Structure of the Behavior Flow report.

Like all flow reports, the Behavior Flow report displays nodes, connections, and exits, which represent the flow of your traffic.

Nodes are points through which traffic flows. Depending on which view you’ve chosen, each node in this report represents one of the following:

  • One value of the starting dimension by which you’re filtering the visualization, e.g., Landing Page or Country/Territory. This type of node is found in the first column of either the Pages or Events view.
  • A single page or collection of pages, e.g., all pages in the wearable directory. This type of node is found in either the Pages or Pages and Events view.
  • A group of pages and events that you’ve grouped together by tracking code, extraction rules, and/or rule definitions. This type of node is found if you select a view for a Content Grouping you’ve set up.
  • An Event, e.g., a video play or download. This type of node is found in either the Events or Pages and Events view.

In this report, page nodes are green, event nodes are blue, and dimension nodes are white. Click a node to highlight or explore traffic through that node, or to see the individual pages or events that are grouped together in that node.

A connection represents the path from one node to another and the volume of traffic along that path. Click a connection to highlight just that traffic segment through the flow.

An exit indicates where users left the flow. In the Events view, exits don’t necessarily indicate exits from your site; exits only show that a traffic segment didn’t trigger another Event. Exits aren’t currently shown in the Pages and Events view.
