I am building a private photo website to show pictures of the Holidays with some select individuals.
To keep these photos private, on the home page of my website I have a login screen so that only chosen people can view the photos.
I would like to hook up Google Analytics to this site to keep track of WHO visits this site, WHERE they go, and HOW LONG they stay.
Google Analytics seems like the best choice.
My question is whether I can get Google nalytics to work if everything other than the home page is behind a firewall of sorts?
I realize that if I was worried about SEO, that Google cannot crawl web pages behind a login screen/pay-wall/etc. However, my goal is not SEO, but rather to simply keep track of my visitors.
(This site will be shared with maybe 200-300 people, so that is a large enough group that it would be beneficial to track things.)
Will Google Analytics work for my needs, and if so, do I need to do anything special settings it up?
(I used Google Analytics about 5 years ago for a website that I built someone else, but that is so long in the past that I have forgotten how all of this works! Plus my needs for this project are different.)
