4 sections giving you deeper insight about the use of your website's pages

What it is all about

Within the pages feature of the statistics module you have 4 sections that deliver you almost all data you need about your website's pages:

  1. Page visits
  2. Landing pages
  3. Conversion Pages
  4. Referring websites

If you have even more detailled questions regarding the pages section, please do not forget to check out further articles shown at the bottom of this page.

Set the time

Just right above the views within this feature you will always see a bar which enables you to choose a certain time range or even a day for which the data below should correspond to. It is important to constrain the displayment of data to certain dates or periods in which you ran potential campaigns or took other measures in order to measure how successful these actions were for future planning. 

Page Visits

This view provides you with an extensive list of all your website's pages and how many visits each received. The definition of a page visit can be found here. Each bar represents a page within your website. The names are generated automatically from your page title.

A page visit is recorded every time a page is viewed by one of your visitors. Or, more technically, a page view is recorded every time the "tracking action" is executed: when a visitor hits the "back button", a page visit is recorded. When a visitor hits refresh, a page visit is recorded.

This table helps you to understand in depth how the overall traffic of your website is distributed among the single pages of your website.

The horizontal x-axis shows the number of visits per page. The scale of the axis is always generated automatically.

Important hints:

  • If you move your cursor across a bar, a hover will appear showing you the exact amount of visits for this page and the percentage of your overall visitors visiting this page – a "46 %" hence means that 46% of your overall page visits have been received on this page.
  • At the very bottom of the graph you might find a green icon with the label "See more". Clicking on it, will extend the graph downward displaying yet more pages that were visited by your visitors.

Conversion Pages

In this section you are being given a list of pages, which you have self-defined as "conversion pages" within your settings. The definition of a conversion can be found here. Each bar represents a conversion page within your website. The names are generated automatically from the corresponding page title.

A "conversion page" is a page within your website that you consider important for the success of your website (page implying that a payment has been done, reaching a specific document uploaded, etc.).

Referring Sites

In this section you get a good picture of what third party websites/URLs refer traffic/visitors to your own website. 

Each bar represents a third party website. Always the "main URL" is set as a name for a third party website. 

This table is very important when it comes to understanding where your visitors are actually coming from and what other sides refer/recommend you with direct links to your website. These informations can be used to further analyse your user base, what content they like, what interests they have, etc.. You can also improve your cooperation with third parties to even further increase your referred traffic from other websites.
