Necessary tool for blogger

Google Analytics is a tool for bloggers who are just interested in statistics and want to have control over what happens in about the blog, but also for bloggers who want to start making money on the blog. There is no secret that the blogger is a “proffession” now and it can be extremely profitable and reach the author of entries among the celebrities (people generally known, but often do not know why). But back to the issue of making money on a blog. The information you receive from Google Analytics, you can use eg. In an advertising campaign with Google AdWords.
