Using Google Analytics to see Which Companies are Browsing Your Website
Hey everybody, Steve Scott from the Tampa SEO Training Academy here, and I have a great question from a former student who wanted to know if there was some way to see what companies might be out there looking at their website. My response was “sorta” if your using Google Analytics.
While, there isn’t a way to see exactly where the company might be and it’s certainly not fool proof, there is some way within Google Analytics to see which companies (those that have their own domains set up anyway) that have been to your website. The way to find this information out it to access your Google Analytics account and in the main Reporting Menu, look under the “Audience/Technology/Network” item. Once you’re in Network, you’ll see listed the different “Networks” that have visited your site starting with the top ten. Now a lot of what you’re going to see displayed are actually going to be ISP’s (Internet Service Providers) like Roadrunner, Verizon and Optimum Online. But for this particular site we can see also visits from Hillsborough County Public Schools, Embark Corporation, IBM, Microsoft Corp, UBS, RCN and many others as well.You can go ahead and expand that down at the bottom right to see the top 100 or more. Again, many of these Networks are going to wind up being ISP’s but lot of them are going to be actual companies. So while it’s not really going to help you too much at knowing WHO at that company was looking at your site it can give you some idea of WHICH companies have people that are actually taking a look at your site. I hope this short tip has helped you out in some way. My name again is Steve Scott with the Tampa SEO Training Academy.
