Yahoo! Analytics is an online website-analysis tool from Yahoo! that is free for Yahoo! E-commerce users with a Yahoo! Small Business Standard or Professional Merchant account. Yahoo! Analytics tracks users by placing a cookie in each visitor's browser, and uses those cookies to log every time a user returns to your website. Once set up, Analytics will function on its own and requires no manual involvement or alterations, though you can change the account settings at any time.
Sign up for a Yahoo! Small Business Standard or Professional Merchant account if you don't already have one (smallbusiness.yahoo.com). As of the date of publication, a Yahoo! e-commerce account ranges in price from $22 to $225 per month. Enter current billing information and other required data, then submit the application and check your email for a confirmation message.
Enter your information into the Yahoo! Analytics' sign-up page at Yahoo! (analytics.yahoo.com); then click "Submit." Check your email for a confirmation message and follow its instructions to confirm your account.
Log in to your Yahoo! Analytics account and browse the menus to familiarize yourself with the system. Access the help menu and read the instructions and tutorials for information on properly configuring the system to meet your specific needs.
