Everything you need to know about setting up and using Google Analytics and Search Console.
Sitemap? Google Analytics? Search Console?
If these terms make your head spin, you aren't alone. But, if you are going to run a blog, you have to not only know what they mean,
but how to use them.
"I was able to accomplish everything by going step by step implementing the directions as I went. This is certainly something I needed a class for, no way would I have done this just by reading various articles and then trying to replicate them on my own later."
- Lori Roach, CircleSquareOval
Hi there! I'm Tracie! I started blogging in 2009. Over the years I've turned a blogging idea into a thriving business that earns my family five figures month after month. We've been able to pay off our debt of more than $37,000, purchase two vehicles and even remodel our house - all because of the income I have made from my blog.
It wasn't easy. When I started, there was no one there to help me. I had to figure it out on my own. I remember emailing bloggers asking for help and received no responses. As things came together for me and I figured out how to do things, I vowed to never let another blogger feel like I did.
That's why I'm doing this. I want to give you the information you need to be successful - right from the start!
