Jeremy Nelson-Smith The Internet SpecialistHow to use Google Analytics Dashboards

Google Analytics Dashboards are extremely useful for getting a snapshot view of your key data, e.g. visit numbers, bounce rate etc. You can create different dashboards, which allows you to create data sets that can be emailed to different colleagues in your company, for example.

Google Analytics have just updated the Dashboard feature in two important ways – firstly they now have a cleaner look that in my view presents the data better and secondly and more importantly they are now available with Advanced Segments data. This means you can see snapshots of data segmented in various ways, e.g. by paid and non-paid search, direct and referral visitors.

Take a look at my How to use Google Analytics Dashboards video to get a fuller picture – I hope you find it helpful.

All the best.
