How to find average number of visits per day

Google Employee

This question was originally asked on the previous Google Analytics product forum.

 

 

The previous version of Google Analytics would give you a figure of the average views per day, by simple clicking on Visitors>>Visitor Trending>>Visits.

These would display as a list of the days with the number graphed next to it, and an average at the top.

I cannot for the life of me work out where this has gone.  How do I find this figure - I could simply calculate it by dividing total visits by days of the month, but can it be found in the new version ?

Well you can get something even better - Custom Reports!

 
Go to the Custom Reports Tab on the top Orange Bar.
 
- Click on + New Custom Report

- Click on Flat Table

- Click on Dimensions (+ add Dimensions) to search and add "Date"
- Click on + add metrics below and add "Visits"
- Click save
 
This table gets you the dates when your users visited your site and therefore you can exclude any date that you had 0 activity on (like a sunday)
 

Hope that helps

This is no longer accurate as "Visits" has been changed to "Sessions".

Yes "Visits" has been changed to "Sessions" but it shows a different result.

Sessions will be tracking specific visitor, but is it possible to see just generally the number of visitors per hour or per day?

Hi, 

 

I understand that the solution provided gives the sessions segmented by date, but not the average daily sessions, which was the original question.

 

Is there any way to get the average sessions per day? Maybe through a calculated metric?

 

Thanks,

Hi, 

 

I am looking for the same solution. The average daily, weekly and monthly sessions over the last year compared to for example year before. Does anyone know a solution? 

 

Thanks!

@Service C - use a custom report. Set sessions as the metric and date as the dimension. Adjust date range accordingly.
