Hi!  I'm very new to Analytics and not really sure what a lot of the terms mean so please be kind with your answers Smiley Wink

Hi Lindsay,

This sub-forum specialises in GMB (Google My Business) pages, rather than Analytics.

I've therefore moved your post over to the Analytics sub-forum where I'm sure the experts there will be able to help you. Smiley Happy
