Which are the best performing pages and posts on your website? How to find page views in Google Analytics? Here’s a quick, simple guide:

  1. Login to your Google Analytics account and select the website you want to find the page views for.
  2. Navigate to Behaviour > All Pages from the menu on the left hand side.
  3. Decide whether you want to see All Pages or just the Landing Pages.
  4. Filter the information to show the page within a date range and for a particular segment such as your Organic SEO traffic.
  5. Further filter your view to see which pages were selected during the user journey (optional).

Not only can you find the page views in Google Analytics but you can furthermore filter the data to reveal some pretty interesting things (including which SEO keywords are driving traffic), where your sales are coming from and more. Let me give you a quick answer first and feel free to check out my other posts below this one to explore things further.

Login to your Google Analytics account and select the website you want to find the page views for

Make sure you are using the correct Google Analytics account and that the view you select is the appropriate one you want to use (if you this set up otherwise just choose the Main View).

Decide Whether You Want to See All Pages or Landing Pages

Landing pages are the first page on your website that your visitors visit from another place such as a Google search. The data shown in the Landing Page can show you where they visit (on your website) next. All Pages view will show you the total number of views a page gets including the visitors who navigated to it from their landing page.

Let’s look at All Pages:

Navigate to find page views in Google Analytics

This will show you the individual pages along with the information you require including the average amount of time spent on each page, the bounce rate and more.

You can further filter the information to show the page view information within a date range and for a particular segment such as your Organic SEO traffic

To filter the date range go to the date selector on the top right of your screen and select the appropriate date range you want to analyse the page views for.

Selecting the appropriate date range for page views in Google Analytics

You can select which segment you would like to view data for too, e.g. Organic Traffic (this is your organic search traffic).

Setting the segment type for page views in Google Analytics

This will then allow you to compare the behaviour of your selected segment against your overall visitor traffic.

You can change the way the data is shown to you in the graph by selecting the appropriate option on the top right hand side of the graph here:

To see the previous and next pages for page views in Google Analytics select the Navigation Summary

by selecting navigational Summary you can then see the previous page and next page the user visits in relation to your currently selected page (this image shows it as /Home).

To select a different page simply head back to the Explorer view and click on the page you want to this information for. Here I have selected “Basket.html”.

So the information in the image below (for example) is now showing me the Organic (SEO) traffic to the Basket.html and how the users navigated there and where they went next.

If I wanted to I could further choose to group the view by categories and show more rows if wanted to.
