Google Analytcis for green part 2 - statistics

Once we have Google Analytics configured with our blog, it is worth finding out what statistics to look for, which to send to the principals and potential companies with whom we want to cooperate.
Today, a bit about the statistics themselves, and in the next part of Blogger's Guide I would like to talk a bit more about how to read statistics and how to improve some of them.

Recently, I got a lot of questions about Analytics, so I will repeat again - everything that concerns Google Analytics and will appear on our blog is FREE.
When we log in to Google Analytics, we go to the "Recipients" tab. These are the statistics that interest us the most. They show how many page views a given month, week, day had a blog, as well as how many pages readers viewed on average. In the statistics you can also find the number of Users who were previously called Unique Users (or uu).

We also have bounce rate here. The lower the better. Unfortunately, blogs often have this ratio high, because people who usually search for specific information enter blogs.

Another important point is the average session duration. This statistic shows how much time users spend on your blog on average. Of course, the higher the average session duration, the better.

What statistics should I send to clients?

When we are in the "Recipients" tab at the top right we choose the period of time that interests us. Customers are usually interested in the last month, i.e. the period from the first to the last day of the previous month.
On the graphic I marked the field with a red rectangle. It is these statistics that we send to clients. It's best to do print screen statistics, crop and save the file to your computer.

What statistics from Google Analytics are worth observing?

First of all, the statistics that I described above. This is the absolute minimum that every blogger should know.
The recipients can also find detailed information about demographic data (after clicking on the tab, detailed data such as age and gender are shown), as well as interests.


Check what bookmarks are worth having on your blog click

By clicking "Mobile Traffic" in the "Recipients" tab you will find out how many people enter your blog via mobile devices. Nowadays, more and more people use the smartphone or tablet to surf the Internet. That's why it's worth having a mobile version of your blog.

And finally a curiosity

On the left is the "Live" tab. These statistics show how many readers are currently on the blog, as well as from which websites they have entered your blog.

    Is it normal that I don't have any statistics after adding a blog? In a sense, everything is zero despite the fact that someone visits the blog / comments.
    And if so, after what time statistics will appear? 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 24 July 2016 / 21: 24

      Yes, that's normal. Statistics are calculated after 24 / 48 hours. And these are, of course, statistics since the Google Analytics configuration with the blog 🙂

    And what is this bounce rate actually? 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 24 July 2016 / 21: 26

      I didn't see the comment. The bounce rate is the moment when someone enters the blog / post and exits immediately.

    I have this problem, that sometimes, despite the date change, I still see the same statistics, the numbers do not change ... I think I have to work on it 😉

      This is an interesting thing, unless you have to contact Google Analytics support.

    I have analytics for a short time, but I finally understood what it is all about 😀 Thanks! :)

    A useful post, I like this site for accuracy, because the statistics that everyone sees on their site are not very sure 🙂
    Best wishes, my blog / CLICK :))

      Blogger statistics are usually inaccurate. I have never been interested in how they count it, but in my case they are always higher than those from Google Analytics. I have not looked at blogger since I have an account on Analytics 😉

    I was waiting for this guide! 🙂 Right after publishing the first part, I created an Analytics account 🙂

  8. Avatar Jasminum 3 December 2015 / 19: 23

    Very useful entry 🙂 Now I understand what it's all about 😀

  9. Avatar Sylwia tests and advises 3 December 2015 / 18: 49

    And I always clicked send by email, I didn't even come up with a print screen sumie
    But ... write what we send ... If we are in the total recipient tab and underneath we have to expand the bar and there% of new page views, page views, sessions etc. - I just don't know that and leave it there as it is sessions czyli

    A useful entry, but first I have to go back to the first part. I've been tempted to embrace all this for a long time, but I still excuse myself that I can't. Now there are no excuses! 😀

    I want to use it a long time ago, I am completely green, what you write is understandable, but connecting there is black magic for me but soon I will find you and such a post, maybe this time it will work
