Sometimes you want to see how traffic from a specific location has changed over time. Maybe you’ve targeted a new country, state, or city and want to see how your efforts are paying off, or maybe you just want to exclude all foreign traffic that might not apply to you.
Either way, it’s fairly easy to see a graph from a given time period and see how traffic from any location has changed over that time frame. Google Analytics may be somewhat tricky from time to time, but we’ll show you how easy it is to get this one.
View Graph of Visits by Location
- Go to your Analytics Dashboard, and go to Audience -> Geo -> Location.
- Click the “Explorer” tab near the top.
- Optionally, select a date range you’d like to view in the top right, or a country from the bottom.
That’s it! Odds are you got to the “Location” screen, but didn’t know that you needed to click through to “Explorer” after that.
See, it’s not so hard! Also, if you want to figure out the traffic source for a specific page on your website, you can do that too.
