1. Not Installing Google Analytics The biggest mistake is not installing it in the first place. It’s free so why not use it. If you have a comparable piece of software that’s fine, though odds are it’s alot more expensive. If you have any suggestions as alternatives leave a comment at the bottom. 2. Not Monitoring the Reports Another mistake is having it installed and just ignoring the information and doing everything on a whim.

I think I need around 300 times the number of page views before I can give up the day job (and even then, it would be the height of stupidity to rely on free search engine traffic for all of my earnings).
I’m not sure why…
