How to Change Google Analytics Time Zone?

I wrote an email to analytics-support@gmail.com asking for guidelines to change google analytics time zone. Following is the draft of my email.

Hello Support Team

Can I change my google analytics time zone? I have already linked adwords account to analytics account.

For some specific reasons I like to get the time zone changed to
Bradford, United Kingdom from (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time.


Please provide me with the necessary guidelines to change the time zone.

Your assistance is much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
KamalChandran

Hello KamalChandran,

Thank you for your email.

If your Analytics account is not linked to an AdWords account, you'll be able to set your time zone preference from the Main Website Profile Information section of your Profile Settings page. By default, all accounts are set to use Pacific Time in North America.

If your Analytics account is linked to a Google AdWords account, your time zone will be automatically set to your AdWords preference and you will not see the time zone feature in your Analytics account. This ensures accurate reporting on your AdWords campaigns.

It's important to note that changing your time zone will only affect data going forward, and will not be applied retroactively. You may notice a flat spot or a spike in your report data around the time that you updated your time setting . This is caused by a time shift forwards or backwards,
respectively. In addition, your report data may refer to the old time zone for a short period after you update your settings, until our servers have processed the change.

As the testing industry grows and matures, more testers will likely:

But before the testing industry can really prove its worth, more testers will need to know  why  they’re testing -- before they start running tests. To answer “why", you must first formulate a sound hypothesis. Your hypothesis needs to get to the core of what you’re trying to achieve through testing. Testers who start with solid hypotheses have better odds of running valid tests with significant results. Valid tests can lead to big conversion gains. Big conversion gains can equate to big revenue increases. And, of course, big revenue increases mean your company’s doing well. The rest is a no-brainer. If you’re helping your company profit, you might just get that bonus, after all!

Measuring conversion rates on “thank you” pages provides?

Harnessing the power of ‘thank you’ is important. It’s also often overlooked.  Testers tend to get so wrapped up generating leads and sales, they forget to test the receipt / thank you page. But testing this last step in the sales funnel offers a golden opportunity. That’s because roughly 40% of traffic landing on your thank you page will convert again for something else.  Take advantage of this high conversion rate by testing ways to bring your customers back – again and again. When testing thank  you pages, make sure to think about your audience. Find ways to cater to both first-time and return visitors. Both have different needs. Consider testing different offers for each group to keep them coming back. Test  your thank you emails, too. Did you know new customer thank you emails have the highest open rate of any message you’ll ever send? That’s an insane amount of attention you’ll never get from your customers again. Test ways to extend conversions in your thank you emails.
