How to use Google Analytics to find out what is the most popular page on your website


23rd January 2014

Google Analytics is an AMAZING FREE tool that will cost you nothing. But it can be a bit intimidating.

How to use Google Analytics to find out what is the most popular page on my website.

Google Analytics is a great tool from google. If you're not signed up, forget about this article for now, and go off and sign up now.

If you are signed up, then you know that it's quite complicated, which is not helped by the fact that they change the layout and terms they use every now and then.

If you have a website, or a blog, then you should know what are the most visited pages on your site.

Let's say we want to change the font colour of a particular paragraph to red.

  1. Step One: Sign in to Google Analytics, and click on the website you want to view the details for:

    Click on your profile
  2. Second Step: Scroll Down to the 'Behavior' section, and click on 'Site Content':

    Click on Site Content
  3. Click on 'All pages':

    Click on All Pages
  4. And by now you should see the most popular pages, so for example here were the top ten pages on Zonua.ie last week:

    Most Popular Pages on Zonua.ie

    When you see a forward slash by itself, that means homepage. If you want to see which page is which then you can just click on the little icon to the right of your page link.

And just to let you know, you can easily break down the data by day, week or month, by selecting the relevant option: Day, Week, Month
