Segmentation

Segmentation is a method of dividing your analytics data into more manageable chunks according to your criteria. You can create a segment, a data subset, of visitors who share certain traits or behaviors.

You can group visitors based on, for example:

  • Localization (country, city etc)
  • Technology (device, browser etc)
  • Website/App activity, like:
    • Specific pages visited
    • Specific forms filled out
  • Referral (user comes via search engine, website etc)

That allows you to generate reports for selected visitors according to custom criteria.
