This article will show you how to see Google Analytics for a specific page on your website. This is helpful if you're trying to understand the traffic that a individual blog post is generating, how many people are viewing a services page, or anything else along the lines of that. In the standard Google Analytics dashboard, it's actually pretty difficult to see statistics for a specific page, because there's no easy way to filter down to that from the initial screen. Unfortunately, you can't just paste the URL into the search field either.
However, there is a relatively simple way to view analytics for a specific page in Google Analytics, and that's what this article is going to show you how to do. The first thing you need to do is open up Google Analytics, and then go to the behavior tab. In the behavior tab, click on the site content, then content drilldown tab.
Once you're in this tab, in the search bar to the right of the screen, paste in the path to your page. This excludes the domain, and only includes the path. For example, if we're trying to look up analytics for our article on CSS blockquote styling, the way to do that would be to only paste the following into the search bar:
Then, you simply need to click the search icon in the bar, and you will be greeted with analytics specific to that individual page/post.
And that's all you need to do if you were trying to get specific Google Analytics for a page or blog post, instead of viewing the aggregated statistics for the entire website. This is Incredibly helpful to see if your individual blog post is picking up traction, or if many people are looking at an individual page on your website.
To better understand these statistics for your single page or post, be sure to filter by date, and perhaps add a comparison dimension that compares these individual statistics to another page or post (visually).
