Google is rolling out a new metric to all Google Analytics accounts: Session Quality Score.
To derive the score, Google is applying machine learning to predict the likelihood of a visitor converting on a website or app.
Session Quality Score uses the same underlying technology used for Smart Goals. Smart Goals may be used when conversion tracking has not been set up or when there are otherwise too few conversions to enable campaign optimisation.
Why should you care?
With this new metric, advertisers will be able to identify easily any likely-to-convert visitors that don’t convert, and re-engage these visitors through remarketing.
Advertisers who have constructed remarketing audience lists based on site engagement metrics (pages per session, time on site and so) should also evaluate the comparative size and performance of a list based on the Session Quality Score metric.
