After you have access to the university-wide analytics account and logged in, you can create a segment to narrow down the data pertaining to your website. However, because this account gathers data from most sites here at Oregon State University, you will see data from other OSU websites (explanation below).
You can now apply this segment to any report in Google Analytics.
Click on Apply, which will apply the segment to the data in the report. You can apply this to any report in Google Analytics, such as Behavior or Acquisition.
To see stats about an individual WordPress blog, you'll follow the steps above and set the hostname to "blogs.oregonstate.edu." Then, under Behavior > Site Content > All Pages, search for the name of your blog to see only your blog pages.
Segments group Google Analytics data based on a user’s session, which can include other OSU websites. A session starts when someone goes to a page on your website. It ends when they either leave your website or become inactive for 30 minutes. Because this is a university-wide analytics account, "your website" is any OSU Drupal 7 website. For their session to end, they would need to go to a non-OSU Drupal 7 website, like google.com.
Example: say someone visits your homepage, that means they are a user that has started a session. Let’s say they click on a couple of links in your menu on your homepage. That user’s session now has 3 pages for their session. But let’s say they click on a link that goes to another OSU website. When they click on a link to another OSU website, it is also counted because it is part of the same session of that user. Their session is still ongoing and they now have 4 pages for their session.
This is actually really good information to know how visitors are navigating through related material on OSU websites. You can see possible roadblocks or pinch points to see if people are getting the information that they need. It does add pageviews to your totals when in Google Analytics, but it also gives you rich information about how people are using your site.
To see data for only your website:
These pageview numbers will then match much closer the found in the analytics dashboard. The numbers will never match exactly and that is to be expected. A segment is based on a percentage of sessions, not all of them.
