This is my first post on these forums... so go easy on me.
Here's the scenario..... I am trying to calculate the cumulative unique visitors hitting a certain page. My setup is as follows...
- Free form table
- Day down the left hand side (in this example lets assume it's 01/03-07/03)
- Unique visitors visiting page X segment along the top
The problem I am running into is that I am double counting visitors when it is split out by day due to their being some visitors that visit the page on different days. So my number is much larger than if I just count how many visitors visit the page between 01/03-07/03.
Has anyone found a way in which I can not count returning visitors when splitting by day? I.e. Only see visitors that I have not already counted on a previous day.
Is there a way to create such a segment for all unique visitors irrespective of what they saw? I attempted to create something very similar and just say that the page 'exists'... but unfortunately it doesn't seem to capture all the visitors (it's about 0.6% out.. whereas when looking at a specific page it was spot on). Could it suggest that my our implementation has some visitors coming to the site but not recording a page hit?
UPDATED: I managed to solve it using 'Visits = exists' instead of relying on page.
