If you’re new to Performancing’s PMetrics web analytics service – or simply haven’t checked your stats panel lately – you might not know about some of the new “daily” features in the Dashboard section. You can see them in the screen snap below, in the green-highlit area.
Both sections show daily metrics that can be viewed in 30-, 90-, and 180-day windows, and offer numerous options to compare against:
- Bounce rate
- Traffic sources
- Web browsers
- Operating systems
- Screen resolutions
The “Daily visitors” feature refers to the number of unique visitors. The “Daily actions” feature refers to the number of page views. If you select one of the compare options, you get a chart that shows the Daily values (visitors or actions) visually compared to the selected metric.
These graphs give you a handy way to compare web site traffic trends and to see spikes. You can also see cumulative stats elsewhere in the Dashboard, if you chose a range in the date drop-down list at the top right.
