We use the analytics account to gather the information and get a report on the visitors of a property.

Just keep the default unfiltered view for the property.

Properties- Within the analytics account we create properties which will help us collect visitor’s data. Each can hosts more than one properties.

Each property will represent a unique Website or mobile application.

 Each unique property has a unique tracking code because of which we collect data of the visitor.

Views- It is defined unfiltered access point to the reports that are generated through a unique tracking code of the property.

It is like the gateway to reports of your properties.

TERMS YOU MUST GET FAMILIAR WITH BEFORE USING GOOGLE ANALYTICS ACCOUNT:

Users- Those visitors who already have at least one session

New users- Those visitors which have their first time on your website.

Sessions- It is a period of time when the user is active on your website.

Everything they do on your website is recorded within that visit until the session is expired(30 mintues).

Number of sessions per user- It is the average number of session per user/visitor/person.

Average session duration-It is the average length of the session of your website.

It is calculated by dividing the total time spent on your website by the total amount of users.

Pages/Session-It is the average number of page views which a visitor sees during a session.

It is calculated by dividing page views from the session.

Page views- It is the total number of pages viewed by all the visitors.

Repeated views of the pages are counted.

 It is the sum of pages viewed by all the visitors and not by a single visitor.

It is like when the page is loaded on a browser or reloaded

Unique page views-It is the number of new or unique pages a visitor sees on your website at least once. Google does not count multiple views of the same page by the same user.

For example- If someone landed on your homepage and then goes to your contact page and comes back to your homepage. In this case, the homepage would have 1 unique page of view(even though the page was viewed twice).

Bounce rate- It the single page session of your website when the user does not have interaction and leaves.

% Exit- The percentage of visits of a page that are ended with visitors exiting from there site.
