When I have started my online marketing blog a month back I wasn’t that much familiar with the Analytics data. But when I started getting visitor on my blog then I started using Google Analytics.
Now it’s become first thing in the morning when I switch on my laptop to log on to analytics.google.com. And check the visitor flow on my online marketing blog.
Here I am going to explain you how I use Google Analytics to view the data.
Log on to your Google Analytics account using existing Gmail ID or create new account. As I have created new Gmail ID to access Google Analytics account. What I believe if you are doing new project than create new id instead of using the existing Gmail ID.
Now I login into my Google Analytics account.

Home: It’s a first page which looks as it is and shows website data at right panel.
After clicking on Customization > Dashboards you can view the below report which shows all the data at one panel. So, it basically works as an overview to look at all the report and consist of New Users, Users, Session, Session by Browser, Bounce Rate, Avg. Session Duration and Pages / Session, Revenue and Goal Completions.
Customization > Custom Reports
So, in Customization I used only two option for generating the custom report to view the data of online marketing.
In this step, I basically search for reporting data.
I quickly click on Real-Time > Overview to see the active user on my website. I really enjoy if some user is showing under Real-Time tab.
So, based on the Real-Time user it shows below info:
About these will discuss when I start getting real user every time a day because at present I don’t find any Real-Time user.
Now I click on Audience. So here I get the details of

Available lifetime value metrics are:

The following are also available for accounts with ecommerce tracking enabled:
