January 11, 2023 - Last month Google added a new Landing Page Report to GA4, allowing you to easily analyze the impact of your website’s initial pages on user experience, conversions and revenue.
The Landing Page Report reveals how visitors engage with each first-impression webpage – measuring average engagement time per session, number of new users, views attained, as well as total earned revenue. You can monitor which landing pages are helping you reach your goals and optimize accordingly for ultimate success.
As soon as you set up the measurement code for Google Analytics on your website, you will begin to see the pages people land on. The report shows yousession-scoped dimensions, meaning that Google measures when the same user who visits your website twice does so through two different landing pages.
For example, if someone lands on page A in one session and then lands on page B in another session, then page A and B each have a visit.
How to Access the Report
