Track Outbound Traffic From Your Blog with Google Analytics

One of the main goals for any Teachers Pay Teachers stores should be to track and increase eyeballs on your products. I have a blog over at that I used to talk about my classroom and how I use my own products in it. I knew that there had to be a way to track the traffic that I was sending from my blog to my TPT store and just figured out how to do that.

Here’s a quick video explaining the process. Note that you will have to have Google Analytics installed on your blog to view this data. If you don’t have it installed I would suggest that you should. This is one of my go-to tools for my analyzing how my blog is doing.

Would you be interested in a video showing how to view incoming traffic from Pinterest using Google Analytics? Specifically, which pins are sending you the most traffic.

Edit: You may have to add a piece of code from Google Analytics to get this working properly.  The following articles explain exactly how to do that.

    Thanks for the video! Yes, I would love to see a similar Pinterest video. I have Google Analytics on my website, but I don’t think it’s on my blog which is through Blogger. I’ll have to see if I can set up GA in Blogger.

    Thanks so much for this! I didn’t realize that I had to install a plugin in WordPress in addition to setting up the Google Analytics account. Very helpful!
