Google Analytics is a free web analytics service offered by Google which offers site owners the meaningful insights into the browsing behaviour of the users. In Google Analytics, reports are categorized into 4 sections:
1. Audience: The audience reports in Google Analytics provide insights into characteristics of users who have visited your site. Audiences in Analytics are users that you group together based on any combination of attributes that is meaningful to your business. For example, you might want to create an audience of users who have purchased in last 12 months but not in last 2 months. You can then remarket to this audience using Google Ads.
2. Acquisition: The Acquisition report in Google Analytics helps you in discovering how users arrive at your website. You can use this reports to understand whether users are coming from the organic search or paid campaigns or from any other channels. This also tells you how your different channels are performing in terms of the quality traffic on your store.
3. Behavior: The Behavior reports in Google Analytics helps you in understanding how users are interacting with your store pages, which pages are viewed the most and which pages are making your users leave your store. These insights help you in making sound technical decisions to improve on your store’s UX or to better your merchandizing efforts.
4. Conversions: This is the most important feature for the ecommerce businesses globally as it helps you understand your ecommerce business holistically. Ecommerce segment under conversions tab in Google Analytics provides you 9 enhanced ecommerce reports as explained below:
