I have two profiles under one web site in Google Analytics. The two profiles are essentially the same except one has defined parameters to exclude (e.g. id, page... etc) so that I could aggregate the page views while ignoring parameters.
Now I begin to think it's a bad idea because my mail chimp (integrated with Google Analytics) only reports campaign data in one profile and not the other. Does data go into one profile and not the other? My impression was that Google Analytics stores all data in one huge database, and all views (profile, dashboard, statistics... etc) are all just database queries -- and even if I deleted profile and recreate it I'd still get the same data. Is this true? Or does each profile hold its own set of data, not shared with other profiles?
