It provides you with segmented data based on country of origin, browser and device, as well as the total number of visitors on your site.

How does it work?

At a glance, you can see a list of visitors. You will be able to see their location, operating system and browser. If you are interested in additional information about a particular visitor or an overview of your general website traffic, click on the “Visitor Statistics” button at the top of the screen.

Finally, the best part of this feature is the option to take a look at the total number of visitors on your website, or the number of visitors per operating system, per browser, per hour etc. The average number of visitors per hour can help you organize your customer support, while the average per country can help you with marketing ads and campaigns.
