Personalization reports

Personalization summary

Each personalized page, which you track, generates a personalization report. A personalization page is a page either fully personalized for a specific audience segment, or one serving several segments with personalized widgets. Sitefinity Insight automatically creates a personalization report for your page when visitors access any of the personalized versions of the page. In addition, you track the page and its content, regardless of whether the page has multiple URLs leading to it.

NOTE: Having personalized a page in Sitefinity CMS, you can directly access Sitefinity Insight personalization reports from Sitefinity CMS. For more information, see Create a personalized version of a page.

In the Personalization reports screen, you see an overview of all reports. For each personalized page, you see an overview report of the following:

  • Personalized views
    Represents the total number of page views for all personalized versions of the page.
  • Total views
    Represents all views of all versions of the page, including personalized and non-personalized versions.

You can sort the table by column.

You can choose the period for which you want to see a reports’ charts, for example, just for yesterday or as far back as the past six months. To do this, use the dropdown box, located below the page title.

To see a detailed report about a personalized page, click on the page name.

General metrics

The first section of the report shows you general overview of your personalized page performance metrics. From left to right, you can see the following information:

  • Personalized page
    Displays the name of the report and its associated page.
  • Total pageviews
    Displays the total views of the page, containing both personalized and non-personalized versions. You can see the number of views for the currently selected period, the percentage increase from the previous period, and the total pageviews since the page has been tracked.
  • Personalized views
    Displays the number of pageviews of the personalized versions of this page only. You can see the number of views for the currently selected period, the percentage increase from the previous period, and the total pageviews since the page has been tracked.
  • Percentage
    Displays the ratio of personalized pageviews to total pageviews. You can see the ratio for the currently selected period, the percentage increase from the previous period, and the ratio since the page has been tracked.

 Page views by segment

This report gives a granular view of visits. Use this section to understand how each segment contributes to the page views.

On the right of the report, you can filter the segments. To do this, click icon: pencil . By default, All segments are displayed.

On the left is a pie chart that displays the relative number of pageviews per segment for the specified period. If the segment size is less than 3%, it is not displayed individually, but grouped under Other.

On the right, you can see a table containing the following additional information about each segment:

  • Segment
    Displays the name of the segment.
  • Pageviews
    Displays the pageviews of this segment for the selected period.
    These are not unique pageviews.
  • Share of total pageviews
    Displays the ratio of this segment views to total pageviews.
  • Share of personalized views
    Displays the ratio of this segment views to all personalized pageviews.
  • Change from previous … days
    Displays how this segment contribution to pageviews has changed from the previous period.

Daily page views by segment

The charts illustrate the number of pageviews for the period that you have specified in the dropdown box at the top of the page.

The first chart illustrates the number of daily pageviews – each personalization segment is represented by a separate line. To include or exclude segments from the chart, click icon: pencil

The second chart displays the total number of pageviews of both personalized and non-personalized versions of the page.

NOTE: If two or more widgets are personalized for the same segment, the chart in the personalization report represents just one personalized view hit. For example, if you have two content blocks on the page that show Case studies and Whitepapers to the same user segment - IT Managers, then the personalized view hits for this segment is 1. If, however, one content block shows Case studies for IT Managers and Free Trial for Developers, then the personalized view hits are 2 since the widgets serve two different segments.

Attribution to conversions

This report provides you with the current segment contribution to each conversion, which you defined in the personalization report for this page. The columns represent the conversions, and you can click them to navigate to the conversion tracking report for the respective conversion. The rows are the personalization segments. Each cell is encoded to a heat map, which visually represents how this segment contributes to the conversion. To see the ratio of each segment contribution, the total conversions, and conversion rate, hover over the respective table cell.

NOTE: When no segment contributes to a conversion, the column is not displayed.

NOTE: When a segment’s contribution is Negative, it means that this segment’s conversion rate is less than the conversion rate of this conversion. For more information, see Attribution and conversions.

Attribution details

To see details about how your personalized segments contribute to conversions, click Show attribution details. A table appears. 

To choose which conversion to show, select it in the Show … dropdown box on the right. Each row in the table contains the values of key statistics for each segment. For more information about their meaning, see Visitors and conversions.

NOTE: If you reorder the table, All Visitors and Visitors to non-personalized version always remain as the top rows.
