Our previous blog post, entitled Google Analytics Flow Visualization Date Range Comparison, covered the addition of the “Compare to Past” date range feature in the Flow Visualization Visitors Flow report. This feature is available in all three Flow Visualization reports: Visitors Flow, Goal Flow, and Events Flow.
The Visitors Flow report, located under Standard Reporting > Audience > Visitors Flow, allows Google Analytics users to better understand visitor behavior.
The Goal Flow report, located under Standard Reporting > Conversions > Goals > Goal Flow, allows Google Analytics users to visually see the paths taken by those visitors who complete goals, including non-URL goals such as engagement goals like Time on Site or Pages Visited. For this Flow Visualization report, make sure to select the goal you wish to view from the first drop down menu. In the following example, we are viewing Newsletter Sign-Ups.
The Events Flow report, located under Standard Reporting > Content > Events > Events Flow, allows Google Analytics users to better understand visitor behavior in relation to the Events set up onsite. Users have the ability to segment the data and to display Event information as Category, Category / Action, or Category / Action / Label.
The three Flow Visualization reports are a great feature of Google Analytics that allows users to dive deeper into the relationships of different pieces of data about a website. If you have questions about any of these three reports, please contact MoreVisiblity or sign-up for a free Google Analytics Consultation.
