Connect your Google Analytics property to your Ryte account to help you determine the importance of different issues, prioritize optimizations, and focus your SEO efforts on pages most valuable to your business.
Pro tip: we recommend setting up a new view in Google Analytics to connect your Ryte account with. (Learn more about setting up a new view here.) Set any filters relevant to your data, but do not set the custom filter "Lowercase / Uppercase". This filter converts the contents of the field into all uppercase or all lowercase characters, which will mean your data won’t be displayed correctly in your Ryte project. (Learn more about view filters here).
Video: Connect your Google Analytics Acount with your Ryte projectOnce you have connected your Google Analytics data, start a new crawl to see Google Analytics data in your reports. All users can integrate their Ryte project with Google Analytics data, but free users do not see Google Analytics data in the new issue reports. If you have a free account and would like to see Google Analytics data in the new reports, you can trial the Basic Suite for 10 days. Note: the Google Analytics data in the columns is based on the last 30 days - if you choose the metric sessions, you see the total of sessions for the previous 30 days prior to the last crawl. For engagement metrics such as bounce rate, you see the average bounce rate for the previous 30 days.
Figure 1: Choose from a range of metrics
Figure 2: Filter according to Google Analytics dataYou can therefore easily see a subset of your pages that get a certain amount of traffic - by filtering according to sessions or pageviews. Or, see the subset of pages with the highest bounce rate. You can filter using Google Analytics metrics in all reports, not just the reports listed above, in which the Google Analytics data is visible as an extra column.
