To set this up, you can see the options I chose by looking at where I put blue dots. I gave the widget a name, selected 2.1 Counter, Traffic Type, Country/Territory, and entered in England.
There’s room for several widgets to be added. This allows you to compare data side by side. I believe this will be a complete time saver.
What do you think of these new Google Analytics widgets? Will you use them?
