My homepage is : http://example.com/

My blog is : http://example.com/blog/

What I want to know is how many users went from /blog/ to / (i.e., blog to homepage).

And it could be not only /blog/ but from /blog/article01/ to homepage, etc... In other words, all blog traffic to the homepage.

I see many options within Google Analytics but none of them seemed to allow me to do that.

You can go to Behavior -> Site content -> Content drilldown. Then select as secondary dimension "Destination Page".

Apply filters to first and secondary dimensions as you prefer. In that case:

  • Include -> Level 1 page -> containing -> /blog/
  • Include -> Destination Page -> exact match -> /

If you want, you can also create an Advanced Segment for people who visit your blog pages. So you can distinguish them even from other visitors.

You can even use Content Grouping to distinguish content on your website and then use that for example in Visitors Flow and see in much more detail how people behave.

  • Thank you so much ! Just one thing. Are you sure this covers the views from /blog/article01/ to / as well? Because I only get /blog/ in the Page path level 1 (Same with containing or even begin with)

    "Page path level 1" means "everything in 1st subfolder". Try to click on /blog/ and you'll se its children.

  • Ok so after applying the filters you said, if there is "no data for this view", it basically means nobody (even me when I was testing) has be counted as going from blog to homepage?

  • Yes, but double check your filters, and as secondary dimension that you didn't select the wrong destination page (there are multiple ones). Also check on Behavior Flow report, and highlight only traffic through /blog/ and see if it's coming also from the homepage.
