Google Analytics is a free web analytics service offered by Google which offers site owners meaningful insights into the browsing behavior of the users. In Google Analytics, reports are categorized into 4 sections:
- 1. Audience
- 2. Acquisition
- 3. Behavior
- 4. Conversions.
1. Audience: The audience reports in Google Analytics provide insights into the characteristics of users who have visited your site. Audiences in Analytics are users that you group together based on any combination of attributes that is meaningful to your business. For example, you might want to create an audience of users who have purchased in the last 12 months but not in the last 2 months. You can then remarket to this audience using Google Ads.
2. Acquisition: The Acquisition report in Google Analytics helps you in discovering how users arrive at your website. You can use these reports to understand whether users are coming from the organic search or paid campaigns or from any other channels. This also tells you how your different channels are performing in terms of the quality traffic on your store.
3. Behavior: The Behavior reports in Google Analytics help you in understanding how users are interacting with your store pages, which pages are viewed the most, and which pages are making your users leave your store. These insights help you in making sound technical decisions to improve on your store’s UX or to better your merchandising efforts.
4. Conversions: This is the most important feature for the ecommerce businesses globally as it helps you understand your ecommerce business holistically. Ecommerce segment under conversions tab in Google Analytics provides you 9 enhanced ecommerce reports as explained below:
i) Overview: The Overview report lets you see the overall state of your business, and provides three categories of related metrics:
- Revenue and Conversion Rate
ii) Shopping Behavior Analysis: The Shopping behavior analysis report lets you see the number of sessions that included each stage of your purchase funnel. It gives you holistic view on which funnel step your site visitors are leaving you the most. The funnel steps are sessions for the site visit to product detailed views to cart abandonment to checkout abandonment to final purchase. This helps you in identifying the strengths and weaknesses in your purchase funnel.
iii) Checkout Behavior Analysis: The Checkout Behavior Analysis report lets you see how successfully your users moved through your checkout process. The checkout-funnel visualization illustrates how many users moved on from one step to the next, how many abandoned the process at each step, and how many entered the process at each step.

5. Custom Dimensions and Metrics: One of the most important feature of Google Analytics is creating custom dimensions and metrics.

For example, on the order confirmation page the required data points that have to be pushed are: id, affiliation, revenue, tax, shipping and coupon. Now say you want to see sales performance report based on the user role or based on the week day or based on the city, then you can create custom dimensions for user role or for week day or for city in pass that when the order confirmation page is called along with the necessary data points asked by Google Analytics.
