what is the exact meaning of VISITORS in Optimizely?

Hi there

what is the exact meaning of  VISITORS in Optimizely?

i intergrated with GA and can check User, session, the other metrics on GA now.

but it seems like the different the meaning of VISITORS of Optimizely and VISITORS of GA.

it looks like a same thing, the meaning of VISITORS of Optimizely and Sessions of GA.

is it right?

Visitors are the same thing in Analytics and Optimizely, normally there is a discrepancy, so you need to integrate analytics on your experiments.

Optimizely is only going to target visitors that have to be included within the experiment and meet the URL Targeting condition, where Google Analytics will count any visitor that has come to the site.

Do you have the ability to filter your Google Analytics to filter based on the URL Targeting condition you have in Optimizely?
If you can, are the visitor numbers more in-line with each other?

but i already intergrated with GA and created custom reports.

Im just wondering VISITORS is counted by each browers, devices so on.

if so, do u have any plan to support Cross Device Analytics like GA?

 

Always thx for your service, Optimizely.

To add onto @roman's response, using the Custom Dimensions feature in Google Analytics with Optimizely's "Google Universal Analytics" addon will help you look further into your visitors in Google Analytics.
