To check website traffic with Google Analytics, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Google Analytics account. If you do not have an account, you can create one for free at analytics.google.com.
  2. Once logged in, you'll be taken to the "Home" screen. Here, you'll see a list of your websites (if you have multiple). Select the website you want to check the traffic for.
  3. After selecting the website, you'll be taken to the "Audience Overview" report by default. This report provides an overview of your website's traffic.
  4. In the left-hand sidebar, you'll find various sections with detailed reports. Explore these different sections to gain insights into your website's traffic, including sources, demographics, behavior, conversions, etc.
  • "Acquisition" section: This shows the sources of your website traffic, such as organic search, direct traffic, referral traffic, social media, etc.
  • "Behavior" section: This provides information about how users interact with your website and the content they engage with. It includes metrics like page views, bounce rate, average session duration, etc.
  • "Conversion" section: This helps track conversions and goals on your website, such as sign-ups, purchases, form submissions, etc.
  1. You can also customize the date range for which you want to view the traffic data. You can choose from pre-defined date ranges or set a custom range.
  2. To get more specific insights, you can select different reports or segments within each report to further analyze your website traffic.


Google Analytics offers a wide range of features and reports to track and analyze your website traffic comprehensively. Spend some time exploring the different sections and reports to gain a deeper understanding of your audience and their behavior.
