In Google Analytics, Behavior Flow is a section that gives eases in addressing behavior of various segments of online users and also their behavior on your site. It is now high time you stop blaming Google for everything and begin optimizing your content in order to meet the demands of the behavior flow. Through Behavioral Flow Report, you can separate pages and sources, and keywords so that you analyze the behaviors of visitors once they access your website. Thus, through analyzing, you can create a model in order to understand how that visitor behaved and why his visit was successful and not other visits.

To get an operational report on Google Analytics, you need to first select “Behavior” and then choose “Behavioral Flow” which is in the sidebar of Google Analytics. Next is, you need to identify the traffic you wish to target or categorize. For that, navigate to the dropdown menu which is just above the Behavioral Flow Report. Punch in “Source” and select from the items that you see in the dropdown menu. The options in this menu are many. When the “Source” is chosen, a list of all the sources of traffic coming on your website would be generated in the form of a diagram. For individual segments, you need to isolate the source and information for every individual groups and segment will be in front of you.

  • The “Related Posts” plug-in displays the information of those posts that had motivated the visitors to stay on your page.
  • If adding a link to allow readers or visitors read further is holding them for a long time on your page, then do that. But make sure that you do not stagnate the flow of the content.
  • You can even find out that- on the page where the content is mostly abandoned. To get an idea of this, you should use “Scroll Depth”. When you attain the information, you can then set pop-ups so that you are notified about the abandonment in the content. But use this tool for maximum efficacy and not just to increase the visit counts.

There are millions of ways through which you can analyze data in Google Analytics but Behavioral Flow gives a better insight of online users’ behavior and where the content needs to be altered.
