If you advertise your escort business on directories, classifieds, or review sites, you probably want to know how well your ads are working — especially if you’re paying for them. If you suddenly get a spike in booking requests after posting an ad, it’s probably a safe bet that your ad was a success. But if you’re listing in multiple places, it can be hard to tell where your clients are coming from, and which sites are really worth your money. And if you’re not getting any new requests, you may want to know how many admirers are just looking, but not booking once they reach your website.
The easiest way to answer all of these questions is to install analytics tracking on your website. It may sound scary, but we’ve actually made it pretty easy for you to link your escort website to Google Analytics so you can decode the traffic to your site. Here’s how:
Go to google.com/analytics, click on the blue Sign In button in the right-hand corner, and select Google Analytics from the dropdown menu. You’ll then need to enter in your Google account info. If you don’t have a Google account, you can create one quickly. (This is different than a gmail account. You can use your existing email to create a Google account, which you’ll then use to access your website’s data.) Then click on the Sign Up button.
You’ll then need to enter in a few details to get your account set up:
You’ll need to enter in a name for your account (like Stella’s website), a name for your actual website (again, something like Stella’s website would work), and your website URL. You’ll then need to select your timezone so your analytics matches the time zone you’re in. Then click the Get Tracking ID button. Copy and paste the tracking code you see on the next screen (it will look something like UA-234221-12).
Now, log into your Escort Design website and go to your Analytics tab under Dashboard. There you’ll see a field for your Google Analytics Tracking Code. Paste the code you copied into this field, then click the Update button.
You’re all set up! Now when you go back to Google Analytics, you’ll be able to see all the traffic that comes through your website. Note: It can take a few hours for any of your traffic to register in your account, so your graph will look like this at first. Be patient and check back the next day to see some results.
Have fun poking around your stats and seeing where your traffic is coming from. And stay tuned for future posts on how to get the most out of your analytics.
