Adding a User to your Google Analytics Account

Maintaining a website is often not a “one man show”. There’s development and design work to be done, plus content creation and updates for your pages and products, business blogging, responding to comments, and basic site maintenance. If you want to track how well your site is performing for you and where your website traffic is coming from, you’ve likely set up and installed Google Analytics at some point.

Google Analytics is a very powerful tool. So powerful, in fact, that it is more than what many small business owners can handle (data overload is a real thing!). If you have an employee that you want to help analyze your website stats, or if you hire out help to a consultant to aid you in understanding what all the numbers mean, adding those individuals as a new user on your Google Analytics account is often preferable to handing them your sign-in information. Especially if your Google Analytics sign-in info is the same as your email account.
