When I add page dimension to my data studio report, it appears to pulling in landing pages.  How do I pull in the all pages data from GA?

Hi Matt, 

 

Sessions correspond with entrances when applied to a hit level dimension such as page, so it makes sense for sessions to be equal for both Page and Landing Page. To get data for all pages, use Page as the dimension and pageviews and/or unique pageviews as the metric(s). If you're trying to figure out how many sessions saw a specific page, Unique Pageviews is the metric you're looking for. 

 

Best,

Mike

Use Page instead of Landing Page.

For easy debugging, add the Sessions metric. The metric will contain lower values for a Pages reports than for Landing Page reports (sessions are only attributed to pages if sessions begin with said page).

I get the exact same number of sessions when I use either page or landing page as the dimension.
