Goals are designed at the view level. Goals can be connected to particular pages or screens your clients visit, what number of pages/screens they see in a session, to what extent they remain focused site or application and the occasions they trigger while they are there. Each Goal can have a money related worth, so you can perceive the amount of that transformation is worth to your business. Utilizing values for Goals gives you a chance to concentrate on the most astounding quality changes, for example, exchanges with a minimal purchase amount. 

At the point when a visitor to your site or client of your application performs an activity characterized as a Goal, Google Analytics records that as a conversion. That conversion information is then made accessible in various special purpose reports, which are depicted underneath.

Goal types

Goals can be categorized into one of 5 types, listed in the table below:

A specific location loads
Thank you for registering! Webpage or        application screen
Sessions that lasts a specific amount of time or longer
10 minutes or longer spent on a support site
Pages/Screens per session

5 pages or screens have been stacked
An activity characterized as an Event is triggered

Funnels for Destination Goals 

With a Destination Goal, you can determine the way you anticipate that traffic will take. This path is known as a funnel. When you determine ventures in a funnel, Analytics can record where clients enter and exit the path in transit towards your Goal. This information shows up in the Goal Flow and Funnel reports. You may see, for instance, a page or screen in a funnel from which a ton of activity exits before finishing the Goal, showing an issue with that stride. You may likewise see a ton of traffic skipping steps, demonstrating the path to change is too long or contains incidental steps.

Goal ID and Goal sets 

Each Goal you make is alloted a numeric ID, from 1 to 20. Goals are assembled into sets of up to 5 individual Goals. Goal sets permit you to classify the diverse sorts of Goals for your site. For instance, you may track downloads, enrollments and receipt pages in independent Goal sets. These sets show up in your reports as connections underneath the Explorer tab in numerous reports.

Reporting on Goals 

You can analyze the Goal completion rates or change rates, in the Conversion > Goals reports. Goal conversions likewise show up in different reports, including the Conversions > Multi Channel Funnels reports, the Conversions > Attribution reports and the Acquisition reports.

Limits of Goals 

Goals are restricted to 20 for every reporting view. To track more than 20 Goals, make an extra view for that property or alter a current Goal you needn't bother with any longer. 

Goals apply to the information you gather after the Goal has been made. As it were, you must set up Goals in your Google Analytics account before information shows up in your Goal reports and whatever other report that give information on Goals and Goal Conversions. 

Objectives can't be erased, however you can quit recording information for a Goal.

Best practices for Goals 

Use instinctive names for your Goals. This will help you and others comprehend the conversion reports all the more effortlessly. 
Although allotting a Goal value is discretionary, we recommend you do as such to help monetize and evaluate your conversions. Note that Google Analytics additionally utilizes the Goal value information to ascertain different measurements like ROAS (Return on Ad Spend). On the off chance that utilizing a dollar sum as a Goal worth doesn't appear to be appropriate to your site or application, simply utilize a reliable numeric scale to weight and think about your changes. For instance, give low-value Goals a "1" and high-value Goals a "10." 

In an event that you change or repurpose a current Goal, make certain to stay informed regarding when you rolled out the improvement. Since Goals are not connected to verifiable information, changing a Goal will change your conversion information from the purpose of the change. This may prompt perplexity in your reports. (This is another main reason to name your Goals naturally).
