Google Analytics guide

In this section we'll take you through how to work with the Google Analytics data source and how you can customize your widgets to get your most important metrics on your dashboard

Add a widget and select Google Analytics from the data sources list and hit ‘Connect via Google Analytics’. In order to access your Google Analytics data in Geckoboard your account will need to have Viewer, Editor or Administrator permissions.

If you have multiple websites you’re tracking with Google Analytics and you’d like to share data from another, simply add another account with the following steps.

As well as the preconfigured options you’ll see when you go to add a new Google Analytics widget, there are many ways you can adapt your data so it shows exactly what you’re looking for.

Change website view, the metric you’re tracking, the visualization type, apply a different time frame, and add filters to break out specific data such as traffic source, page, device, goals and more.

See the video below for a quick overview of ways to customize your Google Analytics widgets.

Tracking a specific page performance

If you have a page or a group of pages that you’d like to monitor closely you can pull these out into widgets of their own. Here’s a look at how to do this using page paths as filters.

Creating a leaderboard of best performing pages

Want to see which pages are getting the most traffic? Build a leaderboard and use page titles as the labels, see how to do this below.
