Especially when using websites for commercial purposes (e.g. as a sales funnel for affiliate products), it is important to regularly analyze the acceptance and visitor behavior in order to carry out corresponding optimizations or to check the use of certain traffic sources for their effectiveness. The most frequently used tool for this purpose is without doubt "Google Analytics", which can be used free of charge in the basic version.

the number of visitors to your site
the search terms used by visitors to find your website
the exact time visitors spend on your website
the content that visitors viewed on your site
the devices (desktop, smartphone ...) that your visitors use
the browsers your visitors are using
the sources of visitors, such as links, search engines, etc.
the demographic characteristics, such as language and location of the visitors
and much more.
