This is the eighth lesson video from my course The Exact Process For Setting Up Google Analytics – https://www.thequantifiedweb.com/exactga.
I decided to post the videos from the lessons publicly, but I encourage you to log into the course because from within the course you can access the written notes and the checklists, plus access my special offer. The course is completely free to register 🙂
In this lesson, you’ll be learning about how to create an alert via email that lets you know if your traffic suddenly drops. We create a Traffic Has Dropped alert so that if anything goes wrong during your analytics setup you are notified promptly. This prevents you from losing data due to a small mistake.

If you liked this video and want to find the next one, look out for How to Create an “Include Valid Hostname” Filter in Google Analytics. In that next video, we’ll be showing you how to filter out all traffic to websites that are not your own. This filter would save your data from being ruined if another entity started sending data to your Google Analytics account by error or malice. It makes up one of our standard spam filters.
