  7. 7. Bounce Rate • The percentage of people who visited a page on your site but left (“bounced”) without moving onto another page. • In the strictest sense, a high bounce rate is not ideal, but this doesn’t necessarily apply in all cases.
  8. 8. Sessions • Counts how many times a user interacts with your content for a given period of time. • A high average is ideal, but it will really depend on the purpose of your website.
  9. 9. Time on Site • This can measure how engaging your site is. • Take note that not all pages are meant to have a high time on site. • This is a good way to determine whether or not your content is able to capture the attention of your audience.
  10. 10. New Vs. Returning Users • Measures how many people who are visiting your website are new and how many people are returning. • While drawing new site visitors to your website is essential, measuring how many people come back to your website is also important.
  11. 11. Tracking Unique Users • Track your site’s unique users month-to-month. • If you observe an increase in your unique users for the month, check to see what elements are contributing to this.
