...or use the "All Pages" dropdown menu

Instead of searching for a specific page, you can also filter by page type in the dropdown menu if your search has a broader focus at first. Make sure that your time frame is set to the desired period.

View the page metrics

Now you can see the page and all of the data for the specific page that you searched for. In this example, the Customer Case Studies page has received 15,465 views in the assigned time period. That means that every time someone was on this page, it counted as a view. The source of the view data is the tracking code.

Keywords

There are 43 keywords, being tracked by the Keywords tool, that the Case Studies page ranks for, during the specified time period. Again, click on the number of keywords for the page to view the complete list of tracked keywords, their rank, their monthly search volume, and their difficulty. Examine the keywords with a low rank (meaning they appear towards the beginning of search engine results) that have a high monthly search volume and a low difficulty and compare them to the amount of overall visits to the page. Observe if there is a positive correlation between your keyword and the number of site visits. From here, you can determine if you want to adjust your current keywords or add more.
