Google Analytics allows you to organize various related widgets in practical reports through its Dashboards feature. Now, Google has boosted this feature by offering 4 real-time widgets that can be easily plugged into any of your new or existing dashboards.
You can set up any real-time widget quickly by opening an existing dashboard or creating a new one. On your opened dashboard, just click on +Add Widget. Next, choose from the 4 offered real-time widgets that can be found in the Real-Time section. You can customize all widgets through Widget Settings.
For instance, you can set up the Counter real-time widget and also give it a custom name. You can filter data by Country/Territory and choose Traffic Type in the Group by option, if required. Based on your settings, you can quickly get organic and referral splits.
You can also create as well as combine different widgets to achieve further customization. You can also mix real-time as well as non real-time widgets on your dashboard. You can create separate widgets to compare traffic on a side-by-side basis.
Google’s new Dashboards feature offers you a chance to engage in deeper analysis. You should try out real time widgets and customize them to your advantage.
