Is there a way to Segment Traffic Sources by the hour?

Simple as it sounds: Is there a way to Segment Traffic Sources by the hour?

 

When i go to Traffic Sources and i select the "Overview" tab, it gives me the option to narrow it down hourly, now, when i go to Traffic Sources and select any value it disappears, i would like to see how much traffic i got Monday 11:00 vs. Sunday 11:00....

 

Any idea?

I've created a custom Google Analytics report that shows this data. It's not very clean. It shows visits, i haven't added conversions or revenue.

 

You can add a filter, so you can see only the specific hour you are looking for.

Hello JaybTiger,

 

You can see these stats within Adwords itself. There are two ways to found these stats:

 

1) Go To Segment>> Select >> Time>> Hours of the day.

2) Go to Dimension Tab >> Select Time>> Hours Of the Day.

 

To see the stats for particular day, keep the date range upto mark.

 

Thanks,

Neha

Hi JaybTiger,

 

I'm not positive that there is or isn't a way.  I just took a quick look and was unable to easily find this information. 

 

Although there are some Analytics wizards kicking around here, you may find better luck on the Analytics Forum

 

Just a thought.

P.S. - Neha's suggestion may just work for you, I was focused on the fact that you were looking at Analytics data. Smiley Happy

Hey,

 

I just saw Hourly, Day, Week, Month Tab just above graph on top right below Date range.

 

Is that what you are looking for? You need to click Hourly to get hourly stats.

 

Thanks

Of course this is what i am looking for, but when you click on "Traffic Sources" that Tab gets Day/Week/Month but no hour data.

I apologize its not available for Adwords Campaigns. 

 

Okay. when i click to traffic sources>>Overview>> i can see hourly tab along with Day, Week & Month. But the problem is stats can be seen by Graph only. When i click to Full Report, i can't see this tab. 

 

You may ask the same question on Analytics Forum Link given by Tom.
