Here's how it works step-by-step:
- Website owners or administrators first create a Google Analytics account and obtain a tracking ID.
- The collected data is then bundled and sent as a request to the Google Analytics servers using AJAX or a simple HTTP request.
- On the Google Analytics servers, the data is processed, aggregated, and stored to generate reports and insights on website usage, user behavior, traffic sources, conversions, and more.
- Website owners or administrators can access the data and metrics through the Google Analytics dashboard, which provides comprehensive reports and visualizations.
