I am very new to Google Anylitics and sorts. I have followed Shopify guides to connect to my website and authenticate. I have not had Google 'crawl' yet, there's no report. I have looked at robots.txt and don't understand it. Does anybody know of a definitive guide to help me with this? I'm just so new to this, apologies in advance for appearing so dumb :-)

Google Analytics has a lot of bells and whistles. With that said I thought I'd provide you with some information and links that will help with Google Analytics. We have some blog posts and documentation you can check out to learn more about it.

It can take 24 to 48 hours for results to start showing in your Google Analytics account. I know myself it took about 3 days from the day I enabled it before results started showing. If ypu've added it recently you just might need to wait a little longer!
I hope those links help :)
