Posted on in category: eMarketing Google Analytics

Custom alerts option of google analytics is a handy tool which can help you in so many ways to quickly get information about sudden increase or decrease in your website traffic, page level traffic or change in user’s behaviour towards your website.

To set up a custom alert, go to Dashboard then customization menu option and select manage alerts.

From there you can add a new alert to setup an alert, lets say you want to be alerted when the traffic to your website is decreased below 1000 sessions, so you can quickly analyze the ranking of your keyword or if there is a server down time or if there is a speed issue that is causing slow traffic to your website.
