How can I use Google Analytics? 

Let’s explore GA4 and get familiar with its interface. 

At the top left corner, you’ll find the main menu, while the left sidebar houses the primary navigation menu. 

The central area displays the reports or analyses you select from the sidebar. The search bar is at the top middle, the admin button is at the bottom left, and your account information is in the top right corner.

The main navigation menu includes several key sections. 

  • The Home page is your default landing page, offering a customizable view of key reports. 
  • The Reports section provides data about your website’s traffic, user activity, and conversion metrics. 
  • In the Explore section, you can create custom reports and data visualizations. 
  • The Advertising section shows attribution reports, helping you understand how different channels contribute to conversions. 
  • And the Admin section allows access to account settings.

In the Reports section, you’ll find detailed insights into your website and app traffic. 

  • The Real-time reports show the activities of current visitors, including their device types and locations. 
  • The Life Cycle reports include "Acquisition," which details how users find your site, "Engagement," which tracks user interactions and conversions, and "Monetization," which provides revenue insights for e-commerce and in-app purchases.

The "Explore" section is where you can get creative with your data. 

Here, you can start from scratch to create custom reports or use templates for specific analyses, such as free-form customizable reports and path exploration to track user routes on your site.


What is a session in Google Analytics? 

A session in Google Analytics is a group of interactions a user has on your website within a set time frame. It starts when a user first lands on your site and ends after 30 minutes of inactivity or when they leave. During a session, a user might view pages, make purchases, or fill out forms. Sessions help you understand user behavior and engagement on your site.
