For example, if you have two websites one with all the statistics, well-defined profile, and higher metrics. On the other hand, you have another website with no profile information, Uncategorized, unstructured and no other information. Then which website will people opt for? The answer is the well-defined website.
So, these are all the channels or the pathways that let the users come to your website. Some people may have come randomly, some may have already visited your site, some may have seen your ads. There are a lot of possibilities in which a user can come up. But our work is to bring those people and giving them a reason to visit the website again.

But you can filter it out by choosing the categories and applying those things which will take you to the desired result. It even has the feature of grouping in Google Analytics which you can access by going to same option that is “Acquisition”, then you will get another option “All traffic” and after which you will get another option “Channels”.
What are the channels?
Not only that you can even create yourself a lot of channels. But, only one thing that you have to mark here is that “Is channel relevant enough?” and “Is it useful or not for the business?” And you should have every detail about it, but if you don’t know about it then the problem is with you. Instead, if you have a granular channel grouping you can get the best result as it eases the decision making. By accompanying this you will have the data that is accurate and right.
For having the best landing page- analyzing and performance of the landing page is mandatory for the channel’s performance.
