Today I want to share my findings. Every visualization gives us some insights into the data. Data connection with Google Analytics opens pretty quick. You can select up 7 dimensions and 10 measures to work with.

The blog is about traveling, and it’s in Russian. Its main audience is in Russia, Eastern Europe, and United States. Below you can see number of sessions, pageviews, and new users by country and year quarter as well as a map.

And Belarus where I am from is the second by number of pageviews, but the forth by the number of organic searches. I guess my friends and family from Belarus influenced this result.
