Inconsistent data on different views

Avatar

Level 2

Hi there,

 

Relatively new to AA and have been working through training. Something I have noticed when trying to analyse user journeys is and inconsistency in my data which I am trying to figure out.

 

I drag a page into a Flow visualisation and the container is set to 'Visitor'. However the path views for this page on the flow (5,667) differ to the value I have for the page when looking at the top visited pages on the same report. I've checked both the Visits (5,180), Unique Visitors (4,539) and page visits (6,414). My expectation is one of these metrics should match the path views.

 

Any help would be appreaciated.

Hi Huntp,

 

To have Page Views in the freeform table match the Path Views in the Flow viz, click on the gear icon on the Flow viz and check Include repeat instances.

Thank you for your response Andrey. In that case, without this checkbox ticked what is that value referencing? Because it does not match 'Visits' but surely if we are not including repeats (meaning page views total) that would mean that one view = one visit.

Not really. Do not confuse Visits and Path Views, they are completely different metrics. When the Repeats are not included, the Path like Page A > Page A > Page A (page reloads) returns 1 instead of 3.
