Google Analytics Cohort Report Video Explanation

By Sarah Stemen | @runnerkik | Account Manager at Hanapin Marketing

Google Analytics recently added a cohort analysis report as a feature. This report is very easy to set up, and useful when you are looking at user behavior over time. The true value of the report comes from segmenting the data. In the video example below, the segments of data are “All Sessions,” “Email,” “Paid Search,” and “Users who completed a transaction.” We can use this data in combination with our marketing efforts to better understand post first visit interactions with the website.
