6. Group By

Grouping similar data together is another great way to gain a better understanding of your traffic quality. You can group by:

  • Country
  • City
  • Region
  • Metro area

The result of the group-by method will appear in the data table (8). For example, group by City will return the list of all cities and their relevant data.
