Google Analytics Real Time Statistics

I love real time statistics. It has helped me monitor immediate keywords at key points in the day. You have to be diligent in your efforts but its amazingly helpful. If you are wondering why you have so many chats coming in or so many sales at a specific time in the day, real time statistics can help you narrow it down. It's also really fun to watch visitors poor in and go through checkout pages!

Real-Time allows you to monitor visitor activity as it happens on your site. The reports are updated continuously and each pageview is reported seconds after it occurs on your site. For example, you can see:
  • how many people are on your site right now,
  • their geographic locations,
  • the traffic sources that referred them, and
  • which pages they're viewing.
