The metrics dashboard provides metrics for the performance across your website(s) as well as individual Experiences. From within the dashboard, we measure key metrics including visitors, engagement, click-throughs, shares, and content.
This article contains the following sections:
To access, navigate to the Metrics tab.
When you access the Metrics tab, you will land on the Overview tab by default. This tab lists the key metrics and their details to provide a summary of the stats for an individual Experience or all Experiences selected.
You can see the performance graph for the metrics by clicking on the dropdown highlighted in the screenshot above.
A visitor session...
- starts when a user lands on the Experience and ends after 30 minutes of inactivity or at midnight GMT.
- can contain multiple views, clicks, and shares by a single user.
- is similar to a session in Google Analytics
A single user can visit an Experience multiple times, which counts as multiple visitor sessions. Learn more under Detailing Metrics, below.
Engaged sessions are the number of sessions that lasted longer than 10 seconds, had a conversion event, or had 2 or more screen or page views. If the user has been on site for less than 10 seconds or did not engage in any way, they would not be defined as an Engaged Session. Learn more under Detailing Metrics, below.
Click-Throughs are defined as the number of times users clicked on an external link from within the Experience landing page that navigates them to another page or site. They are measured by:
- Featured Units
- Conversion Units
Learn more under Detailing Metrics, below.
Shares are the number of times a user shared an Experience or piece of content within the Experience landing page (or web embed). A share could be of an individual piece of content or a share of the Experience itself. Learn more under Detailing Metrics, below.
Content is defined as the number of pieces of content collected from users. Learn more under Detailing Metrics, below.
