I have a page on my site that has the following URL:
solr?filters=type%3Aphoto (let's call this URL A)
Any link to this page on my site reads:
The "%3A" is a URL encoded colon (":"). However, Google Analytics correctly tracks this page URL as:
solr?filters=type:photo (let's call this URL B)
This breaks In-Page Analytics (IPA) in two important ways:
Issue #1: When I go to this page (URL A) inside of In-Page Analytics it says there are 0 hits (and thus no tracking of data on any link clicks on this page).
Issue #2: When viewing any other page in IPA it never reports any links to the page in question because IPA sees the link as URL A but all of the data is for URL B.
Fixing issue #1 is easy: I just manually go to URL B via the IPA path tool, and it correctly shows traffic on this page and all of the link click traffic.
Is there any way to fix issue #2? If I think this is a Google Analytics bug, but I couldn't find any way to contact Google Analytics support.
