GWE - New vs. Returning Today
How Many Returning Visitors Did We Get Today?
Shows how many new and returning users have visited the site since midnight.
- New user—has only visited once since midnight
- Returning user—has visited two or more times since midnight
A user starts a new visit each time one of the following conditions is met:
- There is a new browser instance on the user's device.
- A previously started visit that was within the scope of the existing browser instance (cookie) has expired. Note: The visitExpirationTime configuration option determines how many seconds can pass between visits and still have someone be considered a returning visitor. The default setting is 24 hours.
