So we spend time informing and educating clients on key metrics for their communications, and without notice Google Analytics changes their terminology.
Admittedly I think the terms are clearer, but some notice would help so that we can inform clients of the change.
On 16 April 2014 Google Analytics quietly changed the terminology they use within the reports, changing what they call “visits” and “unique visitors.”
Now, visits is named “sessions” and unique visitors is named “users.”
This shouldn’t affect the figures as it’s just renaming existing metrics.
