If content and website visitors are at all important to you and your business; chances are, Google Analytics is one of your go-to tools for tracking performance.
Personally, checking Google Analytics is something I do more often than I'd like to admit--an addiction, almost!--to the point of it being a distraction. I'll navigate away from my Notion workspace, open Google Analytics, and look at the numbers for a good 5-10 minutes, trying to absorb insights by doing so...
The truth is, this often simply takes me away from more important work. And now, I have a browser open--links, distractions and new things to check abound.
Which is why I embedded my Google Analytics dashboard directly into my home Notion workspace. It doesn't have all the details I need, but it gives me the big indicators, including:
- Total users (with a customizable date selection tab);
- Total sessions;
- Total pageviews;
- Bounce rate;
- Sessions by country;
- Sessions by acquisition source;
- Pageviews by acquisition source; and
- Demographics data like age & gender.
And to be honest, these are really the only high-level information I need, most of the time, to inform my strategy, decide which content or project to work on next, and ultimately get back to building.
