Google Analytics provides powerful metrics like how many users and pageviews a site gets, how long people spend on the site, and how many people leave without clicking other links (bounce rate). You can also see where the traffic to your site comes from using Google Analytics. There are many ways to filter analytics data to create meaningful reports.
You can utilize Google Analytics (or other analytics tools) to collect meaningful information to improve your user's experience on the website and measure the effectiveness of your digital campaigns.

Press Get Tracking ID and Accept the Terms of Service
Copy the Tracking (Measurement) ID to your clipboard
Go to your Nilead dashboard and access the Google Analytics settings of your project
Paste the ID into the Google Analytics Tracking ID field
Save changes and publish
To see if the integration is successful, go to the Real-Time tab and then Overview in Google Analytics. You should see yourself if you have your site open in a separate tab.

When you enable IP address anonymization in Google Analytics, you will be able to mask the addresses of your site visitors. Some countries require this in order to comply with their data protection laws. Additionally, it helps you adhere to your own privacy policies. You can enable IP anonymization in your Google Analytics settings section on the Project settings → Integrations page by toggling the IP address anonymization switch to "YES".
