Google Analytics is by far the best way to track your websites or
blogs performance.Once you have your account set up you can track not only the
visits and hits on your sites but also the actions visitors take and
One of the seldom used features provided by Analytics is the 'Email Reports Option' that allows you to request the latest stats for your blog or website periodically by Email.This is a great feature that can keep you updated without the need to log in, the report also compresses the main and most important site stats in an easy to follow format.
Some of the extra options are:
Send Report To Others - Have your report sent to team members and partners, for this option include a subject and description.
Report Format - You have the following options *PDF *XML *CSV *TSV *CSV for Excel, PDF is the standard option.
Report Schedule - You have the following options for how often you receive reports *Daily Sent Each Morning *Weekly sent each Monday *Monthly sent on the first of each month *Quarterly sent on the first day of each quarter
