Starting a career in Digital Marketing can be easy, but with time you need to understand that whatever digital marketing activities you perform you need to measure them and generate reports about the same. But how will you measure these digital marketing activities? The answer is by using Web Analytics & Google Analytics tools. Web Analytics helps digital marketers to analyze the site performance, understand user behavior and also helps to check which pages work best for their website and which pages help them generate more traffic and have high conversion rates. With this blog post, we are sharing Top 10 Web Analytics Interview Questions & Answers so that you as a digital marketer will be able to deal with all types of Web Analytics queries.

How Does Web Analytics Work?

Most web analytics tools use “tags” in their javascript of the web pages code. With the help of these tags, the analytic tools measure the number of visitors visited your site or the number of clicks on a particular link. These tags also help in measuring the device from which the visitor visited, the location(through IP address). You might wonder that web analytic tools also use cookies to track individual sessions and the number of visitors who visited your site again. These days browsers have put restrictions around adding code snippets to the web pages and users also delete cookies hence getting accurate web analytics is little difficult.

Define Session, Pageviews, Users &  Goals?

Session – Whenever a user visits your site or the page the session starts. A single web page session can last till 30 minutes. A session is counted as a new session when a user lands on the webpage from a different source. So here the user can be the same the user or a different user. A single session can include multiple pages.

Page Views – the number of times a page is viewed or opened by a visitor is tracked by analytic tools.

Users – are the visitors who have completed 1 single session in a specific time period.

Goals – these are defined as the completed user actions or activities. Goals are also called as conversions as they add up to the success rate of the business. We can only have 20 goals per web property.

What do You Understand by Bounce Rate & Exit Rate? Which is More Important?

Bounce rate is calculated by the number of visitors landing on your web page but do not stay on that page or do not visit any other page as either they don’t find relevant information or may be the information isn’t interesting.  Accepted bounce rate is 30%.

Exit Rate is defined by the percentage of users seen in the last of a particular session of a web page. These are the ones who left last from a particular page.

Both are equally important to understand the site performance but you need to check why and from where users are leaving more.
