Google Analytics is a powerful platform for tracking your website analytics data. However, Google Analytics can be complex to work with and data can be spread out either across multiple tabs or pages or across multiple accounts. Creating a dashboard for your Google Analytics data to bring all of the disparate pieces together into a cohesive dashboard is a productivity enhancing solution.

Does creating an integrated dashboard that you can use to track all the major performance-related stats for your website at a glance sound like a good idea? Give our Google Analytics Dashboard a shot! From visitor demographics to traffic count for the particular duration, the dashboard puts stats that matter, right at your fingertips.

The dashboard is built using jQuery and Bootstrap which are both widely used frameworks so that makes it easy to work with the source code. You can also check out the live dashboard example in action.

What are some key features of a Google Analytics dashboard?

  • Keep track of visitor count within particular intervals of time.
  • Stay informed about visitor demographics (visitor type, gender, age group, traffic source, and location).
  • Find out success rate of search engine optimization by tracking major factors influenced by SEO (page views, average session duration, and bounce rate).
  • Discover major traffic sources (Organic search, direct traffic, referral, etc.) at a glance.
