is one Account (Demo Account BETA), one Property (the Merchandise Store) and then three Views (Master, Test and Raw Data).This is similar to my set up and allows for a testing of important filters in the test view and a back up in case something goes wrong in the Raw Data view.
