Google Analytics for the 2008 Survey

Here is a brief guide to finding the Google Analytics information we've asked for on the survey.

For question 31:
From 1st April – 30th June 2008, what was the total number of visitors sessions for your site?

Once you have logged in to Google Analytics, go to the main reports page for your portal.

Select 'date range' in the top right hand corner, and enter 04/01/08 and 06/30/08, then click 'apply'.

The total number of visits will appear below the graph, on the left hand side.

Record this number for the survey, then click on 'Visitors' on the top left hand side of the 'Dashboard' page for question 32:

Of that total number of visitors:

Part 1:
What percentage are new visits?

This is displayed on the main visitors page:

Part 2:
What percentage come from your home country?

Next, click on 'Map Overlay' under the 'Visitors' heading. This will take you to the page below. There are two ways to find the number of visitors from a particular region; either hover the cursor over your country on the map, or look in the list below the map.

The list of countries displays the top ten countries sending visitors to your site. If your home country is not displayed in this list, you can search for it at the bottom of the page:
