Location report


The location report gives you insights into where your site visitors are from. It tells you which country, continent and city they come from, along with details about their internet service provider (ISP), organization and designated market area (DMA). This information helps you understand your audience better and allows you to tailor your site’s content and online campaigns to reach them more effectively. Just remember that the accuracy of the data may be influenced if visitors use a VPN or if you use IP address masking.
