Time report (classic)

Analytics classic

The time report is a simple bar graph that tells you when people visit your website. By looking at the graph you can quickly discover at what time during the day, or on what day of the week, your site is the most crowded.

Because it’s not easy to define the time when your website is running in various time zones, the report presents two graphs:

  • Visits per local time: The time of the visitor browser’s time zone.
  • Visits per server time: The time of your data center server’s time zone. (If you need help with defining it, contact our support.)

By default, the visits per local time graph will show you times of day and the number of unique visitors. However, you can always plot other metrics on the graph or change the view to the visits by day of week.

To switch the graph to visits by day of week, follow these steps:

  1. From the date picker, choose a week, month, year, or a date range. The graph won’t work, if you select a single day.
  2. Click on the Related Report on the bottom of the bar graph.
  3. View the report.

The time report will be useful for planning a pop-up campaign or for picking the best time for an email campaign. If your users are interacting with your website in the morning, it could be a perfect time to show up in their mailbox. On the other hand, if your users are not thinking about your website during weekends, it’s pointless to bother them with messages.

Tip: In addition to the time report, you can use the concurrent visits report. It will show you visits happening at the same time distributed over a time period. The concurrent visits report will help you schedule a blog post publication, or will show your developers when to do the load testings.
