Many of you often wonder how you can track your website’s custom data using Google Analytics. Well, in this article, you will learn how to use custom dimensions to track some key data missed by Google Analytics by default. This means getting extra key data on things such as the authors on your website that are getting the most views, the specific content users are clicking, the keywords with the most traffic and so much more.

What Are Custom Dimensions?

To explain custom dimensions, let us first look at how Google Analytics reports data. It reports data in dimensions and metrics.

The dimensions have to do with data attributes linking your site visitors to cities, webpages viewed, sources they clicked or visited from and so much more.

Metris on the other hand have to do with determining the number of page views, sessions, pages viewed per session and so much more. This is the measurement part of Google’s Analytics data. In the image below, you will see that Google Analytics reports dimensions in rows while metrics are displayed in columns.

Why Set Up Custom Dimensions?

As shown in the picture above, “country” is a dimension and each country has the following data such as the total number of visitors/users, bounce rate, sessions, revenue and so much more as the “metrics.”

By default, Google Analytics focuses on some particular dimensions and metrics such as age, gender, region, product, source/medium, and goals. On the other hand, some of the predefined metrics include page views, average time, bounce rate and many more.

So, the essence of this article is to show you how to track dimensions that are not predefined also referred to as custom dimensions. These are dimensions that you create by yourself to track other aspects of your site that may not be captured by Google Analytics. Some of such dimensions include categories that are pulling traffic, tags, authors, and so much more. With the custom dimension setup, you won’t miss out on the most important data you wish to see.

The major reason to set up custom dimensions on your website is for you to be able to track how other things perform such as category, author, tags and so much more depending on what you set in Google Analytics.

Many of you often wonder how you can track your website’s custom data using Google Analytics. Well, in this article, you will learn how to use custom dimensions to track some key data missed by Google Analytics by default. This means getting extra key data on things such as the authors on your website that are getting the most views, the specific content users are clicking, the keywords with the most traffic and so much more.

What Are Custom Dimensions?

To explain custom dimensions, let us first look at how Google Analytics reports data. It reports data in dimensions and metrics.

The dimensions have to do with data attributes linking your site visitors to cities, webpages viewed, sources they clicked or visited from and so much more.

Metris on the other hand have to do with determining the number of page views, sessions, pages viewed per session and so much more. This is the measurement part of Google’s Analytics data. In the image below, you will see that Google Analytics reports dimensions in rows while metrics are displayed in columns.

Why Set Up Custom Dimensions?

As shown in the picture above, “country” is a dimension and each country has the following data such as the total number of visitors/users, bounce rate, sessions, revenue and so much more as the “metrics.”

By default, Google Analytics focuses on some particular dimensions and metrics such as age, gender, region, product, source/medium, and goals. On the other hand, some of the predefined metrics include page views, average time, bounce rate and many more.

So, the essence of this article is to show you how to track dimensions that are not predefined also referred to as custom dimensions. These are dimensions that you create by yourself to track other aspects of your site that may not be captured by Google Analytics. Some of such dimensions include categories that are pulling traffic, tags, authors, and so much more. With the custom dimension setup, you won’t miss out on the most important data you wish to see.

The major reason to set up custom dimensions on your website is for you to be able to track how other things perform such as category, author, tags and so much more depending on what you set in Google Analytics.
