Tell me more about this metric

The New Users metric is essential for demand generation activities, such as advertising, word-of-mouth, social media, and events - any action where the top of the marketing funnel needs to be measured.

Along with the count of Website New Users, it's important to assess the quality of this new traffic. Use metrics such as Bounce Rate, Time on Site, and Average Pages per Session to measure this.
