Hi

I just published a google site page.I read that Google Analytics can help track which pages on the site are viewed the most, and report on how many visitors to the site. I don't have a business name, which would be required in the first field for the Account Name so I can't continue setting it up. Can you suggest on how I can use Google Analytics?

Hi :-)

A business name is not a requirement for using Google Analytics.
You can name an analytics account anything you want, it is simply so you can easily

identify the analytics account if you have more than one.

You can also easily edit the account name at any stage should you want to call it something else.

Where it states Accounts are the top most level of organization, it is referring to how GA accounts are 

structured.
You can read up more on that here
