On Google Analytics, I can use the Behavior tab to see the details of my pages and how many Page Views and Unique Page Views they generated.

I want to know if there is a way to select a number of pages and see how many unique Sessions those pages had.

For example, if I myself visited a few pages from my site, this is how Analytics currently shows it:

Page            Page Views    Unique Page Views
/index.html     5             1
/about.html     2             1
/contact.html   1             1
                8             3 

There's no way to know all of this was generated by 1 session. How can I possibly do this?

For a single page, Google Analytics is already giving you the number you want: "unique page views".

  • Pageviews -- The number of times the page has been viewed (including multiple times by the same user).
  • Unique page views -- The number of sessions that have included a view of the page.

To know how many sessions that touched any of a set of pages, you can create advanced segment for traffic that viewed any of those pages:

create google analytics segment

Then you can view a report such as "Audience Overview" with this segment applied. That will tell you how many sessions touch any of these pages.


Unfortunately, the second method suggested by Stephen for a set of pages will show incorrect data. As detailed by Analytics Edge, "Google tags the Session count only to the first page viewed". This means that the above example segment will only show sessions where "/section/" is the first page in a session and will not count the sessions where this page comes is in second place or later.


David is correct. Basically GA records the Session hit only for the Landing Page (first page) of a session and not subsequent pages.

Hence if you are looking for the number of sessions in which a particular page was viewed, one should look at the Unique Page View column.

One can view this by following the below path Behaviour -> Site Content -> All Pages and looking at the Unique Page View column.
