Added analytics a few months after site launched. How to get information prior to adding GA to site?

I launched my site in February. I only added GA last week and it is currently only showing data from the past few days. Is there any way I can get data from when I launched the site back in Feb? I know there were a lot more hits when it went live than now so would be great to see the trends.

 

Also any beginner tutorials will be helpful.

 

Many thanks.

hi @Mitisha P,

 

check out google's analytics course for beginners https://goo.gl/Fi2S5b

 

the collection of data only starts when the GATC is added to the pages, not prior.

Hi Mitisha,

GA is only able to track data from your website from at least a few hours after its tracking is added. GA tracks data by using Javascript software that was installed on your site so there is no way to view historical data from before the software installation.
