How to check page views of a single page in Google Analytics
Are you curious about how your visitors interact with your one-page website? Do you want to know what interests them the most? Today we talk about how to check page views of a single page! We also deep dive into behavior analytics!
With the right setup, you can easily track your single-page site in Google Analytics just like any other website. Sadly, Analytics doesn’t track pageviews by default on sites that have content on a single page.
Having a single-page website has a lot of benefits over a multi-page site. With a single-page site, your visitors can read your entire content in one place, as they don’t have to explore different pages by making multiple clicks.
Navigate to analytics.google.com in your Web browser. Click the “Access Analytics” button on the right side of the page and enter your Google account email address and password if prompted. If you haven’t yet created an Analytics profile for your website, click on the “Admin” tab and click “Add New Account” to create an account for the website you wish to track.
The Behavior section reveals what your visitors do on your website. Specifically, the reports tell you what pages people visit and what actions they take while visiting.
You can access Behavior reports using the menu in the left sidebar of your Google Analytics dashboard.
For example, in this video, I’ve discussed that I made content in regards to Diablo 2, an action role-playing hack-and-slash computer video game. In this webpage, you could keep track of how your pages are ranked according to the number of views.
You could click on your chosen page to see its detailed statistics, as seen in the screenshot above. You could also change the time period from daily, weekly, and monthly, depending on the data that you want to see.
The Behavior Flow report lets you see the path visitors commonly take on your website—from the first page they view to the last page they visit before leaving your site. This report gives you a visual guide to how long visitors stay on your website and where those visitors end up leaving.
One of the keys to maintaining a successful website is continuous tracking and analysis of its performance metrics. Web analytics programs such as Google Analytics provide numerous reports about user behavior on your site. The Pageviews report in Analytics allows you to see how well a given page engages users relative to other pages. The Pageviews data can also provide insight into whether the content on a page meets the needs and expectations of your visitors.
