The next thing we’re going to do here is set up a Gmail account and configure Google Analytics. I’m going to set up the Gmail account here and choose explore. I just type Gmail in Chrome to search for it. Most of you probably already have a Gmail account and you need that account in order to make this whole thing work with Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools.
We’ll go there and create an account. I’ll use this email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Then we’ve got this captcha here to deal with, “and gjedyu”, I’m going to agree to the terms of the service and hit “Next Step”.
There we go, it was as easy as that. Now I’ve got a Gmail account now, choose “Next Step” and continue on to Gmail. That’s all there is to it, there’s nothing else necessary in order to set this up.
Next we’re going to configure Analytics and I’ll show you how you can use it.
