Step by Step: Analyzing your Users’ Behavior Flow with Pathmonk Intelligence

1. Identify Your Goal 

Begin by identifying the key objective you wish to achieve with your website. This could be increasing product sales, generating leads, or enhancing user engagement with content.

Based on your objective, access the Web Pages report on the left menu of Intelligence. Select a page on your website that is critical to achieving this goal. This could be a landing page, a product page, a contact form, or any other page that is vital to your conversion funnel.


Set the dates for analysis, and if necessary, compare the focus page against another page or a different time period for comprehensive insights.

2. Understand the Top Entry Pages 

In the Web Pages report, scroll down to the Top Entrance Pages section, with the entry pages leading to your focus page. These are the pages where users begin their journey before arriving at the focus page.


Assess the content and layout of these entry pages. Are they effectively guiding users to the focus page? Understanding this can help you identify opportunities to streamline the path to conversion.

Based on your findings, consider optimizing these entry pages. This might involve clearer navigation cues, more compelling CTAs, or ensuring the content aligns with user intent.

3. Map Your Behavior Flow 

While staying in the Web Pages report, go to the Visited Pages section to visualize the path users take through your site after visiting that page. Are they proceeding along your desired conversion path, are they dropping off, or visiting pages that you were not expecting?


For instance, you can analyze what are the most frequently visited pages of your website after landing on your homepage, or what your visitors do after seeing one of your product pages.

Look for patterns or common exit points. These are critical areas where your website may be losing potential conversions.

Based on your analysis, implement changes to address these drop-off points. This might involve page optimizations, adding additional information or reassurance, or simplifying the next steps in the conversion process.

Understanding the Importance of Visitor Behavior Analysis

Understanding user behavior is crucial for several compelling reasons, especially in the context of digital products and services. It provides the foundation upon which successful user experiences are built, influencing everything from website design to product development.

Here’s why understanding user behavior is so important:

1. Enhancing User Experience (UX)

Understanding user behavior allows designers and developers to create more intuitive and enjoyable user experiences. By knowing what users want, expect, and how they tend to interact with digital interfaces, companies can design products that are easier to use, meet user needs more effectively, and are more engaging.

2. Increasing Conversion Rates

A deep understanding of user behavior can lead to significant improvements in conversion rates. By analyzing how users navigate a site, where they spend the most time, and what actions they take before converting, businesses can optimize their websites and marketing strategies to encourage more of these desired actions.

3. Identifying and Solving Problems

User behavior analysis can highlight issues or barriers that users encounter on a website or within an app. These might be technical problems, confusing navigation, or content that doesn’t meet their needs. Identifying these issues allows for targeted improvements, enhancing the overall quality of the digital product.

4. Personalizing User Interactions

Personalization is key to engaging and retaining users. Understanding individual and group behaviors enables companies to tailor experiences, recommendations, and content to match user preferences and past interactions, leading to a more personalized and relevant experience for each user.

A positive user experience, driven by an understanding of user behavior, is critical for customer retention. Users are more likely to remain engaged with a product or brand that continually meets their needs and expectations, offers a seamless experience, and values their feedback.

6. Optimizing Marketing Strategies

Marketing efforts can be greatly enhanced by understanding user behavior. This knowledge allows for more targeted, effective campaigns that speak directly to the user’s preferences and behaviors. It also helps in identifying the most suitable channels and messages for reaching specific user segments.
