Regarding the Property and View limit (50 and 25, respectively), there's no way around that, really, so you'll probably have to break up the sub-d's across several properties. So with that in mind, you could have one GTM container across all sub-d's, and then use a lookup table to determine which data from which sub-d's go into which property. Within the ...

Try this command: ga('send', 'pageview', newUrl); It's used mainly for tracking pages/content loaded with AJAX but don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with "artificial inflating". You can also skip newUrl parameter.

It's just spam :) Scripts can send Pageview and Event data to random GA tracking codes without visiting your site. The best fix is to create a filter that only allows requests originating from your hostname(s). This is a great article on it: http://help.analyticsedge.com/spam-filter/definitive-guide-to-removing-google-analytics-spam/

If you are using multiple trackers, then you need to name your trackers (or at least one of the two, but better to name both so there's no ambiguity). Much like the Classic (_gaq) code you've posted, you would do the same with the Universal trackers and provide the name along with the method: // tracker 1 named "someName" ga('create', 'UA-ZZZZZZZ-X', ...

Midnight is the logic time to end a session - if there has to be a specific time at which each and every session, no matter how long it is open has to be ended. Even if it might seem stupid to count two sessions for a user visiting from 11:55pm - and leaving after 10 minutes. You might want to count visits per day/week/month/year. An in this case there has ...

Thrre is no need to worry about this as it does not affect your server at all it only affects Google Analytics. If your interested in knowing how it has been done you can see details on it at http://www.blackmoreops.com/2014/12/19/darodar-com-referrer-spam/ This is an attack on Google Analytics and to try and trick webmasters into visiting the site by ...

Here are the instructions to view IP addresses in Google Analytics. Add the following code to your pages, before the traditional Google Analytics code: <?php if (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'])) { $ip=$_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'];} elseif (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'])) { $ip=$_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];} else { ...

If you want to check for no events actioned, then you'd want to use Behaviour > Total Events = 0. If you want to check for exclusion for a number of events, you'll want to have a series of "And" conditions to ensure that Event Label does not exactly match your excluded events.

It's a good question but I think the short answer is "you can't" for the reasons you've described. GA doesn't seem to differentiate by http/https but by site identification which I've personally observed is the same. The only way you're going to differentiate is to have two different domains. For example: www.example.com (for http traffic, your present ...

Analytics allows you to customise channel groupings: You can define brand terms and use these to set up a customised grouping. Then use it to filter your conversions in Analytics. I would suggest doing it on an alternative view to the default - that way you can switch back and forth depending on your needs.

Google provides a well documented answer to "How a session is defined in Analytics" A session is a group of interactions that take place on your website within a given time frame. For example a single session can contain multiple screen or page views. Case 1: This would start a new session. Case 2: As long as the session has not expired due to ...

The language, library or framework you use to create HTML has no affect on how Google ranks your site in search results. It is only the content, and partly the HTML, that affects that. Now, that's not to say that jQuery Mobile doesn't put out lousy markup. From what I recall, the one time I (shudders) was forced to use it, I swore it off forever.

Try using a regex match instead, so if your first goal step 1 is on /site/folder/ and your second step 1 is on /site/folder/?query=something, then use Regex: Goal 1, Step 1: Regex: ^\/site\/folder\/$ Goal 1, Destination: Regex: ^\/some\/other\/stuff$ Goal 2, Step 1: Regex: ^\/site\/folder\/\?query=.*$ Goal 2, Destination (same as for Goal 1): Regex: ...

If users don't send you the referrer information about where they came from, it is very hard to pull it out of thin air. You usually just have to live with not knowing much about direct visitors. The reasons that visitors appear as direct are: They type the URL into the browser. They have the page bookmarked. They visit the page from outside the browser, ...

Entrances are the number of instance the user have entered your site through that page. While pageviews are captured everytime that page is accessed by user via any channel. So that depends upon how your site is indexed and user's behavior on your site. And also it depends on page to page(but it is obvious that Entrances >> Pageviews) For example: the ...

You could create a segment based on the resolution and regex the hell out of it. Here is a segment for 400-450x(any height) https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=6YuJbBJzQA2uOuBXuqvWjA it's based on the regex ^4[0-5][0-9]x.* for the Screen Resolution dimension for more info about numeric ranges in RegEx have a look at ...

In your Google Analytics property Go to "Acquisition" -> "All Traffic" -> "Source/Medium". Click on "Secondary Dimension" and type "Network Domain" to make it show up and select it. The so-configured table will show visitor's FQDN.

You can't isolate parts of your standard reports to specific people, but you could try to create custom reports for them which contains only information that you want to share. More info: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1151300?hl=en

It's a Google configuration/identification issue. I believe this happens when you have a domain mismatch either through redirections (or identification via web properties). That is, clicks are going to a domain/path but somewhere it's entered as a different domain/path. Do you have your domain redirecting to another somewhere in the mix or can you check if ...

You could possibly: use the Navigation Summary view in the All Pages report, which will show you the Previous and Next pages, with respect to the page you have in question, or use Custom Reporting to mimic the Navigation Summary report, but you would need to do this in two reports because of the nature of the "Previous Page Path" dimension (and also the ...

You are looking for the "Frequency & Recency" report. You can find it under Audience -> Behavior -> Frequency & Recency. For the selected time range, it tells you how many sessions are from users that visited exactly once, exactly twice, exactly thrice, etc. The report is limited in so far as it doesn't have the number of users associated ...

We had similar migration and we learned few things while we migrated: Your question 1 We've now redirected all traffic from http to https and set the main page to https in the google analytics tool 1) Even if you switch your complete site from http to https the changes would not get reflected in a single day. It will take sometime may be a month for ...
