How to: New Google Analytics Widgets & Dashboard

Sat, 09/17/2011 - 11:02 -- rprice

The most popular (and free) system for web analytics has got a new interface, so I decided to give a quick tour of the home screen and share three widgets I like to use to get an overview of the activity on my websites.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but these are things I am interested in right now:

  1. find out how many people are accessing my site from mobile devices, or not from Mac/Windows/Linux operating systems at least
  2. find out the most popular keywords bringing traffic to my site, and how many of the visitors are new (this month)
  3. find out what are the most popular pages on the site, and how often that is the only page someone visited (bounce rate).
