As a small business, there are several reasons you may want to give someone access to your Google Analytics account.

  • You may hire an SEO specialist to evaluate your website statistics.
  • You might want a staff person to manage your analytics without giving them the login to your Google account.
  • Your web designer needs to copy the Google Analytics tracking code from your account to install it on your website.
  • An advertising company, such as Hanapin Marketing, may need access to set up conversion tracking for ad campaigns.

Follow these simple steps to add a user or an administrator to your Google Analytics account while still maintaining the confidentiality of your Google login information.

  1. Log into Google Analytics using your Google login information: https://analytics.google.com.
  2. Click the wheel labeled “ADMIN” at the bottom of the sidebar menu.

  4. Once complete, click the “ADD” button.
