Hallo, 

 

I have a question about user and new user. What is the difference?

What is the time interval for when a new user becomes a user?

 

Hope someone in here know.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mads,

 

A new user is somebody who GA has no record of ever having visited your site before, as soon as they visit again, if they can be matched to their previous visit, they are then considered a returning user.

 

Hope that helps,

Ben
