Google Analytics: How to See Data from Current Day

April 21, 2011DavidGoogle Analytics

I’m a little embarrassed to say it but it took me a while to figure out how to display my Google Analytics data for “today”.  To see your current day’s statistics in Google Analytics do the following:

1. Login to Google Analtyics as you normally would.

2. On the dashboard, at the top right you will see the default date range is set for the last month:


3. To change this date range simply click on the down arrow.  You will see a set of monthly calendars.  Click on today’s date and then click on todays date a second time.  The first time you click the date it will populate the left date box, and then second time you click (the same date) it will populate the second date box:


Then simply click “apply” at the bottom and you can see today’s data!
