LinkedIn Analytics is the platform's native reporting tool that can be used to measure the performance of LinkedIn marketing campaigns. It can also be used to generate reports measuring a variety of metrics including connections, search result appearances, number of comments, number of page follows, number of discussions, clicks, site visits, profile views, number of likes, number of shares, number of group members, number of impressions, and finally leads.
Company page analytics is particularly useful for marketers because it helps evaluate engagement of your individual posts, identify trends across key metrics, understand more about your follower demographics and sources, and finally understand more about your page traffic and its activity.
