Google Analytics allows you to set the default date range to the the last 7, 14, 28, or 30 days. You can access this setting from the User Settings which is found in the "Overflow Menu" (vertical three dots): In addition, some people have noticed that if you bookmark a specific set of dates, those dates end up in the URL. Unfortunately, if you create a ...

There's no other way than using a bookmarklet (or browser plugin/extension). I tried the bookmarklet examples above, but none seemed to work for me. The solution in the first link should work exactly like mine, but for some reason it doesn't. The other 2 links are outdated as Google Analytics URL structure has changed. The "easiest" way I found to make a ...

Sometimes Google Analytics metrics can be tricky to understand, but there are a few places where you can get more info about it, namely: Google Analytics Developers API Analytics Help - Metrics and Dimentions, here Directly replying to your question, here's what you'll want to know while quoting this article here: User: The total number of users for the ...

No to tabs, but you could use a combination of multiple dashboards and shortcuts. Shortcuts will let you save certain views of reports (such as secondary filtering data) allowing you to access reports that would typically be nested a few clicks deep. You could for example filter on a specific keyword by referral path. Shortcuts could also be used on any ...

Google analytics does not support changing the default date range or saving a month over month comparison. This question gets asked quite a bit, and I wish they would support it. The only solution to this appears to be to bookmark a month over month comparison view that has static dates in it, and then create a bookmarklet that will calculate the current ...

Google Analytics has its own way to calculate metrics that can differ from other platforms. At this point, is important to understand how they calculate exit percentage: For all pageviews to the page, Exit Rate is the percentage that was the last in the session. I assume in your checkout process the URL is always the same, is that right? In that case, in ...

Does anyone know how to get the same reports the old Google Analytics had using the new Google Analytics 4? Short answer, you cant. GA4 is departure from the "old style" Universal GA. Different api, different reporting etc. If you wish to create a Universal Property, start the new property creation process and on the Property Settings page, select ...

No I don't believe Google Analytics will tell you how many hits a page on your site is generating. Graphics, CSS, JS filese all count as hits to older Analytics programs. But that's a term and number which doesn't mean much. If you have 1000 images on a page what does it matter if you have 1000 hits? Your visitors are who matter not how many files your ...

Well I have a few ideas here. First of all, the most accurate will always be something like Analytics that uses actual server logs to generate statistics. That said here is my opinion: The Keyword Estimator: This will be the least accurate, it is more of a guess than anything and doesn't pertain to your site in particular. It simply guesses based on the ...

My experience with data warehousing for site analytics is that it is very expensive. You are either going to spend a lot of money using a pre-packaged solution, or you are going to spend money (in the form of time or hiring) building one yourself. If you are just starting out, forego the expense of custom analytics. Use free off the shelf products. ...

For both Google and Bing, you can be logged into an account on their sites when conducting searches. In that case, your search is conducted in a "secured context" for privacy reasons, under which your query terms are not available for reports. To separate the two, Google Analytics uses a capitalization for the site name versus lower case for the search ...

I found the answer on this page: http://online-behavior.com/analytics/demographics This is not available with Universal Analytics yet.

You can do that with a Custom Report. Just create a flat table report with dimensions and metrics like so:

The answer is quite easy when you look closer to the screenshot or your Google Analytics account. The missing sessions enter the funnel in later steps - like you can see in the screenshot. If you hover over the small bar at "Sessions with Add to Cart", you'll see a number close to 267,000. In your shop this can occur when your visitor fulfils one or two ...

Closetnoc's comment answers my question: This should resolve on it's own. There is nothing you can do but wait. In my case, I did not have to wait too long. It just may be that some data is missing and a report could not be generated as a result. It could be a simple lag time in updating the database.

This is possible but you would need to use the Google Analytics API to pull in the information from the individual accounts and merge it yourself before generating the report off of it. The standard web interface only allows you to drill into one property at a time. If you are not comfortable programming something to call the API there are a number of Excel ...

Each custom report is based on the same data - the tabs are meant to merely display the data in a different way. To use different data, you need to create a new report. You will not be able to do it in a new tab. Edit: This link lists how different dimensions and metrics work together and exclude each other, which is helpful in making your reports work.

A user is identified by a long term cookie. A user is typically a person on a particular device. The same person would not become a new new user unless they switched devices (tablet to phone to computer, etc), switched browsers, entered private browsing, or cleared their cookies. Two people would usually not be identified as the same user unless they ...

In Google Analytics pick Acquisition from the Sidebar Menu, then All Traffic, then Referrals. To get the specific page that had the link, add a secondary dimension of Referral Path

Go into Admin > Property Settings, scroll down to the bottom and look at User Analysis Enable Users Metric in Reporting Decide if you want this on or off, then go through all your sites and apply the same setting to them.

So apparently they mean links to search console itself, so like if you have a link on a blog post to search console or if you have an app that links to search console for some reason, that's what they're talking about. I was confused too. They wrote it really cryptically, as though I needed to update some link I didn't know about on my own website that ...

Your filter translates to this statement: All pages, that do not match RegEx A OR do not match RegEX B OR do not match RegEx C This essentially returns all or most of your pages, as one of the sub-conditions are likely to evaluate to TRUE, resulting the whole filter to be passed by pages. So for you regex to work, you need to tell Analytics to match all ...

This is possible if your Google Ads URL's are tagged with UTM parameters. (Parameters can be either manually added or auto-tagged.) You also have to make sure you're using the "utm_term" parameter. If the above is true for your campaigns, inside whichever Property you can go to your non-raw data View(s) > click on "Filters" > add a new Custom Filter > ...

The short answer is that since Channels and Traffic Type are different dimensions, they need not show the same data. Exactly why is partially dependent on your account setup. A longer answer - Default Channel Grouping is a categorization that can be edited per View, to change which source/medium values are in which channels, and to categorize traffic on ...

To do what you need to do, you need to use a Custom Report. To the best of my knowledge, this is not an option under Saved Reports. To create a new report, start in Behavior>Events and select a page as the basis of the report. Then, in the upper right hand corner select the "Edit" link. Next, scroll down to Filters and choose Exclude and ...

First of all, you should have BP (Best Practise) views: one for your master reports, one for testing out filters and configurations and goals, and one raw where there are no filters applied. Second, to create a filter where you can see your hostname, you just need to create an advanced filter where you append the hostname to your request URI. This link ...

The conversion rate for a defined date range is calculated by this formula, where all numbers are taken for a given date range: (number of 'user signed in' events) / (number of sessions) This every conversion's rate is tracked separately, not related to other ones. Creating this event will let you track what you want, it seems you've got confused because ...

The only way to achieve this in Piwik is to have your mobile pages served from a dub domain in which case you will be able to track the average load times based on the sub domain. Otherwise if you have specific page URL's for mobile pages you can check the breakdown of page load times by page at Actions > Pages and Actions > Page Titles. http://piwik....

My report is 9 days old at this point. It is March 8th today and it was last updated on Feb 28th. Like you, I am anxious to see this report updated. I fixed most of the issues on this site on March 2nd. Google has just said that the mobile friendly algorithm will run in real time. That is, as they crawl pages, they will immediately asses whether ...
