Q: Chris, how can I easily see what my traffic trend is?

A: Use the Graph By option in Google Analytics on the Dashboard screen.

Here’s how you do it.

(1) Login to your Google Analytics account

(2) Select the profile you want to view. Remember to have separate tracking (i.e. profile) for your website vs. blog.

(3) The start-up screen is usually your “Dashboard.”

(4) Set a date range

(5) Select the graph by option
