Use In-Page Analytics

Embedded mode does not by default work with the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox. Those browsers now implement a security policy that prevents insecure content from being displayed within a secure page. You can work around this by clicking the shield icon and allowing insecure content, or you can use the full-view option.

CONTROL BAR

The control bar across the top of the report includes:

  • The menu that you use to select the metric that you want to see in the report, and to set a threshold for visualisations of that metric. For example, Clicks with more than 5%.

  • The buttons to show and hide bubbles, to show and hide the colour scale for bubbles, to turn the browser-size visualisation on and off, and to expand and shrink the site view.

BUBBLES

These indicate the links that users clicked. The numbers inside represent the percentage for the metric that you chose in the Viewing menu.

When you hover over a bubble, you see information about the metric that you selected. For example, if you're looking at the Clicks metric, then you see the percentage and numeric value for clicks on the link.

You also see the Destination URLs for the link, and the number of other links on the page that lead to those same destinations.

If you have applied a comparative date range or Segments, that information is reflected, as well.

COLOUR SCALE for BUBBLES

This feature applies different colours to bubbles of different values. The legend appears at the top left of the web page.

BROWSER SIZE

This feature lets you see the portion of your page that is visible without scrolling to the percentage of visitors that you identify. For example, if you set the slider to 90%, then the portion of the page that is visible without scrolling to 90% of visitors is highlighted, and the rest of the page is identified by a colour overlay. The goal of this feature is to help you maintain the highest visibility for content that leads to conversions.

Select Show percentiles to apply overlays for multiple percentiles so that you can see an overview of the distribution of different browser sizes.

When you use Browser Size, you can choose from three sources of data for comparison:

  • This page Data for browser size for all visitors to this page. For example, the portion of the page visible without scrolling to 90% of visitors to just this page.
    This option takes into account both the date range of your report and any Segments that you have applied.

  • The site Data for browser size for all traffic to this site. For example, the portion of the page visible without scrolling to 90% of all visitors to this site.
    This option takes into account the date range of your report, but not any Segments that you have applied.

  • The Web Data for browser size from all across the Web. For example, the portion of the page visible without scrolling to 90% of all visitors on the Web.
    This option does not take into account the date range of your report, nor any Segments that you have applied.

Page layout is a feature of Browser Size that lets you elect the general alignment for the primary content on your page (Left, Centre or Right) so the Browser Size feature is aligned with that primary content. Click the gear icon to open the Page layout options.
