How to generate a Year In Review report from Google Analytics

As a blogger or small business owner, I find that it is a good way to start the new year by sharing a Year In Review blog post that reviews the actions that you have performed over the last year. It allows you to remain fixed on the goal while still being aware of what you are working towards, what you have achieved until now, and where your next stop is. Although you might say that it’s not necessary, I feel that it can be helpful at times and keep you motivated.

For one whole year, you have been working hard behind the scenes constantly churning out good content and selling new products. Now is the time to go through the actual numbers to help you review your performance – where you have excelled and where you’re lagging behind. You can then use this as a scale to measure your performance in the subsequent years – plotting your graph as long as you’re working hard to reach your goals.

This can be a great motivator for most people. There’s nothing more satisfying than looking back at all the hard work and reflecting on it. You get a sense of satisfaction and hunger to achieve more. So, how do you get the numbers from your website?

Well, there’s no better place to look at than Google Analytics and MonsterInsights is the best way to extract all the data and display it to you in an easy to digest report format.

Using MonsterInsights Year in Review report, you can view your site’s performance from the previous year seamlessly. Instead of you going through each report separately from Google Analytics manually and putting the data together, you can leave it to MonsterInsights and save a lot of time and effort. Moreover, the chances of some errors creeping in because of manual data entry can be effectively eliminated.

What’s measured in the report

The most basic yet important metrics like the total number of visitors to your website and the total number of sessions that can help you measure your site’s growth is displayed in the report. Along with that, it also displays the regions from where your website got the highest traffic.

This allows you to optimize your website for new countries, regions, and languages. You can even consider international SEO to grow your website worldwide. For example, if you’re blogging in English but you notice that around 30% of all traffic to your website is coming from Spanish speakers, you can focus on creating content in their language to further grow your website.

By finding which content performed the best, you can create different articles touching on related subjects and link back to the main cornerstone article that you want everyone to read. It also improves the value of the main article by grabbing more eyeballs than it usually would. And you can add a call to action on that page to make the readers take action on your website. It can be anything – a popup to collect leads, a button to buy your latest eBook, or a simple request to share your article on social networks.
