What is the value of identifying the most visited pages on a website?

Pages is the first step to going deeper by analyzing a website at page level instead of total traffic to the domain. Understanding the popularity of top pages on a website allows you to:

  • Find which content and topics are “hot and trending”: Where are audiences browsing, and how are their interests changing?

  • Track competitor’s marketing campaigns and promotions: Are my competitor’s marketing campaigns and promotions driving traffic to their site?

  • Track brand and product interest: Which brands and products on my competitor’s site are getting the most attention and driving the most traffic?

  • Understand how audiences browse a competitor’s website: How are audiences using on-site search to browse content or products?

PREMIUM FEATURE: Note that Pages is a premium feature only available in some package levels or through the Popular Pages add-on.

FAQs

Q: Does Popular Pages include Desktop and Mobile web data?

A: Yes, you can view Popular Pages data for Desktop or Mobile web!

Q: Why can’t I see some pages on a website that I know are popular / have high traffic?

A: Some websites have been known to include Personally Identifiable Information in URL strings, especially around ecommerce checkouts and account-related pages. To minimize the risk of revealing personal information in our data, we take a responsible view and exclude pages from Pages view that are marked as ‘noindex’ for search engines and do not appear in Google’s Search Engine Results Pages (SERP).
