"Users right now" are real time users. These are the users that are surf your site at that moment when you open Google Analytics. (see fig.)

Every Owner of the site wants to know who visit your site. So, google analytics is the best tool which gives you the complete overview of who visits your site. Not enough for you?
Ok. No Problem. But if I tell you that you can track your users by "Language", "Browser", "Network", "New vs Returning", "Mobile Devices". That's really amazing. I also use to daily open my site Analytics and check daily stats of my site.
How much time users spend on your site (Session)
This is also a very important part of analytics. By knowing this that how much time users spend on your site you can improve the duration for which users stay on your website. (Like you can embed video from youtube) to stay user for more time on your site.
Where did they arrive on your site from (Referrals, Social link, organic search)
Users can arrive on your site from any source either its social media, organic search, or any referral. Google analytics keep track of this also which is useful in many ways. It tells you whether your site has a traffic from Keywords, social links, referrals or not.
"Keywords" I hope you heard this word before. Because keywords are those words which are used to impress users and to attract them to your site. They play a very important role in SEO. Use good and popular keywords in your articles. Share your content especially on facebook, twitter and Google +.
What users do when they are on your site? Where do they click the most?
Curious to know about this? Yes, I know because when you publish a new good quality post and didn't get that amount of traffic which you excepted. Then at that time you think to track your user's activity. If they visit your site then how to make High-Quality Post visible to them. Track where they click the click the most and make more links (referrals) on that particular post.
Track at what time there is Spike in visits.
In my Blog, there are the maximum number of users visit is in between 10 pm - 11 pm. you can also keep track of these activities by simply installing analytics to your site.
The best time to publish a new post is that only when there are the maximum number of users in your site.
