"A report that displays the pages before and after a specific page", only the number of instances is displayed. Is it possible to display by Unique visitor and visits?
(Even if you use the display switching function in the workspace, it is displayed only by the number of instances)
Thing you want to do
・Display pages (paths) before and after a specific page for each Unique visitor.
・Or display by the number of visits.
Thank you for reading the question!
use sequential segment you will get the page name and visit/UV before/after a page, or set a prop record a page as referrer to the next page and check the visit, UV. -with this way, you will be able to get the page list, but does not mean how many times are page B before page A as it counts into "Visit Level".
The best way is to use site analysis in Adhoc. It will give you the path view (from-to) and your customizable metrics. Unfortunately, it will be sunset next March
On the other hand, "Flow chart" will be another option.
It is quite practically impossible to get the Previous Page with the Unique Visitors or Visits metrics.
Consider this simple case of one person's journey:
Page A -> Page B -> Page C -> Page B -> Page A -> Page C -> Page D -> Page A
The previous pages for Page A are: (entrance), Page B and Page D
Which one should be reported? And more importantly, how will you make sense of the data to make it actionable?
The Flow visualisation is probably a better tool to use to see which sets of pages are the previous/next ones for a given Page.
When a user clicks we write the page name, module and link they click on to a cookie. When the next page loads we set those 3 values into props referring_page, referring_module and link.
Correlate page to referring page.. or breakdowns in workspace and you'll always have the page before.
For true before and after, flow might be your best bet. I'm still trying to figure it out myself.
