It's not new that Google Analytic is to produce website owners with the information of their web traffic, where and who are they?
Google Analytics helps you analyze visitor traffic and paint a complete picture of your audience and their needs, wherever they are along the path to purchase.
Where customers are can be as critical as
who they are. Tools like Traffic Sources and Visitor Flow help you track the routes people take to reach you, and the devices they use to get there, so you can meet them where they are and improve the visitor experience. Do some types of people give you better results? You'll find out with tools like In-Page Analytics, which lets you make a visual assessment of how visitors interact with your pages. Learn what they're looking for and what they like, then tailor all your marketing activities — from your site to your apps to your ad campaigns — for maximum impact.
From the info above, you now understand what Google Analytic is and it's importance.
