Comparison between two date ranges in the Analytics section in the Algolia dashboard

The current date range is labeled A in the metrics graphs and uses a solid line. The comparison date range is labeled with B and uses dashes.

You can compare analytics from different days, weeks, months, or use custom time ranges.

Export analytics data

To export any of the metrics from the dashboard, click Download. You can export and download your analytics data as CSV or XLSX files.

Click, conversion, and revenue analytics

Some metrics, such as the conversion rate, need events from your app or website.

Graphs and tables that involve these metrics won’t display data until you start sending events.

Revenue analytics, including add-to-cart and purchase metrics are available on the Build, Premium, and Elevate pricing plans.

Integrate with Google Analytics

If you want to track your search performance with Google Analytics as well as Algolia Analytics, see Integrate Google Analytics.
