Repeat visitors are the viewers that come to your website more than once. Repeat visitors show that you have a loyal client base that is interested in your content and want more.
Traffic Source- you would also want to know where your traffic is coming from. Are people typing in your URL, being referred to you from somewhere else, or coming in from your organic listings in Google? This will help you know which of your marketing efforts are working.
Bounce Rate – this is the percentage of people who immediately click out of your site upon visiting. This will tell you whether people like your website or not, and if you need to make a change.
