In this video tutorial lesson we will learn how to integrate and configure various Google tools for our WordPress ecommerce website.

We will start off by signing up for a Google account where among many other things you can create a public profile that can be searched via Google. Next we will add Google XML Sitemaps to our site. In our Google account we will tour the functionality Google Analytics. This is a very powerful tool that lets you see how your site visits are growing, where your visitors are coming from, what useful keywords are and what pages visitors are really interested in. We’ll then configure Analytics to work with our website. Finally, we will tour and add Google Webmaster Tools to our site.  These tools allow you to check and maintain your website’s health.  It will help you identify and solve any Google search problem you have before they get to serious.
