Visitors >>> referred visitors
Report displays an overview of clickstreams of visitors who have been referred to your site. The report runs in reverse chronological order. Most recent visits at the top of the list.
The columns read from left to right; last event, duration, visits (pv) and referrers: links leading visitors to your site.
In the Options bar there are several interesting features.
Results: 'simple' or 'full'
Simple means: you see only the url - which means the actual referring link from site A to your site
Full means: an expanded set of details: the name of the referrer ie 'google' the referring link (url) and the landing/ entry page, meaning where the link led to on your site.
In both 'simple' and 'full' you can click on the name of the referrer in many cases and be taken to the 'page before' which means the search results the visitor saw before clicking on the link to your site.
Results: 20/ 40/ expand (or collapse).
Expand: is interesting because it expands the visible clickstreams to display all the clicks in each of the most recent visits, for each visitor. It means the amount of information shown on the screen for each clickstream increases to include the name of referrer, search term, company/ org, etc.
When the Results are expanded, the Options bar also includes the option to select title and/ or url.
You can click on any visitor icon (puppet) in order to be taken to that visitor's complete clickstream and visitor profile.
Hover over the icon/ puppet in order to see the visitor profile.
There are 'start/refresh' and 'next' buttons at the top and bottom of the page.
Bottom left of the page tells you: 'recently online referred visitors' which gives you the number of first-time visitors to have been online during the last 30 minutes.
A real-time report which displays clickstreams (most recent at the top) of visitors who have been referred to your site.
The definition of a referrer is a third-party domain. In other words the referrering web page or link is not located on your site or domain. An email can also be a referrer, so for example an online mail client like gmail or yahoo or hotmail can be a referrer. Referrers are classified into search engines and non-search engines.
Each visitor is represented by an icon which displays their status and a visitor profile.
