How To Grant Google Analytics Access
At Chair 10 Marketing, we work with a wide range of clients, from small businesses to large corporations. As an Internet marketing agency, all of our clients typically have one thing in common: websites! Most of those websites use Google Analytics to track and analyze their visitors, providing deep insight into how people spend time on the site. There are a variety of great reasons you may want to share this Google Analytics information with others, but you don’t need to share your personal Google account password to do so!
If you need to grant Google Analytics access to an employee, client, colleague, or agency representative, just follow these quick steps and you’ll be up and running in no time.
Step 1: Log In To Your Google Analytics Account
Step 2: Select Your Website
Step 3: Enter Your Admin Panel
Step 4: Select “User Management”
Step 5: Enter The New User’s Email Address
In the “Add permissions for” section, enter the address of the person you want to grant access to. Note: The email you enter in this field does not have to end with @gmail.com, but it does need to be associated with Google accounts for this process to work.
Step 6: Decide What Access Level You Want to Provide
Next, you can select what level of access you want to provide. If you are providing access to a business partner or fellow owner of your business, you may want to check every box to provide them full access. If you are simply adding access for an employee or a prospective SEO agency (such as Chair 10 Marketing), you may just want to check “Read & Analyze” until you are ready to grant them fuller access to make changes, set up goals, etc. Note: This access level can be adjusted at any time in the “Account Permissions” column of the above table.
Step 7: Click “Add”
This step is pretty self explanatory, but I will take this space to note that you can check the box above if you would like to notify the user via email once they have been granted permission to access Google Analytics for your website.
Step 8: Celebrate!
Hey, you’re done! Congratulations! That wasn’t so hard, but I still think you deserve a pat on the back! Go celebrate!
