Why not just set it up as an event and then track the event. It will appear in the Events section of your Google Analytics profile and you can also set up a goal based on that event. You can create the event here.

You can push data to analytics on search results site loading that way: analytics.js: ga('send', 'pageview', '/search_results.php?search='+make+' - '+model+' - '+year); But you need to get GET params from URL. Example: function get(key_str) { if(window.location.search) { var query = window.location.search.substr(1); var pairs = ...

The tracking code on its own is not a security risk. Remember, anyone can see this simply by viewing the HTML source of your website. If you're putting your website code on Github because you think other people could use it, you shouldn't include your tracking code because you don't want their visitors to be logged to your account.

Report, which you'd like to use Acquisition -> Sources -> Google Play, uses UTMs for tracking referrals. You've got hint from GA (mouseover on question mark next to "(direct) / none") that this source contains also referrals, because you don't tag links. You couldn't look in your historical data, but if you add UTMs, you will track a future data.

There are some numbers that don't make sense in your data. Here's Bounce Rate data from my Analytics: While the first row is "New Visitors" and the second "Returning Visitors". By exporting this data set, I have the following results on Excel: While the first row is "New Visitors", the second "Returning Visitors", the third the average coming from ...

I think your client has an internal internet application running on their internal IP address of 192.168.110.1. They use that application all the time and it has a link to their website. If that is indeed the case, then Google Analytics would pick up on it. (Why shouldn't it?)

All you need to do is Select "Ad Content" as you secondary dimension. Below is a snapshot: Also, Have you thought about using Google Tag Manager and dataLayers to do this? Its much more efficient. You can use HTML5 data-attributes or you can setup a custom dimension.

That's a good question you have there, I browsed Analytics quite some time to give you the answer below. The truth is that it's not possible to do it the way you want, because the Metric Sessions is not possible to be sorted on the graph as percentage of total. The best thing you can do is to open the Channels and isolate the Organic Traffic and change the ...

Solved it! (or at least I think I did) Bounce Rate: The percentage of times someone arrives, reads and then leaves. It's only applicable if you landed on the page. I was downloading data for all my pages, however bounce rate is only applicable for landing pages. It's set to 0 for non-landing pages. This means when I average bounce rate using all my ...

There is no need for a custom report as suggested by that answer on StackOverflow. There is a report that does exactly what you want: In the left hand list of reports, navigate to: Acquisition Keywords Paid This report lists your keywords. By default it shows 10 but you can use the "Show rows" drop down to show up to 5000 of them at a time. Your goal ...

This data calculation could be complex and you are already aware of Behavior flow which is the best way to do comparative analysis. However, try these alternatives: Set up goal to a particular URL and funnel it down. (recommended, if you have to track any specific channel) OR Create a custom report for a particular Page Depth filter (say 3) and the ...

This blog post tells you how to do it using custom reports: Create a new custom report Set the dimension to "landing page" Set the metric to your conversion goal It sounds like you created a custom report by "page" rather than by "landing page".

You can export the data from your two metrics in CSV format. Then you can load them into a speadsheet and graph them yourself there. There are only a few ways to get multiple lines on the same graph in Google Analytics that I know of and none of them will do exactly what you want. Compare segments This is probably the closest to what you want, but it ...

Non-interaction events would cause this behavior. Senario: User loads page User reads the article for 24 minutes Browser sends non-interactive event to Google Analytics User closes the browser In that case Google would know that the user stuck around for the 24 minutes, but because the non-interactive flag was set on the event, they would still be ...

Note that the number of conversions (=goal completions) won't be affected by a "wrong funnel". So if users get to the destination URL without going through your funnel, they will still count as conversions. Since you mentioned that you have different parameters - Are they always the same? How did you set the goal's destination URL? Is it "Equals to"? ...

The answer to your question is not very simple but resumes to this: The size of the data sample and the relations the data make. If you open Search Engine Optimization -> Queries, you'll notice at the top the notification: Google Search: Top 1,000 daily queries and then, your data is shown as 14.46% of your total sample of about 300.000 impressions in ...

After asking this I found that all I had to do was click on the event category and then click on the Motion Chart option in the upper right of the graph display then change that to show the graph instead of the dots. Also, I was wrong about my event setup, the zip code is the event action so my question should have been about comparing actions for an event ...

You can get the answer you are looking for by viewing the events report but with a "segment" applied that filters out all the traffic that isn't for the page that you are interested in. View the events report Click "+ Add Segment" Click "+ New Segment" Click "Advanced -> Conditions" Add the filter "Page exactly matches /mypage.html" (with the URL for the ...

More about: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/platform/customdimsmets You can push data to analytics on page loading (when user comes to the wizard) and when ends it (by clicking "finish" or something like that). If you send time of entrance and time of exit, difference will be ...

I think that your "problem" is different type of attribution. Google Analytics uses last-click attribution, AdWords prefers first-click. So... if your client ever clicked an campaign ad created in AdWords and make a transaction in another session, it will be counted in AdWords as "adwords conversion". But in Google Analytics it will be conversion from that ...

I find that the Goals system in Analytics is not as reliable as we wanted. Same thing happen to other features and that is mainly because of the source of the tracking used by Google: Javascript. This means that the Code needs to be fired up in order to count as a Goal and depending on the user's security settings or device, that might not happen from time ...
