Mobile devices are accessing the internet now more than ever, and savvy marketers are closely watching and optimizing their mobile audiences. It’s helpful to break out this data to see the conversion rate per device so problems or optimization opportunities can be identified. This tutorial will show you how to setup a custom dashboard to analyze your mobile audience:


  1. Create a New Dashboard in the new version of Google Analytics
  2. Add widgets according to what datapoints you want to see, for ours we did:
    • Visits
    • Goal Completions
    • Bounce Rate
    • Pie Graph of Visits grouped by Visitor Type (New vs Returning)
    • Timeline of Visits compared with Pageviews
    • Table with Mobile Device Model, Visits and Goal Conversion Rate
    • Pie graph with Visits grouped by Medium
    • Table with Screen Resolution, Visits, and Goal Conversion Rate
    • Now comes the tricky part. We are going to add a filter to all these widgets with the following to only show mobile traffic:
      • Only Show: Mobile
      • Exactly Matching: Yes

Now that Google has allowed filtering within the new dashboards, they can be created for virtually anything. We are currently building many targeted dashboards for our clients.

What are some other dashboards you’ve seen out there? How do they compare? Let us know in the comments!

  2. These are more valuable than their weight and are treated differently by the moving company.
    They booked appointments with unlicensed movers who advertised on Craigslist
    or other websites. Since First Call Movers have been local movers, long distance movers and have carried out moving assignments for government agencies,
    retail companies yet others, they certainly know a thing much more about moving.

  3. Hair removal in some areas is essential to replace the areas where its growth has stopped.
    Consult with a veterinarian for the proper dosage based on the individual pig’s
    weight. Remember, the foaming action of regular shampoos
    and detergents is for looks only.

  4. In fact you will be fully awake for the entire process and can even view it in a mirror that will
    also be provided for you. Another trick that will allow you to give better form to your nose is a nose splint.
    Breast reconstruction, for those who have undergone a mastectomy,
    as well as cleft lip and palate surgery are common examples of
    reconstructive surgeries.
