Apart From Occasional Headaches: Difference Between Sessions And Page Views

difference between sessions and page viewsDigital Marketing and measurement Model to our website and was reading your articles relentlessly over the past few weeks.

It has all been very helpful and pleasant, apart from occasional headaches. For example, lesson one is that Google Analytics continues to include astoundingly 'value deficient' metrics like Time on Page. This metric, it seems, is all summation time spent by everyone from a source. Rant over.

You will see Conversion Segments. You can apply many amazing segments that are 'built in' or create your personal. To your last question… go back to the last graphic in this post. Basically, you are analyzing the purple box. Yes, that's right! In fact you are analyzing the same person across multiple dark purple boxes. I know that the dimensions automatically are session level, and the metrics will be session level, So in case you agree.

difference between sessions and page viewsIf I use the unique pageview metric I don't get unique number people, only the number of sessions.

Meaning one person can visit a specific page a number om times and increment the unique pageview count for that page for my period. It may be that call to action an inspires people to more frequently go to page X and B inspires people to go to page it actually may be the case that it's the text on page X that's actually causing people to be more engaged and thus is the more proximal actual cause choice to convert.

When going a step further there's not much more than per visit value and page value. GA I am intimidated on HOW to create a specific session level or 'hit session' report.

Integrating your analytics tool with the testing tool makes this easier to do.

So here's a question. Another question that I always have when setting up A/B experiments is about what is conversion ideal definition rate in the context of an A/B experiment focused on a specific site category / journey / section, is that the case?

If you don't have a purpose, wouldshould like to identify one please see this post on how to. Digital Marketing and Measurement Model My reason for reading this post is my current problem with a custom report which is reporting 138 bounce rates because I think I'm mixing a Pagelevel custom dimension with Session Level metrics.

For each micro conversion I then assign that value to the event value set up in Google Tag manager.

That value gets passed to a goal set up in GA. Similar to your example and many commentators, I'm making an attempt to understand which content type can be attributed to various conversions.

It's also where the session started, as for search keywords, I actually guess that landing page is a hit level metric. It doesn't seem silly to check the e commerce conversion rate or per session value of sessions that started on a particular page. Anyway, is it? It's a well the silent death part is that as you stare at the table above it looks like something is happening. All the numbers are different. You might say co is fantastic at 10. That is just a garbage number.

Eventually, you might look at use Google Adwords to retarget my RSS readers to promote products that result in ecommerce transaction with much higher value resulting in a high per visit goal value. You see, does this mean twitter is performing poorly? Not necessarily.

With the first metric, it isit's super clean to use nique Pageviews if you want to know uniquely what amount visits was a page present in. You would not be doing something totally imprecise. Exactly how many times a page is seen during one visit, use Pageviews, So in case you want to go deeper. That would show what amount times Page X was viewed and exactly how many times it was unique in a visit. Seriously. Nice! Although, the question you ask at the start is, why do you do Twitter? Furthermore, why do you do Social Media, am I correct? Basically, maybe for your company it is irrelevant to make money. Certainly, in that case, the report is showing that your strategy is working just fine.

Maybe you can answer this.

GA's page value metric in the Core Reporting API -is this really missing, right? Google Analytics API here. It gives you the freedom to fetch up to 7 dimensions and however many metrics you want, unlike the interface. For instance, which means that mixing danger in wrong level metrics and dimensions is significantly higher.

Google Analytics is the community driven content, which other suites such as Omniture, WebTrends, and stuffand suchlike have yet to achieve. Many testing tools make it easy for you to set two goals, and to measure statistical significance for both.

Just to make sure I understand what you are saying here, in this example, the metrics that should was used are pageviews and page value, visits instead and revenue, for my question, By the way I came across info about using pivot tables.

Take your source report as an example. What value do we get out of this report, is that the case? If I was this owner site, does this mean I should think of changing my twitter strategy to try and get that up?

It seems to me that the problem is uncertainty in inferring a connection between a single hit level metric and an overall session level metric.

In a bounce degenerate case it's clear that the hit metric is 100 correlated/responsible with the session level metrics. With a two page session the split might be 50/50 in terms of page which views is 'responsible' for the session level metrics. With longer sessions it becomes more and more suspect to assume that any particular hit level metric can claim any responsibility toward a given session level metric. Generally, that doesn't mean there was not an association. Then, if 100 of sessions hitting a particular page are converting and 0percent of sessions not hitting that samepage aren't converting then you can be pretty confident that hit level metric is related to the session level one. Of course, it's probably your payment page so you should have already noticed.

I'm not sure what you are looking for, Therefore in case there isthere's no outcome.

What the purpose would be. But. You can work with a GACP who can look into your specific scenario and give you specific consulting. You'll find a list here. Thank you, Avinash! You have a way of explaining things that make it seem so simple. Thanks to this post, I know I'll be able to win the argument and hence, get our company dashboards finally changed. It's difficult to argue when the data 'looks' right to the untrained eye.

nothing else comes from that, normally we discuss the results and agree that we disagree with them. It's a point thats often overlooked without consciously thinking about it -after all, our logic that calculating exactly how many conversions a given page was driving -seemed sound.
