Google Analytics is a tool that provides you with valuable insight into what is happening on your website. Cool, huh? If you haven’t taken advantage of Google Analytics – act now! You will be impressed as to how much information you gather from the reports.
Now, if you are a newcomer to Google Analytics, it’s very robust with charts, graphs, and numbers. There is a ton of information displayed and it can be intimidating and overwhelming- but don’t let that stop you. Today, we’ll briefly discuss 3 Google Analytics Reports that can be extremely beneficial to you and why.
Mobile Performance Report
Let’s face it, mobile devices are taking over. Most of us are guilty of browsing the web from our mobile devices. It’s the norm these days. It’s actually more common than browsing on a laptop or computer. In fact, mobilization is so important that Google actually penalizes sites that are not mobile friendly. This is why the mobile performance report is important. This report shows you how well your site is optimized for mobile devices and where you need to make more improvements. Make sure to check the bounce rates on each device. If your bounce rate is high on a mobile device, this might be due to a poor mobile experience. Just a tip: test out your site on your own mobile devices, click around and be objective – you want to ensure your customers have the best mobile experience possible.
