7+ Google Analytics Reports for Marketers

Google Analytics Reports

With over 500 metrics to choose from, Google Analytics is a brilliant tool for tracking website traffic, landing page performance and conversions.

 

But with all those different metrics, the trick is tracking the ones that give you the information you need to optimize search engine performance, drive traffic to your site and increase conversions. The best way to do this is with a Google Analytics report.

 

A Google Analytics report will have only those key metrics that give you immediate insight into site performance and won't get you bogged down in the detail (though, you can drill down into the stats if you like).

 

There are preset templates you can use or you can create custom reports that are set up just the way you want.

 

Here's how Google Analytics reports work:

 

What is a Google Analytics report?

 

A Google Analytics Report is a one-stop tool that lets you track and visualize multiple Google Analytics metrics in a single dashboard. You can create Google Analytics reports using Google Analytics itself, Excel spreadsheets, or an automated marketing reporting tool like DashThis. The advantage of using a reporting tool is that it's completely automated and fully customizable so you can stay on top of the KPIs that are most important to you in the blink of an eye.

 

Why should you use a Google Analytics report?

 

Good reporting is essential for digital marketers - it tells you (and your clients if you're in an agency) what's working well and what might need some tweaking.

 

Google Analytics has hundreds of metrics, so using a Google Analytics report helps you see only the most important KPIs for your business at a glance. To help you save even more time, an automated Google Analytics report takes the hassle out of reporting completely since the data gets pulled, visualized and sent automatically so you don't have to manually enter or copy-paste the numbers.

 

What's more, with a Google Analytics report you can combine your Google Analytics data with data from your other online marketing channels - this lets you see at a glance how your whole digital marketing strategy is playing out. 

 

The top Google Analytics report templates

 

Report templates can help you track every kind of data including:

 

- Sources: where a visitor was right before they went to your site - usually it's a website

- Mediums: how a visitor gets to your site - like clicking on an ad or a social media post, for example

- Visitor behaviour: which pages people go to and how long they spend there, for example

- Conversions: when people do a particular action, like make a purchase or sign up to a newsletter, for example.
