Page report

Analytics new

The page report shows how traffic spreads on pages on your website. You probably will spend a great deal of time looking at this report as it highlights the content popular among visitors. It also lets you analyze traffic channels and devices used to browse those pages.

This report is based on page URLs and page titles — two elements that describe a web page. In most cases, page titles are unique for each page, but it may happen that they are not. For example, a 404 page has the same page title for all broken links. A page URL, on the other hand, is always unique for a web page. So when you go through reports, don’t be surprised that you see differences in those two categories.
