Audience Geo Location Region

The Analytics Audience Geo Location is a visitor report that can be viewed by Region/area, Cities and States. The Geo Location Region report can be customized to include Geo location sessions summary and audience details by Region/area. A Compare to Past feature allows you to include comparison data for the previous period, calendar month(s), same time last year or a custom date range.

Similar to the Audience Geo Location report data can be filtered by Key Metric (sessions, percentage of new sessions, new users, bounce rate or pages per session), Segment and Goal Conversion type.  Goal Value can be displayed in your choice of world currencies.

Important! To view this report Google Analytics must be configured correctly (please refer to our Google Analytics documentation) for the primary domain.

Report Options

Report Title


  • Select Report Dates from the Report Options calendar tool or select a Custom Date Range in the top right toolbar
  • Check the Compare to Past box and select a period, if desired.

    If "Previous Period" is elected and the report date range is set to a 31-day month (e.g., July), and the previous month has only 30 days (e.g., June), then the report will include the last day of the month prior to that (e.g., May 31). This is the way the Google calculates the dates in their reports.

    We also offer a "Calendar Month(s)" option that compares each full calendar month in the report date range to the previous month(s). For example, if you select a report period of April 1 - May 31 (i.e. 61 days), the previous Calendar Months compared will be February 1 - March 31 (59 days), even though the total number of days in the 2 periods are not the same. As opposed to the "Previous Period" setting, resulting in a comparison period of January 30 - March 31 to match the 61 days of April 1 - May 31.

    The "Same Time Last Year" setting matches exact dates (e.g., January 1, 2018 - June 30, 2018 compared to January 1, 2017 - June 30, 2017).

Google Analytics API limits the number of requests from an IP address for a domain each day. If you see a screen in our Analytics section that displays titles but no data, it could be that you/your team have exceeded that threshold by multiple rechecks. Logging in from a different IP address or waiting until the next day should resolve the issue. Please contact us if the issue is not resolved within 24 hours.
