I was recently in a Facebook group conversation and was asked if I could show other Etsy sellers how to set up Google Analytics for their Etsy shops. It’s a very simple process, so I figured why not? So, here are some screenshots that show you step by step how to do it. If you have any questions or you can’t get it to work, please feel free to contact me!

STEP 1: Of course, you’ll need to login to your Google Analytics account. From your dashboard, you’ll want to click on ‘Admin’ in the bottom left-hand corner.
