In this article, we will review how to utilize the Site Traffic Report to have an overview of your Lofty website and traffic status. The data for this report is generated by Lofty's built-in site logs. If you would like a different type of reporting data you may want to consider taking a look at our Google Analytics Integration.
First, navigate to Reporting > Marketing > Site Traffic. *Please note that you can only view your own website traffic, the subdomains are not included.
You can view how many people have viewed your website, how many pages were viewed, and how many pages are viewed on average in the selected timeframe. There is also a trend statistics chart under the overview numbers. The blue line represents current data, which you can compare to the gray line, which represents past historical data.
In the Visitor Activity By Hour section, you can have an overview of the traffic pattern, displayed as seven days a week in the vertical direction, and also the traffic pattern displayed in 24 hours a day in the horizontal direction. Each cell shows the number of visitors that visit your site by hour on a particular day. This dataset will show an aggregate of data over the selected time period to give you better overall insights. All data is shown in your CRM's time zone.
In the New vs Returning section, you can see how many new visitors and returning visitors you've had for a selected date range. Please note that new visitors may also be counted as returning visitors if they returned within the selected date range.
